Clear Away Summer Damage Through Laser Skin Resurfacing

Other than getting sunburned, children and teenagers rarely understand the consequences of what the sun can do to their skin. However, this damage can become more apparent as sunspots, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles start showing up with time.

Exposure to ultraviolet rays can really do a number on your skin. In fact, 80% of all skin aging is caused by too much exposure to ultraviolet light. Fortunately, there are treatments that can help clear away summer sun damage so you can regain more youthful looking skin. At Tayani Institute, we help our clients roll back the years with laser skin resurfacing. In this blog, we give you the scoop on how laser skin resurfacing works. 

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is an in-office treatment that can transform dull, sun-damaged skin into radiant, more youthful skin. Specifically, laser skin resurfacing removes damaged skin and triggers your body’s natural healing ability to create new, firmer skin.

What to expect during treatment

At Tayani Institute, we perform laser skin resurfacing using the Active FXⓇ laser. After numbing the treatment area, your doctor glides the treatment wand over your skin. The wand emits short, highly focused pulsating beams of light.

These beams of light then do two things. First, they tigger a skin peel in the treated areas. Second, they induce your body to produce more collagen and elastin. This second part is important, because your body produces less collagen and elastin as you age. Collagen and elastin help keep skin smooth and firm, and this treatment helps your body produce more of it.

What to expect after treatment

After laser resurfacing, your face may swell some in the treatment areas and your skin will be redder than normal. Furthermore, you may experience some skin flaking or itching as the damaged skin sloths off. 

The redness and swelling, however, will fade away over the next few weeks. As your skin heals, you’ll need to treat it tenderly and avoid scrubbing it or using harsh cleansing lotions. Over the course of a year after your treatment, you’ll continue to see skin improvements.  

Treat a variety of skin conditions simultaneously

One of the benefits of laser skin resurfacing is that you can treat a number of skin conditions at the same time. Skin issues you can treat include the following:

Although there’s no such thing as the fountain of youth, laser skin resurfacing may be the next best thing. With laser skin resurfacing, you get to keep all the memories of your fun in the sun, but none of the telltale signs on your face.
