What is Skin Resurfacing?
If you’ve ever had a facial, you probably know the dramatic transformation they have on your skin. The main reason your skin looks so great is exfoliation. By removing your outer layers of skin cells, exfoliation reveals the healthier cells below. Skin Resurfacing works in much the same way. By removing several layers of damaged skin, newer, undamaged skin cells are revealed. Skin resurfacing has various ranges and uses, but they are all leave you with firm, smooth skin. Dr.s Irvin and Gary Wiesman offer innovative skin resurfacing technologies including micro peels, erbium laser resurfacing and RF laser resurfacing.
A micro peel is used to give your skin a little extra glow. Using a chemical wash, the outer layers of your skin are removed. A peel removes more skin than a facial, but is not recommended for removal of wrinkles, scars or age spots. Micro peels are affective in smoothing a complexion, and leaving skin feeling firmer.
Erbium lasers are the more traditional tool of laser resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing is the best way to restore wrinkled, scarred skin to its natural beauty. Erbium laser treatments are very affective, but can take a long time to heal. Most patients report having fully restored skin between ten and twenty days after treatment. The results are significant and long lasting, but the amount of healing time should be considered carefully before making the decision to have erbium laser removal.
Radio Frequency Lasers or RF lasers are a cutting edge technology offered by the Wiesman Institute. They work similarly to traditional erbium laser resurfacing tools, but patients report experiencing significantly less discomfort during treatment. Additionally, the healing time following FR laser resurfacing is much shorter, and skin is not as irritated during recovery.
