Question: I am a lifetime car mechanic and have had my share of burns and scrapes, leaving my arms especially damaged.  Would laser skin resurfacing be a good option for treating such a large area of the body?

Answer: No, laser skin resurfacing really cannot be performed on the body the same way that it can on the facial region due to fact that the body does not heal as quickly as the face and, ultimately, we would just create more scarring on the body before the completion of the healing phase.  There are various chemical peels that can be performed on the body such as salicylic acid.  We can also treat the body skin with fractionated lasers such as the ProFractional laser by Sciton. I would recommend a consultation at Quintessa Medical Spa.
