What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing at Ben Schultz, M.D., ABPS Certified, is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of energy to exfoliate damaged surface skin layers. The treatment is performed for correcting facial wrinkles and lines and for minimizing skin flaws such as acne scars, pigmentation, and other flaws. Also referred to as a laser peel, fractional skin resurfacing is a great facial treatment for patients who want softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the needs of the skin type, the treatment may be customized accordingly. There is some downtime required with most laser skin resurfacing procedures. Any questions or concerns may be discussed with our team in Baltimore, MD, during the assessment and consultation.

"How do I even begin to say how wonderful Dr. Ben Schultz is … he is simply the best physician/surgeon I’ve ever encountered! He is extremely knowledgeable, cares deeply about his patients, and has an impeccable bedside manner! He provided excellent care before, during, and after my nasal surgery. He is very attentive and always answered all of my questions. I know he has several patients, but he made me feel like I was his only one! I had a few complications after the surgery and he was very accommodating and understanding. It's rare to find a physician so caring and concerned about my health!"- K.W. / Google / Jun 02, 2023
"Right from the beginning I knew I would be in good hands with Dr. Ben. I was really nervous about my surgery but he put my mind at ease. From initially meeting him he was friendly, compassionate and easy to talk to. He was very thorough and answered any concerns I had. You can tell he truly cares for his patients. He would always check up on me to see how I was doing and was available when I needed him. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done for me. Dr.Ben is truly an amazing surgeon!"- E.H. / Google / Apr 17, 2023
"Wow...where should I start??!! I was diagnosed with breast cancer July of 2022. My GYN referred me to Drs. Ben and Michael Schultz (I will leave a separate review for Dr. Michael). From the time of my first consultation until today, Dr. Ben has been a God send. He is meticulous, and set realistic expectations. He texted me daily after my surgery to ensure I was feeling ok and healing properly. He did an amazing job on my reconstruction. EVERY doctor and staff person that has seen my results say, "Wow, your surgeon did an amazing job!" I usually question EVERYTHING I am told. However, he provided information in a way that was clear and concise. and.... best of all... his work proved exactly what he said he was going to do. Thanks Dr. Ben! ~Chevel God Speed!"- C.V. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr. Ben is amazing at what he does. And, amazingly, he gets back to me immediately with every question and concern. He always has a smile on his face to put you at ease. He and his father are the kindest doctors I’ve ever dealt with."- R.L. / Google / Mar 24, 2023
"Dr Ben, I can’t even put in words how appreciative I am of this man. I’ve been wanting a reduction for over 8 years now, I was at the point where the size literally weighed me down. He sympathized with me so much immediately and set himself apart from other surgeons I’ve met with by not downplaying my pain. I was so nervous about my surgery but he reassured me at every single step, he gave me his personal number for any post op questions which made me feel even better about choosing him. Every time I had a question, I waited no more than 30 mins for a response which was surprising given the amount of patients I’ve met at his practice. As a black woman, anything dealing with medical professionals is scary but Dr. Ben is the best I’ve ever interacted with. He restored my confidence in my body, went from a 36H to about a D cup. I have had absolutely no complications with my surgery, I felt like I was back to myself about 3-4 weeks post op. Thank you so much Dr. Ben! May God bless you infinitely"- M.M. / Google / Mar 18, 2023
How is Laser Skin Resurfacing performed?
If you are scheduled for a more intense or deeper laser resurfacing session, you may be asked to use a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser procedure. This helps prep the skin for better results. Medication will be suggested prior to the procedure to help lessen any sensation so you can relax during your appointment. If your complexion needs mild improvement, a topical anesthetic may be used to numb certain areas of the face. For the whole complexion or more intense laser procedures, a kind of sedation may be required. Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over your skin, directly targeting the specific sections for rejuvenation. You may feel the warmth from the laser followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. The laser works to remove dead and damaged skin cells while also stimulating new collagen production.
