Question: I am interested in laser skin resurfacing to remove brown age spots and fine wrinkles. Is this a treatment that is finished in one session? What will my face look like the next day? Will I be able to go to work?
Answer: Facial skin rejuvenation depends on your skin type and color and ethnicity as well as your needs and your tolerated “down time.” CO2 laser is the gold standard but there is a 1-3 week down time depending on the strength of the laser. Fractionated CO2 laser heals quicker but several treatments are needed. Full CO2 is a one time treatment usually but there is quite a bit of down time. Peels can also help with brown age spots and fine lines and wrinkles. There are various strengths in peels such as 35% TCA or VI peel, etc. I would have to see your face to give you the best resurfacing aging skin rejuvenation options.
