Laser skin resurfacing, otherwise known as laser peel or lasabrasion, is a procedure that uses laser technology to remove damaged, unwanted skin with precision, one layer at a time. It can be particularly beneficial for those who suffer from acne scarring, sun damage, wrinkles and aging, as well as other superficial irregularities like stretch marks and lesions.
The treatment will use laser beams to target tissues damaged by the sun or aging, and stimulate the growth of new skin cells. It will basically remove the outermost layer of the skin – the epidermis – to reveal new skin cells below and trigger the growth of collagen. This is done so that, when the area heals, you’ll have skin that is smoother and firmer than before.
