There are few treatments more precise than laser facial skin resurfacing. Layer by layer, the skin on a patient’s face is treated with a specialized laser, burning off the damaged skin and leaving just enough to allow new skin cells to build a renewed surface, creating a younger, tighter, and fuller you.
Laser facial skin resurfacing involves an erbium laser or a carbon dioxide laser. These lasers use ultrapulses – short pulses of light – which vaporize the patient’s damaged layers of facial skin, while leaving the rest of the face untouched.
This leads to thorough facial resurfacing results while allowing for a quick recovery time. This non-invasive and nearly painless method can help treat warts, scars, wrinkles, and more.
Ideal candidates for laser facial skin resurfacing are those with wrinkles and fine lines around the forehead, mouth, and eyes, as well as scars caused by severe cases of acne.
Patients with very dark skin tones might not be viable candidates for skin resurfacing, as the laser will have difficulty targeting the damaged skin.
The doctor may treat a small part of your face or the whole face, depending on your needs. To help with the pain, patients will be treated with anesthesia or other numbing agents. An average procedure can last half an hour, while a procedure for the whole face can last up to two hours.
After the procedure, the treated area will be wrapped with a bandage that must be worn for at least 24 hours. Aftercare involves ointments to prevent scabs as well as regular cleaning throughout the day.
Dr. D' Alessio and her staff are top notch in every way, a rarity in medical offices. Dr. D'Alessio is truly amazing and I am more than thrilled with my experience in the office and the work she did to balance imperfections on my face. I was a long time patient and close friend of NJ's top dermatologist until he died 5 years ago, I never thought I'd find anyone as talented again. I will be using as many services as I can in this office!
Got the sculpsure procedure done today and the service was amazing! I felt very relaxed and Dr. D’ Alessio was very informative about what I should expect during the process. Anyone looking to get any of the services done here I will definitely recommend. I drove all the way from Brooklyn, NY that’s how much I recommend it!!!
I have been a patient of Dr. D'Alessio's for a year now and am very pleased with my results and her as a doctor. Dr. D'Alessio is a warm, caring, and professional doctor who goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable at your visit. Her staff is wonderful and always a pleasure to see and chat with during my visits.
