The Benefits of Skin Resurfacing

Over time, our skin’s outer layers begin to show signs of wear and tear due to aging, injury, and environmental factors.

Laser skin resurfacing helps to reverse the signs of aging and stress, giving you a younger-looking complexion.

Laser resurfacing works by gently exfoliating the top layers of skin to encourage collagen production and stimulate new cell growth. It can also diminish fine lines, sun damage and skin blemishes.

Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Fine lines and wrinkles are a tell-tale sign of aging. These small lines appear when repeated facial movements cause the muscles around your eyes, mouth, and forehead to contract repeatedly.

These lines are usually visible first around the corners of your eye (crow’s feet), between your eyebrows, or out from nasolabial folds and laugh lines.

Timeless at Tiffanys Med Spa in Gilbert AZ, explains that fine lines appear when your skin’s foundation weakens due to age-related changes. This causes it to sag and lose natural elasticity over time.

Fortunately, proper skin care and advanced treatments can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels and dermabrasion work to rejuvenate your complexion by eliminating damaged layers of skin so that smoother, younger-looking skin can take their place.


Acne is a skin condition in which pores become clogged with oil, dead cells and bacteria. This can result in whiteheads, blackheads, pimples or cysts.

Pores are microscopic openings in the skin that contain hair follicles. These follicles are connected to sebaceous glands, which produce sebum to keep both skin and hair lubricated.

When sebaceous glands produce too much sebum, it can mix with dead skin cells to form a plug in the follicle. This plug may swell and lead to whiteheads, blackheads or pus-filled pimples.

Laser resurfacing can reduce acne scars and improve skin tone and texture by using brief pulses of light to peel away the outer layer of skin and heat up underlying tissue, stimulating new collagen fiber growth. Physicians utilize one of three types of laser resurfacing: ablative, non-ablative or fractionated.


Skin discoloration is an inevitable part of aging, but it can also be caused by certain health conditions or by exposure to UV rays, chemicals and medications.

Melanin in your body gives skin its color, shielding you from UV rays and other environmental aggressors. Unfortunately, melanin can sometimes be overproduced, leading to uneven skin tone and color.

This condition causes pink or red patches of discoloration on your cheeks, nose, chin or forehead. It may be due to either a genetic predisposition or an overactive immune system.

Though it can be harmless, treatment should be sought if you notice any changes in the size, shape or texture of your pimple.

There are various treatments available to reduce or lighten discolored patches. Your physician can assist in deciding the most suitable option for your condition.

Sun Damage

Although the sun’s rays may feel good on your skin, they can have an adverse effect on its health. Prolonged exposure to UVA and UVB rays can lead to premature aging and skin cancer as well as uneven pigmentation.

To protect against sun damage, the most effective method is to use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day. Consult a dermatologist for guidance on selecting the ideal formulation for your skin type.

Lasers and light-based treatments can rejuvenate damaged skin, improving discoloration, wrinkles and tone. Furthermore, they stimulate collagen production for younger-looking skin with fewer brown spots.

Lasers also target molecules in the skin that absorb both long and short IR light waves, like water, hemoglobin (the protein responsible for reddening your blood) and melanin. These can help reverse sun damage without harming or irritating the outer layer of your skin.
