Common Questions and Answers about Laser skin resurface

Avatar m tn I asked this latter question because I signed up for a total of 3 laser treatments. If my skin is no longer able to heal and resurface then wouldn't that make further laser treatment of the same method useless? Each of the treatment cost me about 1700 dollars so I don't want to go on with it if it doesn't yield effective results.
Avatar n tn It feels as though my leg hairs and trying so hard to push their way through the skin on my legs. My next attempt at relief is to get laser hair removal to see if maybe it is mostly from my leg hairs. I'm not against trying anything and everything. As I stated I've lived with this for about 10 years and I am so ready to be done with it. I would love to wear shorts again, or go on water rides at amusement parks or SHOWER without fear.
Avatar n tn I haven't had laser treatment, but a couple years' worth of microdermabrasion treatments (biweekly) and chemical peels (monthly) to resurface my skin. Depending on the depth of the acne scars, you may need another round of treatments to achieve the smoothness you're looking for. You should wait at least six months before another laster treatment so that the skin has enough time to heal. I hope you find beautiful skin soon!!
Avatar m tn I posted a question about a month ago regarding genital warts, I can't find the post, so here goes again. A couple of years ago I noticed warts on my anus, I thought they were skin tags so I did nothing about it. Eventually I had them checked, they were warts and I had them removed and was put on Aldara. I used what my dermatologist gave me but I had no insurance so I never actually filled the prescription. The warts came back months later.
Avatar f tn A technique that involves using a beam of high-energy light to cut away the upper surface of the skin. The procedure is very precise, although the laser focus can be adjusted to resurface larger areas. It also stimulates both blood supply and collagen production - the support network for skin tissue. Just be aware that it can take about 10 months for collagen to regenerate, so don't expect to see the finished results until then.
Avatar n tn It is said that laser can destroy oil glands. Please look into research about the DHT hormone responsible for acne (roaccutane blocks this). I'd say your dose was too low to stop acne but would have little effect on an existing cyst. There are natural DHT blockers. One is called Saw Palmetto. Laser treatment can resurface the skin & get rid of scars. However it would take multiple treatments. A surgeon could also perform Dermabrasion (not to be confused with microdermabrasion).
Avatar n tn You have "recurrent corneal erosion syndrome". The condition is common and will not destroy your sight or cause serious loss of vision. It has been discussed in the past in the eye care forums. Use the search feature and type in "corneal erosions". Here is part of a recent post on the problem: Recurrent corneal erosions are the bane of the practice of ophthalmology for both the ophthalmologist (Eye MD) and the poor patient. I saw 2 of them in the office today.
Avatar m tn This is a previous post on the problem I pulled up: You have "recurrent corneal erosion syndrome". The condition is common and will not destroy your sight or cause serious loss of vision. It has been discussed in the past in the eye care forums. It usually starts after a scratched cornea that does not heal properly. In some instances it occurs due to a common disease of the outer layer of the cornea (basement membrane disorder).
Avatar n tn Your problem most closely sounds like "recurrent corneal erosions". This is a preivous post. Return to the Eye MD or another ophthalmologist. Don't let the techs put drops in your eyes. Tell him/her that you think you hae recurrent corneal erosions and ask to look carefully for them JCH II MD You have "recurrent corneal erosion syndrome". The condition is common and will not destroy your sight or cause serious loss of vision.
Avatar f tn ) It can be transmitted through skin to skin contact, so it is feasibly possible to contract HPV without having actual intercourse but simple genital contact. You do not need to be promiscous to contract this virus. It is so common, it only takes one person, one person who has been exposed prior to you. One. - There isn't any cure or treatment for HPV. There are treatments available for the effects of HPV (warts/dysplasia) but not the virus itself.
Avatar n tn She says the only thing she can think of is trying many candida shots (we only did 1 injection a week for 5 weeks - the standard) or do a combination of salicyclic acid (to thin the skin) and aldara (which may have had problems with absorption before). Does ANYONE have an idea?

Just had another skin biopsy three weeks ago and came back pre-cancerous (lentiginous junctional nevi with architechural disorder, moderate cytologic atypia (dysplastic nevus) according to shave biopsy. I hope that our Doctors are correct and these are nothing but I know how it feels to have to worry about it too. Good luck to both who post on here and God Bless!!!
