Laser for Scar, Wrinkles & Ageing


Ablative laser resurfacing is a procedure that uses a wand-like laser instrument to remove the upper layers of skin. It is sometimes referred to as “laser peeling” since it removes old skin cells in order to reveal newer, more youthful cells. Since the technique uses a laser, an ASDS doctor has precise control over the depth of treatment, lessening complications to surrounding tissue. An antibiotic or antiviral medication is sometimes prescribed prior to the procedure.

Why choose laser resurfacing for aging skin

Ablative laser resurfacing works primarily by removing the top layer of skin. It also heats the layers underneath to promote collagen production, which stimulates skin in the treatment area to heal in a smoother, more even appearance. Laser resurfacing can be used to lessen the appearance of:

•  Wrinkles
•  Scarring
•  Blemishes
•  Irregular pigment
