Hi Alice, I have lines below my eyebrows which l believe cannot be reduced by surgery. My dermatologist has recommended laser. Is there a risk of pigmentation post treatment?

Hi, yes, laser – in the right hands- might well be able to help these lines by tightening the skin. There is always a potential risk of hyperpigmentation if laser is used inappropriately, so make sure you’re in good hands. There’s more info on laser skin resurfacing here and there’s a Tweak of the Week video about one of the Sciton lasers here If laser treatemnt is done really close to the eye, you’ll need to wear a kind of metal contact lens to protect your eyes during the treatment.
