Laser resurfacing and facelifts both have their individual strengths, but when used together, they can provide an even more rejuvenated look.
A facelift can tighten, but only light- or energy-based devices can improve the quality and function of the skin. On the other hand, lasers alone can’t accomplish what a facelift can.
Laser resurfacing is great for addressing wrinkles and discoloration, but only a facelift can address gravity- and age-related changes like sagging skin and fat, and eliminating excess skin.
A laser treatment coupled with a facelift is a dynamic duo, which is why many plastic surgeons use both when designing a facial rejuvenation plan. However, many surgeons will only use laser resurfacing in limited areas if it’s done at the time of a facelift, since the combination may increase the complication rate.
