Benefits of Fractional Laser Skin Treatments
SmartSkin treatments are safe and effective for most parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. Dr. Sorokin customizes this laser skin resurfacing treatment in his New Jersey practice for each patient's individual skin concerns and goals. SmartSkin is especially effective for:
- Softening lines, creases, and wrinkles
- Improving uneven pigmentation, age spots, freckles, sun spots, and melasma
- Providing effective skin resurfacing
- Restoring youthful skin tone through increased collagen production
- Shrinking enlarged pores
- Erasing scars from surgery, acne, chicken pox, as well as stretch marks
Many patients choose complementary procedures to complement their fractional laser treatments, such as one of our many medical spa services. Also, many people who visit us for plastic surgery from Philadelphia and throughout New Jersey choose SmartSkin to enhance their results. Be sure to ask during your consultation about our wide range of treatments for beautiful, youthful skin.
To help pinpoint fine wrinkles, discolorations, and enlarged pores, Dr. Sorokin uses the VISIA® Complexion Analysis system, which takes an image of your face and analyzes where skin problems like wrinkles, discolorations, and even bacteria occur. Using this advanced technology, Dr. Sorokin can customize your skin care treatment plan to meet your needs.
The Fractional Laser Skin Rejuvenation Procedure
The SmartSkin laser treats a fraction of the skin surface with tiny, pinpoint columns of laser energy. This technology does not impact adjacent areas, resulting in a faster recovery period and shorter recovery time.
While most people experience only slight discomfort during these treatments, a topical anesthetic is available if you have any concerns. The length of treatment depends on the conditions and areas being addressed. For example, Dr. Sorokin can usually treat the entire face in about 15 to 20 minutes.
During your consultation, Dr. Sorokin will help you decide how many treatments you will need to achieve the improvements you want. If you are concerned about downtime, you will probably want to have a few, gentler treatments. If you want the greatest improvements as soon as possible, you might choose a single, stronger treatment that will require longer downtime.
By consulting with us about the best professional skin care products for you, your improvements can last for years.
Recovery Following Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
You will be able to drive yourself home after your fractional laser skin treatment. Expect your skin to feel warm, and look slightly puffy and mildly sunburned for the first few days. Depending on the level of your treatment, you should be able to return to your routine within 2 to 7 days. Your improvements will be most noticeable after your skin has renewed itself and collagen production has increased, which can take several weeks to occur.
