Abstract

Treatments for photoaging are commonly requested by cosmetic patients. Laser resurfacing treatment addresses the myriad aspects of photoaging, including fine rhytides, dyspigmentation, and abnormal texture. Recent developments in laser medicine-such as fractional resurfacing in both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths-have improved the safety and side effect profile of laser resurfacing. Both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths are effective. The use of lasers should be limited to experienced practitioners to minimize the risks of scarring, pigment alterations, and other unwanted effects.
