Read on to learn more about laser skin resurfacing and why who performs your treatment matters.
What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing repairs damaged skin, minimizing the appearance of scars and other blemishes while smoothing away wrinkles to give you firmer, clearer skin. It’s an effective, nonsurgical option for turning back the clock, helping you look as young as you feel.
At Manhattan Dermatology, we offer a variety of laser resurfacing treatments, including fractional and full laser technology. We work with you to understand your skin goals, health history, and lifestyle needs before recommending a course of treatment.
Laser resurfacing options include:
- Fraxel® dual fractional laser for naturally younger-looking skin
- Sciton® Contour TRL™ for deep resurfacing and hard-to-treat areas, especially around your mouth and eyes
- Clear + Brilliant® fractional laser for improved skin tone and texture, and the reduction of fine lines
- Clear + Brilliant Perméa® for improved tone and texture, and reduction of wrinkles with the added power of topical solutions
Each option offers different advantages. Some are better at targeted treatment while others provide an overall youthful effect. We take into account your skin condition and goals before designing a treatment plan.
Why does who performs my laser resurfacing matter?
While many care providers may use the same technology, your results from laser skin resurfacing treatments are technique-specific. In other words, not all care providers have the requisite training, experience, and knowledge to provide optimal results.
When performed by a highly trained, knowledgeable professional, like our team at Manhattan Dermatology, laser resurfacing is a safe, effective method to significantly affect your skin’s appearance. But when performed by someone without the experience and knowledge necessary, your treatment may not be effective — and could even damage your skin.
If you’re considering laser skin resurfacing, choose a provider based on training, qualifications, and experience. It may be tempting to base your pick on who is offering a special deal or sale, but this could be a costly mistake.
Am I a candidate for laser skin resurfacing?
Most healthy people are good candidates for laser skin resurfacing, but because everyone is different, it’s important to meet with a board-certified skin specialist to address your unique skin concerns and review any medical history.
