Laser Skin Resurfacing: Is It For You?

Would you like to have younger, fresher, more radiant looking skin? If so, then laser skin resurfacing could be the treatment you've been looking for. This procedure can help to greatly diminish the appearance of age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and more. This method utilizes a laser to peel away damaged, old skin and reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath. This procedure can work for many people, and you could be one of them.


Most people who undergo laser resurfacing will not experience any scarring or, at most, minimal scarring as a result of the procedure.

If, however, you have a tendency to scar easily and/or excessively, such as if you are someone who is prone to keloid scarring, this procedure may not be the best fit for you.

Should you choose to receive a consultation relevant to the procedure, be sure to provide information about your scarring history to avoid negative outcomes.


If you are considering laser skin resurfacing, you may be wondering if you are the "right" age for the procedure. In truth, though, there really is no right age.

You can get laser skin resurfacing whenever you develop skin issues that you want to fix. Rest assured that you are never too old or too young for this helpful procedure.

Other Treatments

Many people who are considering laser skin resurfacing are concerned about whether or not this procedure can be combined with other, similar procedures. The answer is yes, in most cases.

Typically, there is no problem with having both laser resurfacing and other common cosmetic procedures, such as:

  • Botox
  • Dermal fillers
  • Pulsed dye treatment for broken blood vessels
  • Facial plastic surgeries

Your practitioner can advise you as to when it is suitable to have other procedures performed; some of these procedures can even be done on the same day as or in conjunction with laser skin resurfacing for a whole new you!


Amazingly, with laser skin resurfacing, you don't need to devote much, if any, "downtime" to healing. Your skin will likely be pink and a bit sore after the procedure, but this should go away quickly.

In fact, many people resume their regular routines right away. The only real precaution that has to be taken in most cases is staying out of the sun for prolonged periods of time and wearing sunblock regularly.

To determine if it's a good fit for you, book a consultation.
