Unlike fillers and Botox which last only months, the benefits from laser resurfacing last many years. You can prolong and maximize those benefits by practicing adequate sun protection. The procedure generates an entirely new layer of epidermal tissue (the top layer of skin) as well as tightening dermal tissue (the deeper layer of skin). There is no comparison to laser resurfacing using a co2 laser for improvement of skin texture, color irregularities, and skin tightening. Do find a dermatologist who has years of laser experience and training to perform your procedure. It is ideally suited to those patients who desire improvement in the depth of their wrinkes, particularly around the eyes and mouth.
