The Laser Peel is a quick and effective way to promote healthy collagen with just a weekend recovery. A fractional carbon dioxide laser or erbium laser is used to treat the upper layers of skin and allows the sun damaged skin to peel off. There is one to two days of redness and no wound to take care of besides applying a thin amount of aloe or aquaphor ointment for 48 hours.
Dr. Newman performs the laser peel for patients who are maximizing their home skin care regimen and are looking for additional collagen stimulation.
Sublative rejuvenation uses radiofrequency energy to promote collagen deposition and is most effective on fine lines and acne scars. Also known as Pixel RF, this type of radiofrequency treatment can be used on arms , chest, neck and back to smooth skin from acne and wrinkles. Typically a series of 3-6 treatments are performed at monthly intervals with just the use of topical anesthetic cream.
