Serving Knoxville, Sevierville, Knox County & Nearby Areas of Tennessee
Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that can help your skin look and feel years younger. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Dean Kleto offers CO2 laser skin resurfacing to his Knox County patients to provide a smoother, more youthful appearance.
While laser resurfacing can make you look years younger, it should not be seen as an alternative to a facelift. A facelift will provide much more dramatic results, but patients seeking a less invasive way to improve their appearance may benefit greatly from this simpler procedure.
The Benefits of Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin treatments have been proven effective at reducing the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles throughout the face. In addition, skin resurfacing can remove imperfections including:
- Sun damage
- Precancerous growths
- Skin lesions
By carefully removing skin damage layer by layer, Dr. Kleto can use laser resurfacing to correct these and other cosmetic blemishes and provide you with a clear, smooth, and appealing aesthetic.
How Laser Resurfacing Works
CO2 laser skin resurfacing works by using light beams that are pulsed or scattered at a very high rate. Because lasers are so precise, Dr. Kleto can target specific areas of your face without impacting surrounding tissue. The pulsing or scattered light minimizes heat damage to your skin while still effectively removing damaged layers. This, in turn, prompts your body’s natural healing response, causing it to produce smooth, youthful looking skin.
To be effective, skin resurfacing requires new skin be produced by your body. This process can take up to two weeks, during which time you may experience symptoms similar to a mild sunburn. This discomfort can be dealt with by using skin care creams, and avoiding direct sunlight. This temporary discomfort will fade, revealing a naturally youthful appearance that can last for several years.
