How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Plastic Surgery for New York City (NYC), Manhattan and all of New York (NY)

Laser skin resurfacing is a revolutionary new anti-aging technique that Dr. Lefkovits can use to improve the appearance of wrinkles, scars, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation in your skin.

Like most skin treatments, the goal of the procedure is to remove the damaged outer layer of your skin, stimulating the growth of new skin cells and producing a smoother, tighter-looking appearance overall. However, laser skin resurfacing is far more precise and less invasive than procedures like chemical peels and microdermabrasion.

Using a targeted laser, Dr. Lefkovits will remove both superficial and deep layers of your skin that have suffered damage. Today’s lasers are safer and gentler than ever before, resulting in a diminished recovery time and less complications. Bleeding, bruising, and discomfort are all greatly minimized through laser skin resurfacing.

Typically, laser skin resurfacing is performed under local anesthesia with sedation. You will still be awake during the procedure, but in a relaxed state, feeling little – if any – discomfort. Laser skin resurfacing is a quick procedure, and afterwards, you will be provided with instructions on how to best care for your new skin.
