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 have been going to Dr. Moradi's office for many years. He along with his staff are so welcoming and provide many wonderful services. Recently I started seeing Becca and she is wonderful! I highly recommend their office."- C.D. / Yelp / Apr 10, 2019
"I had such a wonderful experience at Dr. Moradi's office! I recieved treatment from Josalynn. She is absolutely wonderful. I went in for an eyebrow wax (turned out amazing), hydro-jelly facial, and micro-derm. It was my first experience with a facial and micro-derm. Josalynn explained everything to me and continously asked if I was okay. It made the experience that much better. The entire process felt like a mini vacation and my skin felt absolutely amazing afterwards! I can't thank her enough for her professionalism and providing me with such a wonderful experience!"- T.S. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2019
"I have been going to Dr. Moradi for botox for awhile and I like everything about him. He's not aggressive, he pays attention to detail, and he listens carefully to my concerns. I've had other treatments by staff in his office and they have all been the best in every way. I highly recommend Dr. Moradi and his team."- P.P. / Yelp / May 17, 2019

"So when I decided to finally start having laser hair removal I went to this place in Carlsbad. I walked in and walked right back out. From the appearance to the receptionist, everything turned me off. Second spot was here with Moradi MD Cosmetics. I walked in and the place was clean and modern. Right away I was greeted by a friendly receptionist. I started my laser sessions with Becca. Simply put she is amazing. She's professional and friendly. She insures that my comfort is priority at each session. Before each procedure she offers an ice pack to help ease the pain a little. Let's be real, it's NOT pain free. When all is done she offers some Cortizone cream to help with the slight irritation. I highly recommend Becca. The procedure itself is just as painful as getting a wax. However, with laser it's over way faster and there's no sticky mess to deal with afterwards. Financially, if you can afford to pay for waxing as often as you'd have to then laser is something your should really consider. Waxing is, on average, 2-3 week. With laser it's every 6 weeks. I'm currently 5 sessions in and I have loner periods of no hair regrowth. Most importantly I have no ingrowns from waxing and not razor bumps from shaving. Laser is the way to go!! Moradi MD is the place you want to have it done!"- E.R. / Yelp / Apr 23, 2019
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.

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.
