Minimizing Those Lines and Wrinkles

Options for Laser Skin Resurfacing

It used to be that if you really wanted to look younger, you had to undergo invasive cosmetic surgery. But these days, modern advances have made it possible for you to target unwanted fine lines and wrinkles through laser resurfacing technology. Laser treatment before and after can reveal dramatic results with less discomfort and less recovery time than traditional surgery.

Minimizing Those Lines and Wrinkles With UNC Health Care

What are your options?

Option #1: Laser skin resurfacing with V-beam Laser

Laser energy is used to correct pigmentation issues beneath the surface of the skin. This technique requires a series of treatments. During treatment, a cooling mist is applied which helps promote patient comfort. Following treatment, the skin will be temporarily red and swollen, which leads to collagen destruction and eventual regrowth. Results are often dramatic and can last for several years.

Option #2: Fractional Laser Resurfacing with Ultrapulse CO2

This laser approach uses lasers that emit tightly spaced columns of laser energy over broad areas of skin. Less damage occurs and healing time is minimized. The final results are comparable to more traditional approaches, but several treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results. Are you interested in laser skin resurfacing?
