Ablative Laser Resurfacing

A top method to reduce cutaneous signs of photoaging is a laser skin resurfacing. But that's not the only indication. Scarring, keratoses, warts, and facial wrinkles all can be treated with the help of this method. The concept of resurfacing is based on selective thermolysis of the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin through the delivery of light energy. Fractional or non-fractional lasers are the instruments of choice. Fractional ones represent a less aggressive modality helping to shorten the recovery times while providing a good therapeutic effect. Overall this method is associated with a low-risk profile and a high satisfaction rate. The success of the procedure depends on physician, who is comfortable and well-trained to provide a quality treatment and post-procedure counseling.
