Laser Skin Resurfacing
Skin is probably the most aesthetically important part of the body. Due to aging, sun exposure and other factors, the skin begins to lose its natural elasticity and suppleness. Wrinkles, fine lines, creases and sagging skin may show up, which can make a person look older and less attractive. Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most effective non-surgical ways to enhance the condition of skin and rejuvenate it.
An experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Nicholas Vendemia provides state of the art laser based skin resurfacing solutions to his patients in New York City and surrounding areas. Dr. Vendemia is well-known in Manhattan, NYC for plastic surgery procedures ranging from rhinoplasty to breast augmentation. For patients who are keen to avoid cosmetic surgery, he offers customized non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments such as laser skin resurfacing.
What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Skin resurfacing technique essentially involves gentle removal of the topmost layer of the skin that may have wilted due to dead cells. Instead of removing this top layer of dead cells using plastic surgery techniques, it is possible for a cosmetic surgeon to employ advanced laser technologies and achieve the same outcome without using the scalpel.
The removal of the rough and blemished top layer of the skin paves way for the emergence of fresh, rejuvenated skin. It gives a more youthful and smoother looking appearance to the patient. As a plastic surgeon and laser expert, Dr. Vendemia provides customized LiteTouch Laser Skin Resurfacing procedure to his patients in and around New York City.
LiteTouch Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure
Dr. Vendemia provides the unique LiteTouch Laser Resurfacing package at his practice in Manhattan, NYC. The technique is designed to use three laser wavelengths instead of the typical single wavelength to achieve outcomes that go deeper than just the top layer of the skin. The first stage of the procedure involves the application of Optimized Pulsed Light (OPL), which is very effective in removing brown spots, red spots, signs of sun damage, broken capillaries, hemangiomas, telangiectasis, and melasma. The focus is primarily on the face, neck and chest.
The second stage of the procedure involves an application of a patented mid-range fractional laser treatment. This moderate treatment helps tighten the loose skin around the eyes, jowls, jaw line, neck, knees, and elbows. The technique is designed to achieve deeper skin penetration with lasers, without harming the healthy surrounding tissue. The mid-range wavelength laser can penetrate deeper than other technologies. The goal is to heat up the deepest targeted layers of skin and stimulate collagen production. New collagen causes smoother, tighter skin to appear over a period of three to four weeks.
The final stage in the procedure is the application of fractional ablative resurfacing laser to restore smooth, vibrant and youthful looking skin. It erases the typical signs of aging such as wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, mouth and other targeted areas of the face. Compared to traditional laser treatments, LiteTouch Laser Skin Resurfacing achieves more effective and longer lasting results.
