LASER SKIN RESURFACING NYC
Laser skin resurfacing in NYC can treat acne scars, blotches, wrinkles, blemishes, fine lines, and more. Dermatology, Laser & Surgery of Carnegie Hill provides laser resurfacing treatments for the face, neck, and body. Our lasers include the most state-of-the-art, modern technology to smooth, tighten, tone, and lift the face and neck, as well as slim, contour, and tighten the body. Laser skin resurfacing removes the skin, layer by layer, to reveal new skin which is tighter, firmer, and younger-looking. Our dermatology team can help you improve your skin texture and complexion with laser skin resurfacing.
HOW DOES LASER SKIN RESURFACING WORK?
The goal of laser resurfacing is to boost collagen production in the dermis (the deep layers of skin where collagen and elastin reside) without creating too much visible damage on the epidermis (the exposed, outer layer of skin). Exposing the skin to heat via lasers is the best way to jumpstart collagen building. Heat in the skin stimulates cells called fibroblasts, which generate new collagen fibers. The result is a thickening of the dermis which leads to plumper, more youthful-looking skin.*
WHO SHOULD UNDERGO LASER SKIN RESURFACING?
People of all skin colors and skin types are candidates for laser resurfacing. It is a misconception that lasers are only for lighter skin tones. Our dermatologists know which lasers work best for each skin type and tone. Skin rejuvenation treatments can:
- Remove fine lines and wrinkles
- Remove crow’s feet
- Remove acne scars
- Reduce the size of oil glands
- Remove age spots
- Remove warts
- Reduce uneven skin tone
- Remove sunspots
- Increase tone in face and neck
- Stimulate collagen
- Regenerate elastin
- Improve sun-damaged skin
- Reduce sagging skin
- Reveal a smoother, clearer complexion
WHAT LASERS DO YOU USE FOR LASER SKIN RESURFACING IN NYC?
Our dermatology providers utilize the M22™ — a multi-application modular platform which features:
- Multi-Spot™ Nd:YAG
- Q-Switched Nd:YAG
ResurFX™ is a non-ablative laser that stimulates the skin to develop new collagen. Unlike other fractional technologies, ResurFX™ needs only one treatment to achieve the desired results. ResurFX™ treats fine lines, wrinkles, skin pigmentation, uneven skin tone, stretch marks, and acne scars. The ResurFX™ laser is equipped with continuous contact cooling, so the patient is comfortable during treatment. This laser skin resurfacing method can achieve results without the typical downtime associated with lasers such as the CO2 or ProFractional laser.*
Universal IPL incorporates Optimal Pulse Technology (OPT) to improve your complexion. OPT uses light energy to provide medical-grade intense pulse light (IPL) to the treatment area. IPL primarily targets color abnormalities like brown and red spots.*
Multi-Spot™ Nd:YAG can target vascular lesions and unwanted vein patterns using Multiple Sequential Pulsing (MSP). This device can target all complexions and skin types to deliver long-lasting skin rejuvenation results.*
Q-Switched Nd:YAG is the laser of choice for most tattoo removal specialists. The Q-Switched Nd:YAG laser is an excellent choice for tattoo removal because the wavelength of light that is produced is absorbed well by black tattoos and all other tattoo colors. This laser offers two wavelengths of light, one at 532nm and one at 1064nm. The longer length removes darker colors and the shorter length is effective on red, pink, orange, and other bright colors. Together the two wavelengths can treat the full spectrum of colors for comprehensive tattoo removal.*
HOW MUCH DOES LASER SKIN RESURFACING COST?
Laser skin resurfacing is typically considered a cosmetic procedure, which is not covered by insurance companies. Your overall cost will depend on how many sessions you will need and how many areas are being treated. You may need multiple sessions of laser resurfacing until you achieve your desired result. You should ask for specific details during your skin rejuvenation consultation at our NYC office.
