Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Franklyn Elliott has over 25 years of experience in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Over the years, Dr. Elliott has met with many patients who want to look younger but still maintain natural results. With his experience of over 300 facelift surgeries, Dr. Elliott has developed a specific technique to allow rapid recovery for patients without the use of dressings while providing subtle, rejuvenation results.
After a facial rejuvenation procedure such as blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), forehead lift or facelift surgery, Dr. Elliott may recommend CO2 laser skin resurfacing to his patients. Laser skin resurfacing can complement facial plastic surgery results by minimizing scarring and improving overall complexion. For patients who are not quite ready for a comprehensive facial procedure, laser skin resurfacing can help eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and birthmarks.
Laser skin resurfacing uses beams of light to target specific areas of concern on the face. Laser resurfacing removes the damaged outer layer of skin, while heating the underlying skin to stimulate collagen production. After treatment, facial skin will become smoother and firmer.
