How Does Skin Resurfacing Work?
Is your skin starting to look dull and dry? Aging and the effects of the sun can cause changes to the skin that eventually show up on the face. Laser skin resurfacing can correct these issues, and improve the appearance of your skin. But how does skin resurfacing work?
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is highly effective for rejuvenating the skin and fixing persistent skin problems. It reverses signs of aging and reduces scars and sun damage by building up collagen.
The Pixel CO2 laser manufactured by Alma Lasers is one of the most advanced skin resurfacing options on the market. It is a safe, versatile system that has several treatment applications for minimizing the effects of aging and treating skin concerns such as uneven pigmentation, large pores, and photodamage.
How Does the Pixel CO2 Laser Work?
The lens of the Pixel CO2 laser divides the laser beam into microscopic pixels that create micro-injury sites. These treated sites are surrounded by cells that are left untreated, and as the natural repair process is activated these areas generate new collagen and skin cells. Collagen firms the skin, improves the texture, and gives it a more youthful appearance.
Treatment takes 30 minutes to complete, but this may vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
During the first few days of healing, patients will experience some mild redness, as well as flaking of the skin. Downtime is minimal since only certain zones of the skin are treated, and the entire top layer of the skin is not removed. Some results can be seen about one week after treatment, but improvements will continue in the following weeks as collagen rebuilds.
