Laser Skin Resurfacing

At Precision Aesthetics, we understand the desire to maintain youthful, radiant skin. As part of our commitment to offering the most advanced aesthetic treatments, we are proud to provide laser skin resurfacing in New York City. This is a non-surgical procedure designed to improve your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance.

Benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

This innovative treatment can address a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Sun damage
  • Uneven skin tone or texture
  • Age spots and hyperpigmentation

By choosing laser skin resurfacing, you’re investing in a solution that can dramatically improve the look and feel of your skin, enhancing your self-confidence and overall well-being.

 

What happens during the procedure?

  • During the procedure, one of our highly trained professionals will use a specialized laser device to target areas of concern precisely. You may experience a warming sensation as the laser works its magic, but rest assured that we prioritize your comfort throughout the treatment.
  • Each session typically lasts between 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area. While you may see noticeable improvements after just one treatment, we recommend a series of sessions for optimal results.

What lasers are used for laser skin resurfacing treatments?

  • FRAXEL REPAIR LASER

    This laser is highly regarded for wrinkle removal, treatment of crow’s feet, sun damage removal, and overall skin rejuvenation.

  • INTENSE PULSED LIGHT (IPL) THERAPY

    While not a laser, IPL therapy is often used for similar purposes as laser treatments. It can address various skin concerns such as pigmentation, redness, and uneven skin tone.

  • PULSED-DYE LASER

    This type of laser is used for treating rosacea, broken capillaries, and other vascular skin conditions.

What is the recovery for laser skin resurfacing?

Post-treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and swelling, which should subside within a few days. We’ll provide detailed aftercare instructions to help speed up the healing process and maximize your results.

Protecting your fresh, new skin from the sun is crucial, so we advise wearing a high-SPF sunscreen and avoiding direct sunlight for a few weeks post-treatment.

What treatments can be combined with laser skin resurfacing for best results?

Precision Aesthetics employs various state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the results of our laser skin resurfacing in NYC. Some of these devices and treatments include:

  • THERMAGE

    This non-surgical facelift technology uses radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.

  • EMFACE

    The only FDA-approved device that combines radiofrequency and muscle stimulation for a non-surgical facelift.

Using these devices in combination with laser skin resurfacing can help optimize results, addressing a broader range of skin concerns and providing patients with a more comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation. The specific combination of treatments will depend on individual patient needs and desired outcomes. It’s essential to have a consultation with a professional at Precision Aesthetics to determine the best treatment plan for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

While the procedure can cause some discomfort, a topical anesthetic is often applied to the skin prior to treatment to minimize any pain.

Side effects may include redness, swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area. These are typically temporary and subside within a few days. In rare cases, changes in skin color may occur.

You should wait until your skin has fully healed before applying makeup, which is usually about one week after the procedure. Applying makeup too soon can lead to infection or irritation.

The number of sessions needed varies depending on the individual’s skin condition and desired results. Typically, 1-3 treatments are recommended, spaced several weeks apart.

Laser skin resurfacing is safest for fair complected individuals with no suntan. Performing laser skin resurfacing on tanned individuals can risk the formation of post-procedural hyperpigmentation (dark spots) as an unwanted side-effect of the heat generated by the laser. Dr. Zdinak prefers micro-needling with collagen-depth needles as a better alternative for her patients than laser skin resurfacing because it is safe for all skin-types.

Results can vary greatly from person to person, but the improvements from laser skin resurfacing can last for years. Maintaining a proper skincare routine can help extend the results.
