The sun never stops shining in Florida entirely, but the winter season is at least easier on the skin. During these few months that your skin isn’t forced to endure the sun at its full strength, it is the perfect time to opt for laser skin resurfacing. A laser procedure in the winter months will reinvigorate your appearance, eliminate signs of sun damage from the summer, and help you welcome the New Year with more youthful, vibrant skin.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
This innovative treatment uses a CO2 laser to vaporize the upper layers of the skin. The depth of the resurfacing increases with each pass of the laser, and the total depth treated can be customized based upon your personal skincare needs.
If you are only targeting fine lines and color improvement, then your laser resurfacing treatment will likely be mild and shallow. However, coarse wrinkles and advanced sun damage require a more aggressive treatment that might be split into multiple stages to minimize the side effects associated with aggressive resurfacing.
What Can a Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment Do For You?
Laser skin resurfacing is a serious procedure that delivers undeniable results. Mild resurfacing can be completed in the office, while deeper peels take place in the operating room. Depending on the size of your treated area, your treatment could last between 15 and 45 minutes.
Since laser skin resurfacing peels away the top layers of skin on your face, a medical grade silicone mask and topical anti-inflammatory gels are applied immediately after treatment. This protects your face as new skin cells form to give your complexion a much younger and healthier appearance. Over the span of 4 to 8 days, your fresh skin takes the place of old, dull, and damaged skin.
It’s Not Just For the Face!
Laser skin resurfacing can do more than rejuvenate your face. It can even be used on other parts of the body such as the neck, chest, arms, and hands. Any place that sun damage has diminished your skin’s natural vibrancy, laser resurfacing can reverse signs of damage and restore skin health. Winter is an excellent time to generate this type of deep healing.
