ASPS Reports 9% Jump in Laser Skin Resurfacing
Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons releases a report on current trends in the world of cosmetic medicine. While several minimally-invasive procedures saw significant growth, laser rejuvenation came in near the top of the list. In one year, laser skin resurfacing saw a dramatic uptick of 9%, with over half a million procedures performed in 2012. So, what do we believe to be driving this trend? In the end, it seems to come down to the treatments, safety, simplicity and efficacy.
Laser skin resurfacing — sometimes referred to as “lasabration” or a “laser peel” — uses special light energy to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin and promote a more youthful appearance. As one of today’s most versatile cosmetic treatments, laser skin rejuvenation can combat the appearance of several common cosmetic concerns. These include facial lines and wrinkles, skin discoloration, scars and much more. A procedure expected to grow more popular in the coming months, read on to learn about a few of the laser treatments our practice offers.
