Another Step Closer to Clear Skin With Laser Skin Resurfacing

Featured Image

As we age, our skin starts to lose elasticity, which can lead to blemishes and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing is a rejuvenating treatment that can help restore your skin, resulting in a younger-looking appearance. Due to the treatment's low downtime, it is ideal for sensitive areas, such as the neck, hands, chest, and face. If you want to find out if you are a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing, schedule a consultation with board-certified physicians Dr. Pina Panchal and Dr. Linette Rivera at Bella Mia Medical Aesthetics and Laser Institute in Tampa, FL.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment option that helps to improve the skin’s complexion, appearance, and tightness. This procedure works on most age groups and skin types because of the safe and noninvasive nature of the treatment. Laser skin resurfacing helps treat:

  • Signs of aging

  • Sun damage

  • Pore damage

  • Acne scars

  • Even out skin tone and texture

  • Warts

  • Sagging skin

  • Wrinkles and fine lines

  • Scars

  • Crow’s feet

This treatment can provide similar results to more invasive procedures, and you may even see improvements after one 30-minute procedure. With little downtime, you may be able to resume normal daily activities almost immediately after your laser treatment.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

This treatment is designed to smooth your skin, leading to a clearer and younger appearance. When your laser skin resurfacing procedure begins, laser beams penetrate the surface of the skin to jumpstart cell turnover. The laser energy also helps to encourage collagen production, which plumps skin and helps to renew your skin. Since new cells are developing, you may look younger without the painful side effects of invasive procedures. This treatment helps rejuvenate the skin over several sessions to let you achieve clearer skin. Final results could take 4 – 6 appointments. While you may see results after one treatment, it could take several to see the final results. At Bella Mia in Tampa, FL, you can consult with Dr. Panchal and Dr. Rivera to decide if laser skin resurfacing is the right option for you.

What type of laser skin resurfacing treatment do I need?

There are two types of laser skin resurfacing, ablative lasers and non-ablative lasers. The first thing you will do is have a consultation with one of our providers to see what the best option is for you. Ablative lasers remove layers of skin and get rid of bigger blemishes, like scars, warts, and wrinkles. Non-ablative lasers do not get rid of the skin, so they mostly work on smaller blemishes, like rosacea, acne concerns, and spider veins. After the procedure, you must give your skin time to heal before you can have another session. This can take up to three weeks, depending on the type of laser resurfacing done. You may find yourself seeing results after your first treatment.
