Deep laser resurfacing

Dr. Samuels now offers CO2RE fractional laser resurfacing treatments. CO2RE precisely targets and treats superficial, middle and deep skin layers simultaneously. This allows us to provide, in a single treatment, the most appropriate procedure and maximum result for each facial area, with the least amount of downtime. C02RE Fractional Laser Resurfacing removes layers of skin tissue in a unique method that leaves the surrounding skin intact to aid in healing. It can help reduce age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, textural irregularities and dull tone and improve skin laxity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Conditions Dr. Samuels treats with deep laser resurfacing include wrinkles, epidermal nevi, acne scars, sun spots, age spots, hypertrophic or surgical scars and skin texture problems. Popular areas of treatment are the face, neck, chest and hands. 

After topically numbing and chilling the skin, layers of skin are removed to achieve the desired result in a 30-40 minute in-office treatment. Recovery varies from 5-10 days and includes redness and slight swelling, depending on peel depth. Most laser patients can be completely awake during the procedure. For patients who require a higher number of treatments, we may suggest other options such microlaser peels, Sciton BBL Hero or Sciton Halo. With these options, in-office treatment has almost replaced single-session deep-laser resurfacing as previously performed in the operating room under IV sedation. 

Prescription skin care will greatly enhance your ng-term laser results. In some cases, Dr. Samuels and her staff pre-treat the skin prior to the laser procedure. All patients are given specific post-laser skin care products at the time of scheduling, along with instructions on when to resume a long-term skin care program, which is also tailored for each patient.
