Laser skin resurfacing is one of the safe, prudent, and effective procedures to reduce the signs of aging for people who want to avoid cosmetic surgery.
During the initial consultation, the laser expert will explain all aspects of the treatment in order to help the patient make an informed choice.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides laser skin resurfacing to patients in Las Vegas, NV and surrounding communities in The Sagebrush State.
What are Laser Skin Resurfacing Before and After Images?
Before and after images in case of laser skin resurfacing refer to a set of pictures belonging to a previous patient who has received the same treatment successfully. The set includes images taken before the procedure and after the procedure at a time when the initial redness in the treated sites is resolved and complete effects of the treatment have settled in.
These pictures are taken only with the consent of the patient. The provider will take care to ensure that the patient’s privacy and confidentiality is maintained.
The goal of the treatment provider is to educate new patients about various aspects of the laser procedure through these pictures. The photographs serve as a visual tool to help a new patient understand what the procedure can or cannot for them.
Laser skin resurfacing procedures include aggressive or ablative treatments to repair deeply sun damaged skin, and less aggressive or non-ablative treatments for moderate skin enhancement. Some treatments may also combine the benefits of both ablative and non-ablative techniques. For a new patient, it can be difficult to decide which of the treatment approaches may be more suited to meet their aesthetic or anti-aging needs.
This is where the laser treatment provider can use before and after photos very effectively to help the patient make the best possible decision.
