This gentleman had obvious thickening of his nose, a condition called Rhinophyma, a form of rosacea. Treatment was with both an erbium laser (first layer of skin removed) followed by CO2 then Erbium for the final pass. Note the slightly deviated nose- that was secondary to a foot ball accident he had in his teens. Downtime following rhinophyma treatment can be up to 3 weeks, depending on the severity of the condition. Dr Davin Lim Laser dermatologist, Brisbane. Australia
