Laser resurfacing is used to improve the texture and appearance of the face and neck. Your trained facial plastic surgeon at AFPS can selectively reduce pigmentation, spider veins and birthmarks. Lasers can effectively diminish appearances of acne and even non-responsive skin after a facial surgery. Skin tightening, hair removal, and photo rejuvenation are procedures also included using lasers. Lasers can soften fine lines around the lips and eyes, reduce the wrinkles and remove certain blemishes on the face. Port-wine stain birthmarks respond remarkably well to laser treatment. Warts can also be removed without surgery through the use of lasers. The effect is better skin-tone and texture with a softer, more youthful appearance. The technique, using an advanced carbon dioxide laser and pulsed light energy delivered in a scanning pattern, vaporizes superficial, damaged skin cells safely and effectively, while tightening the deeper collagen layer.
Since the facial plastic surgeon will often use the lowest intensity setting of the laser, some problems may require more than one treatment, but some conditions may respond successfully with only one treatment. Cosmetic laser surgery is usually performed in an outpatient setting. After the surgery, you will probably experience some swelling and skin redness for several days. Utilizing the expertise of the physicians and skin care specialists at Acadian Skin Care Center, your skin will get the attention it needs throughout the healing process.
