Skin Resurfacing, Laser Therapy Skin, Vein & Hair Treatments
Skin resurfacing works by increasing cellular energy and encouraging healthy regeneration.
Skin resurfacing has been used in dermatology for at least decades. Recent advances have not only increased the efficacy, but broadened its scope of usefulness. Skin resurfacing is used for everything from hair removal to the destruction of cancerous skin growths.
The benefits include the fact that it is non-invasive and virtually painless. Although sometimes minimal side effects can occur, like temporary pain or discomfort or blistering, most would agree that laser therapy is certainly worth considering.
Your dermatologist at Camelback Dermatology & Skin Surgery can let you know if laser therapy might be right for your condition.
What is Skin Resurfacing Used For?
We offer a wide variety of treatments and many conditions respond very well to skin resurfacing, such as:
- Overgrowth of hair
- Acne scars
- Hyperpigmentation (age spots)
- Skin lesions, warts or scars
- Wrinkles or fine lines
- Sagging skin/jowls
- Spider veins, broken capillaries or vascular lesions
There are even more skin conditions that may warrant consideration of skin resurfacing. Talk to your dermatologist at Camelback Dermatology & Skin Surgery to see if this is the right treatment for you.
Am I a Candidate?
Skin resurfacing is effective for many conditions, including those brought about by lifestyles and habits.
If you regularly sunbathe or have a history of drinking or smoking, you may need treatment for sun damage, wrinkles, and broken capillaries. Skin resurfacing is not preventative, so if you indulge in the same kind of behaviors, the initial problem will return.
The best candidates for skin resurfacing are those who are willing to do more to protect their skin. That way, the results will be lasting.
There are others who might not respond well to skin resurfacing. This includes those who:
- Are currently taking certain acne medications
- Are vulnerable to excess scarring
- Are pregnant
- Are taking blood-thinning medication or aspirin daily
- Have certain skin resurfacing disorders
- Are prone to sunburns or who currently have a tan or sunburn
- Have active acne breakouts
- Are dark-skinned
Your dermatologist will advise you as to whether or not you are a good candidate. Often, the reason someone isn’t a good candidate has to do with the potential for visible scarring after treatment. But all in all, a healthy individual with relatively good skin and no underlying conditions can expect to be a good candidate for this treatment.
