Laser technology has changed the medical field drastically, offering less invasive options for altering tissue. This is true for treating certain health maladies and for cosmetic treatments. Lasers are used in cosmetic procedures for everything from hair removal to skin alterations. At City Facial Plastics in New York City, we offer laser skin resurfacing that can help improve the appearance of the skin and work as an anti-aging treatment.

Laser resurfacing is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that smooths lines and wrinkles and evens out discoloration from acne scars and sun-damaged skin. Laser resurfacing at our office can be done alone or with other facial enhancements such as facelifts, eyelid surgery, nose surgery and facial implants. Laser resurfacing uses the pulsating light of a small laser beam to create a precisely-controlled, layer-by-layer vaporization of superficial skin. The healthy new skin below is revealed by removing the outer layers of damaged skin. Following laser resurfacing, skin may be pink or red. Laser treatments are performed in-office with local anesthesia. It may take several days to one-week for damaged skin to completely flake off and for the new skin to recover.

Collagen-Inducing Laser Skin Therapy

One of the reasons laser skin resurfacing is so effective at treating aging issues is that it can help increase collagen levels. As you get older, your collagen levels decrease, and skin loses volume and elasticity. Laser therapy damages the old skin cells, helping to remove them and reveal new skin cells. As a response to the skin “injury,” more collagen is produced to heal the damage. This helps smooth lines and wrinkles and improves the overall youthfulness of the skin.

If you have blemishes, pigmentation changes or signs of aging on your facial skin, laser therapy may be the right option for you. Contact City Facial Plastics on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for a cosmetic skin consultation.

Highly recommend! Dr. Gary helped me with painful lip scar tissue after an accidental fall a year earlier. I’ve known Gary for 20 years and since the first day knowing him he’s grown as a medical professional with an innate sense of detail and kind demeanor. Excellent client follow up and post treatment care.

Dr. Gary is a fantastic NYC plastic surgeon who treats me and to whom I would recommend all my friends and family. He has a very conservative approach to fillers and I was extremely impressed with the way he filled my nasolabial lines that had been bothering me for years. It was painless, and I did not experience any bruising at all. Getting this done gave me so much confidence - I wish I worked with him years ago!
