Laser resurfacing “drills” tiny holes into deeper layers of your skin, or “fractional resurfacing.” Your skin then tightens by “connecting the dots,” where your collagen contracts between the tiny laser holes.
This laser is effective in treating wrinkles, blotchiness or age spots, and scars from acne or other causes. It can be used on the entire face or specific areas. Certain other characteristics of your skin, such as its thickness and texture, may influence whether you are a good candidate for laser resurfacing. Some patients may benefit from the laser’s mild “tightening” effect on the skin, particularly in the lower eyelid area where the skin often becomes somewhat loose as a result of aging.
