Even if you take good care of your skin, it’s constantly under pressure from the environment, your diet, lifestyle factors, genetics, and the aging process.
Laser skin resurfacing treatments can improve your skin’s texture and give it a more youthful glow by boosting collagen production.
Harmanpreet Buttar, MD, and our team at Vital Clinic and Spa offer a range of medical and cosmetic treatments at our clinic in Cypress, Texas.
Can laser skin resurfacing give me younger looking skin?
Fine lines and wrinkles are usually among the first signs of aging, and they can start to appear as early as your 20s, depending on factors like your skin type, health, lifestyle, and genetics.
As you age, collagen production begins to decline, and the skin loses its elasticity.
Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment designed to stimulate collagen production, improving your skin from the inside out.
But improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is just one of the ways that laser skin resurfacing can make your skin look smoother and tighter. It’s also used to treat several other common skin problems, such as:
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Acne scars
- Enlarged pores
We offer laser skin resurfacing using the Cutera Laser Genesis and Holly Facial. These type of ablative laser uses heat to penetrate the skin and spur fresh collagen production in place of the damaged skin cells.
A topical anesthetic treatment is applied to the skin before treatment to numb your face and keep you comfortable during the resurfacing procedure. Your skin may look red and irritated for a day or so after your treatment as your cells rejuvenate, and you may have to avoid wearing makeup. Also avoid direct sunlight as you heal.
We’ll provide detailed instructions on how to take care of your skin after your laser resurfacing treatment.
Is laser skin resurfacing right for me?
Laser skin resurfacing works for most skin types, but it’s not right for everyone. The first step is to schedule a consultation to determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you. Dr. Buttar and our team will evaluate your skin and recommend the best treatments for you.
The most important thing to keep in mind is that all cosmetic treatments, whether it’s Botox, laser skin resurfacing, or body contouring, should always be performed by a medical doctor or licensed and experienced esthetician for your safety and to achieve the best results. You can always trust our expert team to perform your cosmetic services safely.
