Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is also known as a laser peel, laser vaporization, and lasabrasion. This procedure reduces facial wrinkles, scars, and blemishes. Because of new technology, Dr. Oliver P. Simmons has a new level of control in laser resurfacing. This permits extreme precision, especially in delicate areas.
Our cosmetic surgeon can provide laser resurfacing in Lexington, South Carolina, to improve minor facial flaws like:
- Fine lines or wrinkles around or under your eyes, forehead, or mouth
- Acne or chickenpox scars
- Skin that is non-responsive after a facelift
- Skin that is sun-damaged or aged
- Liver spots
- Yellowish or grayish skin tones
- Birthmarks such as linear epidermal nevi
- Enlarged oil glands on the nose
Laser skin resurfacing works by using beams of light. Our cosmetic surgeon will use the laser to send short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin one layer at a time. The laser beam will remove your outer layer of skin and heat the underlying skin. This will stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. When the treated area heals, the new skin will be smoother and firmer.
