Who won’t love to look their best? No matter how hard we try to look flawless, we will always be targeted by one or other kind of skin impurities including blemishes, age lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and a lot more. However, thanks to the variety of beauty technologies today, getting the right appearance is not a problem anymore!

One of the best skin rejuvenation methods in the market is Laser skin resurfacing. It is also termed as laser peel or lasabrasion. Apart from treating the issues related to aging like fine lines and wrinkles, it also works the best for reducing appearance of other such skin irregularities that includes sun spots, acne scars, etc.

Some basics about laser resurfacing you should know

Basically, laser resurfacing uses the precise laser beam that targets your damaged skin cells. The lasers used in this process are ablative or non-ablative that depends on intensity of the treatment.


Ablative lasers are more invasive and make use of carbon dioxide in order to eliminate thin layers of skin. Continuous light beams scan surface for the damaged skin areas to peel them off. As it starts healing, your skin reconstructs itself. You can expect some post procedure swelling. It may take about 2 weeks for proper restoration of your skin.


When it comes to erbium lasers, they don’t remove any type of skin. It is normally more effective for treating impurities on the skin surface. They mainly focus on tightening skin and for stimulation of collagen production. It is less risky as well as less invasive. It also has very short recovery time.
