Laser Resurfacing

At Skin Experts, our team, led by Dr Touma, a laser surgeon and reference in the field, uses lasers to treat many difficult conditions precisely and safely. Our advanced experience with lasers allows us to go farther than most laser users, and is one of the skills that separate us from general dermatologists. Just like a paint brush, we use different lasers to remove red vessels and pigment or resurface skin, no matter how delicate the area, or the age of the patient is. Common conditions like acne, dark circles, eyelids wrinkles are some of the difficult conditions we regularly treat with laser.

Laser resurfacing removes the damaged top layer of the skin and stimulates collagen synthesis to reveal a healthier-looking shining skin. There are two basic types of laser resurfacing: ablative and non-ablative.

Ablative

Ablative laser resurfacing is done to precisely reverse sun damaged skin, remove deep scars from surgery, accidents or acne, or to reduce deep lines, especially around the eyelids and mouth. The laser is performed with topical anesthesia, and is followed by some redness, bruising and swelling for 3-5 days. The results are more dramatic than the non-ablative laser or any chemical peel, and because of the deeper penetration there is dramatic firming of the skin in addition to the impressive surface improvement.

Non-Ablative

These lasers are preferred for its no-down-time, firming of fine wrinkles, skin laxity, stretch marks, pores, and treating soft acne scars. The laser emits an intense beam of light to heat the underlying dermal layer of the skin without directly affecting the top epidermis layer of the skin. The treated area may be red for 1-2 hours and needs to be protected from sun for a few days. The outcome is new production of collagen, the matrix of the skin, and improvement of the skin texture and fine lines and the rolling scars of acne. Using the appropriate lasers, we have also been able to achieve dramatic results for laxity, stretch marks and loose skin of the abdomen. Our favorite area to treat is the eyelids, that often show significant tightening in a single session.

We recommend a series of 3-4 treatments of 2-4 week intervals in order to obtain the desired result. Patients are asked to refrain from smoking, follow high protein diet, and apply a vitamin C serum. All skin types including patients with dark skin can be treated with this modality.
