Laser skin resurfacing is the latest innovation in
facial resurfacing techniques. Once healed, not only does your skin
look better, it actually is healthier too. This technique replaces
older, photo-aged skin with youthful, healthy skin.
As babies, we were born with smooth, soft,
blemish-free skin. As we age, our skin is affected by sun
exposure, smoking, hormones and pollution, and these environmental
influences create skin imperfections which worsen as we age.
Although dermabrasion and chemical
peels have offered some hope for patients in the past, risk of scarring,
pigmentation problems, discomfort, long recovery periods and lack of
sufficient cosmetic results have kept people from having the beautiful
skin they want. Experience the latest alternative to traditional
treatments with a new procedure - Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Unlike earlier techniques such as
dermabrasion or chemical peels, laser resurfacing uses up to the minute
computerized technology to assure maximal benefit with reduced down
time. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with cosmetic eye or
(blepharoplasty), eyebrow, forehead
brow lifts, or with
procedures on the lower face such as a midface lift, S lift, or a lower
facelift to achieve the best possible results for you.
Laser Facial Resurfacing is performed
using a beam of laser energy which vaporizes the upper layers of the
damaged skin at specific and controlled levels of penetration. It is
clear that Laser Facial Resurfacing may offer a number of advantages
over other resurfacing methods: precision, little (if any) bleeding and
less postoperative discomfort when performed by experienced surgeons.
Not every practitioner
who offers laser surgery has the same level of experience and skill with
laser use. That is why it is especially important to use a surgeon
adequately trained in the procedure.
One safety measure is to find out
whether your surgeon has privileges to perform Laser Facial Resurfacing
at an accredited hospital or Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). The fact
that Dr. Kass has privileges to perform Laser Facial Resurfacing at many
area hospitals and ACS's insure that he has been fully trained in this
