As we get older and start to notice changes in our skin, we are most likely to notice the wrinkles around our eyes first. This skin is the most delicate of all the body and will quickly show signs of ageing and fatigue. There are fewer collagen and elastin fibers around the eye making it more prone to sagging and wrinkling. On top of its delicate nature, the skin around our eyes can show unique conditions such as puffiness, dark circles, milia, wrinkles, and loss of firmness. This is why there is such a massive market for under eye creams and treatments. If you have been throwing your money at these products without real results, you may be considering Laser Skin Resurfacing. Let’s take a look at the procedure and common outcomes as well as risks and recovery times.

Acne affects both teens and adults, women and men. In fact, the American Academy of Dermatology notes that acne incidence in adults is on the rise, affecting as many as 15% of women into their 30s and 40s. As if acne itself isn’t frustrating enough, it can leave behind permanent scars. Fortunately, laser acne scar treatment can significantly improve both the texture and tone of your skin.
Laser treatment stands out as an effective option for a wide array of skin issues, from hyperpigmentation and wrinkles to scarring, birthmarks, and certain veins. While it is appropriate for most skin types, those of you with sensitive skin may be wondering if laser treatment is right for you.
If you’re starting out with sensitive skin or eczema, both of which compromise your skin’s barrier function, you may experience more sensitivity than that which is typical of a patient with non-sensitive skin.
The good news is that with the right laser, pre- and post-care, and provider, many people with sensitive skin can benefit from well-executed laser skin treatment.
The laser technology used in skin treatment is proven to effectively firm, tighten, and add radiance to your skin in a manner less invasive than traditional cosmetic surgery, making it a popular option for people with a variety of skin complaints. While the technology improves rapidly, it still feels new to many people, thus prompting questions about the risks of laser skin treatment. Highly trained providers can provide the most current laser treatments suitable to your skin to minimize any risk and maximize results.
Human skin is quite amazing. For instance, the average adult has approximately 21 square feet of skin and more than 11 miles of blood vessels! It is your body’s largest organ and it renews itself every 28 days by shedding dead cells to reveal fresh, new skin. It plays a vital role by detecting temperature, protecting the underlying structures of the body like muscles, bones, and internal organs. Perhaps most incredible is that changes in your skin can indicate health issues, protecting you on a whole different level.
