Question: I would love to have laser skin resurfacing. I have some acne scars on my cheeks and have noticed the development of very small wrinkles on my face. Can both of these problems be fixed with the laser resurfacing?

Answer: Yes, both acne scarring and wrinkling can be fixed with a laser resurfacing procedure as the laser does know that it is treating acne scarring versus wrinkling and in essence the laser is just vaporizing the superficial layers of the skin so that healing can take place. It is the healing process with the deposition of a significant amount of new collagen the creates the skin tightening, smoothing, and wrinkle reduction that occurs after a laser peel. This then makes acne scarring less conspicuous. It will tighten and smooth out wrinkles on the face and overall rejuvenate the facial skin.
