Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

With the advances in laser technology over the years, lasers can now safely be used to resurface a patient’s skin. This will improve its texture and its overall appearance by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing is also used to treat scars like acne scars and remove unwanted hair and blemishes like liver spots and sun spots. It can also be used to treat areas of hyperpigmentation and spider veins.

Unlike other skin rejuvenation techniques like chemical peels and dermabrasion, lasers offer the dermatologist great control over how deeply the skin is penetrated. this allows the dermatologist to treat areas of the face where the skin is thin and delicate like under the eyes and around the lips.

New England Laser Lipo now welcomes patients to its Worcester Massachusetts office and its Shrewsbury Massachusetts office for laser skin rejuvenation. Its doctors use CO2 fractional lasers, where the beam of laser light is separated into tiny, discrete columns that are so accurate that they can destroy the wrinkle, blemish or scar but leave the tissues around it unaffected. This means much less discomfort for the patient and a faster recovery time.

Before the patient undergoes the procedure, the doctor might apply an anesthetic cream to the area to be treated to make sure he or she is comfortable. The patient might have to wait for about a half an hour for the anesthetic to work, which might be longer than the procedure itself! Afterwards, the patient might experience a bit of redness or swelling, but this will subside after a couple of days. To see results, most patients need about one to five sessions that are spaced about three weeks to a month and a half apart.

People in the Worcester or Shrewsbury area who are interested in laser skin rejuvenation should give New England Laser Lipo a call at 508.202.4540.
