As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants begin to take their toll on our skin, creating lines and wrinkles on our faces. Laser resurfacing can help minimize fine lines as they begin to occur, particularly those that form around the mouth and eyes. Laser treatments can be tailored to a variety of other skin problems as well.
Laser resurfacing is a relatively new method of improving skin texture and appearance. In many situations, it can provide the doctor with more control over the penetration of the skin than other resurfacing treatments, such as chemical procell and dermabrasion. In addition to skin resurfacing, lasers can sometimes be used to remove facial scars, acne scars, and unwanted hair.
