Which Laser is the Best for Dark Skin?

Skin discoloration is a common skin problem encountered by people of all ages. It can be caused by sun exposure, aging, surgical procedures or other dermatological issues. While in some cases it is possible to use make-up or other topical treatments to reduce the discoloration, oftentimes these options offer short-term relief.

In the past, clients who wanted to enjoy flawless, make-up free skin needed to undergo more intensive and invasive treatments. However, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar has helped develop a breakthrough procedure, the Fraxel Restore Dual, that is designed to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration and minimize the effects of aging.

As one of New York City’s most trusted cosmetic, skin and laser surgery experts, Dr. Rokhsar is at the forefront of developing new techniques for his clients. In fact, he was part of the team that put Fraxel technology to the test. With over 50 peer-reviewed studies, 35,000 histological studies and an amazing 500,000 successful procedures, Fraxel Restore Dual has become one of the most reliable treatments for:

Fraxel Restore Dual is a quick, non-invasive procedure that uses advanced laser technology to improve the skin’s texture and tone. Dr. Rokhsar’s extensive experience with Fraxel is the reason why he is the most sought after laser practitioner in NYC and Long Island. Most clients are surprised that Dr. Rokhsar performs every Fraxel procedure despite his busy schedule. This is because he wants to ensure that all clients get the best out of their Fraxel Restore Dual procedure.

How does Fraxel Restore Dual Work?

Fraxel Restore Dual works by employing a two-wave system that penetrates both superficial and deep tissue layers at the same time. This dual layer system is the reason why this treatment is effective in just a few short minutes!

What is it like having Fraxel Restore Dual done?

At your initial appointment Dr. Rokhsar will carefully plan your treatment and inform you of everything you need to know about the experience. As we’ve mentioned before, this is a quick and safe procedure that is performed in one of Dr. Rokhsar’s state of the art New York clinics. After a local anesthetic has been applied, the laser treatment begins. Dr. Rokhsar will then complete the procedure in about 15 minutes.

What happens after the procedure?

There is no downtime after your Fraxel Restore Dual treatment. Some clients report experiencing minor redness and swelling in the treated area, though these are expected temporary side effects. Dr. Rokhsar’s team will help you manage any after-treatment discomforts you may feel. You will need to keep the area moisturized and protected with sunscreen especially in the days following your procedure.

If you would like to get rid of your skin discoloration quickly and effectively, be sure to make an appointment with Dr. Cameron Rokhsar at one of the New York Cosmetic, Skin and Laser Surgery Center offices today!
