Laser Skin Resurfacing Philadelphia

What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?

Laser Skin Resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure that uses laser technology to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles, and diminish scars and pigmentation irregularities. This treatment works by stimulating collagen production and promoting the regeneration of healthy skin cells.

CO2 Laser Resurfacing

CO2 laser resurfacing is an advanced procedure that rejuvenates your skin's appearance by removing imperfections like wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. The treatment uses beams of light energy to stimulate the body's natural healing process, promoting collagen production and the growth of new, healthier skin cells. The CO2 laser emits controlled pulses of light energy that penetrate the skin's surface, removing damaged layers and revealing smoother, more youthful-looking skin underneath. Patients can expect significant improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and sun damage, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Frax 1550 Laser

The Frax 1550 laser treatment is an advanced method for improving the appearance of your skin. It works by using laser technology to penetrate deep into the layers of your skin, stimulating your body's natural healing process. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone. At the Morgenstern Center, experienced professionals use the Frax 1550 laser to give you smoother, younger-looking skin.

By creating tiny channels in your skin, the Frax 1550 laser helps to renew and regenerate your skin, leaving it looking fresher and healthier. This treatment is safe, gentle, and highly effective, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

YAG 1064

The YAG 1064 laser treatment addresses pigmentation irregularities, vascular lesions, and unwanted hair. The laser targets specific chromophores like melanin and hemoglobin, penetrating deep into the skin to break them down selectively without damaging the surrounding tissue. It also offers a long-lasting reduction in hair growth. For more information, please visit our YAG 1064 Laser Treatment procedure page.

MD Ultra Glow

MD Ultra Glow treatment is a non-invasive procedure that uses laser technology and skincare to improve skin texture and tone, reduce hyperpigmentation, and enhance your complexion. It requires minimal downtime and is suitable for all skin types.

Profound RF

Profound RF treatment is a modern skin rejuvenation technique that uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to stimulate the production of collagen, which improves the texture, tone, and laxity of the skin. This treatment targets the deeper layers of the skin by delivering precise heat energy through a specialized handheld device. As a result, it triggers the body's natural healing process, leading to the formation of new collagen and elastin fibers that make the skin look younger and firmer.

Profound RF treatment is a safe, minimally invasive option for people who want to tighten their skin without undergoing surgery, and it works well for people of all skin types. To learn more about Profound RF treatment and its effects on the skin, please visit our Profound RF Treatment procedure page.

The Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure typically begins with the application of a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. In some cases, local anesthesia or sedation may also be administered to ensure patient comfort throughout the treatment. Once the numbing agent has taken effect, the practitioner will carefully guide the laser device over the targeted areas of the skin, delivering precise pulses of laser energy to stimulate collagen production and promote skin renewal.

The length of the Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure varies depending on the size of the treatment area and the specific laser technology used. Generally, treatment sessions can range from 30 minutes to two hours, although this may vary based on the individual patient's needs and the extent of the treatment. During the procedure, patients may experience a warm sensation or mild discomfort, but the numbing agent and anesthesia help to minimize any pain or discomfort.

After the treatment is complete, patients may notice temporary redness, swelling, and mild irritation, which typically subside within a few days. Overall, Laser Skin Resurfacing at our center is performed with meticulous attention to detail and patient comfort, ensuring a safe and effective experience for all our patients.

Following Laser Skin Resurfacing, patients typically start noticing initial improvements in skin texture and tone within the first week post-treatment, with continued enhancement over several weeks as collagen production increases and new skin cells regenerate.

During the recovery period, which may last a few days to a week, patients may experience temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort akin to a sunburn. It's crucial for patients to adhere to post-treatment care instructions provided by the practitioner, including applying prescribed skincare products, avoiding sun exposure, and refraining from picking or scratching the treated area to minimize the risk of complications and optimize results. While downtime varies, most patients can resume regular activities within a short timeframe, though strenuous exercise and heat exposure should be avoided initially.

To maintain the results of Laser Skin Resurfacing, patients should follow a consistent skincare regimen, avoid factors that accelerate skin aging, and consider periodic touch-up treatments as recommended by the practitioner for long-lasting benefits.
