What Is Laser Skin Rejuvenation & Resurfacing?

Laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing is an innovative treatment offered at Wound and Burn Centers of America to address various skin concerns. Using advanced medical-grade lasers, this procedure stimulates collagen production and promotes the regeneration of skin cells. Ablative lasers remove the outer layer of skin, while non-ablative lasers heat the dermis to trigger collagen production. Whether you’re dealing with scars, wrinkles, sun damage, or other skin imperfections, laser skin rejuvenation can restore your skin’s natural beauty and radiance.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation & Resurfacing Treats The Following Conditions:

  • Scars (laser scar treatment)
  • Skin laxity (laser skin tightening)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Melasma (brown patches due to pregnancy-related hormonal changes or sun exposure)
  • Rosacea (a condition that causes redness on your face)
  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Puffy eyes
  • Stretch marks
  • Cellulite

How Does Laser Skin Rejuvenation Work?

Wound and Burn Centers of America utilizes innovative, medical-grade lasers to rejuvenate your skin cells by promoting the body’s regenerative potential and boosting collagen production. The result is restoring your skin’s natural beauty. We utilize laser’s high-energy light in two unique fashions — ablative and non-ablative for laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing in Los Angeles.

Ablative Laser Skin Rejuvenation

The ablative laser targets the outer layer of skin, known as the epidermis, removing it and heating the underlying skin called the dermis. This process stimulates the growth of collagen, a vital protein responsible for improving skin firmness and texture. As the treated area heals and regrows the epidermis, the skin appears smoother and tighter. Ablative therapy options include the use of CO2 lasers and Erbium lasers.

Non-Ablative Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Non-ablative laser therapy takes a less aggressive approach by focusing on heating the dermis to trigger collagen production without removing the epidermis. This method results in a shorter recovery time than ablative lasers, making it a preferred option for some patients. However, it’s important to note that the results of non-ablative laser therapy may be less noticeable compared to ablative treatments.

Who Is A Candidate For Laser Skin Rejuvenation?

Laser skin rejuvenation suits individuals seeking to address various skin conditions and imperfections. Whether you’re dealing with scars, sun damage, wrinkles, age spots, or other concerns, laser skin rejuvenation can be an effective solution. At Wound and Burn Centers of America, our skilled specialists can assess your specific needs and determine if laser skin rejuvenation in Los Angeles is the right choice for you.

The Laser Skin Rejuvenation Technologies We Use:

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

IPL, or Intense Pulsed Light, is a non-ablative laser that employs multiple wavelengths to address unwanted skin pigment conditions or vein changes. The light waves penetrate through the top layer of skin (epidermis) and target specific lesions, whether they are pigmented or vascular in nature. The light energy converts into thermal energy and destroys the unwanted pigment, leading to clearer, more vibrant, and youthful-looking skin without downtime.

Fractionated Lasers

Fractionated lasers are advanced laser devices that work by creating tiny, vertical columns of vaporization within the skin. The columns target specific areas of the epidermis and dermis, breaking up collagen fibers and stimulating the skin’s remodeling process. By selectively treating fractions of the skin, fractionated lasers promote the regeneration of new, healthier skin cells while leaving surrounding tissue unaffected. This technology can deliver both ablative and non-ablative lasers, providing versatile treatment for various skin concerns as part of laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing in Los Angeles.

Pulsed-Dye Laser (PDL or V-Beam)

The Pulsed-Dye Laser (PDL), also known as V-Beam, emits bursts of pulsed laser energy that pass through the layers of the skin, specifically targeting oxyhemoglobin in blood vessels. The laser energy is absorbed by the blood vessels, causing them to coagulate and be gradually reabsorbed by the body. PDL primarily treats vascular conditions, such as facial redness, rosacea, and vascular birthmarks, to restore a more even and youthful complexion.

Potential Side Effects Of Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is generally safe and well-tolerated if performed by experienced hands; however, it is important to be aware of potential side effects. Most side effects are mild and temporary, including redness, swelling, and minor discomfort. In some cases, changes in skin color may occur, particularly in individuals with darker skin tones. Although rare, there is a risk of infection and scarring, particularly with ablative lasers. Please consult with our skilled specialists to minimize the chances of adverse effects and ensure a safe outcome for your laser skin resurfacing in Los Angeles.
