Laser Resurfacing Q & A

What is laser resurfacing?

Laser peels and skin resurfacing provide unparallelled wrinkle reduction, improved skin tone and texture, and a minimized appearance of acne scarring without surgery. Laser resurfacing removes the outer, unhealthier layer (or a few layers) of skin to reveal younger-looking skin below.

The doctors at Manhattan Dermatology offer a wide range of laser resurfacing treatments, including full and fractional laser resurfacing using state-of-the-art technology like:

  • Fraxel® Dual fractional laser for a naturally younger-looking appearance
  • Sciton® Contour TRL™ for deep resurfacing and hard-to-treat areas around your mouth and eyes
  • Clear + Brilliant® fractional laser for fine lines, and improved tone and texture
  • Clear + Brilliant Perméa® for improved tone and texture plus the added benefits of topical solutions


During your skin care consultation, your dermatologist recommends the treatments that fit into your schedule, lifestyle, and that can best help you achieve your aesthetic and skin health goals.

What conditions can laser resurfacing treat?

With the advanced laser resurfacing systems the doctors offer, you can improve numerous skin conditions, including:

  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Acne scars, surgical scars, and scars from injuries
  • Irregular pigmentation and dark spots
  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Rough skin texture


Laser skin resurfacing treatments give your face a rejuvenated, fresh appearance that’s long-lasting. Some lasers require a recovery period after the outer layers of skin are peeled away, while the fractional lasers offer a gentler treatment method with less downtime. All of the treatments the doctors offer deliver the benefit of younger-looking skin.

How many laser resurfacing sessions will I need before I see results?

Depending on your personal goals, your individual skin condition, and the type of laser your dermatologist uses for your resurfacing treatments, you may see noticeable results after the first appointment. Fractional laser treatments typically work best after a series of treatments, but your doctor creates a plan that safely and effectively delivers the results you desire.

A series of treatments delivers the longest-lasting, most spectacular results for men and women who want to maintain their younger-looking, smooth skin.

If you’re ready to improve your skin’s tone and texture, and even out areas of irregular pigment, laser resurfacing can help you achieve your goals for an enhanced appearance.
