If you've ever wished that you could "renew" your complexion to make it smoother and more even-toned, laser resurfacing may be a good option for you.
The physicians at the the Duke Aesthetics Center are experts in cosmetic laser resurfacing, also called laser peel. A laser peel is a procedure that smoothes the facial skin by using a laser to refinish damaged areas and shrink fine wrinkles. The result is a fresher, smoother complexion.
A beam of laser energy is used to vaporize the upper layers of damaged skin with accurate precision. As new cells form during the healing process, a smoother, tighter, younger-looking skin surface appears.
This outpatient procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour.
Some of the risks involved with a laser peel include the development of hypo- or hyper-pigmentation, which is a change of skin color in the treated area, including loss of color or excessive color.
