Question: How effective are laser skin resurfacing procedures. What exactly do they do?
Answer: Well, there are a multitude of different laser skin resurfacing procedures, from different lasers to different types of laser treatments from many different manufacturing companies, but in essence they all injure the skin somehow, whether that is by heating up the tissue or literally vaporizing the tissue. Some treat the entire surface of the skin while others treat small sections or fractionations of the skin itself. Ultimately, I think it is important not what laser is being used, but who is using it and their experience with this laser. In other words, I would recommend seeking out a facility that has extensive experience using these lasers and has multiple different lasers that they can select from to improve upon your specific concern.
