How Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
During laser skin resurfacing, very short pulses of light energy are delivered to vaporize the upper layers of the skin. The energy emitted is controlled to precisely remove the skin with minimal damage. During the process, the skin’s collagen production is stimulated, leading to an enhanced structure and firmness of the skin.
