If aging, acne, or too much time in the sun has left your face with blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines, laser skin resurfacing may help your skin look younger and healthier. 

How laser resurfacing works:

A laser device is positioned over the face and used to send beams of energy to the skin. As the beam hits the skin, it removes layers of damaged tissue, reducing fine wrinkles, scars, or other blemishes. The procedure can often be performed in a single session without anesthesia at a local medical spa. While there are many types of laser resurfacing treatments available, they all work by sending beams of light deep into your skin and vaporizing damaged cells.

Laser resurfacing can be used to treat a number of age-related skin problems, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Brown spots (sun damage)
  • Melasma (pregnancy mask)
  • Peeling sunburned skin 
  • Wrinkles



You may have redness and swelling for several days after the procedure. Your skin will start to peel within a few days, as new skin cells grow to replace the damaged tissue. You may need to avoid sunlight for several months after laser skin resurfacing. Be sure to follow all instructions provided by your doctor.The procedure will take about two hours. If you have undergone a chemical peel, you should wait a week before this procedure to allow the skin to heal. And you may have some swelling and redness for 24–48 hours after the procedure

Risks and possible complications:

Laser resurfacing is not appropriate for everyone Laser skin resurfacing is generally considered safe. However, it can have some side effects, including temporary changes in skin color and texture (sometimes these changes are permanent), irritation, temporary numbness or tingling, and damage to the eyes. Laser-treated areas may look dry and flaky for a few months after treatment if not taken care of properly.

In some cases of significant sun damage, a laser resurfacing procedure may not be able to completely remove thick scars or pigmented spots without damaging the previously healthy skin underneath.

Alternative treatments: 

 If you have a minor skin problem, your doctor may recommend a chemical peel or microdermabrasion. These procedures typically involve applying acid or abrasive substances to the skin to remove damaged tissue. Microdermabrasion uses fine crystals sprayed onto the face to remove dead skin cells, and can be performed by a licensed professional at a spa. Botox treatment is another alternative that can work for many people.
