What Can Lasers Do For You?

The Fractional C02 lasers are powerful, ablative lasers used for skin resurfacing.  C02 lasers improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines and deep wrinkles, acne scars, and sunspots.  Fractional C02 lasers work by creating tiny holes in the skin.  The skin responds by rapid healing and peeling of old damaged cells to reveal new healthy skin.  The depth of tissue that this laser reaches results in significant crusting, scaling, and peeling; and a longer recovery time.  In many patients, these lasers are preferred for sun damaged skin, wrinkles, and improving the overall skin texture. C02 lasers provide incredible results with only one treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing with the CO2 or erbium lasers involves the removal of a layer of skin so that the new skin can flourish and fill in the wrinkles and crevices. The laser vaporizes the old wrinkled, sun damaged and scarred skin which initiates a cascade for new skin formation. The new skin is healthier with less visible lines, wrinkles, sun damage and scars.
Laser skin resurfacing with the CO2 laser remains the gold standard for reversing the signs of aging associated with wrinkled skin. The CO2 laser also causes dramatic tightening of the skin.

Be Sure to Get Treated by a Highly Trained Professional

There are many laser resurfacing options out there today, so it’s important to emphasize that the quality of the practitioner is exceptionally important. Laser treatments are only as effective as the medical professional in control. In many cases, patients seek out a “budget” solution, and then have to pay more to get poor results corrected. Getting excellent results with a laser system is quite common, but you must seek out a highly respected surgeon such as Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, who offers Fraxel in Garden City and Manhattan.

Treating Moderate to Severe Wrinkles

For patients who do have severe wrinkles, and are not smokers or are able to stop smoking, this procedure remains the treatment of choice. A one pass laser resurfacing procedure has one week down time and multiple pass CO2 laser procedure has two weeks down time. Treatment of wrinkles with the CO2 laser is limited to the face. Dr. Rokhsar has been trained by the inventor of the CO2 laser resurfacing procedure and has extensive experience in laser resurfacing. For those individuals who do not have the 1-2 weeks down time or who wish to resurface other skin areas, the laser of choice remains the Fraxel laser. Dr. Rokhsar is considered an international authority with laser resurfacing and has spoken on this subject all around the globe.

The following conditions can be safely and effectively be treated with laser resurfacing procedures: Wrinkles, deep lines, fine lines, poor skin tone and texture, large pores, acne and surgical scars, uneven pigmentation, melasma, stretch marks and pearly penile papules. Dr. Rokhsar, will tell you which laser is best for you during your consultation.

Fractional Resurfacing for Acne Scars

Acne is the most common skin disorder affecting adolescents and young adults.  In fact, 85 percent of all teenagers have had some degree of acne, most commonly a very mild form. It may seem incredibly difficult to have patience when you start your treatment for acne. However, keep in mind that if you stick closely to your individualized treatment plan, you will see results. When dealing with severe acne, even though there is healing, the patient is always left with scarring.

Fractional C02 lasers are used to resurface skin that has been damaged by acne scars, age, and sun exposure.  The laser beams stimulate the skin to produce more collagen, a protein found in abundance in young skin.  These lasers are used to improve uneven skin tone, smooth scars, improve elasticity, and erase wrinkles. These lasers target and remove damaged areas of skin on a microscopic level by creating controlled ‘holes’ of damage. This damage stimulates the damaged or scarred areas of skin to heal more rapidly; replacing the damaged, aged, scarred areas with fresh skin.  These lasers are more powerful than Fraxel lasers because they create more damage. Fractional C02 lasers provide incredibly dramatic results with few treatments.

You will begin to see results about one week post-treatment.  Results are cumulative and take about six months to see peak improvement.  Your skin will gradually get better and better as the skin regenerates from the inside out.  These lasers are safe and effective on all skin types, including African-American, Indian, Asian, and Mediterranean.
