Can laser peel treatments cause facial fat loss?
Answered by admin
My sister got laser skin resurfacing done a few weeks ago. She had a really good experience, but my research on the topic scares me. I read that sometimes the lasers can kill off the blood that nourishes the facial fat, causing a sunken look. Have there been any documented cases of drastic facial fat loss in laser peel patients?
Laser resurfacing of the skin is incredibly safe if performed by an expert laser physician. There are so many different lasers we use safely and successfully for this process depending on the problem we are treating. Some of the brands we like include the Solta Fraxel, Syneron eMatrix and Sciton ProFractional. No matter what there is no reason, if this procedure is done correctly, to ever expect that the blood supply will be affected. Fat loss and the sunken look should not ever occur
