Your skin is constantly under attack from external sources like the sun’s rays and environmental pollution to internal factors like the food you eat and drink, certain lifestyle choices, and your genes and family history.
Even a healthy lifestyle and a careful skincare routine are not enough to protect your skin from the environment and the signs of aging.
At Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic, our medical director, Nasrin Ejtemaee, MD, and our master estheticians offer laser skin resurfacing and other aesthetic and medical skincare services at our clinic in Ashburn, Virginia.
We treat a number of common skin problems with the Lumenis® M22™ ResurFX™ laser resurfacing system. The system is noninvasive and uses light energy to target and penetrate damaged skin for a better complexion and overall improvement to your skin’s texture and tone.
Some of the most common skin problems and complaints, especially as people age, may show signs of improvement after laser resurfacing treatments:
Although it’s most commonly associated with the teenage years, acne is a common problem for many adults as well. Adult acne presents its own set of challenges. If you’re dealing with adult acne for the first time or from a recurrence, we help you find the best treatment for your needs.
Even when it clears up, acne can often leave behind scars and marks on your face. Laser skin resurfacing can help to minimize acne scarring and other types of scars to give your skin a smoother, more even texture.
From sunspots to premature aging, too much sun exposure can wreak havoc on your skin and make you look older than you actually are.
When it comes to sun damage, prevention is always the best medicine, but many people have already accumulated years of sun damage by the time they reach adulthood and middle age.
When you can’t turn back the clock to undo years of sun damage, laser skin resurfacing can be the next best thing.
Fine lines and wrinkles
Fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and mouth are usually the first signs of aging.
Laser resurfacing can target specific areas to make fine lines and wrinkles less pronounced. It may also help to stimulate collagen production, which naturally slows down as you age and causes skin to sag and lose elasticity.
Hyperpigmentation, also known as melasma, can cause brown spots and discolorations on your face and body. Laser resurfacing can treat hyperpigmentation and spots.
Rosacea causes visible red blood cells on the skin and swollen red bumps that resemble acne. While there’s no cure for rosacea, laser resurfacing treatments may provide relief and improve the skin’s texture and appearance.
Spider veins are more common on the legs, but they also appear on the face and other areas of the body. Laser resurfacing can eliminate spider veins, and this treatment is not limited to the skin on your face.
Like sun and age spots, laser resurfacing can help to manage the appearance of unwanted freckles.
