Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced cosmetic enhancement technique that can reduce or eliminate creases, lines, blemishes, uneven skin tone, and discoloration. Treatment involves removing damaged skin layers and bringing to the surface healthier, smoother skin. Naturally, these procedures require a high degree of control and finesse for greater success, which is why Dr. Zeff has two different lasers, an FX fractional laser and a scanning co2 laser. The “fractional” approach breaks the beam into myriad smaller beams. The treatment is a little less aggressive, but gives the skin a much smoother appearance while reducing discoloration and evening skin tone. Dr. Zeff has performed hundreds of laser skin resurfacing procedures and feels this laser gives him excellent depth control, thus minimizing the risk of complications.
While the results are consistently good, there is a period of healing that typically lasts seven to 12 days, depending on the extent of treatment. At this point, the skin is healed and noticeably smoother but still quite pink – a phase that can last weeks to months (again, depending on the depth of treatment). Fortunately, make-up usually hides this well.
Laser skin resurfacing is typically an outpatient procedure.
Facial Rosacea Treatment
If you are self-conscious about the level of redness in your face, you may have rosacea and not even know it. A common skin condition, rosacea affects nearly 14 million Americans, but most are not even familiar with the disorder. Symptoms of rosacea include everything from tiny blood vessels, small red spots, tiny veins or generalized redness of the nose, cheeks and other areas of the face. Dr. Zeff offers advanced laser treatments that can reduce the visible symptoms of rosacea for a healthier appearance to the skin.
Broken capillaries and enlarged blood vessels typically occur in facial areas and look like thin, red lines along the skin. Rosacea, sun damage, certain medications, and the natural process of aging can all be contributors to these common skin conditions. Fortunately, laser therapy has proven to be very effective treatments for broken capillaries. Dr. Zeff offers state-of-the-art laser skin rejuvenation procedures that can target specific areas of the face and give the skin a smoother, more even-toned appearance.
