While it is still considered a relatively new type of procedure, laser resurfacing has been proven effective at removing damaged skin, giving patients younger and more vibrant looking skin. Dr. Kaplan utilizes the best technology and combines it with masterful skill and years of experience to help his patients look and feel years younger. The precision of the tool necessitates an artistic hand and Dr. Kaplan has a proven record of success.
What Is Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing is a technique used to make delicate and subtle changes to the skin in order to give it a healthier appearance. It uses short, concentrated bursts of light to peel away skin, layer by layer. This allows a surgeon to target a more specific area or delicate areas, without damaging healthy skin. As new skin is exposed, cell growth is stimulated resulting in smoother, more elastic skin.
Laser resurfacing can be used to treat many kinds of skin problems including:
- Sun damage
- Liver spots
- Acne marks
- Enlarged oil glands
- Non-responsive skin following a facelift
Why a laser?
Laser rejuvenation is very appealing because it is a comparatively noninvasive way of refreshing the surface of the skin. Natural aging and factors such as sun damage and smoking contribute to the breakdown of the skin’s collagen and elastin fibers. This causes the once-smooth surface to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and pre-cancerous actinic (sun) damage. Laser rejuvenation can remove 10 to 20 years’ worth of sun damage, lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. It also appears more natural than other procedures and can also stimulate growth of newer, healthy skin.
The Laser Difference
Not all surgical lasers are created equal. Dr. Kaplan utilizes the SilkTouch CO2 laser, the Cortex CO2, as well as erbium lasers to remove sun damage and rejuvenate the face, neck, chest, arms and hands. There are many lasers on the market. Dr. Kaplan has tried them all and has learned through experience how to obtain the best possible results for his patients.
Artful Facial Rejuvenation
Dr. Kaplan gently and precisely removes the damaged upper layers of skin utilizing the laser like an artist’s brush, tailoring the skin rejuvenation procedure to your individual needs. The surface of the skin can be “freshened” to reveal the new skin underneath. The procedure can also stimulate skin renewal for a softer, silkier, and smoother appearance. Even delicate areas on the lips and around the eyes can be rejuvenated safely.
In addition to facial resurfacing, Dr. Kaplan has utilized the SilkTouch after a mini face lift or eyelid surgery to smooth out fine lines that remain. Laser rejuvenation with the SilkTouch CO2 laser and Dr. Kaplan’s artistic touch will leave your skin revitalized, fresh and transformed. If you are dissatisfied with the results delivered by another surgeon, Dr. Kaplan can help.
