Laser Skin Renewal – Skin Care near Newcastle and the Hunter Valley
Although a certain amount of exposure to sunlight is essential to good skin health, overexposure is one of the most common causes of skin damage, particularly among the sun-loving Australian population. Over time, the facial skin usually experiences the most sun damage; wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections also develop as the skin ages. Fortunately, people with damaged, aging skin can avail themselves of one of the most exciting cosmetic treatments currently available in laser skin renewal. This skin care treatment is available to Newcastle, Hunter Valley, and other Central and Mid North Coast residents at the practice of Dr. John Newton in Warners Bay. Laser skin renewal leaves the facial skin looking smoother, healthier, and more youthful. Patients often choose to combine laser skin care with eyelid surgery or another facial procedure for more thorough treatment, while others choose it as an alternative to more invasive surgical techniques.
The Laser Skin Renewal Procedure
When performing laser skin renewal at his Newcastle practice, Dr. Newton treats the facial skin with a high-precision handheld CO2 laser. The laser energy is applied to the skin with great care in brief pulses. The laser removes damaged outer layers of skin to expose the fresher, smoother layers of skin beneath. In addition, laser energy stimulates the production of new collagen fibers, which are responsible for firmness and elasticity.
Benefits of Laser Skin Renewal
Laser skin renewal is an extremely effective laser skin care treatment. Newcastle and Hunter Valley-area patients at Dr. Newton’s practice enjoy smoother, healthier-looking skin. A full course of laser skin renewal treatments can diminish the appearance of facial scarring from acne, correct sun spots and other discoloration, and smooth away wrinkles caused by tired, loose skin that lacks sufficient collagen fibers.
Laser skin renewal is a safe skin care procedure. Serious side effects are rare, though patients do tend to experience some discomfort and redness after treatment is complete. Full recovery typically takes about two weeks.
