Anti-Aging Treatments / Laser Skin Resurfacing in Princeton, NJ
With so many anti-aging treatments on the market today, you want real results that last, but you may believe that better skin is only achieved through surgery and injections. Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, a board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist, is proud to offer the men and women of New Jersey, including those throughout Princeton and Plainsboro, anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing at his Central New Jersey area office.
What is Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Cosmetic procedures have changed drastically over the years thanks in part to new laser technologies. The lasers that are used for anti-aging treatments are designed to treat only the targeted layer of skin without damaging other layers. The result is that you have healthier skin that is free of blemishes, lines, wrinkles, scars, uneven tone and sun damage.
Benefits of Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing
Board-certified New Jersey otolaryngologist Dr. Scott Kay, FACS, uses CO2 laser technologies for his patients’ anti-aging treatments. CO2 lasers offer the following benefits to our patients:
- Optimum results in just one treatment for most patients
- CO2 technology penetrates deep into the skin to correct cosmetic issues
- Better results than other types of laser resurfacing technologies
How is Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing Performed?
The goal of your anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing is to remove the layers of damaged skin while stimulating collagen production and new skin growth. The sensation of laser skin resurfacing for anti-aging feels like tiny pinches on your skin. Because the laser is applied quickly to each section of your face, the discomfort is generally tolerable. Some patients are more comfortable with a topical or local anesthesia, and in cases where significant treatment is needed, Dr. Kay may recommend general anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Kay applies the laser energy in short bursts across the treatment area. Depending on the type and extent of correction, the procedure takes less than 90 minutes.
Preparing for Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing
To ensure that your skin is properly prepared for anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Kay may recommend that you use special creams and lotions on your skin. He may also prescribe medications prior to the procedure to protect you against infections and other side effects after the procedure.
Anti-Aging Treatment with Skin Resurfacing Recovery
After the anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing, Dr. Kay applies a special treatment to your skin to help with healing. He may also cover your face with bandages. The most common symptoms after the treatment are mild pain and swelling. Most patients manage these symptoms with ice packs and over-the-counter pain medications. Healing takes about seven to 14 days. A crusty scab forms over your face during the first stage of healing. You should not attempt to remove the scab as this may cause scars. Over time, the scab falls off your skin. In rare cases, patients have experienced hyperpigmentation after the treatment. Your skin is quite sensitive after the treatment, even when it is fully healed, so you should avoid the sun for at least one month.
How Much Does Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?
CO2 lasers are highly versatile systems that treat a range of cosmetic flaws and signs of aging. As such, the cost of your anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing depends on the extent of the procedure. We will know an exact cost after your consultation with Dr. Kay. You can pay for your anti-aging treatment with laser skin resurfacing by personal check, cash, credit card or CareCredit® financing.
Is Anti-Aging Treatment with Laser Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?

- Lines and wrinkles
