Q A For Your Skinformation. My friend had the ResurFX laser treatment, and she is very happy with her result. I’m interested in having it too, but my skin is more olive-toned and blotchy than hers, so I wonder if it would work as well for me. The Resurfx Laser was just introduced this past January. It has been overwhelmingly a crowd pleaser. The gentle ResurFX laser improves fi ne lines, texture, large pores, tone, and scars with almost no visible healing, and it can be used on all skin types, so the chances are that you would be a good candidate for it. Many patients with uneven skin tone choose our ResurFX Plus treatment for additional improvement of discoloration. Q A I am a 32 year old man and I have very deep creases across my forehead. They run in my family, and I started to get them when I was still a teenager. I tried Botox in the forehead, but it didn’t help much. Is there anything else that could be done? We see many individuals like you who develop forehead lines at a young age, which is largely due to raising the eyebrows and heredity. Muscle relaxing treatments such as Botox or Dysport are usually helpful but often need to be repeated several times to attain your best results. If the lines are very deep we also can fi ll the lines with a new technique using Restylane or Juvederm. Jody Comstock, M.D. Tina Pai, M.D. 520.797.8885 6127 N.
