The surface of the skin and its intrinsic quality play a major role in how healthy and youthful a person looks. Regardless of the specific procedure I am performing, my goal is always to enhance that patient’s overall appearance and this often will include treating the skin with some type of adjunctive therapy. At the Lasky Laser Center we have a myriad of state-of-the-art technologies to choose from in order to selectively treat our patients. The Lasky Laser Center is constantly acquiring new technologies, but only once the science has proven them to be effective.
These machines can be used to improve skin texture, pigmentation, fine lines and even bruising resulting from surgery or injections. Because we have so many different devices we can customize treatment to that particular patient’s needs rather than treat every patient with a single alternative. The coordinator of our Laser Center works hand in hand with my patients to ensure that they are treated in an individualized fashion and informed off all current treatment options. For those lasers treatments that are more aggressive or that require sedation I personally perform the procedures, whether they are being done as stand alone operations or in conjunction with other surgery.

FAQs About Laser Skin Rejuvenation
You may have heard laser skin rejuvenation also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing, or lasabrasion. Whichever name you prefer, it is a procedure which utilizes precise beams of light to reduce wrinkles, scars and other imperfections on delicate areas of the body. Laser skin rejuvenation can be used to improve skin texture, pigmentation of the skin, and fine lines. It can even help to minimize bruising that has formed as a result of surgery or injections.
Who are candidates for laser skin rejuvenation?
Good candidates for laser skin rejuvenation have skin imperfections that do not respond to gentler treatments. The best skin to be treated has good elasticity and does not scar easily. Laser skin rejuvenation is also best suited for people with lighter skin tones, since the chances of skin discoloration are less likely. Patients undergoing treatment should not have any serious medical conditions or take prescription medication that can increase risk of complications during the procedure or recovery.
Where is laser skin rejuvenation performed?
Your procedure will be performed as an outpatient procedure at the Lasky Laser Center, located right on the premises. The most aggressive laser treatments, or those that require sedation, are personally performed by Dr. Frankel.
How do I prepare for laser skin rejuvenation?
Six weeks or more before the day of the procedure, skin treatments may be prescribed to prepare your skin for laser skin rejuvenation. Skin care regimens are individualized to each patient’s skin type to properly ensure optimal results and limit complications. Smoking tobacco can complicate the healing process. For the best results, discontinue smoking.
