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.

"Really Listens to you - Always personal and authentic. Listens to your requests (and sometimes fear). From the moment you walk into your treatment room you are greeted by Veronica who seems to quell your anxiety and when Dr. Moradi comes in, you know you are in excellent hands."- M. / RealSelf / Apr 05, 2018
"The BEST in the biz!!! - I absolutely feel like I’m aging gracefully with the help of this amazing man and his staff. Initially, I was referred to Dr. Moradi from another cosmetic MD and later referred to him by an acquaintance of mine. I respect Dr. Moradi so much for his conservative and honest approach. He consults and thoroughly evaluates your needs while discussing the options. Less is more with him. I love it w..."- K. / RealSelf / Mar 29, 2018
"I always know I'm in the best of hands (literally) when I see Dr. Moradi. My experience, and results, are spot on every single time I go in for my treatments.

"Amazing doctor and staff A+++ - I have been going to Dr. Moradi for over a year now and I couldn’t be happier with my results. He is excellent and he will not “over-do” any procedure, he is very honest and if you don’t need it, he won’t do it, I really appreciate that. Additionally, Veronica is amazing and is always available for questions or concerns. All of the staff is great, I have gone other places in the past, but..."- B. / RealSelf / Mar 14, 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.
