Screen Shot 2016-04-27 at 10.11.57 AMWith the use of light, laser resurfacing is used to treat a variety of dermal conditions ranging from acne scars to age spots. The technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization. This procedure is offered as an Operating Room procedure and the patient is placed under sedation.

Fractionated CO2 laser skin resurfacing can lead to an overall younger and more attractive appearance. It can:

 

  • Removes fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smoothes acne and other scars
  • Evens out skin tone
  • Reduces skin blotchiness
  • Eliminates certain skin tumors and precancers
