Laser skin resurfacing in Carlsbad and Oceanside

The surface skin layer is delicately removed with the laser device to trigger natural cell growth. This treatment stimulates collagen production for smoother, younger-looking, evenly-toned skin. Double-board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Amir Moradi offers different types of laser skin resurfacing techniques and has equipped Moradi MD with advanced treatment devices, each of which works slightly differently. All laser treatments at Moradi MD are performed by board-certified medical professionals who use refined techniques coupled with strict patient safety protocols.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser skin resurfacing uses light energy to vaporize the damaged upper layer of skin. When the superficial skin is removed, it allows new skin to grow, revealing fresh, healthy, skin cells. Local anesthesia and sedation are used to ensure the procedure is painless. Your eyes are protected during the procedure, and you will rest comfortably in a private treatment room, cared for by a board-certified medical professional from start to finish. Treatment may take up to two hours to complete, after which you are free to return home to recover.

Soft, smooth, evenly toned skin can be yours

If you have unevenly toned skin, sunspots, age spots, freckles, wrinkles, creases, or lines, laser skin resurfacing may be the ideal way to transform your look. At Moradi MD, we are equipped with some of the most effective laser skincare devices available worldwide, selected to produce the best result possible:

Deka DOT

SmartXide Deka DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) laser skin resurfacing therapy offers a novel approach for total skin transformation. DOT therapy can be an effective, minimally invasive way to treat less extreme aesthetic skin issues, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. Moradi MD offers this alternative to both men and women who are seeking laser skin resurfacing to treat specific skin flaws.

LaseMD rebuilds glowing, healthy skin through gentle but effective non-ablative fractionated treatments. “Fractionated” refers to the device causing less injury to the skin surface. By creating columns of thermal damage to the skin, rather than affecting the entire skin surface, the device encourages faster healing. LaseMD offers three different levels of treatment and can be adjusted to match your facial condition, your comfort levels, and your skin type. LaseMD is a gentle, effective way to dramatically enhance your facial skin quality.

It delivers three levels of intensity, each with varying recovery times:

  • Deep treatment: Your face will appear pink for about one week after treatment.
  • Medium treatment: Pinkness fades in about two to four days following treatment.
  • Mild treatment: Pinkness fades in about four to six hours after treatment.

Laser skin resurfacing recovery

Laser resurfacing is an outpatient procedure. With LaseMD, a non-ablative fractional laser, the recovery time is relatively uneventful, taking about two weeks, with results that are remarkably beautiful. For more extensive laser skin resurfacing procedures, pain medication may be needed to stay comfortable in the early stages of healing. The face may be protected with dressings and appear red for several weeks. In these cases, as the skin heals, it is normal to expect some crusting and to need a few days to resume normal activities. Sleep on your back, with your head elevated, and follow all aftercare instructions to speed healing.
