Laser Skin Resurfacing
The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple: replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. Techniques for skin resurfacing have made enormous advances, allowing nearly everyone to achieve beautiful, healthier complexions. Many systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing. At Blair Plastic Surgery's Laser Centers, we offer two systems: the Sciton Profile Contour Erbium Laser and the Matrix CO2 Fractionated Laser. Both systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing.
The primary targets of laser skin resurfacing include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose lower eyelid skin
- Crow's feet around the eyes
- Pucker marks (smoker's lines) and frown lines
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls
The greater the amount of the epidermis removed, the greater the results seen in terms of reduction of wrinkles, brown spots, and other superficial imperfections. With deeper penetration and removal of the epidermis, we see greater stimulation of the dermis which can react by rebuilding and restructuring lost collagen and elastin fibers. With the CO2 fractional laser treatments, only a "fraction" of the skin’s surface is treated by the laser, leaving small “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to get back to normal activities sooner. It can therefore penetrate more deeply and is the treatment of choice for remodeling of acne scars and overall skin tightening.
Matrix CO2 Fractional Laser Benefits
- Causes immediate skin tightening
- Reduces the appearance of large pores
- Reduces wrinkles and fine lines, and softens deeper frown lines
- Noticeably improves skin tone and texture
- Stimulates new collagen formation and plumps the skin
Most effects of the fractionated treatment become visible right away, whereas others – such as new collagen formation, which leads to continued inner tightening – build up gradually and become more evident over time. Therefore, most people look even better 3-6 months after the procedure.
