Case for any complications for this procedure is rare. When they occur they may include skin discoloration, pigmentation changing, burning, scarring and virus infection. One thing you should know, laser skin resurfacing does not stop the aging process. That’s why, wrinkles, discoloration, and other imperfections can reappear throughout your lifetime.

Pigmentation Changing
Semi-permanent or permanent skin lightening may occur in the treated areas. This is unpredictable and hard to treat without permanent tattooing of the skin. The skin may also become hyperpigmented (darker) immediately following the surgery. Often this darkening treats itself, lightening on its own or responding to various skin care regimens that include hydroquinone (a bleaching crème) and alpha hydroxy (fruit) acids.

Scarring
Laser skin resurfacing may not sufficiently tighten the skin, and surgical excision may be necessary to achieve the results desired. It is most often worthwhile the try to perform laser procedure first to avoid the possibility of scarring, so do not be dismayed if a secondary procedure is necessary.

Burns and Injuries
Heat from the laser may cause burns or injuries. To reduce the risks involved in this procedure, carefully follow all of your surgeon’s instructions, both before and after surgery.
