Laser and Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing Overview

The option of undergoing a cosmetic skin resurfacing procedure with general anesthesia or intravenous sedation carries unacceptable risks when a safer alternative is available. Using the Tumescent Technique, the safest anesthesia method ever invented for cosmetic skin resurfacing, Dr. Hogue performs removal of the upper skin layers with laser and radiofrequency energy. Using infiltrative dilute local anesthesia, the soft tissues of the entire face, under chin, and neck are completely numbed. Intravenous and general anesthesia techniques are not used at Hogue Cosmetic Surgery due to their increased risks of death and complication rates, and the surgeon’s desire to have the patient remain safely awake and cooperative during the skin resurfacing procedure.
