After decades of hearing the need for sunscreen, many of us still continue to expose our skin to the harmful effects of the sun. The results of this skin abuse is manifested by premature aging of the skin. In addition, an active lifestyle in the sun without sun protection can accelerate skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, scars and laxity.
Laser technology has become a revolutionary solution to reverse the signs of aging. Lasers have made tremendous advancements in the last twenty years. Depending upon the laser modality utilized, patients can be assured of receiving beautiful results with little to no downtime and very little discomfort.
Dr. Leipziger chose a state-of-the-art multi-modality laser to achieve his skin resurfacing goals. The Sciton Joule® laser, and Forever Young BBL® provide the best of both worlds for his patients — excellent results and minimal downtime. Sciton’s ProFractional laser resurfaces a portion of the skin to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions, while leaving surrounding skin intact to promote rapid recovery. The outcome is greatly improved skin quality that patients benefit from for years after their laser resurfacing procedure series. Ongoing laser and broad band light treatments may be utilized to further enhance skin improvement.

What is ProFractional Laser skin resurfacing?
ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing.
The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to more dramatic.
Areas of treatment may include:
- Brown spots or pigmentation issues
- Sunspots and sun damage
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull complexion
- Rough crepe skin
All laser treatments are performed on-site at our New York plastic surgery practice by our certified aesthetician, Kerry Elmasry or by Dr. Leipziger. We offer a variety of laser and broad band light treatments in order to address a wide range of common skin concerns and conditions.
Designing Your Ideal Laser Skin Treatment Plan
Your laser skin treatment will be fully customized to address your specific concerns and meet your goal outcome. Our aesthetician will work closely with you to choose the right laser treatment for your skin type and unique challenges.
Laser skin rejuvenation works best as a personalized series of ongoing treatments. Most of our laser skin rejuvenation patients return 1-2 times per year or more to maintain a healthy and youthful glow for years to come. Research indicates that patients who receive yearly BBL treatments actually reverse the signs of aging, looking years younger than they did previously.
Additional treatment options, such as Botox, fillers, or non-surgical skincare, can be used to maximize your results for a completely rejuvenated appearance.
1) Most laser treatments require a very short recovery time to allow for skin healing. Some redness and tenderness is to be expected, but in most cases the discomfort is no more than a mild sunburn.
2) Laser treatments are safe for most skin types and can be adjusted based on your unique goals. Our New York certified aesthetician will make recommendations based on what is best for your skin and what will provide the most natural-looking outcomes.
3) Long-lasting results can be maintained with a regular treatment plan. Like any non-surgical treatment, laser skin rejuvenation can deliver healthy, youthful skin year after year with personalized treatment sessions. Depending on your skin type, goals, and concerns, we will work with you to create your ideal laser skin treatment plan.
Most importantly, don’t hesitate to give our office a call should you have any questions during your recovery period. Dr. Leipziger or his certified esthetician will provide you with detailed instructions for your laser treatment aftercare and will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your healing and ensure your best possible outcome.
Dr. Leipziger and Kerry Elmasry (his esthetician) have more than 25 years of experience providing patients with beautifully natural outcomes utilizing a wide range of therapeutic services and skin care.
Laser procedures, like surgery, require experience and skill in order to create the skin quality outcome you are trying to achieve. Kerry and/or Dr. Leipziger will tailor your laser resurfacing and laser skin tightening to meet your appearance objectives.
