Specializes in ENT and Head and Neck Surgery

Laser resurfacing: The laser procedure causes injury to the skin and as things heal, some of the pores may clog due to inflammation in the hair follicles and oil glands and cause an increase in acne lesions. It should be a temporary thing and ultimately, things should be better.
