Ablative laser resurfacing, also known as a “laser peel,” is an intensive skin treatment that safely removes the upper layer of aging skin to regenerate new, healthy skin cells. Ablative laser resurfacing forces your skin to undergo intensive cellular regeneration and healing that results in dramatically-improved skin quality. The best part: The results appear within a few short weeks.

What is ablative laser resurfacing?

Ablative laser resurfacing is the term for a type of laser treatment that removes the upper layer of your facial skin, similar to a chemical peel. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY and NJ, we offer several forms of ablative laser treatments and will select the most appropriate system to restore smoother, tighter, more supple facial skin.

Ablative laser resurfacing can:

  • Reduce the appearance of mild and moderate fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation (sun spots, age spots, and freckles)
  • Tighten and firm your skin
  • Provide a more even and smooth complexion
  • Treat sun-damaged skin
  • Reduce the appearance of acne, chickenpox, or other facial scars
  • Effectively treat sagging skin
  • Reduce enlarged oil glands
  • Remove facial warts

When you’re considering laser resurfacing, it’s essential to understand the pros and cons of each type of treatment. Ablative laser resurfacing comes with some downtime (up to two weeks), but it also has some pretty incredible benefits:

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
