Laser Resurfacing is the Secret to Instantly Looking Younger

As a society, we have long been in search of a cure for the tell-tale signs of aging. Wrinkles, saggy skin, and uneven skin tone have never been in style. With so many options available for countering the signs of aging, it might be overwhelming knowing where to begin. 

Fortunately, Dr. Vera Carlson and her team at Cache Cosmetics & Laser offer the best in anti-aging treatments including the cutting-edge laser resurfacing system, Mitxto®.

Laser resurfacing basics

As you age, your skin naturally loses its elasticity, brightness, and smoothness. Laser resurfacing, specifically CO2 laser resurfacing systems like Mixto, use short pulses of light energy or continuous light beams to remove thin layers of your skin to correct flaws while avoiding damage. It does this by putting your body into healing mode so it produces its own collagen and new, healthy cells. 

Laser resurfacing is best for treating wrinkles and fine lines, scars from acne, age spots, sun damage, uneven or dull skin tone, and enlarged pores. 

The best part about a laser resurfacing treatment is that it’s relatively painless and requires very little downtime. You might feel some irritation similar to a sunburn following treatment, but for the most part side effects are minimal. You’ll likely see results within a few weeks, and those results can last several years with a good at-home skin care regimen. 

Here’s how laser resurfacing can give you a youthful glow your friends will envy:

Increased elasticity

During a laser resurfacing treatment, the lasers heat the lower layers of your skin. This, in turn, encourages your body to produce collagen, the protein responsible for providing structure to your skin. This is important because collagen is one of the first things to go as you age. Without collagen, you develop lines, wrinkles, and saggy skin. With your collagen replenished, your skin looks tighter, younger, and healthier. 

Fewer flaws

We all know that aging means developing wrinkles and fine lines. Laser resurfacing is great for getting rid of those flaws and smoothing the texture of your skin. The lasers remove the dead, wrinkled layer of skin to reveal the more youthful and smooth skin underneath. This erases unwanted lines and restores a soft texture to your skin. 

More even skin tone

Because laser resurfacing gets rid of the outermost layer of your skin, it can also help you get a more even skin tone. Whether it’s sun damage, rosacea, or simply dull skin, laser resurfacing is great if you want less discoloration. 

Laser resurfacing is beneficial not just for correcting superficial flaws but for enhancing your confidence at any age. When you’re ready to see how laser resurfacing can change your life, call our office or make an appointment online.
