What is Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes and improve sagging skin. Newer technologies that utilize both non-ablative lasers and lights give your medical practitioner a greater level of control in resurfacing, permitting extreme precision, especially in delicate areas. There is no longer a need to completely remove the top layer of your skin to improve it! The non-ablative laser stimulates collagen growth, which helps to tighten underlying skin, improve texture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and scars. The newest types of equipment have minimal to no downtime. Different treatment modalities are available to treat the different aspects of skin damage and the different parts of the body. They specific type of treatment that will best address your concerns are determined after a complementary consultation with our experienced medical practitioners.
In the hands of a highly trained, knowledgeable professional, skin resurfacing is a save way to improve your skin’s appearance. In the hands of a poorly trained individual, lights and lasers can be ineffective or even dangerous. Boise Image Enhancement Centre providers have over 3 decades of experience in skin rejuvenation.
