Laser Skin Resurfacing in Tucson, AZ
Heal Wrinkles, Blotches, and Scars with a Non-Ablative Treatment
Reducing scars, acne, wrinkles, and lines while stimulating collagen.
There is no denying that skin takes a significant amount of abuse over the course of a lifetime, from sun exposure to aging to a number of unforeseen circumstances. Laser skin resurfacing offers Tucson women and men an opportunity to minimize the damaging effects of that abuse, including scars, acne, wrinkles, and lines in one quick, non-ablative treatment.
Laser skin resurfacing, also known as fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, involves the use of a laser to deliver short pulses of energy to target specific layers of skin. This minor damage stimulates the production of a naturally occurring protein called collagen, resulting in more youthful skin. Fractional and CO2 lasers produce the most effective results, eliminating more serious scars and marks than ablative laser techniques. A laser skin resurfacing procedure can take anywhere from half an hour to two hours depending on the size of the treatment area, and patients are typically sedated or given a topical and/or local anesthetic. Ironwood Dermatology also uses lasers for hair removal and treatment of acne, rosacea, and psoriasis.
