What causes skin laxity?

As we age, our skin loses natural elasticity and firmness. This is due to normal aging and environmental factors such as sun damage. Smoking, a poor or nutrient-deficient diet, and other lifestyle factors only accelerate this process, leading to problems such as:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging skin
  • General loss of volume in the face
  • Hollow or sunken cheeks

Fortunately, laser skin resurfacing can help address these problems and more.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a technique in which lasers are used to remove the outer layers of damaged skin. This stimulates collagen production and promotes healing, resulting in tighter, smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and lines. Laser treatments also improve skin tone and texture for a healthier-looking complexion. Amour Medical Aesthetics offers laser peels through the Icon laser, so people of many skin types can benefit from the procedure.

What happens during a laser peel?

Dr. Alonso, or a trained member of our team, begins laser skin resurfacing by cleansing the treatment area. We then use the laser to carefully heat and remove layers of skin in a precise manner while protecting the surrounding tissue. Most patients report minimal discomfort and return to normal activities the following day.

Laser peel results can be seen over several weeks as new collagen strengthens and tightens the skin from within. We may recommend follow-up sessions to maintain your smoother-looking complexion in Chico, CA.

Your recovery from laser treatment

Recovery from laser skin resurfacing usually depends on the depth of the treatment involved. Most patients experience redness and swelling that can be managed with cool compresses or other products recommended by Dr. Alonso. Excessive sun exposure should be limited for several weeks to protect the newly treated area as it heals. Some peeling or flaking may occur, but this is temporary and a standard part of the healing process.

What results should I expect from laser skin resurfacing?

Laser peels can provide a firmer, smoother complexion overall. Some people also notice an improvement in sun damage, discoloration, and other issues that make them feel less than confident. For the best possible results, Dr. Alonso may recommend combining laser treatments with additional procedures so you can look your best. No matter your problem areas, Amour Medical Aesthetics can offer a solution.
