LASER SKIN REJUVENATION
Why your laser skin rejuvenation treatment should be provided by Dr. James Oestreicher
Laser skin rejuvenation gives Dr. Oestreicher
the ability to literally "paint away" wrinkles.
The introduction of laser skin rejuvenation in the 1990s represented a major breakthrough in eyelid cosmetic surgery because it gave patients the opportunity to achieve a healthier and more youthful appearance with minimal post treatment healing.
Laser skin rejuvenation, also known as laser skin resurfacing, can also be an alternative to blepharoplasty (eyelid tuck) if the objective is limited to removing or diminishing fine wrinkles. It can also be performed in combination with blepharoplasty or other cosmetic eyelid procedures and in most cases is a same-day, out patient treatment.
People with lighter skin tend to get the
best results with laser skin rejuvenation
"With laser skin resurfacing, a highly skilled surgeon can remove one layer of skin at a time with virtually no thermal damage or scarring," explains Dr. Oestreicher. "It's an incredible breakthrough that makes it possible to literally "paint away" wrinkles or lines."
Dr. Oestreicher also emphasizes the importance of taking into account a patient's skin type. "When you are contemplating the potential effectiveness of laser skin resurfacing, you have to keep in mind that people with lighter skins tend to get the best results. You can also get good results with individuals who have a darker complexion, but you have to take extra steps, such as applying a bleaching cream before and after the CO2 laser treatment. In the end, there is just no substitute for experience."
Good results are possible for most patients when laser skin resurfacing is used to:
- Smooth and "tighten" eyelid skin
- Reduce "crow's feet" wrinkles around the eyes
- Erase fine lines and wrinkles on the face (especially on the upper lip, cheeks and forehead)
- Soften "pucker" marks and frown lines
- Repair "smoker's lines" and "lipstick bleed" around the mouth
- Flatten and improve the appearance of scars
- Remove brown spots or "blotchy" uneven skin colour
- Smooth the skin on your entire face

"It really does take years off your appearance"
I had the bags under my eyes removed. I also had CO2 laser to smooth wrinkles. It really does take years off your appearance. I was very happy with the outcome and have had lots of positive comments ever since. After surgery, you look pretty beat up but I could go back to work in 2 weeks. The laser treatment takes quite a while to settle - up to six months, but it looks really good now too. I felt Dr. Oestreicher did a great job and I would recommend him for this type of surgery.
