From the beginning of time, people suffering from the disfigurement of facial scarring have searched for ways to improve these imperfections. Thanks to refinements in a variety of cosmetic surgical techniques, there are several safe, effective procedures available today to improve facial appearance, including laser resurfacing. Laser resurfacing is one of the most effective ways to help get rid of scars, pigmentation, and fine lines. The downtime for resurfacing is typically seven days. Following treatment, sun exposure should be avoided until Dr. Mirrafati gives patients the “okay.” Laser resurfacing can make patients look years younger.
