Are Laser Resurfacing Results Permanent?

February 14, 2018

Just like any other cosmetic procedure, the clock gets shifted back but does not turn off. Aging is the inevitable but most prefer to age as gracefully as possible. Although there is no permanent aesthetic treatment of the face, laser resurfacing can achieve noticeable results.

Laser resurfacing helps to remove damaged skin on the surface and goes deep into the dermis to stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin. This can help reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone and texture. It is vital that patients are out of the sun prior to the treatment as well as post treatment to lessen the chance of burning.

Laser resurfacing results are considered long lasting and the longevity of the results can be extended with good upkeep. Sun exposure, genetics, geographic location, and skin care regimen will play a role in how long results last after the treatment. Skin is the largest organ of the body and it needs constant and consistent maintenance.
