What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
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.
Am I an Appropriate Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
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.
