Skin resurfacing with a laser at ZO Skin Centre® in Newport Beach, CA is a noninvasive, aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to eliminate dead and damaged skin cells. Selecting the right laser for the skin on your face, neck, chest, or hands, such as the Clear + Brilliant® Permea® or the Vbeam® Laser, will allow you to address:
- Brown spots
- Fine lines
- Pigmentation problems
- Unbalanced skin tone
Sometimes known as a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is considered an ideal procedure for people who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Based on the needs of your skin, this treatment will be customized for powerful, impressive results.
The Clear + Brilliant® Permea® Laser handpiece is added to laser skin resurfacing to provide you with the best results for correcting the way your skin feels. It can also help with permeability, which means that products will infuse into your skin easier than before.
If you have a dermatological condition, like rosacea, face and leg veins, warts, psoriasis, and/or a pigmentation issue on your face and/or neck, you may consider a Vbeam® Laser treatment. The Vbeam® Laser is a nonablative laser that rejuvenates the skin with beams from a pulsed dye laser that will not harm the surrounding skin that is not being treated.
"I drove from Phoenix to see Dr Kappel, no regrets, she’s amazing. I found her on YouTube at the beginning of the pandemic in 2020, and just watched her videos. Then I followed her IG, and loved all the info she shared...for free. It took a year of following her to finally feel ready to seek out laser treatment for myself, so I did consults in Phoenix and asked all the questions she answers in her social media. And honestly, the laser techs were willing to share what they knew, but couldn’t answer all my questions, and the dermatologists were not as open to questions. I just couldn’t bring myself to let a non MD point a laser near my eyes, and I didn’t like that I wasn’t comfortable with the MDs. And one MD wanted me to go under anesthesia for a fraxel but wouldn’t talk to me about less intensive lasers. That is a crazy amount of risk for an elective procedure! Anyway, I decided I was done looking close to home and scheduled a consult and a next day laser appt with Dr Kappel. I got a full face fraxel (no anesthesia, lol) and asked her my skin questions, I even texted the office a few days later with questions and they got back to me. I’m anxious and a bit of a control freak, and Dr Kappel’s credentials and social media really helped to put me at ease. Everyone in her office took the time to make me feel comfortable (even though they were busy busy busy). I’m going back and highly recommend."- M.M. / Yelp / Apr 01, 2021
"I’d like to thank Dr Aaron Kosins for the rhinoplasty surgery he’s done it to me, it’s a transformation and life changer, I knew in advance that I have a bit tricky situation and I’ve done a thorough research before booking with him, and exactly went for what I anticipated, highly professional. Also for his clinic staff are very helpful and prompt, they’ve been following my case step by step and call me almost daily before and after the surgery. And thanks a lot for the Newport Beach Surgery Center which was really comfortable."- M.A. / Google / Apr 01, 2021
"Dr. Kosins is an incredibly skilled surgeon. I traveled from the Midwest to have a rhinoplasty with Dr. Kosins after having consultations with 4 top rhinoplasty surgeons all over the US. The main reason I chose Dr. Kosins is the consistency of his outcomes. I carefully evaluated each surgeon’s before and after photos over time and saw Dr. Kosins not only made noses look better from the side, but every angle. I read hundreds of reviews before making my decision, here are a few key highlights: My Result- Excellent! My nose no longer plunges and is refined from every angle. Despite being a big change in my opinion, even my most discerning friends and co-workers have no idea. Cost- Very reasonable for the area and level of skill. Based on the other quotes I received, a high quality nose job is similar in price no matter where you go. Experience- Judy (nurse) is without question the one of the most supportive positive person I have ever met. If every person had just 10% of the energy and genuine kindness Judy has, the world would be a much nicer place. I kept seeing her name in all of the reviews, and it’s true- she’s more amazing than I can articulate in a review :) Dr. Kosins- Aside from his exceptional skill, he truly cares. During my follow-up appointment he’s excited to see the result and concerned with my happiness. I recommend following him on Insta as he posts tons of patient preop and postop videos and you can really see his skill exemplified. Out of Town Patient- I had my surgery during the COVID pandemic (hopefully when