Laser Resurfacing

Laser Resurfacing in Tampa Florida

What is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a procedure in which the top layers of skin are precisely removed leaving a smooth surface for skin rejuvenation. The erbium laser that Dr. Ruas prefers can be set to remove a very thin surface layer for a short recovery time, or a more aggressive treatment which requires a longer time for the new skin to regenerate and for redness to resolve.

Who is a candidate for laser resurfacing?
Not all patients are candidates for laser resurfacing. Dr. Ruas will determine if you are a candidate at the time of your visit. Patients with light skin and fine wrinkles are generally the best candidates for resurfacing.
