Laser skin resurfacing is a technique that removes the outer layers of skin on your face and encourages new skin to grow. It's usually done for cosmetic reasons.

Laser skin resurfacing involves using an intense beam of light radiation to deliver energy to your skin. This energy can affect your skin in different ways depending on the type of laser used

Laser facial resurfacing can:

  • remove superficial wrinkles
  • tighten your skin
  • even out your pigmentation (colouring)
  • smooth rough skin
  • improve the look of scars, including shallow acne scars
  • treat certain early skin cancers
  • Your surgeon can direct the laser on problem areas, for example, wrinkles around your eyes, mouth or nose or treat the whole surface of your face
 

There are two main types of laser facial resurfacing - ablative and non-ablative

Ablative laser resurfacing destroys the surface layer of your skin (epidermis) in a controlled way, which exposes the deeper layer - the dermis. The laser power is used to heat the dermis, which stimulates the growth of new fibres of collagen (a long fibrous protein that supports tissues and cells). As the wound heals, you will form new skin that is softer and less wrinkled or scarred than before.

Non-ablative laser resurfacing doesn't destroy the epidermis but targets the dermis. It heats it up to encourage new skin to grow, working beneath your epidermis to stimulate collagen growth.
