Because of its cosmetic implications in the treatment of photo-aging and facial rejuvenation, CO2 and Er:YAG laser resurfacing has generated much interest. It has replaced dermabrasion and medium and deep chemical peels in many clinical settings. The best technique or combination of techniques for any given treatment will depend on the judgment and experience of the skilled clinician. Treatment results have been impressive.
