Many of us look in the mirror and see something about our complexion that we’d like to change. Some of us dislike our sun spots or uneven pigmentation or skin texture. Others of us want to fill in wrinkles and eliminate age spots or minimize scars. Laser skin resurfacing may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Keep reading to find out if this cutting-edge treatment is right for you.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
There are many benefits to laser skin resurfacing. There’s a good chance that some of these benefits could improve the quality of your skin. If you’re wondering if laser skin resurfacing is right for you, you’re not alone. Here are some factors we consider when assessing if laser skin resurfacing is the right treatment option:
You Don’t Have Active Acne
Having acne scars or a history of acne won’t preclude you from laser skin resurfacing. However, if you have active acne, we recommend that you hold off until you no longer have an active breakout. You should also wait to have this treatment if you have taken the acne medication isotretinoin, sold under the brand names Claravis and Amnesteem, in the past year.
You Have Sun-Damaged Skin
If you have sun spots or other signs of sun damage, you may be an excellent candidate for laser skin resurfacing. This treatment removes the dead outer layers of skin, revealing fresh, healthy skin underneath.
You Have Wrinkles, Age Spots or Uneven Skin Texture
If your face is showing signs of aging, such as age spots, wrinkles or fine lines, you are most likely an excellent candidate for laser skin resurfacing. As you age, your body starts producing collagen at a reduced rate. This leads to sagging skin, wrinkles and other lines. By stimulating your body’s collagen production rate, you can reduce or eliminate all signs of aging from the treatment area, including sagging skin, fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
