What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin rejuvenation, also called “laser skin resurfacing,” reduces pigmentation, surface wrinkles, and irregularities. Options include chemical peels, laser treatments, and light-based procedures. Laser skin rejuvenation for men at our Grand Rapids practice typically includes one of the following approaches:
- Ablative resurfacing carefully removes the upper layers of the skin so that new skin can form and collagen can be rebuilt and enhanced.
- Fractional resurfacing creates microscopic treatment points and may require several treatments to remodel your skin over time.
- Non-ablative, superficial resurfacing removes only the uppermost skin cells and requires repeat treatments to achieve and maintain improvement.
Why might I consider laser skin rejuvenation?
Looking younger and improving facial wrinkles, scars, surface irregularities, and discoloration may be attained through laser skin resurfacing, the most aggressive treatment we use for men in our Grand Rapids practice. It can improve stubborn, resistant skin that has been through years of neglect.
