Dr. Bittar uses the Luxar NovaPulse® CO2 laser for cosmetic skin resurfacing, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and acne scarring. The laser beam removes the outer layers of the skin, and the subsequent healing process results in a firmer, smoother appearance. Unlike surgical face lifts, cosmetic skin resurfacing is performed in Dr. Bittar’s office using a topical anesthetic without the use of scalpels or stitches. A reduction in wrinkles is usually immediately noticeable. The treated area may appear red for some time following the procedure, and the patient will need to avoid sun exposure. Healing time varies, but patients are usually able to return to work within a few days. The best candidates for this procedure are individuals with lighter skin tones.
If you are looking to reduce the appearance of broken blood vessels, rosacea or similar issues, Dr. Bittar also offers IPL photofacials at his Austin facial plastic surgery practice.
