The outer layer of the skin bears the brunt of the outside world. Aging and sun exposure can result in wrinkles, discolorations, and uneven skin tone. However, fresh and healthy skin is waiting just underneath the surface of the face. Harsh textures, discolorations, and irregularities are only a mask covering healthier facial skin. At Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery, the SmartSkin fractional CO2 laser can correct these and related concerns with one simple treatment. Board-certified Cherry, Hill, NJ plastic surgeon, Dr. Evan Sorokin, personally performs laser skin rejuvenation in his New Jersey office to help the skin reflect each patient’s inner vibrancy. SmartSkin treatments are safe and effective for most parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. Dr. Sorokin uses the SmartSkin laser treatment because he finds that it is especially effective for:
- Softening lines, creases, and wrinkles
- Improving uneven pigmentation, age spots, freckles, sun spots, and melisma
- Providing effective skin resurfacing
- Restoring youthful skin tone through increased collagen production
- Shrinking enlarged pores
- Erasing scars from surgery, acne, chicken pox, and stretch marks
During/After the Surgery@headingTag>
The SmartSkin laser treats a fraction of the skin surface with tiny, pinpoint columns of laser energy. This technology does not impact adjacent areas, resulting in a faster recovery period. While most people experience only slight discomfort during these treatments, a topical anesthetic is available if the patient has any concerns. The length of treatment depends on the condition of the skin and the areas being addressed. Dr. Sorokin can usually treat the entire face in about 15-20 minutes, then patients are able to go home. Patients should expect the skin to feel warm, look slightly puffy, and seem mildly sunburned for the first few days. Depending on the level of the treatment, patients will be able to return to their normal routine within 2-7 days. The improvements will be most noticeable after the skin has renewed itself and collagen production has increased, which can take several weeks to occur.

"Sculpsure Treatment for Stomach Fat - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin has an amazing practice and a wonderful staff. - - I had SculpSure done on April 13 2016 to my stomach. It was a fast treatment and didn't hurt that much. It felt like a deep warming sensation. I was sore for a couple days after the treatment but not too bad. It felt like I did a lot of situps but it made me confident that something was actually happening. I started seeing improvement after 4 weeks and now I am over the moon about the results! I am thinking about going back and getting a second treatment since they said I could actually get more than 25% reduction if I do more treatments. I am really excited! Dr. Sorokin has an amazing practice in Cherry Hill, NJ. 5 stars all around!"- B. / RealSelf / Aug 09, 2016

Laser skin rejuvenation treatments can cost between $500-$4,000 depending on the size of the area being treated and the strength of the treatment. Dr. Sorokin will be able to give a better estimate and break down of the costs after developing a treatment plan with the patient during the initial consultation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs@headingTag>
Many patients choose complementary procedures to enhance their fractional laser treatments, such as one of Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery’s medical spa services. Also, many patients who visit for plastic surgery choose SmartSkin to enhance their results. Dr. Sorokin can discuss the wide range of treatments for beautiful, youthful skin during the consultation.
To help pinpoint fine wrinkles, discolorations, and enlarged pores, Dr. Sorokin uses the VISIA Complexion Analysis system, which takes an image of the face and analyzes where skin problems like wrinkles, discolorations, and even bacteria occur. Using this advanced technology, Dr. Sorokin will customize each patient’s skin care treatment plan to meet their needs.
Discomfort & Risks?@headingTag>
Some discomfort should also be expected, and can be controlled with over the counter oral medication. While complications are rare, patients can minimize potential problems by carefully following the post-operative directions.
During this procedure the laser erases the outer layers of the skin that have been damaged by age, sun, acne, wrinkles, or pigmentation problems. Destruction of the older layers of skin prompts the body to generate a fresh, new layer of skin cells.
During the consultation, Dr. Sorokin will help patients decide how many treatments will be needed to achieve the patient’s goals. If the patient is concerned about downtime, it may be better to have a few, gentler treatments. If the patient wants the greatest improvements as soon as possible, a single stronger treatment that will require longer downtime is possible. By consulting with Dr. Sorokin about the best professional skin care products, patients will have improvements that can last for years.
