Before & After PhotosLaser Resurfacing

In today’s society, the desire to maintain a youthful appearance with few side effects and little to no downtime has led to the development of new non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedures.

The pursuit of ageless beauty is not new.  The practice of cosmetic rejuvenation was seen in ancient Egypt and has continued and expanded through thousands of years.

Many procedures that were popular previously, were discontinued due to their unacceptable side effects.  Others, like face lift surgery, are still popular today, but require a prolonged recovery period and leave behind scars. 

The rapid growth of available cosmetic procedures came from a demand for:

  • Safe and effective procedures that combat the signs of aging
  • Non-invasive or minimally invasive procedures that can be performed in the office setting
  • Little to no downtime
  • Procedures that renew, rejuvenate and restore the skin as opposed to just tightening the wrinkles


Lasers play a key role in skin rejuvenation, by providing safe and effective, minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments that require little to no time for recovery.

If you're considering a rejuvenation treatment and are interested in learning how Laser Resurfacing can help you achieve a younger-looking, more radiant skin, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Altman at Summit Medical Group Dermatology by calling (908) 277-8668.

Types of Laser Skin Resurfacing at Summit Medical Group

Laser ResurfacingMicroLaserPeel

  • Also known as the Weekend Peel
  • Ablative – this precisely controlled minimal to full epidermal laser peel removes the outermost layers of the skin, quickly improving the signs of aging with little downtime.
  • Ideal for sun damage, fine wrinkles, mild scars, age spots, poor skin texture and tone and pigment irregularities
  • MicroLaserPeel also stimulates your own natural collagen production


Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

  • Laser ResurfacingThe newest technology to enter the laser arena
  • Excellent choice for removing sun damaged skin, discolorations, wrinkles, fine lines and moderate to severe acne scarring
  • Fractional ablative laser – heats and vaporizes tiny cylindrical portions of the skin (epidermis and dermis), treating approximately 5-20% of the skin surface in one session
    • This causes immediate contraction of existing collagen and stimulates new collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin
  • Because only a small portion of the skin is removed at one time, fractional resurfacing results in faster recovery and fewer side effects
  • Safe and effective in all skin types
