What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is an anti-aging treatment that focuses on superficial flaws that give your skin a tired, aged appearance, such as age spots, dull skin, fine lines, and light wrinkles. The treatment works by removing the damaged skin to reveal younger, softer skin.

What Are the Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing enhances the health of the skin and can be used to reduce the appearance of the following:
- Fine lines
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Other types of lesions
- Uneven tone/texture
How Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
Treatment can be performed either in Dr. Mozaffari’s office, or in an outpatient surgical setting, depending on the course of anesthesia used, and the intensity of treatment selected by the patient. The procedure itself lasts about one hour, after which the patient can return home.
Making a pattern of tiny randomly spaced wounds surrounded by healthy skin (“fractionation”) prompts the body’s rapid healing process. It also triggers the body’s production of collagen and elastin; these proteins are essential to firm, elastic, and healthy-looking skin. The regeneration of collagen and elastin ensures long-term results.
What Is the Lumenis® ResurFX™?
The Lumenis® ResurFX™ is the system that we use for our laser resurfacing treatments. The flexibility of the system allows us to treat a range of skin issues on the face.
What Results Can I Expect From Laser Skin Resurfacing?
After recovery from treatment, the skin is more even in tone and texture. Wrinkles and lines look smoother, and areas of pigmentation are less distinct. Depending on the specific areas of focus, the skin around the jawline, mouth, nose or eyebrows looks tighter. Laser skin resurfacing won’t stop the aging process, but it can turn back the clock five or more years. Most patients do experience redness for six weeks after deep treatment.
Can Laser Skin Resurfacing Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on its own, or as part of a comprehensive treatment plan that includes other non-surgical or surgical procedures. For example, Dr. Mozaffari might recommend treatment with Botox®, Dysport®, or dermal filler products for further age-defying results, along with facial surgery.
