Laser skin resurfacing is performed with a “super-pulsed” carbon dioxide (CO2) laser or Erbium laser to minimize or eliminate wrinkles and lines on your face or other areas such as your neck, chest or hands. Laser skin resurfacing involves a specialized beam of light energy, which is absorbed by your skin and surrounding tissues and minimizes your lines and wrinkles. In laser resurfacing, lines on your face can be significantly improved. This procedure is performed under sedation or using only topical anesthesia. Redness may persist for several days and make-up can usually be applied in two days.
