Laser Skin Resurfacing can reverse decades of aging from the face with a single procedure. Though chemical peels are reliable for treating sun damage and fine wrinkles, laser resurfacing can address deeper wrinkles, pigmentation problems, acne scarring, mild volume loss and other complexion issues. Ideal patients are those without severe skin sagging (laxity), but who have wrinkles and sun or age spots, or moderate to severe acne scarring. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on patients with skin laxity, at the same time as a facelift or eyelid surgery when so desired.
Laser Skin Resurfacing remains the gold standard for rejuvenation of aged facial skin. This means that it is the most reliable and time-tested technique for facial skin resurfacing. It does require a commitment of both time and energy but can accomplish results that no other treatment can accomplish – no matter what you read about pie-in-the-sky “light” laser therapies that promise exceptional results with little-to-no downtime.
