Laser Skin Treatments in Reading
Reveal soft, smooth, & stunning skin
Over time, the effects of aging, exposure to the sun, lifestyle habits, and genetics can all have an impact on your skin. Visible signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles, sun and age spots, uneven skin tone and texture, and hyperpigmentation are but a few common skin concerns—and it’s likely that we can help you with one of our state-of-the-art laser skin resurfacing systems.
Laser skin resurfacing, sometimes called “laser peel,” involves using a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to remove areas of damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer. The procedure is most commonly used to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, it is also effective in treating facial scars or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Often, the procedure is done to complement another cosmetic facial procedure, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.
Most laser resurfacing treatments work in essentially the same way. First, the outer layers of damaged skin are stripped away. Then, as new cells form during the healing process, a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface appears. The biggest difference comes in how intensely and in what pattern the lasers emit beams to treat the skin. There is no one “best” laser—just a laser treatment that is better for you. Our licensed aestheticians will recommend the right laser technology for you based on your skin type and condition as well as your desired results.
