Question: I am a 34 year old male and concerned about the wrinkles around my eyes. I am a Caucasian male and I would like to know if I had laser skin resurfacing just around my eyes, would that change the color of my skin in that area somewhat? Do you suggest getting the entire face treated because of pigment changes?
Answer: Laser resurfacing or deeper chemical peels in men should be avoided if possible due to pigmentation changes that cannot be easily covered with makeup. Use of Botox, Dysport and Fillers may be the best option for a man. If you do have very fair light colored skin then you can entertain laser resurfacing as long as you are aware of the potential changes.
