Laser Resurfacing also known as Laser Peel uses a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser to treat fine lines, wrinkles, scars, areas of uneven pigmentation, and other damaged skin. A laser beam is used to strip away layers of damaged skin. As the healing process occurs, new cells form, and the result is fresher, tighter, looking skin. Your surgeon may recommend a skin care regimen before and after the laser procedure in order to enhance the results.
Good candidates for laser resurfacing are men and women with fair and healthy skin. Patients who have been prescribed Accutane must be off the medication for a certain period of time before they undergo the procedure.
During your initial consultation, you will meet the plastic surgeon and staff. Your physical and emotional health will be evaluated. By examining your skin quality, pigmentation, and degree of damaged skin, your surgeon will determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. You will be advised of the risks and limitations associated with the surgery. An office staff member will provide you with the details and costs of the surgery.
Patient Financing options are available at Miami Plastic Surgery® and can be discussed in more detail during your consultation.
