Laser Resurfacing for Facial Skin Rejuvenation
Laser resurfacing of the face has been a major breakthrough for skin rejuvenation. It can be used for a variety of facial conditions, and the results are truly dramatic.
The goal of laser skin resurfacing is simple; replace damaged skin with new, fresh skin. Techniques for skin resurfacing have made enormous advances, allowing patients to achieve nearly flawless complexions. With proper sun protection, results can last for more than five years. Many systems allow for light, moderate or deep laser resurfacing. When light resurfacing is performed, patients can typically return to normal activities within four to five days, and redness commonly disappears within three to five weeks. The primary targets of laser skin resurfacing include:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the face, especially around the upper lip, cheeks and forehead
- Loose eyelid skin
- Crow's-feet around the eyes
- Pucker marks, (smoker's lines) and frown lines
- Brown spots and splotchy, uneven skin tone
- Scars, especially acne scars
- Loose skin around the neck and jowls
