Laser skin resurfacing utilizes focused light rays to target the current, damaged layer of skin. The old layer is broken down using the laser in order to promote a fresh, healthier layer to grow in its place. Thanks to the initiation and increase in collagen production from this procedure, the result will produce new radiant skin. It will also produce a younger, smoother, and more even skin tone and complexion. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers different types of laser skin resurfacing depending on the patient's needs and desired outcome. All laser treatments are performed by Dr. Moradi's Certified Physician Assistants.

"I Only Trust Dr. Moradi with my Face - Dr. Moradi and his staff has taken care of me for 15 years. I just had my nose done and I couldn't be happier. He takes very careful care of everything he does. The one thing that impresses me about him is he insists on NOT doing things that you dont need or is going to make you look un natural. Then there is Veronica, his assistant. She has a soothing way about her, a perfect..."- H. / RealSelf / Jul 31, 2018

Laser skin resurfacing uses controlled light beams with high intensity to vaporize and remove the upper layer of the skin. When the damaged, superficial skin is removed, it gives way for new skin to grow, which masks the face with a new layer of epidermis. Any pain during the procedure is managed with local anesthesia and/or sedatives to help the patient relax. The eyes will also be protected since lasers can be harmful to the patient’s vision. Laser skin resurfacing’s advanced technology allows accurate targeting of smaller areas so the surrounding skin is not affected. A session may take up to 2 hours depending on the patient’s skin conditions.
SmartXide Deka DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) laser skin resurfacing therapy offers a new and novel approach to transform skin and enhance its overall appearance. DOT therapy can be an effective, minimally invasive way to address smaller cosmetic issues, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring, as it is used to target concentrated areas of the skin. Moradi MD offers this alternative to both men and women who are seeking out laser skin resurfacing on a more minor scale.
During/After the Procedure
Laser resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. There may be pain during treatment, so local anesthesia can be used to minimize the patient’s discomfort. The doctor may also prescribe the patient a pain reliever after the procedure. The face may be bandaged after treatment. Since the epidermis is peeled away, the skin may appear red for several weeks. As it heals, crusting may be present. It is very important to follow the doctor’s advice on skin care to prevent any scarring. It may take a few days before the patient can resume normal activities. It may also be beneficial to use an extra pillow when sleeping to ease any discomfort.
