Case Study


Face Laser Resurfacing Before & After Photos


The patient presented with very deep creases on his cheeks and other areas of his face. These types of deeper lines respond very well to our Erbium resurfacing laser.


This is the patient just one month post his Erbium resurfacing procedure. Notice the dramatic improvement in the deeper lines and texture of the skin.

Other case studies

The ideal patient for Laser resurfacing has fair skin. The laser works well at removing fine lines, pigmentation and wrinkling. For those who have olive skin, there is a risk that the Melanocytes- the pigment producing cells may over react. This causes the skin to turn brown. Usually, this is only temporary but it may be a bit of a nuisance. For a darker skinned patient, like those from the Mediterranean, Dr Lanzer may tend to use the fractional laser which has a lesser risk of this occurring. The ideal skin to treat are the fine wrinkles and lines around the eyes and mouth.

The aging of the skin can produce a unevenly toned skin. Removing outer and inner dermis of the skin allows the skin to form a new layer from the deeper layers and forms a tighter and smoother appearance. After the cosmetic procedure, makeup may enhance the result because the skin is smoother. It is important to protect the skin from the sun to prevent further aging and pigmentation. Usually after laser resurfacing there is some redness. With the newer contour erbium lasers, the redness is reduced when compared to the early days, when Dr Lanzer first started with the CO2 laser.

Dr Lanzer will often combine laser resurfacing with other procedures. A filler in the lip will help produce a more pronounced look and help enhance the resurfacing procedure. Laser resurfacing is often combined with, laser blepharoplasty, suture lift or face lift surgery.

Creases and wrinkles can be actively reduced with a face laser resurfacing procedure, which is clearly displayed in this case study. The patient in question had some deep creases in the cheek area, but also on other parts of the face. After the laser resurfacing procedure, the patient experienced a dramatic improvement in the deeper lines of the face, as well as the texture of the skin. Therefore, the case study above is a prime example of the dramatic impact laser resurfacing can have on a patient’s skin. Of course, this treatment is not only an option for men, because laser resurfacing is also obtained by women.

To discover if you are eligible for laser resurfacing, you will need to make an appointment with a licensed dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon. Dr Lanzer is an experienced cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist, so he is the advised person to speak to about anti-ageing treatments. Even though laser resurfacing is quite effective, it is always best to get an evaluation by an experienced surgeon to determine if the treatment is right for you. Another anti-ageing treatment can also be one of your options, so always speak with your surgeon about all available options before you decide on a specific treatment.
