My wife and I went into Dr. Roger Koreen's office to get our skin checked and a few problem areas treated. We did not have any skin doctor and others we tried had appointments that were over 6 months away. We were pleased to get an appointment not too far in advance. When we got there the office was pleasant and the people nice. Dr Koreen was very friendly and took his time in caring for us. Later, I came back for further treatment and again it was a pleasant experience. I thanked him for his knowledge and ability to help me out. Thanks Dr. Koreen!Marianne WMore reviews
Unfortunately, I have had many experiences with doctors. My father had recommended me to Dr. Koreen about 15 years ago. First you will be greeted by very friendly and warm receptionists. The waiting room is extremely clean and comfortable with plenty of seating, magazines and TV’s. The wait time is always reasonable (10-15mins) considering Dr. Koreen always spends quality time for exam and questions (never rushed). He always educates you on the most modern treatments and offering the best options. Dr. Koreen now treats my teenage kids after many years of superior treatment and second to none care. I strongly trust and highly recommend Dr. Koreen and his staff.Thomas MMore reviews

Cosmetic laser treatments and laser skin resurfacing offered in Huntington, NY
By Dr. Roger Koreen
The aging process, environmental toxins, and lifestyle choices can cause stress to the skin leading to scars, lines, wrinkles, or generally unhealthy skin. Laser skin resurfacing is an option to rejuvenate the skin, giving patients a healthy, youthful glow. Laser treatments precisely and effectively reduce the appearance of skin imperfections. In Huntington, NY, Dr. Roger Koreen of the Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Center offers laser treatments to help patients look their best.
Advancements in medical and cosmetic technology have brought about improved laser procedures, which allow patients to look more youthful without the need for invasive surgery. With laser skin resurfacing, the layers of the skin are precisely removed. As the body works to repair and heal itself, new skin cells form. These cells have newer, more youthful collagen. The new skin forms a tighter surface which reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. This treatment also helps remove unwanted pigmentation, brown spots, or age spots. The result is smoother, brighter skin.
As the laser targets the skin, the body works to heal itself. In the process, new collagen production is stimulated. Collagen is one of the building blocks of the skin. It is a fibrous protein that gives the skin its structure and support. As we age, collagen is broken down, making us look older. Rebuilding the body’s collagen is an important part of restoring natural beauty.

Age, sun exposure, the environment, and lifestyle choices impact the health of the skin. As our largest and most visible organ, it is important to protect and care for the skin. Cosmetic laser treatments can be part of a skin maintenance regimen to keep your skin glowing and healthy. Laser skin resurfacing can be performed on men and women of all skin types.
A consultation is required prior to laser treatments. This gives patients a chance to discuss their questions, concerns, and goals. Your physician can determine if you are a candidate for cosmetic laser treatments. Laser skin resurfacing helps reverse the signs of aging. Old, damaged skin cells are eliminated, allowing the body’s natural healing to kick in and produce new, healthy collagen. Lasers can be used on nearly any area of the body. For resurfacing, commonly treated areas include the face, neck, chest, and hands. Small areas such as wrinkles around the eyes may be addressed or larger areas such as the entire face may be treated. A treatment plan is customized based on the patient’s unique needs.
Prior to your procedure, your physician may recommend avoiding medications such as aspirin or ibuprofen. Laser skin resurfacing is an outpatient procedure and is performed in the office. The length of the treatment depends upon the size of the area being treated. On the day of the procedure, the treatment area is numbed first to ensure patient comfort during the procedure. The laser creates tiny wounds in the skin to trigger a healing response. As the area heals, old skin cells are eliminated, and new collagen is produced. After the procedure, patients are given instructions on how to care for their skin. Side effects such as redness and swelling are common. The skin may also feel itchy for a few days. As it heals, the new skin will begin to shine through. Remember to protect your skin with sunscreen after it heals.
Benefits and results
Laser skin resurfacing improves skin tone and texture to produce smoother, younger-looking skin. When performed under the direction of a medical professional, the treatment has minimal risks. It is safe and effective.
There are a number of benefits to laser skin resurfacing treatments.
This cosmetic laser treatment is capable of addressing lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, age spots, and brown spots.
Results are immediate. However, the skin continues to improve as it heals. Full results are seen about two to three months after the final treatment. At this point, the new collagen and elastin have replaced the damaged tissue.
Results include smoother skin, improved tone and texture, smaller pore size, and younger-looking skin.
