Cosmetic dermatology procedures are meant to help improve the appearance of the skin through various elective procedures.
Lasers are often used in cosmetic dermatology procedures. Take, for example, the situation of a person who has irregular pigmentation. The heat of the laser and the light of the laser combine to break apart the melanin molecules that have caused the pigmentation problems while at the same time inciting the growth of new skin tissue.

The more severe scars can be treated via such procedures as a facial chemical peel.
