LASER TREATMENT

Lasers are medical devices which produce high-energy, focused beams of intense, “single-colored” light and heat which have been found through ongoing research and extensive clinical experience to selectively interact, in very useful ways, upon various tissues within the skin and body. The amount and distribution of energy in laser light is more precisely delivered over mechanical application of a scalpel or topical chemicals for the successful treatment of many aesthetic and medical conditions.  Since their 1958 discovery, lasers have become a powerful industrial tool, but their applications in medicine have been truly revolutionary.  

Laser resurfacing is a very controlled burning procedure during which the laser vaporizes superficial layers of facial skin, removing not only wrinkles and lines caused by sun damage and facial expressions, but also acne scars, some folds and creases around the nose and mouth, unwanted pigmentation, and even precancerous and benign superficial growths. In a sense, the laser procedure creates a fresh surface over which new skin can grow.  In the course of treating acne scars with a laser, physicians noticed that after resurfacing the skin around the scar to make the scar less visible, small adjacent wrinkles were greatly diminished.  Collagen is the principal protein of the skin, tendons, cartilage, bone and connective tissue. It is a key fibrous protein in the skin's connective tissue, and it helps give the skin its texture. Natural aging and such factors as sun damage and smoking help break down the collagen layer so that the skin's once smooth surface develops wrinkles. New, more youthful collagen actually forms after laser treatments.
