Are brown spots on your skin making you look older than you feel? If so, you might want to take a look at how laser skin resurfacing can help. You may be able to shave years off your appearance and feel better about yourself as well.
Too much exposure to the sun over the years is the most common reason for the formation of brown spots. Many people refer to them as age spots because they tend to make one look older. The reality is, however, that they most likely formed in response to the sun’s UV rays. As a result, they may be more accurately referred to as sun spots. Whatever you choose to call them, the fact remains that they can have a negative impact on one’s appearance.
Whenever your skin is exposed to the sun, it will produce extra melanin as a way of protecting itself against the damage that the UV rays can cause. Since melanin is what supplies pigment, increasing it will make the skin look darker. This is how you achieved that tan that you may have worked so hard for in previous years. If this activity is repeated through the years, the melanin will gather in small patches of concentrated levels. These places become visible in the form of brown spots.
Laser skin resurfacing is a method by which these unwanted spots can be removed. It can be done with the use of ablative lasers. These devices direct laser energy onto the surface of the skin. The heat from the laser will vaporize the skin tissue one layer at a time. This prompts the body’s healing processes to go into motion and grow new tissue to replace the treated skin with newer, healthier skin. The new tissue that grows back will be free from the concentrated melanin that is causing the brown spots. As a result, you will have younger-looking skin that is free from these blemishes. It will have a smoother texture and more even tone.
After the therapy, you may even notice that the skin becomes tighter as well. Tighter skin will be free from unwanted lines and wrinkles as well as sagging. This happens because the laser energy stimulates the skin to grow additional collagen, which is the substance that provides fullness and tightness. The number of treatments you will need to get optimal results will depend on your goals and specific skin issues. When you come in for your consultation, we will help you get a better idea of what you can expect from laser skin resurfacing.
