Most Southern Californians spend more time than they should in the sun. Too often in our younger years, we spent too much time unprotected from the sun at the beach or on sports teams. Sunscreen, sun-protective clothing and broad-rimmed hats were not at the forefront of our minds. Sadly, our bodies never forget a single ray we have had and with time, these rays build up in our skin.
As time progresses, our skin starts to show some of the effects that spending so much time unprotected in the sun can bring. Sun spots, dark patches, wrinkles and an overall loss of elasticity in the skin start to appear. Thanks to modern technology, these defects are not permanent.
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular, well-respected procedure that has been shown to reduce the effects of aging and sun exposure. Time, testing and experience has proven that laser skin resurfacing is safe. The testimonies of thousands of individuals show that it is an effective and convenient way to address the aging process and excess sun exposure.
One of the reasons why people prefer laser skin resurfacing as compared to more invasive cosmetic procedures is because it is less invasive and downtime is minimal as compared to surgery. In addition, there is no better way to clear discoloration, tighten fine lines and wrinkles, remodel scar tissue and give one’s skin the opportunity to have baby-fresh new skin cells again. A lot of people refer to this procedure as “laser skin rejuvenation.” This is because once the procedure has been completed and sun-damaged skin cells have been removed, one’s face looks youthful and revitalized while still looking very natural. In addition, the cost is far less than more invasive surgical procedures that frequently cause patients to look “done.”
