Having wrinkles, acne scars and sun-damaged skin can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Across the Sutter Health network, cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists and other skin care professionals use a variety of laser resurfacing procedures to rejuvenate the skin on your face, neck, chest and hands.
Laser resurfacing can treat common skin disorders and reduce the signs of aging. It’s often used to treat uneven pigmentation, skin blotches, fine lines, acne scarring, stretch marks, age spots, post-surgical scars and large pores. There are many different types of skin resurfacing procedures, using a wide variety of laser devices.
Erbium laser skin resurfacing, CO2 laser skin resurfacing and fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing are some of the most common procedures performed. Knowledgeable doctors and skin care professionals in the Sutter Health network can help you determine the proper treatment for your skin care needs. With the right care, including a good home skin care regimen and no extensive sun exposure, the results of laser skin resurfacing can last for many years.
