Laser resurfacing and chemical peels can efface the fine lines and wrinkles of the face. Additionally, the skin "tightens" over time, giving an additional "lift". Skin resurfacing can be performed on specific areas, such as around the eyes, the cheeks, forehead or the mouth or over the entire face. These photos show the before and after appearance after a medium chemical peel.
Intense Pulse light therapy is an excellent way to control reddish discoloration and is useful in the treatment of rosacea.
Dark red spots, especially those associated with scars, can be treated easily with an Nd-YAG laser.
