Skin Rejuvenation Trend from New York’s Haute Doc

The key to your youth might actually be right here on Park Avenue. Celebrated beauty doc, formally known as Dr. Amiya Prasad, shared his latest secret to looking young without surgery: the Micro Fractional CO2 Laser.

The latest in skin rejuvenation, Dr. Prasad calls the Micro Fractional CO2 Laser “an impressive solution.” With a single treatment, you can say goodbye to fine and coarse wrinkles, raised or unsightly scars (such as from acne), dilated pores, uneven pigmentation and sun-damaged skin. It treats the deeper layers of skin, thus stimulating collagen growth, which yields firmer and more glowing skin. A big plus: the downtime is only a few days, so you can do it on Thursday and be back to your normal lifestyle by Monday morning.

Recently Dr. Prasad, a super-specialist in eyelid and facelift surgeries, became one of a few surgeons in New York City, and in the U.S. for that matter, who has refined the use of the Micro Fractional CO2 Laser. Using this new laser, Dr. Prasad has been very successful in helping patients who are not yet ready for a facelift. “Since the laser rejuvenates by improving the tone and luster of the skin, it can refresh the face by leveling out small to medium sized wrinkles,” says the good doctor, who has been featured on both the small screen and in numerous print publications. For patients who have undergone facelift surgery within the past few years, this laser treatment is a great way to obtain a refreshed look without having another surgical procedure. Another very important application of laser therapy is to rejuvenate the hands to match the rejuvenated face.

This laser isn’t science fiction. It’s the future, and it provides real results, right now. Look for Dr. Prasad’s upcoming book The Fine Art of Looking Younger in the spring of 2010.
