During your visit with Dr. Shelton, he will listen to your concerns and goals. He will evaluate your physical appearance and then tell you if you are a candidate for treatment and develop a treatment plan. The benefit and risks of the procedure will be discussed along with the expected recovery time, if any, and instructions for care. Prices for the procedures will be quoted during the visit prior to you having the procedure. If you are not a candidate for the procedure you're interested in having done, he will tell you why and possibly recommend a different procedure. Dr. Shelton will not want you to spend money to have a cosmetic procedure if he does not think there is a very good chance that you will have a good result.

Until now, two varieties of laser treatment have been available for cosmetic enhancement-ablative and non-ablative. Traditional ablative, which literally means vaporization at a very high temperature, are very effective at destroying unwanted tissue but may have significant side-effects and require a lengthy healing period.
As a sub specialist in dermatologic surgery, Dr. Shelton has a thorough understanding of the causes of damaged skin that can be improved by laser resurfacing. Prior to resurfacing, the physician will access skin's conditions as well as the prior history of facial procedures and Acne Treatment.
