Question: I used to have beautiful skin and those days are gone. My facial skin looks blemished all of the time. Will laser skin resurfacing even out the skin tone? Will it make my skin look younger?
Answer: Laser skin resurfacing can even out and improve skin color and tone and texture but not everyone is a candidate. For CO2 laser, you have to be fair skinned. Darker skinned patients cannot safely undergo CO2 laser skin resurfacing. Other types of lasers are available and a good outcome depends on your skin type, your race and ethnicity as well as the skill and judgment of the doctor or nurse doing the laser skin treatment.
