Laser Skin Resurfacing is a nonsurgical procedure which uses lasers to remove damaged upper layers of your skin to smooth and tighten the skin, remove wrinkles and correct any pigmentation issues. The laser removes your epidermis while heating the dermis to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. This results in new smoother and firmer skin.
During your initial consultation the provider examines your skin while you explain your goals for treatment. The provider will make recommendations for you based on your physical needs and aesthetic desires.
