Laser skin resurfacing is appropriate for patients seeking treatment for discoloration, wrinkles or brown spots, sun damage, acne marks, or other types of imperfections in skin appearance. An ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing is someone who has realistic expectations, is open to discussing any laser skin rejuvenation concerns at the time of consultation and Willing to accept the limitations involved in the healing process

In general, the best candidates for laser resurfacing are :
  • Physically healthy and Psychologically stable
  • Wanting to look younger and more refreshed
  • Free of active skin infections, including acne
  • Possessing the appropriate skin tone for the type of laser used
  • Not taking Accutane, nor having taken it in the previous 18 months
  • Without any unusual scar formations, such as keloids
  • Well informed in regard to the procedure’s outcome
The above is only a partial list of the criteria that your physician will consider in determining whether or not this procedure is appropriate for you. Be sure to ask your physician if he/she considers you an ideal candidate for laser resurfacing.
