Skin Resurfacing Questions

What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing is a gentler and more precise alternative to some other skin resurfacing procedures. Because laser resurfacing uses a finely calibrated laser, the treatment is very effectively limited to the treatment area.

What sort of problems can laser skin resurfacing treat?

Laser resurfacing is an effective treatment for a variety of skin problems, including:

  • Fine wrinkling
  • Scarring, including acne scarring
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Sun damage
  • Precancerous skin conditions

Am I a good candidate for laser skin resurfacing?

That depends on a number of factors. Laser resurfacing is most effective for patients with certain skin types, and those who don't have conditions that might interfere with wound healing. Laser resurfacing is not recommended for patients who have taken Accutane at any time in the past year.

Can I have more than one laser skin resurfacing?

Yes. Many patients like to have laser resurfacing at regular intervals, to slough off the damaged outer layers of skin as they regrow, and to stimulate collagen production in the long term.
