Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is the latest innovation in facial resurfacing techniques. Once healed, not only does your skin look better, it actually is healthier too. This technique replaces older, photo-aged skin with youthful, healthy skin.


As babies, we were born with smooth, soft, blemish-free skin. As we age, our skin is affected by sun exposure, smoking, hormones and pollution, and these environmental influences create skin imperfections which worsen as we age.


Although dermabrasion and chemical peels have offered some hope for patients in the past, risk of scarring, pigmentation problems, discomfort, long recovery periods and lack of sufficient cosmetic results have kept people from having the beautiful skin they want. Experience the latest alternative to traditional treatments with a new procedure - Laser Skin Resurfacing.



Unlike earlier techniques such as dermabrasion or chemical peels, laser resurfacing uses up to the minute computerized technology to assure maximal benefit with reduced down time. Laser skin resurfacing can be combined with cosmetic eye or eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), eyebrow, forehead brow lifts, or with procedures on the lower face such as a midface lift, S lift, or a lower facelift to achieve the best possible results for you.



Laser Facial Resurfacing is performed using a beam of laser energy which vaporizes the upper layers of the damaged skin at specific and controlled levels of penetration. It is clear that Laser Facial Resurfacing may offer a number of advantages over other resurfacing methods: precision, little (if any) bleeding and less postoperative discomfort when performed by experienced surgeons.


Not every practitioner who offers laser surgery has the same level of experience and skill with laser use. That is why it is especially important to use a surgeon adequately trained in the procedure.


One safety measure is to find out whether your surgeon has privileges to perform Laser Facial Resurfacing at an accredited hospital or Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC). The fact that Dr. Kass has privileges to perform Laser Facial Resurfacing at many area hospitals and ACS's insure that he has been fully trained in this technique.


At the Kass Center for Cosmetic Facial and Eye Plastic Surgery, Dr. Kass will use the laser like as artist's brush, tailoring the skin resurfacing procedure to your individual needs. Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth can be smoothed. Laugh and frown creases can be softened. Some acne and surgical scars can be minimized. The surface of the skin can be "freshened", revealing the new skin underneath and also stimulating a renewal of the skin's collagen for a softer and smother appearances.


If you are considering laser skin resurfacing, consult an expert in facial plastic and oculofacial plastic surgery. Dr. Kass has performed laser skin resurfacing on so many satisfied patients during his successful career, why trust your face to anyone else?
