Will laser skin resurfacing remove sun damage?

Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most popular options for removing the signs of sun damage. It is a minimally invasive procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to restore the health of the skin, and reduce skin irregularities.

How laser skin resurfacing helps sun damage
During the procedure the laser energy targets the damaged outer layers of the skin, and the heat from the laser also stimulates collagen production in the dermal layer. As the sun-damaged skinpeels away, smoother, more youthful skin is revealed. In addition, the increased collagen helps to strengthen the skin, and assist with skin repair and renewal.
