Of the several forms of skin resurfacing, laser skin resurfacing is one of the newest and also one of the least invasive. Dr. Scott Newman offers laser skin resurfacing in the New York City, New York area at his offices in Long Island, Westchester and New York City.
How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works
Laser skin resurfacing makes use of a laser, usually a CO2laser, to remove highly targeted, very thin layers of skin. The laser is designed to minimize heat damage to the skin. Because the laser can remove such thin skin layers, it is much less invasive than procedures such as dermabrasion, and so is suited to treat less extensive blemishes, wrinkles and other skin irregularities. Recovery time after laser skin resurfacing is only about two weeks.
An erbium laser can also be used for laser skin resurfacing. The erbium laser is even less invasive, and can often provide good results for individuals with darker skin. Recovery time for treatment with an erbium laser can be as little as one week.
Today is a week since my surgery and I just saw Dr. Newman for my second post-op visit. I am so thrilled. First of all his staff is wonderful. I am amazed at how I feel now only one week later. Dr. Newman told me that I'd be OK to return to work this past Monday only 3 days after surgery. Honestly, I didn't believe him but as it turned out he was correct. I returned on Tuesday after surgery last Friday. At this point I have almost no pain and I only have a small bruise on my left side. My result is amazing and exactly what I told him I wanted. I heard from other people how good he is and, to be honest, I'm amazed at how easy this was. Go Dr. N!!!JessieRK
The Conditions Laser Skin Resurfacing Treats
Laser skin resurfacing is effective in treating fine lines and wrinkles, mild acne scars, birthmarks and even certain types of skin cancer. Laser skin resurfacing is not recommended for severe scarring, stretch marks or active acne outbreaks. It is also not always recommended for individuals with very dark skin, as it can alter skin coloration. However, use of an erbium laser can be more successful for dark skin tones, so ask Dr. Newman about this option during your consultation if it is a concern for you.
