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've desired smoother skin due to acne scaring and overall unevenness of my skin. The doctor recommended laser resurfacing. After considering it and reading up on the procedure I decided to go through with it. I did a full face resurfacing under conscious sedation. I woke up with what looked... READ MORE

Wanted to reduce wrinkles and lines on face. Had the procedure in his office. Staff was excellent, and very compassionate. It went very well. Recovery was not as bad as I thought it would be. No pain in healing. I can see a great difference. Would do it again. Every week I see... READ MORE

Very pleasant experience. I was well informed on expectations for pre laser as well as post laser treatment. I would definitely do it again. Dr. Aquadro and staff answered all my questions. Was very prompt in returning my phone calls. I am very pleased with the results and look forward to... READ MORE

I had 2 procedures done that day: 1. Eyelid Laser Resurfacing *Laser Tx to periorbital regions of both eyes, upper & lower - for moderate-severe dynamic wrinkles. I believe it was - Deep Fx to lower eyelid regions with Active Fx to upper lids (Co2 Ablative Laser -... READ MORE

Everyone and everything I encountered was superb! This was the first time I'd had any work performed on my face, so I was nervous. I was greeted and made to feel right at home. The staff was extremeley friendly and attentive. My procedure was clearly explained to me. This was definitely worth... READ MORE

Dr. Young has performed at least four procedures on me. The fact that I keep going back is an indication of his expertise. He sets realistic expectations, is thorough, caring and excellent in his work. I highly recommend him and look forward to the next time I visit his practice - always a... READ MORE

I had the Deka Dot laser resurfacing with Dr. Andy Schneider at Forsyth Plastic Surgery in Winston Salem, NC for general superficial signs of aging (dark spots, light lines and wrinkles, under-eye puffiness). The staff, including Dr. Shcnieder, was AWESOME and very quick to respond to... READ MORE

I've been a patient of Dr. Levy and the Medical Spa at the Pro Sports Club for several years, but only last year did I finally choose to undergo the procedure my laser hair removal/IPL specialist recommended: deep laser resurfacing. I chose this procedure because at age 62, my face was beginning... READ MORE

I have tried many creams and toners to remove facial spots, none worked. I saw an ad for Advanced Cosmetic Surgery that looked interesting. It was a price I could afford. I hated having Vaseline on my face, but it was only temporary. The first shower day after the treatment was a wake up. My... READ MORE

Here are some random photo work from my file since I got asked a lot about submitting pictures from other community members. I have plenty, yet I have selected photos of my forehead, sides, behind the ear and neighbouring areas and neckline including. I have tried to post some of the right-away... READ MORE

Below is what I have found out so far when I inquired about which laser services (for acne scars) are provided from each doctor/ medi spa in Lafayette, La. Most tried to book me for a consultation and were reluctant to tell me what lasers they even use. Obviously I can't afford to pay over a... READ MORE

As a 40 year-old woman, I am always trying to stay ahead of the aging game. Dr. wise always takes his time with me. His staff is so sweet and professional. I have had several 'non-invasive' procedures with him that turned out great. He trained at Yale and U Penn. He teaches at NYU. I don't... READ MORE

I had thought about having the laser resurfacing procedure done for about a year to repair the sun damage and acne damage on my face. I decided to do all the research I could prior to stepping into actually having the procedure. Several well known plastic surgeons and dermatologists that I saw,... READ MORE

I used to have very oily dull skin with large pores and saggy skin around my jaws that always turned into my ‘second chin’ when I looked down (since I was in high school). I suppose it was my bad habit of eating margarine as my snack (yes, it was crazy, I know) throughout my elementary sch... READ MORE

I had the bags under my eyes removed, the droopy eylids corrected, and my brows lifted. The surgery lasted about 2 hours and is PAIN FREE. You must follow all pre-surgery instructions to the letter for your surgery to be successful as mine was. It took me about 10 days before I could start... READ MORE

I went to Dr Swanson after seeing amazing results on a friend. We both did a series of 3. I just did my last one last night. Cynthia used numbing cream for about SN hour and the procedure itself was about 20 minutes. This reduced my dark spots, improved texture, reduced wrinkles and pores... READ MORE

Being Brazilian, where beauty is fundamental and home of the top doctors in the area, I can say that it is hard to find a dermatologist that you can trust and really feel 100% safe. I did a great deal of research to find someone that I could not only trust due to competency and experience, but... READ MORE

I'm 57 and sun damage, age, and recent weight loss was really starting to show in my face. In late October '13 I had fully ablative laser resurfacing with spot treatment at the Gateway Laser Center. I also had a TCA peel around my neck. The surgery was done at the Gateway Center and they did a... READ MORE

Combined 1540nm/2940nm laser procedure to reduce wrinkles and improve overall skin appearance. A few days down time, relatively painless, results were very rewarding. Dr Martin is also my go to for Botox treatments. I am still able to articulate expression without the nasty frown lines. All... READ MORE

Dr. Palm was recommended to me by someone very familiar with the many cosmetic surgeons in San Diego. She said she was the best and I can say that the recommendation matched the results. When I went in for my consultation, I was impressed with the location of the office, the modern... READ MORE
