Introducing the Cortex™ Laser Skin Resurfacing system. Dr. Joseph Guarino is pleased to offer this new anti-aging treatment to our Hamilton NJ medical spa.
The Cortex is one of the most advanced aesthetic lasers on the market, offering an enormous amount of flexibility so that Dr. Guarino can precisely tailor your treatment.
Cortex combines CO2 and Erbium laser energy. The CO2 laser is used to treat areas with deep wrinkles, while the Erbium laser is used to treat fine lines, sun damage, and other delicate areas.
After treatment, the upper layers of skin will peel away to reveal new, healthy skin with less sun damage and wrinkles.
Instead of affecting the entire surface of the skin, the fractional laser applies a grid-like pattern to the treatment area. Microlaser spots are surrounded by untreated tissue, accelerating healing times and stimulating collagen production.
Fractional wound healing results in rapid replacement of the surface of the skin for textural improvement as well as collagen remodeling in the deeper dermis for wrinkle reduction.

I had a wonderful experience with laser removal here! DermaCosmedica has a really positive atmosphere, and the equipment they used for laser was definitely less painful than any other laser hair removal I've done. The place is clean, quiet, and…Alexis C.
Laser Skin Resurfacing What to Expect
A full face laser skin resurfacing treatment takes about 30 minutes. Rapid bursts of laser energy are targeted to the treatment area. Some patients describe the sensation as a warm, sharp feeling with an immediate tightening of the skin.*
After treatment, your skin may appear as though it is sunburned and feel slightly sore. Depending on the depth of your treatment, downtime could last several days to a week.*
Dr. Guarino may recommend topical anesthetics and cooling devices to reduce discomfort during and after the treatment.
Downtimes will vary depending on the depth of treatment. Typically patients take several days to a full week to fully recover. Patients may experience redness and tenderness as though the face was sunburnt after reatment.
