Denver Laser Resurfacing
Laser resurfacing (also known as a laser peel) is a great way to improve facial skin irregularities. Depending on the type of laser used, improvements to texture, pigmentation, wrinkles, acne scars, tone, and looseness in the skin should be realized. Here at Denver Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Khoury uses most of the popular lasers on the market, which helps him to provide every option possible to his patients. Some of the lasers he uses include:
• Carbon dioxide (CO2) laser
• Fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser
• Sciton erbium laser
Dr. Khoury uses the best laser for the specific needs of each individual patient and can meet almost every patient’s expectations. The only limiting factor is the duration of recovery. The average down-time is between 5 to 7 days for the most extensive procedures, but patients are expected to be red or pink for a few weeks. This is easily covered with make-up, once cleared by Dr. Khoury — usually at one week. These new lasers also minimize the complications that were observed using older machines, such as hyperpigmentation, scarring and delayed healing.
Laser resurfacing is a great option for patients who are not ready for more invasive procedures, such as a face lift or eye lid procedure. Laser resurfacing does not have to performed on the entire face. It can be targeted to certain facial areas, such as the perioral (around the mouth) or the periorbital areas (around the eyes). Laser resurfacing is one of the best methods to address the wrinkles around the mouth.
