When performed by an experienced and trained laser surgeon, laser surgery is primarily a safe procedure. However, there are risks to all procedures, including laser surgery. Scarring and textural changes can occur, and the likelihood varies depending on the specific laser surgery. Overall, the probability of this happening is low. Pigment change (too light or too dark) can occur after laser surgery. In many occasions this is related to sun exposure. Sun precautions need to be adhered to closely before and after laser surgery. If you should choose to have a laser treatment, follow up care will be provided to you.
