Skin Resurfacing

by Hussam Kujok, MD

What is skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing is a treatment used to decrease the appearance of facial wrinkles and blemishes, such as acne scars. Some laser skin resurfacing methods may even be successful on warts, enlarged oil glands, and other skin conditions.

Laser skin resurfacing uses laser technology to deliver short, concentrated beams of light. It delivers pulsed light energy quickly, in a pattern that targets and removes thin layers of skin without causing heat damage to the surrounding cells.

It takes around two weeks to notice the full effects of your treatment, so it’s important to give your body time to heal before assessing your outcome.


Will I be a good candidate for skin resurfacing?

You’ll be a good candidate for skin resurfacing if you have:


Fine lines or wrinkles

Fine lines or wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, and forehead respond particularly well to laser skin resurfacing.


Acne and scarring

Certain acne scars and other types of scarring may also be suitable for laser skin resurfacing. Dr. Kujok will assess the depth and shape of your scars and decide on the best treatment method.


How can I prepare for my laser skin resurfacing treatment?

Before your treatment, you may need to refrain from taking certain medications or supplements. You’ll likely need to abstain from smoking since this can prolong the healing process.

If you’re prone to bacterial infections, Dr. Kujok may prescribe an antibiotic. He will advise you on any other necessary steps to ensure you’re ready.

With laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Kujok can treat your entire face in the same appointment. In fact, he's a certified expert when it comes to providing laser skin resurfacing treatments to their patients. The continuous influx of successful results is the reason he continues using this exciting technology.
