Laser resurfacing of the facial skin is a technique to improve fine lines and wrinkles of the face as well as reduce pock marks or other signs of skin damage. It is similar to dermabrasion of the skin in that it allows for the removing of surface layers of the skin to improve irregularities and and permit the skin to heal in time with a smother surface. This procedure can usually be done under local anaesthesia at the office or as an out patient. Time is required for healing and the normal coloring of the skin to return.
