Recognizing the signs that skin could be improved through laser skin resurfacing often eludes people. Perhaps it is that the changes are gradual, only becoming noticeable when one feels they would no longer benefit from skin rejuvenation. Other potential patients may believe they have not yet reached the age where it is necessary to undergo such a procedure. Though many factors may play into the decision to undergo cosmetic treatments to improve the tone and texture of the skin, there are some common signs.

Skin of the Face, Chest, and Hands is Sun Damaged

The effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays are one of the most common contributors to premature aging. Often, patients who grew up in warmer climates or who did not use an SPF when outdoors have lines, brown spots, and other visible skin damage. Laser skin resurfacing treatments can restore youth and vitality to the skin by overall tightening existing laxity and reversing dullness.

The Skin has Become Loose and Wrinkles

Lasers utilized during non-surgical treatments are available in varying strengths. Patients who are exhibiting the first signs of aging may require a less powerful device. In lasers with medium to high intensity, the skin reformation includes an increase in collagen assembly. This essential, structural protein creates plumper skin.

Skin Pigmentation is Not Uniform

The powerful, targeted light of skin treatment lasers breaks up the pigmentation that detracts from the beauty of the skin. Hyperpigmentation can occur due to hormonal changes, and is a common side effect of pregnancy. Aging individuals may also show variations in their skin coloration.

Birthmarks and Broken Blood Vessels are Visual Distractors

Just as laser light can separate the melanin of hyperpigmentation, the beams can also effectively treat discolorations of birth marks, broken blood vessels, and even tattoos.
