Laser Skin Resurfacing Under Eye Wrinkles

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective treatment to reduce facial wrinkles and skin issues such as acne scars and blemishes. In the procedure, the laser directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at the sun damaged skin. This encourages the skin to produce new and healthier skin with better elasticity and texture.

This is a short treatment that takes about one hour to perform. There is no downtime and you can return to your normal activities. However, it is advisable to avoid spending time in the sun as this type of treatment takes about two weeks to heal and can take more than a month for your skin to completely return to normal.
