FRACTIONAL LASER SKIN RESURFACING
Laser skin resurfacing is one of the most powerful tools available to surgeons to rejuvenate the skin. It can be used to treat sun damage, wrinkles, age spots (dyschromia), melasma, and several other skin conditions. It involves using a laser that is absorbed by water, either a CO2 laser or Erbium YAG laser, to treat the skin with high energy pulses. When the water in the skin absorbs the energy from the laser, it is ablated, or vaporized, and eventually replaced by new skin that is of a better quality. One of the problems with the first generation of laser skin resurfacing treatments was that in order to get this great result, patients had to wait for 3 months while maintaining a meticulous skin care regimen.
The advent of fractional laser resurfacing addressed this problem of excessive healing time, by treating columns of the skin rather than the entire surface. By treating only columns of skin, the distance that the skin had to migrate into the ablated area of skin was greatly reduced, as was the healing time and risk of scarring. However, the result was also compromised compared to the traditional skin resurfacing.
We address this particular issue by using a fractional laser to create columns of deeply treated tissue followed by an ablative laser to treat the entire surface, so that even the “untreated” areas from traditional fractional laser resurfacing get treated. This gives us the advantages of both the traditional and fractional laser resurfacing.
Our fractional laser skin resurfacing patients are some of the most satisfied patients that we have, which makes it a very rewarding procedure to perform. Visually, we see skin with fewer fine wrinkles, more fullness, and with markedly reduced age spots and discoloration. Patients that have had laser resurfacing are some of the most satisfied patients, having younger looking skin and lasting results.

“I had a great experience in the office today. As soon as I walked in I felt immediately welcomed by Noelle. She did a great job of helping me understand the process before I began. Today I had laser hair removal done Cindy Roberts. She did a wonderful job by explaining me step by step of what she was doing. That made me feel really comfortable as I sat in the chair. Dr Summit Kundaria worked on my upper lip for the hair removal and explained how everything works and what I should do once I walked out. Over all you can tell how each employee values customer care and the quality of their work. I would definitely recommend this place.”

“Dr. Kundaria really listens to his patients, something not always found in plastic surgeons. Professional from the consultation, thru the procedure and even called to check on me after I was at home. I’ve also had injectables done by Dr Kundaria and always happy with results. I would and have recommend him to anyone who asks.”
“Dr. Kundaria and his staff is top notch. They were both were acceptive to my needs and I walked out of their office today feeling more alive than when I walked in.”
