Thank you very much for your inquiry regarding facial rejuvenation, specifically cosmetic laser skin resurfacing.
I have over 20 years of experience performing laser skin resurfacing procedures. I completed a residency and fellowship at Stanford University Medical Center and remained as a clinical professor for seven years. I practice in Las Vegas Nevada, known as the Center of Excellence in Facial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery. I am a physician trainer on the carbon dioxide laser.
The DOT (Dermal Optical Thermolysis) fractional CO2 skin resurfacing laser device has been shown in a direct, side by side comparison, published in a peer-reviewed scientific jounal of the top ten fractional lasers to be the best skin resurfacing laser in the world today. (Waibel J, et al. Preliminary Observations on Fractional Ablative Resurfacing Devices: Clinical Impressions. Journal of Drugs in Dermatology 2009;8(5):481-485).
Laser Skin Therapy or Laser Skin Resurfacing offers fast and affordable results with only mild discomfort under topical anesthesia augmented with facial trigeminal nerve blocks. The laser improves your skin’s appearance by reducing and even eliminating wrinkles, lines, areas of pigmentation or age spots (solar elastosis) and even acne scarring.
I presented my results at the December 2010 Anti-Aging Medicine annual meeting. According to the president of DEKA North America, it is the largest study in the United States. The overall patient satisfaction rate in 100 consecutive patients was 97%. Most patients (90%) required one treatment, 7% needed two treatment sessions and only 3% three treatment sessions, to achieve the patient’s satisfaction with the skin outcome.
It is mildly uncomfortable during the procedure (3 out of 10 in pain scale), only 1% of patients needing narcotics after the treatment day. There is mild swelling for 4-5 days, skin dryness resulting in 3-5 day duration of skin peeling and two to three weeks of mild pink hue to the skin. This rapid recovery allows patients to return to the normal daily activities as soon as possible, with no to minimal skin scabbing and without compromising the outcome. Woman may wear makeup in 2-5 days after the procedure.
During your initial free consultation, we will discuss your aesthetic concerns and discuss your treatment options. Please continue browsing our website The web site has one patient with sequential photographs of each day and week of her recovery. I look forward to meeting you in my office.
Sincerely & Respectfully,
