Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser therapy is one of the most exciting treatments for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. Today’s sophisticated laser technology allows us to achieve excellent, consistent results, without the risk and extended downtime.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser energy can be used to target both damaged skin at the surface, as well as aging collagen in the deeper layers of skin. The effect of this treatment is two-fold: first, you’ll see an immediate improvement in skin texture at the superficial level. As the skin heals, the treated area will be resurfaced with the growth of new, fresh skin cells, resulting in smoother, healthier-looking skin. Second, the laser energy also works to improve skin beneath the surface by stimulating the body’s natural healing mechanisms and encouraging the production of new collagen and elastin in the coming months.* Found in abundance in young, healthy skin, collagen and elastin provide natural skin firmness and elasticity.

Laser skin resurfacing can improve skin texture and tone, reduce wrinkles and acne scarring, and promote healthier-looking, more vibrant skin.This treatment is excellent for acne scarring as well as sun damaged or aged wrinkled skin. The laser vaporizes the damaged skin and commences the regeneration of fresh skin during the natural healing process. The thermal heating of the deep tissue stimulates new skin growth, promoting a healthy new collagen growth. This is usually accompanied by a week of healing time.

Can laser skin resurfacing be combined with other procedures?

Absolutely.  With a full range of state-of-the-art laser technology at his fingertips, Dr. Robinson can recommend the best treatment or combination of treatments to meet your skin rejuvenation needs.  Our HydraFacial MD signature treatment — is a godsend one - two weeks post Fraxel speeds up the shedding process that re-surfacing procedures inevitably induce while deeply hydrating the skin. Once healing is done, it is important to stay out of the sun as much as possible in order to maintain the results. The use of sunscreens, Retinol and skin brightening products will help keep hyperpigmentation at bay. In addition, Dr. Robinson often combines laser rejuvenation with BOTOX® injections and various fillers for maximum cosmetic improvement.

Patients may also take advantage of the unique arsenal of State of the Art Lasers @ The Dermatology Practice of Bruce P. Robinson of NYC.  This allows us to combine laser treatments and surgical procedures for the most outstanding results, while minimizing patient discomfort and downtime.  For example, patients may choose full facial resurfacing together with Warm Body Contouring.
