Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing in Brooklyn is a type of cosmetic procedure that will help to reduce the effects of aging and sun on the facial skin and rejuvenate your skin as well. The treatment is very effective and safe. Sometimes people will refer to laser resurfacing as a laser peel. The procedure will remove any damaged outer layers of your skin and helps to stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. The result is a healthy, youthful appearance. If you would like to discuss how laser resurfacing can help you, contact the professionals at Kleydman Dermatology today.


What is Laser Resurfacing in Brooklyn?

Laser resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that is performed to reduce the number of imperfections that appear on the surface of the skin. During the procedure, a laser is used to destruct the molecular bonds of any damaged skin cells. Once the bonds are destroyed, the skin will appear to be uniform and smoother in appearance.

Most patients will benefit from the procedure and the procedure itself is quite successful when it comes to any wrinkles, lines, and pigmentation problems present on the skin. Sometimes, this procedure is not ideal for patients with certain skin tones, skin types, and medical conditions. It is important that you speak with Dr. Kleydman to determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure. She will be able to let you know. If you are not a good candidate for the procedure, then you may be recommended for another procedure.

The Laser Resurfacing Procedure

Laser resurfacing is a procedure that is performed in your local dermatologist’s office and does not require any type of overnight stay. A local anesthetic will be applied to your face or you may receive an oral sedative to help minimize the discomfort that can be experienced. While you may receive an oral sedative, it is not always administered and you should speak with your dermatologist about it.

Once you have received the anesthesia, a laser will be used to perform the resurfacing procedure. The laser is controlled and vaporized the outer layers of your skin’s surface, which will produce a younger looking skin. Once the old layers are removed, new skin cells are then stimulated.

If you only need to receive a partial procedure, you can expect it to take anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes where a full treatment can take as long as two hours to perform.

If you have any questions about the procedure or what to expect, you will need to speak with Dr. Kleydman, who can go over the entire procedure with you.

For damaged skin, laser skin resurfacing treatments can remove years of harm in as little as one quick treatment. Patients who present acne scars, fine lines & wrinkles, irregular texture and even sun-induced blotchiness or redness can benefit from laser skin resurfacing. Traditional laser skin resurfacing treatments were often harsh, painful and required significant downtime. Recent innovations in non-ablative fractionated skin resurfacing have made these treatments quite popular, due to minimal downtime and excellent results. Treatments can be performed on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.
