How effective is laser resurfacing?

Laser resurfacing can be very effective. It can be used to make your skin look younger and smoother, and results may last for many years. However, laser resurfacing is not a "cure" for aging skin. Eventually the natural skin aging process can cause wrinkles and lines to occur again. You can repeat laser resurfacing procedures to address new wrinkles and lines. In addition, laser resurfacing is not always recommended for dark-skinned individuals or those who have active acne as side effects may outweigh any benefits in these people.Laser resurfacing may be effective for depressed acne scars but not raised acne scars. It can be effective for warts, liver spots and some birthmarks.
