Abstract

Because of its cosmetic implications in the treatment of photoaging and facial rejuvenation, CO2 and Er:YAG laser resurfacing has raised a lot of 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. As laser technology is refined, the side effect and complication profiles of laser resurfacing continue to improve.
