Laser resurfacing is a skin rejuvenating treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scars, hyperpigmentation, and skin discoloration from blemishes or trauma. It can also shrink enlarged pores. The process involves directing pulses of light energy to remove the top layer of skin so that healthy, fresh, evenly-toned and textured skin can be revealed.

Laser skin resurfacing treatments in Manhattan

Your skin reveals much about you – and it may present an uneven tone due to sun exposure, blemishes, or scars. Laser skin resurfacing in NYC can restore a fresh, even tone to skin on face and body, now free from hyperpigmentation and other flaws, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Excess facial hair
  • Sun damage
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Spider veins
  • Freckles
  • Age spots and sun spots
  • Rosacea
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Enlarged pores

What is the expected recovery time after laser resurfacing?

After an NYC laser skin treatment, it is normal to experience some redness, itching, and swelling. If you experience any discomfort, it is typically easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. The areas treated may appear pink or red for a period, as your skin heals and restores. Any redness can be hidden with your usual cosmetics. The entire recovery is usually accomplished within two weeks (often less depending on the treatment performed), with your skin appearing smooth, fresh, and youthful, demonstrating a significant improvement in the discolorations and texture problems you had prior to treatment.

The right laser treatment – for you

You have unique skin issues, and the most effective laser resurfacing treatment for you will be based upon a full evaluation of your skin. The beauty of laser resurfacing is that it not only leaves your skin looking youthful, fresh, and even in tone, but the results continue to improve, as the treatment triggers natural collagen regeneration and tightens existing collagen fibers. Dr. Darren Smith takes his responsibility to his patients very seriously, employing the most advanced laser skin resurfacing in NYC to produce results that last for years – and suit your skin type and tone.

Anti-aging skin treatments in New York

With modern technology, you can retain youthful, fresh, healthy skin for many years longer than was possible in the past. A combination of treatments may produce the best results. Dr. Darren Smith will carefully evaluate your skin quality, listen closely to what you envision, and create a treatment plan that achieves your vision, which may include laser resurfacing to restore even tone and texture.

Combined treatments

Laser skin resurfacing can also be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures to offer comprehensive results. Performing laser skin resurfacing with a facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty, brow lift or other procedures is another advanced aesthetic technique that Dr. Smith can use to deliver stunning results.
