Can I use a laser if I have a silicone implant in my face?

I was wanted to know if I can use a laser on my face due to the fact that I have a silcon chin implant and a small drop of silcon on the bridge of my nose.

Generally the silicone, both the implants and the injectible forms, are placed quite deeply.  Below the dermis or in the deep dermis.  Depending on the laser, the level of would be higher than the silcone.   I would recommend you call the surgeon who placed the silicone and get his/her approval first though.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
