Will there be any scarring after treatment 4. What will my "down time" be? 5. Will the rhinophyma return and if so how long

Lasers for rhinophyma

Yes, you do have rhinopehyma, the severity is subjective, not objective. However in the scheme of things it is mild. I use a Co2 laser to treat this condition. Video shows the treatment, and recovery as well as the expected outcomes. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
