Elite MD Laser Resurfacing Testimonial for Dr. Bansal by an Elite MD Patient:

Dr. Bansal of Elite MD has single handedly improved the quality of my life! My results are phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal. There are no other words for it! In practical terms, I look at least 7 years younger, with far healthier skin than I’ve ever had! The response I’ve received from people has been fantastic. Naturally, it feels great to have friends and family compliment me so effusively. But the part I’m most grateful for is what it has done for me on the inside; the phenomenal confidence boost I’ve received has been life changing! I feel like the world sees me entirely differently now, I feel a real “command presence” in a room! And I owe it all to Dr. Bansal.

During the Elite MD Laser Resurfacing, lasers produce an intense beam of bright light of one color (wavelength). Different lasers are selected to treat different parts of the skin (hair, blood vessels) at different depths. New laser systems are extremely accurate and targeted, providing enhanced results and improved safety.

Elite MD Laser Resurfacing

Laser light can gently produce a controlled injury that leads to just enough of trauma to encourage new skin cell growth. In short, old skin cells are removed to make way for new skin cells. This offers an effective and non-surgical way to treat wrinkles, scars and blemishes.

Elite MD Laser Resurfacing can performed in the Elite MD office to achieve the following:

  • Erase fine lines and wrinkles of the face
  • Smooth and tighten eyelid skin
  • Lessen the appearance of wrinkles around the eyes (“crow’s feet”)
  • Soften “pucker” marks and “frown lines”
  • Remove pigmented spots, such as age spots.
  • Improve the appearance of scars
  • Improve the overall tone and textures of the skin

Elite MD Laser Resurfacing is often combined with other dermatological procedures, such as dermal fillers or Botox, to maximize cosmetic results.

Some of the lasers used for the Elite MD Laser Resurfacing include the Carbon Dioxide (CO2) laser and the Erbium: YAG Laser.

These lasers are sometimes referred to as “ablative” lasers because they heat up and remove the top layer of skin.  This is different from “non-ablative” lasers that target the deeper layers of the skin and leave the top layer intact. These non-ablative lasers stimulate collagen growth and tighten underlying skin to improve skin tone and remove fine lines and signs of skin damage. Because the top layer of skin remains undamaged by non-ablative lasers, there is rapid healing with almost no “downtime.”

Your Elite MD physician will recommend a laser treatment using ablative and/or non-ablative lasers depending on your skin type (light or dark), the area of the body being treated, and your stated cosmetic needs.

Elite MD Laser Resurfacing is uncomfortable and your physician will discuss with you the options for pain control.

Treated areas usually appear red or pink and may be covered with a fine crust for several days. These areas should be kept moist with ointment or surgical bandages for the first few days following treatment. The treated areas must be protected from sunlight after the procedure. Sunscreen can be used after healing is complete and cosmetics can usually be applied after 10-14 days.

Significant complications are rare, and the risk of scarring is low.
