About Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Dr. Lawrence Bass at Bass Plastic Surgery, PLLC offers his New York, NY patients many options when it comes to restoring their skin for a more youthful look. In addition to ablative laser skin resurfacing procedures, he also makes available nonablative lasers, like the fractional laser Fraxel Re:Store. This method does not vaporize the skin, but instead creates tiny columns of coagulated tissue that leaves an intact skin surface and less recovery than traditional laser resurfacing or even fractional abaltive laser resurfacing.  Laser skin rejuvenation replaces or “resurfaces” the columns of skin invisibly over a few weeks, allowing it to grow back stronger and healthier for treatment of a wide variety of complexion issues.  Some of the issues this treatment can address are texture irregularities, acne, minor wrinkles, and pigment irregularity.  Another approach uses the PicoSure laser with the microfocused array to create spots of shearing between the epidermis and dermis to stimulate collagen synthesis and rejuvenation of the skin.  Dr. Bass can discuss with each patient in detail the full benefits and help them decide which treatment is the best option for their needs. 

Best Candidates

The best candidates for a nonablative laser skin rejuvenating treatment will have:

  • Minor degrees of skin changes such as acne, rough texture, dull skin, mild wrinkles, and pigment irregularity
  • A desire to minimize recovery time
  • A desire for natural-looking, smoother skin
  • Realistic expectations for their treatment

What to Expect

Patients will receive their laser skin rejuvenating treatment onsite in our office.  After a numbing gel is applied to the skin, a fractional, nonablative laser will be passed over the facial skin to promote healing and collagen production.  Sometimes oral medication or inhaled nitrous oxide and oxygen (ProNox) are given to minimize discomfort.  This is a short, outpatient treatment though some redness and swelling may occur the first few days following the session. 

Anticipated Results

The results will vary depending on the patient's condition, but after a series of sessions, they should notice visibly brighter, clearer, and smoother skin. Results will be gradual and usually are not visible right away. The improved skin can be long lasting, with certain cases showing clearer skin for years to come, though maintenance treatments may be needed yearly.
