The U-M Center for Facial Cosmetic Surgery offers a variety of laser treatments, which are detailed below. See laser resurfacing before and after photos.
BroadBand Light (BBL), Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Photorejuvenation
BBL, IPL and photorejuvenation use broadband light to reduce the appearance of sun damage, including brown spots, excess blood vessels and redness. Photorejuvenation may also improve fine lines and texture, giving the skin a softer, smoother feel..
Laser Hair Removal
We offer complete full body hair removal. Our new profile laser uses an infrared light beam that targets and heats hair follicles. Laser hair removal is safe and effective for all skin types, but always inform your provider if you have been tanning, using tanning products or exposed to the sun within the last three weeks before treatment.

Laser resurfacing can reduce facial wrinkles, scars and blemishes. During this treatment, your doctor will use the laser to send short, concentrated, pulsating beams of light at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time. As the treated area heals, the new skin that forms is smoother and firmer. A consultation will provide you with a realistic appraisal as to what degree of improvement you can expect.
This advanced laser skin rejuvenating treatment precisely removes the outermost layer of skin, helping to smooth the skin’s surface while blending irregular pigmented age spots at the same time. The procedure is customized to the needs of each individual and to the specific skin conditions to be corrected, which include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, irregular pigmentation and excessive sun damage. You can expect to see smoother, healthier and more vibrant skin.
