Laser Skin Resurfacing

During laser skin resurfacing laser light is applied to the skin to tighten the skin surface and remove fine wrinkles. It is most often used on the skin of the face.

The healing time for laser treatment tends to be longer than for other skin procedures, particularly when a carbon dioxide laser is used. The alternative, Er:YAG lasers, are absorbed by the skin more readily but the results obtained are not as consistently good as the carbon dioxide laser.

One major consideration is that laser treatment leads to the likelihood of coldsores, even in patients who have never had them before, therefore it is important that anti-viral treatment is taken before and afterwards.
