Fractional Skin Resurfacing Q&A

What is fractional skin resurfacing?

Fractional skin resurfacing allows Dr. Amir to precisely target specific trouble spots on your face without damaging your surrounding tissue. The laser beam of light travels down through columns of the damaged skin cells you want to be replaced, heating them up and destroying them along the way. Dr. Amir can control the location and depth of the laser to ensure that he only treats what’s needed, leaving your healthy skin cells intact.


Patients with lighter skin tones are ideal candidates for fractional skin resurfacing. Candidates must have no active acne or skin infections. Excellent candidates have realistic expectations from their laser skin resurfacing treatment. Candidates must have no scarring or healing issues.


During your consultation, talk to us about your expectations regarding the results of fractional skin resurfacing treatment. Let us know if you are taking any medications or supplements. We will evaluate your medical history and the condition of your skin.

We will recommend the most ideal treatment plan to achieve your goals. You will be given skincare instructions to prepare your skin for the procedure. Do not hesitate to raise any concerns regarding the procedure.

What does fractional skin resurfacing correct?

Dr. Amir recommends fractional laser resurfacing for a number of issues, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin imperfections around the mouth and eyes
  • Sun and age spots
What is the procedure like?
Before Dr. Amir begins, he applies a topical anesthetic to the area he’s treating. During your procedure, which he performs in his office, you may feel a sensation much like a rubber band snapping against your skin. There’s no cutting or blood during the procedure, and Dr. Amir ensures that you’re as comfortable as possible. The procedure typically lasts less than an hour, and you’re free to go home afterward.

Patients may experience mild sunburn, redness, and swelling after the fractional skin resurfacing procedure. In some cases, blisters and yellow liquid can be observed during and after the procedure. Patients will be advised not to scratch the treated skin area in order to avoid leaving scar marks. The skin will become dry and peel a week after the procedure.

When will I see results?

One of the reasons many of Dr. Amir’s patients like fractional skin resurfacing is that there is little downtime and minimal pain. Because of the precision of this laser technique, Dr. Amir only treats the specific areas of concern, allowing the surrounding tissue to provide critical support throughout your recovery.

 Your results will be gradual as your skin works to rebuild itself. As your skin naturally flushes out the destroyed skin cells, new ones grow in their stead, aided by increased collagen and elastin production. Typically, a month after your treatment is when you’ll begin to see optimal results.

How many treatments do I need?

While every situation is different, Dr. Amir can often achieve your goals in just one treatment, especially when it comes to correcting minor imperfections. After reviewing the areas you’d like treated, Dr. Amir gives you a clear picture of what to expect and whether you may need more than one treatment. To learn more about laser skin resurfacing, call City Dermatology Skin Institute in Bensalem, PA, or schedule a consultation using the online booking tool.

Follow-up appointments may be scheduled to assess the result of the procedure. If the patient’s goals have not been achieved after one treatment, an additional treatment session may be scheduled to achieve optimal results.

How Much Does Fractional Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The price of fractional skin resurfacing depends on the size of the treatment area and whether multiple treatment sessions are needed to resolve your concerns. Once Dr. Amir has developed your customized treatment plan, the cost and details of your procedure will be reviewed with you.

Obsessed with this place. Everyone is so nice and accommodating. Dr Amir is amazing! His attention to detail is incredible. I’ve had fillers done in the past but this is the first time I had anyone “map at my face” so to speak in order to place the injections in the proper area. Couldn’t be happier with the results and I’m looking forward to going back for Botox in and few weeks! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Excellent experience here! Staff is very nice and personable, Dr. Amir has a wonderful bedside manner. He takes the time to educate you in your concerns and walk you through the process. I was able to have a few of my concerns addressed right away at my first visit! I will definitely continue to see Dr. Amir, and refer my friends!

Dr. Amir is by far the best dermatologist you could ask for! The care and attention to detail given by this practitioner is simply superb. I would recommend this practice to absolutely anyone looking for the best. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing. Thank you Dr. Amir!
