Reasons for having Laser Skin Resurfacing

Clinics offering Laser Skin Resurfacing London & UK »

There are many reasons why people wish to undergo laser skin resurfacing.  As you age, your skin starts to loose elasticity and can change in appearance.  Many people find that this can make them look older than they are, and try to reverse this ageing process.

Laser skin resurfacing is very good at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the impact of scars, evening out pigmentation variations and to make skin appear more youthful and healthy.  Some examples of skin problems that laser skin resurfacing can help with include:

  • Remove or reduce wrinkles and fine lines
  • Amending pigmentation damage or abnormalities
  • Reducing the appearance of scars
  • To help remedy sun damage to the skin
  • Making your skin feel younger and fresher

In order to ensure that your skin is suitable for laser skin resurfacing it is important that you have a consultation with your practitioner.  Some skin tones or skin conditions might deem laser skin resurfacing inappropriate, and an alternative treatment might suit you better or give you better results.  There are some instances when laser skin resurfacing isn’t possible, including if you are taking acne medication, are pregnant or if you suffer from keloid scarring.
