The face can be one of the first areas to show signs of aging. Depending on your genetics, sun exposure and health, fine lines and wrinkles can begin to make an appearance as early as the mid-30s. Aging is unavoidable, but a youthful glow can be regained through a skin resurfacing treatment.

A skin resurfacing treatment can minimize fine lines and wrinkles as well as improve areas of sun damage or blotchy complexion. This special treatment is accomplished by using a chemical peel or a special type of laser that gently removes the damaged layer of skin. In addition, the process stimulates the natural production of collagen within the skin to leave the skin firm, smooth, and bright.

Laser skin resurfacing can help minimize and improve the following concerns:

  • Age spots
  • Brown spots
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars

Dr. Guyuron may use a carbon dioxide laser or erbium laser to gently remove the outer layer of skin. The laser will penetrate the surface and vaporize damaged skin cells, revealing younger, fresher skin below.

The treatment is an outpatient procedure, and you can return to normal activities right away; however, the skin can take 10 to 14 days to completely heal. There will be some temporary redness and possible peeling during that time. Many patients see results after just a single treatment, but some may require additional treatments based on the results desired.

Skin resurfacing, although less invasive as plastic surgery, is a very effective tool in facial rejuvenation that can change the complexion to reveal a fresher, younger and beautiful face.

Dr. Guyuron, a plastic surgeon in Cleveland (Lyndhurst), along with the aestheticians and nurses at the Zeeba Clinic, are highly skilled and trained in the process of skin resurfacing. Dr. Guyuron will begin with a consultation and evaluation to determine the condition of your skin and the best plan of treatment.
