Laser Skin Resurfacing is the ultimate in skin rejuvenation. Laser Skin Resurfacing is a precise, predictable, noninvasive and safe procedure. We use advanced laser technology to erase wrinkles, remove age spots, skin growths, smooth scars, and eliminate the evidence of sun-damaged skin. With Laser Skin Resurfacing the surface of the skin can be “refreshed” revealing the new skin underneath and stimulating the growth of new skin cells, collagen, and elastin. This new skin will look softer, silkier and smoother for a more youthful appearance.
Laser Skin Resurfacing will also give a very significant lift and tightening to the skin by increasing the skin tone and volume. Even the most delicate skin around the eyes and the lips can be treated safely with laser resurfacing to reduce or eliminate those unwanted crow’s feet and lip lines. Full face laser resurfacing can delay or eliminate the need for an invasive surgical facelift. This laser treatment can be done at the same time as eyelid surgery for the most dramatic and natural appearing makeover.
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing is a procedure that gives the ultimate in lift and wrinkle reduction without the use of scalpels or sutures. The CO2 laser emits an intense beam of energy that heats and vaporizes tissue instantly. It is so precise that the normal surrounding tissue is not affected. Deep creases and frown lines will be significantly softened and acne scars minimized. The new skin will be softer, smoother, and tighter. If you want to turn back the hands of time, look to CO2 laser for the facelift of the future.
How is Laser Resurfacing Different from a Facelift?
A facelift is an invasive surgical procedure that involves cutting through skin, muscles and other tissues of the face. The facial tissues are then pulled to tighten them, the excess is cut off and the remaining tissues are sewn together. The complications of a facelift include nerve damage and paralysis, scarring and a too-tight “plasticized” look. A facelift cannot change the texture of the skin or address the imperfections in the quality of the skin.
Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive treatment requiring no cutting or sewing. There is no pulling of the skin or risk of nerve damage. Dr. Lavrich uses the laser to precisely remove the outer layer of the skin revealing the undamaged skin underneath. The result is a very natural, younger look with improvement in skin tone, texture, lift, and volume.
Is Laser Resurfacing Right for Me?
Wrinkle creams and cosmetics just touch the surface of the skin. Now you can make permanent and natural changes to the skin from the inside out. If you are looking to rejuvenate the skin for a more refreshed look or are interested in a significant lift of the facial skin for a more youthful appearance then laser resurfacing could be right for you. Laser resurfacing can give you a natural look that can vary from subtle to dramatic. In a private consultation, Dr. Lavrich will address your needs and concerns.
