I have had a lot of sun damage, will laser therapy help?

Q:

I have dark spots, bags under my eyes and loose skin. Will laser surgery help?

A:

In general, laser resurfacing or similar treatments such as fractionated laser can be very helpful for skin damage from chronic UV exposure. Whether it would optimally address all of your specific concerns would require a consultation.
