Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Artwork by Dr. BYUN

Laser Skin resurfacing is known to be a technique for dramatically reducing any sun damage to the skin, uneven colored pigments, wrinkles, scarring, and reducing any aging lines.

Dr. BYUN does not recommend getting these treatments regularly, as they can cause long-term tissue damage. With that said, a few treatments to repair a specific skin issues are fine. Dr. BYUN’s office does not currently have a laser in office, but will have laser days throughout the year, where lasers are utilized by Dr. BYUN and his team.

Dr. BYUN says, “Stop Everything!”

Dr. BYUN has been teaching this very simple, yet important concept for over 25 years; “STOP Everything and JUST Age!” Don’t let bad cosmetic procedures be performed on you because you will be chasing problem after problem until you’re no longer recognizable. Dr. BYUN teaches this to everyone he can including his students and residents at Northwestern University. Yes, everyone ages. But every ‘minor’ cut, pull, injection and fat transfer add up and negatively affect one’s ‘normal aging.’  No, you don’t have to age like a grandma, you can age gracefully with a Face Restoration, which is 180° different from a Facelift. The popular buzzwords such as vertical lift, deep plane lift, etc are all pulling the tissues apart from where they came from. Fat grafts leave lumps and migrate south, especially with multiple treatments. Man made pharmaceutical products should NOT be stuffed into the face due to making the face heavier thus expediting the aging process. PDO threading and skin tightening lasers all create scar tissues and damage your tissues.

ALL of these nonsensical procedures should be stopped immediately. Surgeons, dermatologists, and other related titles should honor human facial tissues, not pump them up, burn or destroy them. Do NOT let any surgeon pull your facial tissues away (up and sideways), and definitely do NOT let them add anything to, or subtract anything from your face. The only way Plastic surgeons should be repairing the face is by placing the tissues back to where they came from. DIRECTION is what has Dr. BYUN standing out amongst his peers. While 99% of surgeons will pull the skin, muscles, and other tissues up and away (towards the ears), Dr. BYUN places the muscles back up and IN towards the MIDLINE of the face; back to where the muscles fell from in the first place, honoring the orientation of the tissues, their insertion, and origin of muscle fibers. He does not pull them away, but telescopes them back into layers. Dr. BYUN visualizes the aging muscles from underneath via endoscope during this procedure. He sees facial tissues from the inside out, not the outside in. This is the most physiologically correct way to repair the ‘aging’ face. 

Dr. BYUN is considered a global expert and leader in facial enhancement procedures. Aging normally over the next 20+ years after the repair is the true BYUN difference.

You may be wondering, how is he the only surgeon using this technique? The answer is found in the before and after photos of many surgeons. Other surgeons choose to showcase very young patients and neglect to show how they age over time. Their faces aren’t restored, if you look closely, you can see the patient’s displaced muscles. They can look “good” for a short period of time due to swelling, and the temporary benefits of fat grafts and/or fillers BUT, eventually, they age into an abnormal face.

If you have these above issues, you will be a good candidate for Dr. BYUN’s restorative repair surgery. If you have been delaying face surgery because you have seen so many bad facelifts out there, you have come to the right source. Dr. BYUN will honor your tissues and put your aging tissues back to their native position, so you will look normal and age normally forever.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure

Laser skin resurfacing is a procedure performed with a hand held device that can improve damaged areas of skin, while stimulating the growth of new cells. The Laser light will penetrate the skin with the combination of a controlled heating sensation and controlled depth until the desired results are achieved. The laser procedure not only removes unwanted lines or other imperfections, but also helps tighten and firm the skin giving you a smoother and more youthful look.

Laser Skin Resurfacing Anesthesia

General and local anesthesia can be used when the laser treatment takes place, depending on procedure length and anticipated discomfort.

Laser Skin Resurfacing After Care

Recovering from the laser procedure can take two or three weeks depending on how well the patient’s body responds to the treatment. Many patients may experience redness that can last a little longer than 2 weeks. During the healing process, ice packs, and proper skin cleansing are recommended. As the patients new collagen generates, the skin will look bouncy, smooth and full of life.
