Question : I’m considering laser skin resurfacing to take care of some acne scarring on my face. Is the process painful? Do you use any anesthesia or a numbing agent when performing this procedure?
Answer : Because acne scars can be very deep, I still think the general anesthesia or intravenous sedation is the way to go. I know some people do not feel that way. The only pain you should have is a few hours of feeling like you have a bad sun burn.
