Skin resurfacing involves removing the outer sun damaged layers of the facial skin with lasers, chemical peels, or dermabrasion. The recovery is intense, but the results are dramatic.
While Dr. Funcik was a pioneer with laser resurfacing, we do not generally recommend or require lasers today because the results are surpassed with modern versions of the classic Baker-Gordon Phenol Peel. The patient MUST accept that any skin resurfacing technique that will reliably and consistently significantly improve wrinkles may well produce some permanent, slightly uneven lightening of skin pigment that may be detectable without makeup.
