Visit us for Laser Resurfacing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania, Maple Shade, New Jersey, and the surrounding areas. The Falcone Center for Functional and Cosmetic Medicine offers laser skin resurfacing to potential candidates 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 caused by a facelift
- Aged skin
- Sun-damaged or photodamaged skin
- Liver or spots
- 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 production of new collagen fibers to achieve smoother, firmer skin as the area heals.
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.

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.
