One of the most effective non-surgical facial treatments for improving skin tone and elasticity is laser skin resurfacing. There are a variety of laser treatments that can be used on the skin to reduce pigmentation and help increase collagen production. Joshua D. Rosenberg, MD, recommends laser treatments for his patients looking for minimally-invasive options to improve the skin’s appearance at his offices in Staten Island and NYC.

Lasers have been used in the medical field for decades to alter tissue cells. The technology uses light energy to interact with tissue in targeted, specific applications. For the skin, light energy or heat created by the light emissions can target darker pigmented cells to fade scars or other skin flaws. Other lasers work to stimulate collagen production to help rejuvenate aging skin. Dr. Rosenberg can determine if laser resurfacing is the right option for his patients to give them the results they desire.

Minimally-Invasive Laser Skin Treatments

Laser skin resurfacing can be applied to specific areas to target skin flaws or used over a large area for overall rejuvenation. The treatment usually takes one to two hours, depending on the size of the area treated. Most laser treatments are not painful. For deeper laser treatments, a numbing agent or local anesthesia can be used to minimize any discomfort. The skin may be red or flaky after the treatment for a few days, depending on the type of laser treatment used.

One of the popular laser treatments is fractionated carbon dioxide laser skin resurfacing (FXCO2), which can be used to treat:

  • Large pores
  • Wrinkles and lines
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Pigmentation issues or flaws
  • Lost elasticity

After FXCO2 treatments, the skin will heal over the next week and the revitalized skin will begin to surface. Darker pigmented skin cells will fade or flake away, and the skin will begin improving as collagen levels increase over the following weeks.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
