Laser resurfacing is the most aggressive form of skin rejuvenation, designed to maximally correct coarse wrinkles, lax skin, premalignant skin conditions and color irregularities. One option of laser resurfacing is a clinic-based procedure, where patients with coarse wrinkling around either the eyes or the mouth are refreshed with permanent, maximal reduction. A second option is full facial treatment which requires additional sedation for the actual treatment. After erbium laser resurfacing the skin initially recovers in approximately one week and continues to improve for months. The result is the permanent restoration to smooth, bright, radiant skin.
