Is it Time to Consider Laser Resurfacing?

  • Topic Info:Laser resurfacing is a procedure that can drastically improve the flaws of your skin.  

    Recently, this field of cosmetic procedures has revolutionized the industry. The treatment is not a substitute for a face lift; however, it can tighten loose skin and remove deep lines, wrinkles and scars.  

    The lasers used in this procedure can be categorized into ablative and non-ablative. Non-ablative lasers are less invasive and require less downtime, while the ablative approach is generally more effective. The two lasers most commonly used are carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium.  

    In the hands of a qualified professional, you can see remarkable results. But which laser is best for you?  

    Director of esthetics at The Geldner Center in Chicago, Deanna Stellato, discusses what you can expect during and after treatment, as well as downtime, cost and possible dangers of the procedure.
