Facial Laser Skin Resurfacing
As you get older, your skin changes. Age or sun spots can appear, your complexion can become dull, and lines or wrinkles can form around your features. Both genetics and lifestyle factors can impact how quickly your skin ages. While you cannot stop the aging process, there are skin treatments that can slow the noticeable effects on your face. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer face laser skin resurfacing at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.
Laser skin resurfacing can dramatically improve sun-damaged or aging skin. There are different types of laser treatments – some focus on removing the top layer of damaged skin while others only stimulate deeper layers of skin to form new collagen. Both can help increase collagen levels in the skin and result in more youthful skin with fewer wrinkles, fading of scars, and better overall tone or texture. The laser light energy can impact the targeted skin cells, even deep below the surface, to stimulate healing and new collagen production.
Reduce Facial Wrinkles and Age Spots
Laser skin resurfacing can be used at any age to eliminate certain flaws on the skin. Young adults can enjoy the benefits of fading acne scars and evening the skin tone. As you get older, facial laser skin resurfacing can reduce facial wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, rejuvenating the tone and firmness of the skin. The amount of recovery or downtime needed depends on the type of laser treatment used. CO2 laser skin resurfacing can remove the top layer of the skin and stimulate deeper layers for collagen production, requiring some downtime after treatment. Other non-ablative laser treatments do not affect the top layer of skin and need no recovery after treatment.
If you have facial skin flaws like wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring or age spots, face laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the Washington, DC, metro area to schedule a skin treatment consultation.
