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.
"Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin always made himself available to answer any questions I had. His bedside manner was great, and he called me personally when I got home. - - I do not know where to begin.....I originally went for a breast augmentation, and ended up getting a Tummy Tuck because of how completely comfortable I was with Dr. Sorokin. He makes you feel so very important, and in no way does he pressure you or try to convince you one way or the other. His staff also is very friendly and answered all my questions before, during and after no matter how many times I called. I had did my research, and this office felt right for me. The day of my procedure I was nervous because I have a fear of going under but Alisha was very reassuring, she and Nurse Jenn were amazing. Well, I was surprised to have no pain when I woke up, I said to myself he uses the best pain meds, the ride home was pain free so I expected to be doubled over by the next day.....that was not the case. My pain level never went over a 2 and by the third day I was only taking Tylenol. This was MY experience, I know everyone's pain tolerance is different, but the worst thing you can do is watch YouTube testimonials, please don't make that mistake, they have you thinking their dying!!!! I never felt him taking the drain tube out when the time came. If anyone is thinking about having this procedure, this is the ABSOLUTE BEST PLACE to have this done. Dr. Sorokin is AMAZING( he has the softest hands ever) and so is his staff, they make you feel like family. I look FABULOUS and it's only been a couple weeks so I can't wait to see the "final look" I am beyond pleased with this journey, and couldn't ask for a better result, I got my pretty back. Also, he called me personally to check up on me the evening of my procedure, that's a Dr. that cares about his patients!!!!"- P. / RealSelf / Jul 17, 2016

"Dr. Sorokin is the best of the best! From my consultation to my 6 week check up, he was truly amazing each and every visit. Every question I had was answered in the office in great detail. Every silly question I asked via email was answered within 24 hours. Dr. Sorokin and the nursing staff are the best. They are so friendly, honest, and knowledgable. I researched many doctors and I am so happy I chose Dr. Sorokin. I love how I look and feel. I made the right decision- as I said above, they are the best of the best."- L.S. / Google / Jun 07, 2016

"I had been researching breast augmentations in the Philadelphia area for months when I made an appointment with Dr. Sorokin. Him and his staff were incredible and made me feel very comfortable. His staff worked with me as I tried to decide on an implant size, and were very patient with me even when I changed my mind a few times. My surgery was a breeze and I recovered SO quickly. I am so satisfied with Dr. Sorokin and would recommend him to everyone!"- C.M. / Google / May 10, 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.
