These days, more and more people are getting laser skin treatments to achieve smoother, younger-looking skin. This latest trend is all the rage for all the right reasons: it can correct fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, textural irregularities, and more with natural-looking results and no surgery. Here are some of the reasons why laser skin resurfacing is so popular and how it could help you achieve the perfect complexion.

About Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser energy to heat the outer layers of skin. This process induces collagen production, which repairs the damaged skin and encourages new cell growth. As the body replaces the old, damaged skin with healthy tissue, the skin appears more even and youthful, and the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, and other imperfections are reduced.

Why It’s Trending

The latest official plastic surgery statistics report that laser skin resurfacing is now one of the top three cosmetic minimally invasive treatments in the country (behind BOTOX COSMETIC and dermal fillers). Survey data from 2021 shows more than a 10 percent increase in laser treatments from the previous calendar year. It’s clear from the data that laser skin resurfacing is becoming increasingly more popular.

There are several reasons for this. For one, the procedure is minimally invasive, which means it is much easier to tolerate and has an easier recovery than surgical cosmetic procedures. Additionally, even though the treatment is less invasive, the results are long-lasting. While other minimally invasive cosmetic treatments may require touch-ups every few months, laser treatments may only need maintenance treatments every few years to help the results last longer. Another reason this treatment is being sought is the fact that it improves your natural skin tone and texture. As preferences about how to wear makeup evolve over time, having naturally healthy and beautiful skin is increasingly a priority. Lastly, laser skin treatments are trending because they have impressive results—they can improve skin texture, reduce age spots and wrinkles, even out pigmented areas, and more.

Who Can Benefit?

Improvements in technology have made it possible for anyone looking to improve their skin appearance and quality (including those with darker skin tones) to get laser skin resurfacing treatments. Individuals with acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, large pores, discoloration due to sun exposure, and age spots may be good candidates for these treatments.
