What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical treatment that uses pulsating beams of light to remove damaged skin cells. New tissue forms as the skin heals, allowing for a healthier dermal layer to grow. The results provide a tighter, smoother aesthetic. It can be performed alone or combined with another cosmetic treatment to provide even more dramatic results.
How is laser skin resurfacing performed?
Laser skin resurfacing is performed on-site at Dr. Padma's Aesthetics in Castleton, NY. On the day of your appointment, we’ll escort you to one of our private med spa rooms and have you sit in a comfortable treatment chair. The target area will be gently cleansed and prepped with a topical anesthetic. The laser handpiece will then be glided over the target zone to remove dead and damaged skin cells. This prompts the skin’s natural rejuvenation process and new collagen production for softer, healthier skin.

Who can benefit from laser skin resurfacing?
Women and men of varying ages can greatly benefit from laser skin resurfacing treatments, especially those in their mid-thirties and early forties. With advanced age, the skin begins to lose collagen, starts to sag, and acquires other cosmetic issues from years of natural wear and tear. During your initial consultation with Dr. Padma, she can assess your concerns and determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you.
What to expect after laser skin resurfacing?
After laser skin resurfacing, you can expect to experience some redness, swelling, and mild irritation. These side effects are normal and usually go away on their own within a few days. Over-the-counter medicine can also be used to boost your comfort and ease inflammation. After a day or two, the treated skin will begin to peel. This is the start of the skin’s natural rejuvenation process. After a few days, the area will heal, forming a new tissue layer that is brighter, smoother, and more youthful-looking.
