A laser device is used to remove damaged or wrinkled skin, layer by layer; most commonly used to reduce fine lines around the mouth, eyes and facial scars. This procedure is also effective in treating areas of uneven pigmentation.
A few minutes to 1 hour. May require more than 1 session.
Return to work: about 2 weeks. More strenuous activities: 4 to 6 weeks. Complete fading of redness: 6 months or less. Return of pigmentation/ light sun exposure: 6 to 12 months.
Long-lasting, but does not stop new signs of aging.
The laser emits a beam of high intensive, light energy that vaporizes the upper layers of damaged skin. Laser skin resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Some patients with dark or olive skin, allergies, previous burns, a history of poor scar formation, radiation exposure, or episodes of cold sores around the mouth may not be able to undergo laser skin resurfacing
