Laser resurfacing is a procedure designed to diminish wrinkles, sun spots and acne scarring. It is used to improve one's appearance. It is important to note there are many different lasers available and each has its own specific use, benefit and risk.
For resurfacing the skin, laser uses a high-density beam of light to remove thin layers of skin and/or multiple layers of skin to achieve a smooth, youthful effect. Laser resurfacing has also been found to improve the skin's elasticity and firmness.
