Laser Resurfacing in Philadelphia, PA

Located in Bala Cynwyd and serving Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Maple Shade, New Jersey, and the surrounding area, The Falcone Center for Functional, Cosmetic and Integrative Medicine offers laser skin resurfacing to residents interested in skin rejuvenation.

Laser resurfacing uses laser light to remove skin layer by layer with precision, revealing healthier-looking skin beneath*. Most times, this treatment is performed to reduce fine lines around the mouth and eyes. It can be useful in treating areas or uneven pigmentation or facial scars*. Other treatable areas include the following:

  • Non-responsive skin after a facelift
  • Aged or sun-damaged skin
  • Liver spots
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks
  • Enlarged oil glands on the nose

Using beams of light, the goal is to remove layers of skin so that new skin will fill the crevices and wrinkles. This targeted approach stimulates the growth of new collagen fibers, and as the treated area heals, smoother and firmer skin is formed.

Before lasers, the only medical treatment options were microdermabrasion and chemical peels. The drawback of these procedures is that they do not use the light generated by lasers and can only remove a very thin layer of the skin. Lasers can treat much deeper layers of the skin.

After Your Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment

It is common to expect some discomfort and light swelling after the treatment. We recommend using an ice pack after a treatment and sometimes Dr. Falcone will prescribe a mild medication. You may also experience a crusted, red appearance for 10 days or more.
