With the number of laser skin treatments more than doubling in the last decade, goes below the surface to inform consumers

According to the most recent statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the number of laser skin resurfacing treatments has increased to more than 426,000 per year, well in excess of the 171,000 10 years ago. says laser skin treatments have risen in popularity because they offer value-added benefits which go below the surface.

The facial cosmetic plastic surgery forum and information website recently posted a free article outlining laser skin treatment – explaining that, in comparison to facelift surgery. It is less expensive, less invasive and helps consumers meet their goals more quickly.

“Consumer interest in laser skin treatments has dramatically increased in recent years,” explains Shawn Miele for

“These procedures don’t carry the burden of extensive cost, down time or recovery,” adds Miele. “And the benefits go beyond the face. Plastic surgeons can use laser skin rejuvenation and resurfacing techniques to treat stretch marks and loose skin, too.”

“If a candidate isn’t ready or eligible for facelift surgery, they can still get lasting results with laser skin treatment procedures. These also get added benefits – like a boost in collagen production – which make their skin look fresher and more youthful in a relatively short amount of time.”

Typically, Miele says, laser skin treatment candidates are looking to:

・Delay surgery
・Get rid of fine lines
・Minimize creasing (ex: Crow’s feet)
・Refresh and rejuvenate their skin’s appearance
・Do away with wrinkles, hyperpigmenation and other discoloration

“Some consumers get laser skin treatment by itself. Others have laser skin treatment in combination with face lift surgery. Qualified plastic surgeons can customize treatment to help anyone put their best face forward. That, in part, contributes to its popularity.”

The ASPS explains consumers’ laser skin treatment options this way: “Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing can be achieved in a number of ways, ranging from laser, light and other energy-based treatments to chemical peels and other non-ablative methods.”

The article covers everything from laser skin treatment basics to laser skin resurfacing to help consumers understand what ablative and non-ablative laser techniques are, how they differ and how laser patterns affect outcomes and recovery.
