But study finds that skin discoloration can be common side effect

TUESDAY, July 22 (HealthDay News) -- Carbon dioxide laser resurfacing still seems the best way to erase telltale signs of aging on your face -- and keep them away.

The technique does have a fairly high rate of complications, namely lightening of the skin color, according to authors of a study published in the July/August issue of Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery.

It just confirms that carbon dioxide laser resurfacing is very effective for deeper facial wrinkles, and it's long-lasting."

The laser works by absorbing water inside and outside of sells, causing heat damage to nearby tissue. As a result, the skin produces more of the protein collagen, filling in wrinkles.

"It basically causes a controlled burn to the skin," Nouri explained. "Then it removes the epidermis [top layer of the skin] and dermis [middle layer of the skin]. It also causes contraction or tightening of the skin."

The authors of the study described the experiences of 47 patients who underwent full-facial carbon dioxide laser resurfacing at the University of Michigan. Forty-two of the patients were women; the average age was 52.

After more than two years of follow-up, participants' "wrinkle scores" improved 45 percent a
