Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing, at Monterrey Plastic Surgery, can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

Laser skin resurfacing, in Monterrey Mexico, is one of the newest plastic surgery technologies, improves certain kinds of wrinkles and fine lines to create brighter and healthier looking skin.

At Monterrey Plastic Surgery we use, an advanced laser technology that combines three treatment modalities into one. This highly targeted treatment works by removing layers of skin with precision to improve the skin’s texture and tone.

Laser skin resurfacing, also known as a laser peel, laser vaporization and lasabrasion, can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Advantages

During this procedure, an invisible carbon dioxide laser light rapidly evaporates the water in the skin, removing the top skin layers and tightening the lower ones. Laser skin resurfacing can minimize facial wrinkles and help improve acne scarring and other skin irregularities.

Laser skin resurfacing offers a number of advantages including the following:

  • Less scaring, bruising and bleeding than many other resurfacing treatments
  • More accurate depth of treatment to obtain the best results
  • Effectively targets problem areas, such as fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth

Laser skin resurfacing can also be used in combination with traditional surgical techniques, such as an eyelid or facelift, to improve specific areas of the face that may not be improved by surgery alone.

Who is a Good Candidate?

Healthy men and women who have realistic expectations about the results are the best candidates for laser skin resurfacing. Laser skin resurfacing can improve minor facial flaws, such as:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles around or under the eyes, forehead or mouth
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin
  • Liver spots
  • Some precancerous skin lesions
  • Some forms of rosacea
  • Acne scarring
  • Enlarged oil glands on the nose

You will need to arrange a ride home after laser skin surgery due to the swelling and bruising associated with the procedure. Discomfort and pain can be managed with prescribed pain medication and ice packs.

Special skin care may be recommended. You will be instructed to stay out of the sun and use a good sunblock.
