Question:

Does the deep strength laser speed up the process of wound healing? Would you use this during facial cosmetic surgery?

Answer:

I assume you are asking the question about a carbon dioxide laser which is the deepest type of laser resurfacing. It can often be used in facial cosmetic surgery to resurface the deepest and most difficult wrinkles around the mouth involving the face. While the C02 laser is probably the most effective modality for resurfacing aged sun-damaged and wrinkled skin, the patient can often have a two-three month period of time where their skin is pink and almost looks like a light windburn. The results can be quite dramatic as seen on our website but I am typically careful to inform patients that this does not necessarily a faster recovery period than with a chemical peel.