you are reading this the pandemic is over!), so travel was a bit tougher. If you are coming in from out of town I recommend really planning out your trip to make recovery stress free. Ask for a list of what you need for recovery, so you can buy it ahead of time. Recovery- There was no pain BUT I couldn’t breathe through my nose at all the first week until the splint was removed. This was the worst part. I worked from my AirBNB a few days during this period, which was tough since my voice was extremely congested. I recommend NOT scheduling conference calls during your recovery if you don’t want to tell your co-workers you had a nose job :) Overall I emphatically recommend Dr. Kosins . His skill, genuine commitment to exceptional results, nurse Judy, and overall experience made it a great choice for an exceptional nose."- C.G. / Google / Mar 07, 2021
"When it comes to choosing a good plastic surgeon, they are a dime a dozen, hello! It’s Newport Beach! But when it comes to finding a GREAT plastic surgeon, there’s only one man for the job, Dr. Aaron Kosins. Dr. Kosins is detail oriented, realistic and genuinely cares about each person that walks through his door. He listens to each desire you have and gives you an honest expectation & then exceeds every dream you could’ve ever dreamed for yourself. But it doesn’t stop there. His entire staff is attentive, kind & understanding. There will never be a doctor I trust more. Thank you Dr. Kosins & team for making my dreams come true!"- S.A. / Google / Feb 12, 2021
"I highly recommend Dr. Stefani Kappel for cosmetic procedures. I have been going to her for Botox and lip fillers the past couple years and I am sticking with her! I have shopped around and been to her competitors in Newport Beach and she is hands down the best. She will give you the most natural results and does everything very painlessly with minimal hassle or downtime. No numbing cream needed for my Botox and lip filler and I was not bruised at all, after having come off blood thinners the past year. She knows what she’s doing and her sweet personality in combination with her skills makes her the best! And her prices are very competitive with all surrounding competitors for the same services, even lower in some cases. Her new office is easy to find on the corner of PCH and Avocado and is beautifully remodeled inside and clean and they follow all covid protocol. Free parking as well. Look no further!"- L.A. / Yelp / Jan 13, 2021
You have several factors to take into consideration when deciding which laser skin resurfacing treatment is best for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is designed for anyone who is unsatisfied with their general complexion. If you see sun damage, age spots, acne scars, lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness concerns, laser skin resurfacing procedures may be needed to address these cosmetic flaws. They are also wonderful for men or women who have a rough texture, scaly patches, or other skin surface problems on the face, neck, chest, and hands.
What to expect
A laser skin resurfacing treatment usually lasts less than an hour (20 – 60 minutes) right here in our office in Newport Beach, CA. We will take you back to a treatment room to prepare you for your session and ask that you relax and recline in one of our treatment chairs. One of our ZO® skin care professionals will thoroughly clean your skin and shield your eyes with protective eye coverings. Lighter skin resurfacing treatments may allow you to only need local anesthesia to numb the skin before the session begins. However, if you are having an in-depth laser procedure, sedation may be required. Throughout the resurfacing, the handpiece will pass over your skin. You may feel the heat of the laser followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. This innovative energy targeting your skin is designed to remove damaged and dead skin cells while promoting new collagen production.
Your treated skin may look pink or red once the session is over. There may be some swelling and irritation. These symptoms subside in a few days and the skin peeling process will occur over a 3 – 5-day period for a lighter resurfacing. A deeper laser skin resurfacing recovery time will take longer (several weeks). The treatment sections may be protected with dressings and the swelling, irritation, and burning symptoms may be stronger. Pain medication can be prescribed to lessen these symptoms.
Keep in mind that your skin will naturally crust, flake, and peel off as a part of the healing process. It's crucial to avoid accelerating the recovery process. Protect your skin. After the peeling is finished, your skin should feel smoother while also appearing clearer, younger, and rejuvenated. We can also provide you with suggestions for at-home skin care products to use for laser-treated skin.
