Facial resurfacing uses a CO 2 laser whereby a high energy beam of light is used to vaporize lines, wrinkles, scars, dark spots and other irregularities of the skin. The laser is precise enough to eliminate imperfections in the skin layer by layer. The process also stimulates the skin to form new collagen over time to provide better elasticity and support. Ophthalmologists are specifically trained in the use of lasers and have been using them in the treatment of eyes for over twenty years. Facial resurfacing using a CO 2 laser is done in our office surgical suite and depending on the size of the area to be treated, usually lasts from fifteen minutes to an hour. The procedure is performed using a local anesthetic. During the initial healing phase, some weeping and crusting of the treated areas will occur. Most patients require up to ten days recovery before beginning normal activities. Redness will gradually fade within 4 to 12 weeks depending on your skin type and depth of the laser treatment. It is important to follow the post-operative instructions of your surgeon carefully to ensure maximum results.
