Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing makes use of a laser to send out brief pulses of high energy light that are absorbed by water and substances in the skin known as chromophores. The light is changed into heat energy and the heat then destroys thin sections of skin, layer by layer. As the wounded area heals, new skin grows to replace the damaged skin that was removed during the laser treatment. Some lasers only tighten the skin by heating it but do not destroy the skin. Laser resurfacing is generally very precise and causes little damage to the surrounding skin and tissue. It’s most frequently done on the face, but might be done on the skin in other areas of the body. The hands, neck and chest might be avoided as skin in these areas does not heal as well as it does in other areas. It tends to thicken and scar due to the laser treatment.
