Device Treatment Options
Laser and light devices can also be used to reverse signs of aging and prevent further damage. These treatments work by stimulating the body’s own healing processes, either through fractional or ablative procedures. Fractional devices create micro-channels in the skin, leaving surrounding tissue intact. Treatments boost collagen productions within the dermal structure with minimal downtime involved. Ablative devices precisely remove thin layers of skin cells, revealing undamaged skin below. Results can be dramatic, but these devices also require some downtime.
The Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York has the following devices available for treatment:
Surgical Treatment Options
When aging symptoms become more severe, plastic surgery may be necessary. Surgical procedures offer dramatic, long-lasting results for concerns like sagging skin, deep facial creases, jowl formation, and hollowing of the midface. These procedures are frequently performed on an outpatient basis, performed by our board-certified plastic surgeon who brings decades of experience to the operating table. Customization of the procedure to the precise needs and goals of the patient is the primary factor in ensuring natural, youthful, and beautiful results.

The skin’s underlying structure degrades over time, leading to skin laxity and sagging skin. Collagen, the essential protein in our skin, begins to decline as early as our 20s, leaving skin without support from within. Restoring collagen helps to restore the skin’s youthful vitality.
Wrinkles are a common and unwanted sign of aging. As you age, your body produces less collagen, creating saggy and wrinkly looking skin. Our customized strategies to combat wrinkles include laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, and wrinkle relaxers.
Age spots and brown spots (also known as sunspots, liver spots, and lentigines) are a consequence of aging and sun exposure. The most effective treatment for eliminating these spots and other skin pigmentation is laser therapy, which usually includes little to no downtime after treatment.
