In brief: Many new lasers

There are a number of different lasers available to treat facial aging and to rejuvenate the skin.
One of the more effective yet safe lasers is called a fractional laser. The fractional laser provides excellent skin rejuvenation with minimal down time for healing and minimal risks. You should consult with a physician or surgeon who is experienced in laser treatments.

In brief: Types of laser

Intense pulse light lasers (ipl) use light to stimulate collagen & elastin, improve skin pigment and color, & can soften fine lines.
Skin resurfacing using fractionated lasers can be an erbium yag or a co2 laser. These lasers penetrate deeper and work better on scars, wrinkles and laxity. Which laser you will need depends on your skin color, skin problem, down time & finances.

In brief: Laser skin

In the past, lasers essentially removed the top layers of the skin in a process called ablative resurfacing.
It required regrowth of the entire layer and needed to be closely followed to optimize healing and minimize complications. New lasers actually deliver columns of energy leaving undisturbed areas of surface to heal more quickly (fractionated therapy). Other lasers are actually intense light.
