A laser is a highly focused beam of pure light energy which may be used to carefully remove areas of sun-damaged skin (laser resurfacing). This procedure has revolutionized the field of cosmetic plastic surgery and treatment of aging skin over the past decade. The main advantage of laser resurfacing over older resurfacing techniques (such as chemical peels and dermabrasion) is the precision with which the laser works. The Naficy Center uses a number of different lasers for facial resurfacing. The Derma K laser, which is a blend of CO2 and Erbium lasers, is capable of removing a layer of skin as thin as a fingerprint. This laser combines the advantages of Erbium and CO2 lasers into one exciting laser. The Naficy Center also uses traditional CO2 lasers, which require a longer recovery period, but are also able to produce more dramatic results. With the Derma K laser, most of our patients are ready to be back at work or social activities within one week, whereas with the CO2 lasers up to 10 days of recovery may be required. Another exciting option is fractional resurfacing using the CO2 laser, which combines the advantages of more dramatic results offered by the CO2 with the more rapid healing time of Erbium. Recovery time for fractional resurfacing is often less than a week. . . . read more.

Veins are the blood vessels responsible for returning blood to the heart. Within our legs, the veins have to bring the blood up the body and against gravity. In order for veins to return this blood to the heart they require valves. These one-way valves are very thin, yet are able to hold up against the pressure of gravity pushing down on the blood against the valve. . . . read more.
