I’m 27 and from Reston, Virginia. I have little bumps all over my face. I’m not sure if they’re acne or clogged pores but they’re very embarrassing and makeup only makes them look worse. Could laser resurfacing help?
Laser resurfacing can be useful in improving skin texture, acne scars, wrinkles and pigment irregularity, however is not ideal for active acne issues. Before considering skin resurfacing it important to address your skin care regimen and find out what is causing your bumps. Other options to consider are light chemical peels with the alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA) to exfoliate and improve your skin texture. To provide you with an ideal treatment recommendation, it would be best for you to be seen in our facial plastic surgery practice in Reston, VA.
