Description

Since its approval for use in 2007, many surgeons have been using the laser for subcutaneous use, primarily for lipolysis, facial neck and body contouring, and skin tightening. Techniques have recently evolved to enable use of the subcutaneous laser with concurrent skin resurfacing techniques for improvement of photoaging and acne or facial scarring. The technique shows great promise in patients with facial aging and photodamage who are not deemed candidates for rhytidectomy surgery. With strict patient-selection criteria of mild to moderate facial laxity and mild to moderate photoaging, the procedure can be gratifying for the surgeon and patient alike.
