Dr. Samuel Lin of Boston Plastic Surgery in Boston, MA is a plastic surgeon who can help patients improve their self-confidence in the way they look with facial and body procedures. However, this isn’t where his services end. He also provides a variety of nonsurgical treatments for the skin and body for patients to consider as well, ensuring more conservative options are available for patients who want to avoid more invasive procedures. One of the treatments he provides that doesn’t require surgical intervention is laser skin resurfacing.
What is laser skin resurfacing and how does it work?
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser rejuvenation, is a way of revitalizing the skin’s appearance on the face. It can improve the skin’s texture and tone, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and help in treating sun damaged or highly-pigmented skin concerns. With the use of laser light and energy, which is used safely and effectively in a wide range of medical fields, patients can exfoliate the skin and stimulate their skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. In doing so, it rejuvenates the facial appearance and enhances the overall look for youthful, glowing skin.
What can I expect from laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment that does require some downtime for patients who are looking to achieve the best results. Laser light energy penetrates deep into the skin, administered by a handheld device used by our trained professionals. Patients may experience a warming and snapping sensation on the skin as the laser light works its way into the skin. After the procedure, the skin may be red and sensitive, but with time, it clears and improves for long-term results.
