Laser Resurfacing

Laser is used to resurface the facial problems such as wrinkles, blotches, age spots, fine lines and scar marks. Procedures such as dermabrasion are also used for this purpose. Laser resurfacing is a bloodless process and doctors can control the resurfacing more accurately with it. The risk of infection is also low with this procedure. With latest lasers available, this process is revolutionizing the procedure of facial resurfacing. Sometimes, this procedure is combined with other procedures such as face lifting, etc. To know more about how laser resurfacing works, let us first find out about lasers.

What Are Lasers?
A laser is focused high energy light. The scientific name of LASER is 'Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation'. Ordinary light emits photons in all the directions and consists of many wavelengths. Unlike that, laser emits photons in a single direction and consists of a single wavelength. Laser therefore has very high energy and can be focused on any object or in any direction. In laser skin resurfacing, the laser burns away the unwanted skin tissues bloodlessly and gives a new shape with precise control.
