Thanks to advances in laser technology, there are now a variety of different nonsurgical laser skin treatments that you can choose from. The best laser treatment or combination of treatments for you will depend on your individual skin type and concerns. You may want to talk to your plastic surgeon about these three common laser treatments and whether or not they could help you reach your goals.
If acne scars, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots or other signs of discoloration are concerns, Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing may offer a solution.* For deep lines or wrinkles, your plastic surgeon might recommend combining Fraxel® laser treatments with injectables like BOTOX® or dermal fillers.
PicoSure® FOCUS™ is an advanced laser skin rejuvenation treatment that’s FDA-approved to address a variety of skin concerns, including pigmentation issues, acne scars and wrinkles.* PicoSure® is currently the only cosmetic laser treatment available that utilizes picosecond technology to emit laser energy in trillionths of seconds.

For broken or dilated blood vessels, angiomas, birthmarks, rosacea and other signs of redness or flushing of the skin, your plastic surgeon may recommend Vbeam® laser treatments.
No matter which type of laser skin rejuvenation you choose, keep in mind that your plastic surgeon may recommend a series of treatment sessions. The exact amount and length of your sessions will depend on your unique needs, and this can be discussed during your initial consultation with your plastic surgeon.
