How is laser skin resurfacing done?
- The surgeon passes the laser over the area to be treated, which literally evaporates the targeted areas of skin and reveals undamaged, pink skin as a result.
- After the skin resurfacing is complete, the surgeon will cover the face with a thin film of antibiotic burn cream and a sterile dressing is applied to the treatment sites.
