Laser Skin Resurfacing NYC | Douglas Senderoff MD, FACS


Non-surgical laser skin resurfacing is most commonly performed to minimize the appearance of fine lines, especially around the mouth and the eyes. However, laser skin resurfacing is also effective in treating facial scars (acne scars, surgical scars, or superficial scars) or areas of uneven pigmentation. Laser resurfacing may be performed on the whole face or in specific regions. Laser skin resurfacing is most commonly performed with Alma Lasers.

  • Laser resurfacing can often make patients look 10 to 20 years younger, and the results can last for eight to 10 years.
  • Oftentimes, the laser skin resurfacing procedure is performed in conjunction with another cosmetic or plastic surgery operation, such as a facelift or eyelid surgery.

Laser skin rejuvenation is a popular procedure because it is a safe and very effective outpatient procedure. There is little downtime with this procedure. Laser skin resurfacing results in smoother, younger, unblemished, healthy skin. The results from laser skin resurfacing are dramatic.

Laser skin resurfacing is appropriate for patients who want to diminish discoloration, wrinkles, sun damage, acne marks, or other types of scarring including acne scarring and /or surgical scarring. Laser skin resurfacing can also effectively treat skin that is uneven in color or texture. Still, those with severe scarring may need to use additional scar revision techniques in order to achieve the best results possible.

The best candidates for laser skin rejuvenation are those who have realistic expectations and who discuss their questions and concerns with the physician beforehand. An initial complimentary consultation at our NYC facility can help to ensure optimal laser skin resurfacing results are achieved. Both men and women have had exceptional results from this procedure.

Skin resurfacing works by targeting the surface layer of the skin, vaporizing water and the skin’s surface without affecting deeper layers. A new surface layer will then grow back – a layer that is soft, wrinkle-free, and significantly younger-looking. The heat generated during the laser skin resurfacing process also shortens the collagen fibers in the skin, which restores much of the skin’s elasticity.

Who Is a Good Candidate For Laser Resurfacing? If you have fine lines or wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, or on the forehead, a few scars from acne (or any superficial scars on the face), or non-responsive skin after a facelift, then you may be an ideal candidate for laser skin resurfacing.
