Resurfacing procedures can be safely performed around the eyes to soften the “crows feet”. Fine wrinkles around the mouth “smokers lines” can be dramatically improved after skin resurfacing. Dyschromias “age spots” can be lightened and the texture of skin throughout the face and neck can all be improved with the right resurfacing technique.
Ways of improving the quality and texture of skin are too many to count. A good plastic surgeon will be able to describe the different techniques available to you, and recommend which will work best for your skin. More importantly, a good plastic surgeon will also tell you when your concerns are best treated with a procedure instead of promising the same results can be achieved with a laser.
