Laser resurfacing is more than just a cosmetic treatment. It can treat a wide variety of permanent skin conditions and scars, including old acne scars, stretch marks, and scars from surgeries and accidents. The treatment can also be modified to reduce age-related skin conditions, such as wrinkles, crow’s feet, and age spots. Not only can the treatments of a positive effect on your outlook and self-image, the treatments can make the scarred skin and surrounding tissue physically healthier.
But many people worry that laser scar reduction or laser resurfacing treatments aren’t the right courses for them. You may worry that seeking medical treatment for scars is an over-reaction or that the treatment isn’t a right fit. Many people also worry that laser treatments are an expensive, complex, or long ordeal that they can’t justify.
While conventional surgeries may have once required a lengthy hospital recovery or were a more serious choice to weigh the pros and cons of, laser resurfacing is another choice altogether. Laser scar reduction treatments have a shorter recovery period and are much less invasive than their traditional alternatives. Procedures like non-ablative laser resurfacing, which promote healthy skin growth below the skin’s surface, are made up of even shorter treatments that have you walking in and out of the office in under an hour.
You may also wonder if now is the right time to try the procedures. Other cosmetic medical procedures, such as plastic surgery and hair treatments, have long been in the spotlight as procedures that are improving but still incomplete. But laser surfacing and laser skin treatments provide natural results. They reduce scarring and skin imperfections with little to no scarring, and most last resurfacing treatments promote natural skin growth instead of skin removal or artificial growth.
