“Laser resurfacing is performed in our office with the Silktouch, Feathertouch CO2 Sharplan Laser using local anesthesia,” explains Dr. Roper. “When I do the entire face, eyelids and upper neck, the entire procedure is over and done with in two hours, with minimal discomfort.”
Face & Upper Neck Treatment, “Roper Lip”
The “Roper Lip”
There is a minimal downtime of 10-14 days with this procedure before sunscreen can be worn, depending on the depth of the wrinkles.
“This technique can be combined with Pelleve, Thermage, or Laser Toning, which do not any required downtime or time off work, to enhance the results of those procedures. Or we can combine the ‘Roper Lip’ at the same time as the Active FX™ procedure, to enhance the wrinkle removal on the upper lip in those very deep upper lip wrinkles. Occasionally, I will even combine Botox® and dermal filler, like Juvéderm®, to the upper lip to enhance the effects of the laser, if it is required,” explains Dr. Roper.
