Skin Issues That Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Help

While topical creams and serums can do wonders for your skin, certain skin issues may require additional treatments — such as wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. Dr. Cecil Yeung and our team at The Yeung Institute in Houston, Texas, offer many different facial treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, to help you reach your aesthetic goals.

Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation procedure that uses laser energy to improve your skin's appearance. Here, our team highlights what laser skin resurfacing is and how it can help your skin.

What is laser skin resurfacing?

There are a few different types of laser skin resurfacing, but the underlying principle remains the same: Laser energy directed at your skin helps boost collagen and improve tone.

At The Yeung Institute, we perform fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing. This type of laser resurfacing uses high-energy broadband lightwaves directed toward the top layer of your skin. 

When we direct warm pulses of energy toward your treatment area and the carbon dioxide (CO2) energy waves reach the top layer of your skin, the light waves remove (vaporize) just the top layer. This process is safe and effective, and we keep you comfortable with local anesthetic as well as topical cooling treatments.

Skin issues that laser skin resurfacing can address

When the CO2 energy vaporizes your top layer of skin, it triggers your body to boost collagen production. This is part of your body’s natural healing process.

Increased collagen production can help:

During your laser resurfacing consultation, we discuss your aesthetic goals and what specific skin issues you’d like to address, we review your medical history, and we answer any questions you have. 

What to expect after your laser skin resurfacing appointment

While laser skin resurfacing is designed to improve many different skin conditions, you don’t see results overnight. That’s because your skin needs time to heal, and it can take time for your body to start producing collagen. 

Our team prepares you with specific preparation and after-care instructions so you know exactly how to take care of your skin. After your session, it’s important to follow all instructions. 

Redness and peeling is common and normal. However, as your collagen starts to ramp up, you’ll notice smoother, firmer skin, a more even tone, and a more youthful complexion.
