To improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots, and aging and sun-damaged skin, Dr. Richard D'Amico offers laser skin treatment here in New Jersey. Laser resurfacing works by removing dead and damaged layers of skin cells on the skin's surface to reveal fresher and more youthful skin beneath. This method of skin rejuvenation is more comfortable than prior skin resurfacing technologies, and the laser gives Dr. D'Amico greater control over the depth of penetration of the skin's surface for increased patient safety.
How It's Done
There are 3 ways to resurface damaged skin:
1.Physical abrasion: dermabrasion
2. Chemicals to peel away the outer layer
3. Laser to peel the outer layer away with energy
When it comes to laser skin resurfacing here in New Jersey, there are many options: full CO2, fractional CO2, Erbium and IPL
Fractionating is where instead of the beam covering a full continuous segment of skin, it comes in little areas where some areas are not treated. Fractionating blocks the light in certain spots, so it hits a fraction of the area that's exposed. Recovery is 4-5 days while still achieving a high quality result. It's not quite as effective as the full CO2 but recovery time is considerably shortened, and results compare very favorably to light-based therapies which are much less effective. This exciting new technology is literally changing the face of laser skin resurfacing.
Full CO2 requires anesthesia.
