There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the before-and-after pictures comedian Chelsea Handler posted following her recent laser resurfacing treatment—and rightfully so. The results evidenced in the photos are truly remarkable, highlighted by a significant improvement in skin tone and texture as well as a noticeable reduction in lines and wrinkles.
So can this quality of outcome be expected for everyone who receives laser skin resurfacing, or is it just another celebrity picture photoshopped to create a desirable—yet likely unattainable—image?
First of all, Chelsea has publicly stated that she isn’t being paid to market a product—she simply wants to share her results with the world on her own. Secondly, in our experience here at Art Plastic Surgery, laser skin resurfacing can absolutely help qualified patients significantly enhance the appearance of their skin for a revitalized, more youthful aesthetic.
Our New Jersey plastic surgeons, Dr. John Cozzone and Dr. Luis Zapiach, offer laser skin resurfacing with the Alma Pixel CO2 laser. For women and men who are identified as good candidates, this state-of-the-art, fractionated CO2 laser procedure can help:
- Enhance skin tone
- Improve skin texture/quality
- Diminish age and sun spots
- Reduce facial lines and wrinkles
- Minimize scarring (including acne scars)
Ultimately, the quality of laser resurfacing results will vary based on each individual’s unique skin type and aesthetic concerns, but we generally find that our patients are extremely happy with their final outcome.
