This woman from Ventura County presented to our office for treatment of changes associated with sun damage and aging of the skin. She was particularly bothered by the irregular blotchy pigmentation on her face, fine lines around the mouth and eyes, and skin crepiness over her cheeks. We discussed various treatment options, and it was decided that Erbium YAG laser resurfacing would be her best option.
She underwent a full-face Erbium YAG laser resurfacing, which was performed under intravenous sedation in our Medicare-accredited surgery center, Skin Surgery Center. She healed completely within 10 days and continued a regimen of sun protection and other topical to maintain the excellent result and avoid further sun damage in the future.
