I am interested in laser skin resurfacing to remove brown age spots and fine wrinkles. Is this a treatment that is finished in one session or does it take multiple treatments?
The answer to your question depends on what your tolerance for recovery is. Multiple lasers are available for your concerns including fractionated erbium or CO2 laser. The erbium laser we use is called Fraxel re:store. It requires multiple treatments, but the recovery for each is only about 1-2 days with makeup. The fractionated CO2 laser can be performed in one treatment usually and can be adjusted for a more intense treatment with longer recovery and more dramatic results or a lighter treatment with less recovery and less dramatic results.
