Resurfacing Laser Treatment: How It Helps Your Skin


Skin problems are common and can be caused by many factors. It is important to remember that not all skin problems are related to the sun or aging. Some skin problems can be treated through resurfacing laser Manhasset, a non-invasive procedure that improves skin’s appearance and reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging.

Here is how a resurfacing laser works and its importance.

How resurfacing laser works

Resurfacing Laser is a process that uses light to eliminate damaged skin and improve the texture of the skin. The laser beam penetrates the damaged epidermis (top layer) and stimulates collagen production within the dermis (middle layer). The result is younger, tighter, and smoother-looking skin.

The resurfacing laser treatment targets sun damage, wrinkles, acne scars, vascular problems, stretch marks, pigmentation, and uneven skin tone. The laser can also treat crow’s feet lines and fine lines on the forehead, neck, and between the eyebrows.

The most common skin problems treated with laser resurfacing include:

Acne scars

Acne occurs when the skin becomes inflamed and filled with oil. The acne can be painful, embarrassing and may leave permanent scars. A laser resurfacing treatment is the most effective way to treat acne. The laser treatment reduces inflammation, pain, and scarring by destroying the existing acne lesions.


Melasma is a type of hyperpigmentation that can appear on areas like the cheeks, nose, and chin due to sun exposure or hormonal changes during pregnancy or menopause. Laser resurfacing targets pigmented spots to diminish hyperpigmentation while improving texture and tone by rejuvenating underlying subcutaneous fat cells.

Crow’s feet (bags under the eyes)

Crow’s feet are the most common skin problem we treat with laser resurfacing. Crow’s feet occur when we lose collagen in the skin, causing it to sag. This can happen because of aging, sun damage, smoking, and weight loss. Laser resurfacing can help remove these fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

Sagging skin

Laser resurfacing can improve sagging skin by tightening loose or sagging skin or removing excess fat deposits and wrinkles in areas with excess fat, such as around the mouth, jowls, and neck.

Fine lines and wrinkles

Resurfacing laser is a treatment that uses powerful beams of light to stimulate collagen production, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. It is one of the most effective treatments for improving your skin’s overall appearance.


Rosacea is a chronic inflammatory condition that causes facial and neck redness, especially around the nose area. It affects about 5 percent of Americans over 18. However, it can be more severe in some people than others. Rosacea may also cause pimples or small bumps on the cheeks, chin, or forehead called papules.

Laser resurfacing may be an option for rosacea because it reduces redness by destroying excess blood vessels under the skin’s surface layers without damaging normal tissue underneath them.

Resurfacing laser rejuvenates the skin, especially in patients with age-related skin changes. It also treats wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, sun damage, and other skin problems. For help with skin problems, contact Brooks Dermatology.
