Laser Resurfacing

Improve texture and tone while reversing sun damage and hyperpigmentation.


5 unique laser resurfacing technologies for every imperfection.

At Aesthetic Center of New Jersey, we offer a wide variety of lasers designed to treat a wide variety of skin concerns. From ablative to non-ablative lasers, we’re equipped to treat many types of skin imperfections, such as wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. Our state-of-the-art lasers harness the power of light to rejuvenate and resurface the skin for smoother texture and more even tone.

Minimize fine lines and wrinkles with laser resurfacing.

Lines and wrinkles are caused by a variety of age-related factors, including loss of collagen and elastin, dry skin, thinning skin, and oxidative damage. Laser resurfacing is a safe, proven method to reduce lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of collagen for a more youthful appearance.


Laser for Hyperpigmentation

Sun exposure, aging, hormones, and genetics can all contribute to hyperpigmentation of the skin. Thankfully, laser treatments are highly effective for reducing or eliminating hyperpigmentation.

Laser treatments improve hyperpigmentation by emitting concentrated beams of light that is absorbed by either the excess melanin (pigment) in the hyperpigmented areas or the water in your skin cells. The absorption of laser energy generates heat and causes damage to the targeted cells. This damage prompts the body’s natural healing response, leading to the gradual removal of damaged cells and a subsequent lightening of the hyperpigmentation.

We have a variety of lasers to choose from, depending on factors such as the condition of your skin, your goals, and your lifestyle. LaseMD Ultra is one of our favorite lasers for treating general hyperpigmentation due to its ability to produce dramatic results with minimal downtime.

Laser for Sun Spots

Sun spots are perhaps the most common and noticeable sign of sun exposure. Formally called solar lentigos, sunspots are often brown or tan, making some of them look like freckles. Others may be much larger and deeper.

Lasers are a highly effective option for reducing or eliminating sun spots. Laser treatments reduce sun spots by emitting a concentrated beam of light that is absorbed by either the excess melanin (pigment) in the sun spot or the water in your skin cells, generating heat and causing damage to the targeted cells. This damage prompts the body’s natural healing response, leading to the gradual removal of damaged cells and a subsequent lightening of the sun spots over time, resulting in a more even skin tone. 

LaseMD Ultra and Q-Switched lasers are two of our top choices for treating sun spots. These lasers operate on totally different principles, and therefore are effective on different conditions. Depending on the condition of your skin, the type of sun spots, your goals, and your lifestyle, our experienced laser experts will select the best laser for your needs.

Laser for Sun Damage

Sun damage is a common concern for many individuals, expecially those who have spent time in the sun over the years. While sun exposure has many health benefits, excessive exposure to UV rays can accelerate the rate of skin aging and lead to a range of issues, including sun spots, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles.

Laser treatments, either on their own or in conjunction with other treatments, can help reverse signs of sun damage. Effective treatments for sun damage involve lasers that can target pigmentation to reduce sun spots, stimulate collagen to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and accelerate skin turnover to improve overall texture and tone.

While some lasers can accomplish more than one of these goals simultaneously, others are geared toward one specific task. LaseMD Ultra, Erbium:YAG, and Q-Switched lasers are three of our top choices for treating sun damage. These lasers all operate on different principles, and therefore are effective on different concerns. In some cases, a strategic combination of two or more of these lasers may be used to treat sun damage. Our experienced laser experts will consider several factors to select the best laser(s) for your needs.

Improve scars and stretch marks with laser.

Our laser skin resurfacing techniques can dramatically improve the appearance of scars and stretch marks. The laser’s energy stimulates the skin under the scar or stretch mark to stimulate new collagen and remodel the area to more closely resemble the surrounding skin.

Featured Laser Technologies

LaseMD Ultra

LaseMD Ultra is a revolutionary laser technology that can reverse sun damage, reduce hyperpigmentation, improve skin texure, and minimize the appearance of fine lines and enlarged pores. This FDA-approved laser works by producing thousands of tiny columns of microscopic treatment zones in your skin. The unique energy delivery patterns and high energy output makes Ultra a versatile, highly effective laser that requires minimal to no downtime.


Erbium:YAG is an ablative laser that provides a variety of skin rejuvenation benefits. Erbium lasers work by removing old, damaged skin, triggering the formation of collagen and new tissue, resulting in fresher, more youthful looking skin. More aggressive than non-ablative lasers, this laser requires about 4-6 days of healing time. Erbium is a great option for those with fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.

Spectra MDF

Anyone who has struggled with acne scars knows how difficult they can be to address. Introducing Spectra MDF, an innovative, minimal-to-no-downtime laser that revolutionizes the treatment of acne scars. This unique technology uses laser energy to smooth and level the surface of the skin. We’re proud to be one of the first in northern New Jersey to offer this groundbreaking treatment.


Q-Switched lasers are a great approach for removing pigmented lesions, such as sun spots, from the skin. These lasers deliver short pulses (a billionth of a second) of intense laser energy, fragmenting and removing the pigment. The energy is precisely targeted for minimal disruption of surrounding skin, which means no downtime. Q-switched lasers are a great choice for spot treatments.
