Are laser settings used during surgery usually recorded?
Doctor Answers 7
Thank you for your question. Your surgeon should be able to provide you with complete records of your procedure. In addition, the laser's settings are recordable, which informs both the patient and the operator as to how the results of the procedure are linked to the strength of the procedure. I suggest that you discuss in-person with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.
Is it appropriate to record laser settings for resurfacing procedures
I am sorry you are having post-laser problems. It is absolutely the standard of care to record all of the laser settings used in practice. Laser settings vary from patient to patient and not to record them makes little sense.
