What is Fraxel laser skin resurfacing?

Fraxel laser resurfacing uses advanced laser technology to stimulate your body’s collagen production. When your collagen production increases, your body works to reverse the effects of aging and sun damage from within. The most common treatment areas with our NYC Fraxel laser are the face, neck, chest and hands.

Why should I choose Fraxel laser resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing addresses many of the most common signs of aging that have been treated traditionally with surgery. The technologies behind laser treatments work with your skin’s natural processes and minimize downtime and recovery. Additionally, our team has worked with Fraxel laser technology for years, giving us total expertise in its use and nuances. If we happen to recommend an alternative treatment to help you reach your cosmetic goals, we will be forthcoming with you. Your first step is a consultation in our offices in NYC or NJ.

How does Fraxel laser skin resurfacing work?

Laser energy has been used for many years to fight the signs of aging. Lasers work by protecting untreated skin from damage while applying laser energy only to the targeted layers of your skin. New skin cells form after treatment, and your fine lines and wrinkles slowly fade away.

Is the procedure painful?

During your NYC Fraxel laser procedure, you will be given either a topical or local anesthetic; sedation is not necessary. After the procedure, most patients describe the discomfort as similar to a mild sunburn, which subsides quickly.

How long will it take to heal?

Recovery after your NJ Fraxel laser resurfacing can take less than a week for lighter resurfacing procedures, and up to several weeks for deeper procedures. After treatment, you will be asked to keep the area moist. The initial redness after the procedure will fade over a period of time; however, camouflage makeup may be used to cover the redness. There is no downtime after Fraxel Restore resurfacing.

How soon will I see results?

Clinical studies suggest that a gradual improvement of wrinkled, sun-damaged skin can be achieved with three to seven Fraxel Restore laser treatments, spaced at one to four-week intervals.

What is the cost of Fraxel laser skin resurfacing?

Every patient is different. They have different cosmetic goals, as well as underlying circumstances. To provide you with a cost for treatment, you will first undergo a private consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists in NYC or NJ. At Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists, we also accept CareCredit and Alphaeon Credit to help you rapidly get the treatment you desire.

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
