How does laser resurfacing work?
I don’t understand how laser skin resurfacing can be used to treat deep wrinkles. Could you please explain the process to me? I’m from San Diego and interested in some facial rejuvenation.
Laser resurfacing delivers heat to the deeper layers of skin where collagen exists. The heat causes collagen to reform, thus resulting in tighter, smoother skin. Initially, all the lines and wrinkles are gone due to swelling. After swelling resolves, some of those lines/wrinkles return. Collagen reformation occurs over several weeks/months; therefore, the skin continues to improve in appearance after laser resurfacing. Proper skin care is essential to maintain/enhance results achieved with laser resurfacing. Some very deep lines may still benefit from filler after laser resurfacing.
