Candidates for laser skin resurfacing
If you’re interested in laser skin resurfacing in the Thousand Oaks and Westlake Village area, you may be a great candidate for the procedure. The best candidate for skin resurfacing is determined by skin type, which correlates with your ability to tan or burn in the sun. A person with a lighter skin type more easily burns in the sun, but is more likely to receive excellent results with skin resurfacing, with fewer complications. A thorough medical history is vital to determine candidacy. It is important that you provide any previous history of poor scarring or keloid formation, prior use of oral tretinoin (Accutane) for acne treatments, any previous resurfacing treatments or surgeries, and any history of lip or mouth sores. During the consultation, Dr. Tansavatdi will determine what level of treatment you need based on your goals, your skin type and color, thickness of skin in certain areas of the face, and your likelihood of poor healing or scarring.
