Being in the sun is a very enjoyable experience. When most of us were children, we were so excited to be able to spend some time in the sun with our friends and family. Even as we grew older and became teenagers and young adults, some of the best experiences a person could have was going to the beach and laying out in the sun.
Many people long to have that perfect tan that is associated with the surfer lifestyle. As a result, many people in their late teens and early twenties have spent their life laying out in the sun. Now that these individuals have reached their mid-thirties or early forties, they are starting to see the negative effects that sun damage caused to their skin.
There are a lot of treatments that have been offered up as options for repairing sun damage. Unfortunately, the vast majority of them are only able to produce negligible results at best. Using lasers to address sun damage is one of the most promising therapies that is currently available.
Two or three decades ago, laser skin resurfacing was somewhere in the realm of science fiction and science reality. It offered up a lot of promises, but at the end of the day, many patients were left with results that were less than stellar.
Now, laser skin resurfacing for sun damage is an exact science. Patients are able to walk away with results that are unbelievable. They have little to no discomfort, and the chances of them having a negative reaction to the treatment has been reduced to the point where it is almost negligible.
In fact, laser skin resurfacing is so safe that in many cases, it can be used on individuals who have darker skin. This is something that was absolutely impossible just a few years ago. Laser skin resurfacing is a field of medicine that has benefited from many technological advances and is now pioneered by doctors and medical professionals who truly understand how human skin works and how using lasers on the skin can produce positive results.
Laser treatment works because unlike a light bulb that is designed to blend all the colors of the rainbow, laser skin resurfacing uses light that just has one color. As a result, this light can be effective at destroying pigment of a particular color while at the same time leaving the surrounding skin completely untouched.
