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.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
"I have been a client of Dr Moradi's for many years and have always been treated with respect and dignity. Sheila, who specializes in laser treatments, is lovely, and does a terrific job every time I go to her. Through the years I've had chemical peels by Sara, many laser treatments by Sheila, and have had numerous consultations with Dr. Moradi. Their location is a bit strange and tricky if you're coming from the east on hwy 78. Best to mapquest it. There is a sharp turn directly behind the Culligan sign. When exiting the parking lot there is NO LEFT TURN, which means you have to go several miles west before you can go east. I don't mind because I feel like their prices are very fair and it's worth the drive from Poway.They've recently installed a beverage center and you can make a cup of coffee or tea while you are waiting. Generally the wait is not long but I always bring a book, my knitting, or some coupons to clip whilst I wait.Lovely people in every sense of the word. I highly recommend their practice."- W.R. / Yelp / Sep 27, 2011
"I would highly recommend Dr. Moradi for any service. I have had a wonderful experience with him and his staff. I recently had Erbium and C02 laser facial resurfacing completed with him. My results are amazing!! People constantly mention how great my face looks! His follow up care was exceptional! I also appreciate knowing that he continues to educate himself and his staff with all the latest technologies in his field."- K.S. / Yelp / Nov 06, 2013
"Dr. Moradi is the most talented, amazing doctor. He is a perfectionist and I would trust no other person to touch my face. He is highly educated in his field and actually teaches other doctors how to do procedures. He has integrity,honesty, and patience and an eye to what is best for a natural appearance. So many of my friends go to him and everyone loves him and his work. I have actually gotten thank you notes from friends for the referral as they were so happy with their results. His staff is great (I especially love Veronica) Sheila has done my fraxel, IPL and Exilis with amazing results (Sheila is so nice and good at what she does, too) . I would never recommend a doctor unless I thought they were over-the-top amazing and Dr. Moradi is the best at what he does. Don't go anywhere else. You won't be disappointed. HE IS THE BEST!!"- D.S. / Yelp / Jun 06, 2012
"Very professional doctor with a great bedside manner. He is very knowledgeable in all procedures he does. I have been going to him for years.The office will use numbing cream on you if you are not good with needles. I don't like to use it myself. I occasionally get bruises, but most of the time I don't. I have also had Fraxel done here and Thermage."- M. / RealSelf / Sep 19, 2011

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.
