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.
"From the moment I met Dr.Sorakin I knew I wanted him to do my breast augmentation surgery! He is very patient and understanding, answering all questions and concerns. I went to several other doctor consults and was concerned I would never have full "round" breasts, but Dr.Sorakin assured me those results would be possible and I would be in the best care. After surgery I was in very little pain and back to work in 4 days ! I am extremely happy with my results ! They look better than I ever would have imagined! I would definitely recommend Dr.Sorakin!!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 30, 2016
"It has been about four months since I got my BA, and I could not be happier!!! They are absolutely perfect. Dr Sorokin and his team are absolutely amazing. From consultation to my very last post op visit I could not have asked for more out of them. They were precise, and patient with me since I was such a scardy cat! Cannot wait until summer thanks to Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery! :)"- C.D. / Google / Apr 12, 2016
"the best doctor, staff, and experience! Cherry Hill, NJ - I just recently had a breast augmentation with Dr. Sorokin of Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery and this is my first real surgery...Let me say, it was the very best experience from beginning to end and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go to anyone other than Dr. Sorokin. Both him and his staff were lovely, warm, inviting, encouraging and excited for me - which is exactly how one should feel when going in for an elective procedure! There aren't enough positive things to say about his practice! He even called to check on me afterwards, which I appreciated, and is very communicative when needing to ask questions/advice, etc. All his girls there are wonderful and made me feel so at ease before my surgery, and after. I still love my card and cup I received at my follow-up - that personal touch makes a world of difference for me! There isn't anyone else I would go to for any future procedures and I've been recommending him to everyone. #teamsorokin haha!"- M. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2016
"Dr. Sorokin and his entire staff provided me with excellent medical treatment before, during and after my surgery. I am very pleased with my results and would recommend him to anyone considering having plastic surgery. Dr Sorokin is highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable. His care of his patients makes him unlike any doctor I've ever been to. The entire staff at his practice also needs to be recognized for being so caring and attentive. You won't find a more qualified practice!!!"- T.R. / Google / Apr 04, 2016
"The most important thing for me is Doctor-Patient relationship. Dr. Sorokin is the most available doctor I have ever met. You are always able to communicate with him and he is always quick to answer any questions that you may have even when you are not in his office! He gets back to you immediately. He made me feel at ease from the moment I met him assuring me that I could achieve the result I was looking for with no problem. Other surgeons had made me nervous and question whether or not I could actually ever get my desired outcome. Dr. Sorokin helped me feel better about myself and helped me achieve my desired look. I can't thank him enough for his patience (I ask a lot of questions), his knowledge, and his kindness. He speaks to you and explains things to you in human terms. If you're looking for a quality doctor that can make you feel beautiful again, he's the one. The girls that work in the office are also one of a kind. Very knowledgable and professional. Great staff.

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.
