Harnessing the power of light, laser resurfacing treats a variety of dermal conditions, ranging from acne scars to age spots. Listen for these two categories of lasers: ablative (ones that remove thin layers of skin) and nonablative (those that tighten skin and stimulate collagen growth). LEARN MORE ›

I had laser skin resurfacing and my face looks worse than it did before the surgery. I had always wanted to remove freckles. Instead, I got hypopigmentation and clear scarring from the laser.What can I do to fix hyperpigmentation/scarring from Laser Skin Resurfacing? READ MORE

I've had two treatments so far... I pay $500 per visit without a contract, which I like. I don’t want to waste my money on packages that I don’t see any results. So far, I haven't and I don’t know if I can handle doing five as recommended for my scarring. This laser... READ MORE

I recovered really quickly! The first week was a drag...frozen pea bags for an hour on an hour off all day...applying Aquaphor, taking it off to do vinegar soaks every 3 hours...The goo was a mess...I had NO pain-didn't even take a Tylenol...My eyelids were swollen for a few days, but never...

It has been 10 days since my Co2laser resurfaresurfing for acne. I don't have to wear vasoline on my face anymore. So now I can see my face better. I see a little improvement. I wasn't expecting 100% but were my deeper scars were they are still visible. The doctor said my skin is still... READ MORE

Spectra was developed to help those with darker skin types to rejuvenate and disturb the collagen in the skin. The team tested spectra on over 600 individuals finding excellent results for over 94 percent of those who tried it, try spectra!! It specifically heats up around the areas where hyper... READ MORE

For most of my life, I neglected to properly care for my skin by wearing sunscreen. I would put it on if I went to the beach or went hiking, but it wasn't an everyday thing, and I started noticing brown spots on my face in the past few years. Finally I decided to try to do something about it,... READ MORE

As a mother of two, exhausted and tired, I began noticing my skin needed a boost. I decided it was time to take my skincare and upkeep seriously so I started asking around for a doctor. My girlfriend told me about Dr. Zuliani and I thank her all the time for doing so!! For the past few years... READ MORE

I have not recognized myself in the mirror for 3 or 4 years. Dr. Scheiner has allowed me to see me again. He was informative and thorough throughout the entire experience. I researched doctors for over a year before deciding on Dr. Scheiner. I absolutely recommend him. His joy in his work shows... READ MORE

- This clinic overcharges patients. They charged me $600 per treatment just for my forehead. - The front desk staff is rude. They act as if they are making the favor to accept you at the clinic. - They put me on hydroquinone daily and laser every month. I am doing some progress but am not sure... READ MORE

For nearly 3 years I have wished I had NOT trusted the skin on my face to Dr. Manish Shah. EVERY day, ALL day. Dr. Shah offered me a complementary fat grafting procedure in an attempt to resolve the issue, but I would never trust him to touch my face again. Absolute nightmare experience. This... READ MORE

I was concerned with skin discoloration, fine lines around the mouth, and just wanted to look younger. I loved the care that I received at Dr. McFadden's office. I enjoyed my visits. Dr. McFadden and his team made me feel at home and provided a fun atmosphere. To me the procedure was... READ MORE

Thank you Dr Fox for being so patient with me and explaining every detail prior to having erbium laser. I was so nervous prior to the procedure and you asked me what made me feel that way and explained your approach with the laser and experience which put me at ease. You are the most patient...

First let me say I was in no hurry to rush out and get this done at the first place I could find. I researched many doctors that practice laser resurfacing. In my search I learned that it is best to find someone that has the correct credentials for this, not just capable of doing it. Doing it... READ MORE

I am a 65-year-old woman who spent 40 years as a sun goddess and had a lot of sun damage. I had the laser resurfacing procedure done in early February, 2016 and it is now completely healed and awesome! To start the process, my face was covered with a numbing cream, then the doctor injected my... READ MORE

Did recoSMA treatment. They say it does'nt 'burn' the skin but it smells like burnt hair or skin throughout the treatment. They also say you don't need anything for the pain. I handled it but my sister who has had other various treatments: co2, peels etc. found it unbearable & went into shock... READ MORE

My expectations are to come out of the procedure at least 10 years younger!! In all the review I did and interaction with Dr. Wu and his assistant Brittani, I believe I am well informed and ready for the laser resurfacing. Once I have completed the procedure, I will come back and let you all... READ MORE

Davin suggested he could "even" up the freckles on my arms. He told me nothing about the procedure, just said it would be an improvement for my skin. 2 weeks after the first session my arms looked like a giraffe - from the Q-Switch treatment he performed. He did not indicate that there would be... READ MORE

I had a neck lift two years ago but it didn't help the sun damage skin on the neck. My plastic surgeon did an excellent job. But I was still not happy with the texture of my skin and the color didn't match my face. I am one of those girls who was a fanatic about the sunscreen on the face and... READ MORE

The texture of my face has been ruined by Dr. Scheiner. He also scarred my face with his laser. He claims to be the best (partly due to his tv appearances) but is only concerned about making money. The follow up he provided was abismal and could even be considered negligent in the eyes of his... READ MORE

I had about 20 sessions of Spectra over the course of 4 years to treat melasma. The spectra definitely works and makes my melasma less apparent but the results do not last hence the 20 sessions. I find that the dark spots are back within a month or two and I am back to square one. Zero down... READ MORE
