Laser Treatments for All Skin Types

Why is our Laser so gentle and virtually painless on the skin as well as skin of color and tanned skin?

The laser’s unique 0.65msec pulse duration is shorter than the thermal relaxation time of the skin tissue, so the energy passes through the skin quickly and does not overheat the epidermal melanin. When treating skin of color, this provides new levels of efficacy as well as safety by avoiding pigmentary risk. Also, because skin cooling is not necessary during treatment (no stinging cryogen sprays or gels), the handpiece of the laser does not contact the skin – thereby reducing treatment time in a hygienic procedure while eliminating the irritating skin contact and pain of other laser technologies.

Laser Treatments for Nails & Feet

Nail Fungus Treatment

Onychomycosis, or nail fungus, is an infection of the toenail in which the nail changes color, thickness and quality. In addition to causing an unhealthy appearance, it can cause pain and difficulty walking. Laser treatment for nail fungus is safe, quick and highly effective. Laser procedures for nail fungus are proven to be a much safer and effective method as compared to oral medications or topical creams that can cause many complications. Clinical research has shown that these lasers are now capable of effectively superheating the skin tissue beneath finger and toe nails, causing the coagulation of the soft tissue that is contaminated with fungal material. This can result in a significant cosmetic enhancement for patients. After each treatment, patients are able to resume to their daily activities.

Results are not immediate, as it takes anywhere from 3-6 months for the new, non-infected nail to grow. It is recommended that patients follow a preventative care regimen to avoid reinfection.

Nail Fungus Treatments

Wrinkles/ Photo-Rejuvenation

Keep your youthful appearance. Here we offer two gold-standard modalities for the treatment of wrinkles, whether deep or superficial. The non-invasive laser delivers powerful but painless laser pulses deep into the dermis, resulting in collagen stimulation and wrinkle reduction as well as improvements in tone, texture, and an overall healthy glow for the skin. Achieve superficial face lift results in 3-4 treatments.

Hair Removal

We have transformed the business of laser hair removal with new technology that removes pain from the treatment. No stinging cryogen sprays or messy cooling gels. Even on tanned or darker skin types, this provides best-in-class efficacy.  The laser-generated heat is effectively sealed within the follicle, increasing temperature faster.  This results in a substantial increase in treatment efficacy on fair skin and lighter hairs compared to the prior generation of Nd:YAG 1064nm lasers.

Ingrown Hairs ( PFB’s)

New laser technology makes ingrown hair treatment effective and safe, gently removing the lesions and surrounding Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation without any contact to the skin in just 1 to 3 treatments.

Spider Veins

We have established a new standard for efficiency and safety in treating spider veins. Any facial vessel as well as leg veins are treated with ease and little or no discomfort by a unique blend of high power and a gentle, safe pulse duration. Most are cleared in just 1 or 2 treatment sessions.

Rosacea

Rosacea is a very common condition of diffuse redness in the facial skin, but the affected area sometimes also contains small broken capillaries and larger facial vessels. This unique laser can clear Rosacea and vessels in quick, gentle treatments without skin contact or cooling.

Angiomas

Angiomas are unsightly red vascular lesions that can occur in most body areas of both women and men. The laser routinely removes angiomas in just 1 or 2 quick, easy, and gentle treatments that only require a few laser pulses.

Pigmented Lesions

Everyone desires clear skin. With this unique MicroPulse laser technology, we now can safely and effectively use the laser modality to remove pigmented conditions including sun and age spots, melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Melasma

Melasma, a common skin problem, causes dark patches of skin to appear on the face exposed to sun (also referred to the mask of pregnancy). The laser is effective and gentle for the treatment of melasma. Its high power laser energy with a unique 0.65msec pulse duration heats the melasma quickly for higher clearance. It also penetrates much deeper into the dermis as compared with Nd:YAG lasers, affecting deeper layers of melanin and providing better clearance.

Acne Vulgaris

Acne can feel and be debilitating. Here we offer the newest technology for laser therapy in treating acne vulgaris. The highly powerful yet gentle laser pulses superheat the sebaceous gland and its surroundings, where the p. acnes bacteria congregate. The treatment is fast and hygienic as nothing touches the skin except a beam of laser light. With the laser, we can now effectively and safely treat both pediatric and adult acne patients, regardless of skin type (Caucasian, Asian, Indian or African, Hispanic etc.) and reduce the use of antibiotics.

Cutaneous Lesions

Cutaneous lesions are skin growths that come in many shapes and sizes, and historically have been removed with aggressive modalities such as excision or cryotherapy. But with the advent of new laser technology, they can now be removed with precision, avoiding the pain and scarring risk of adjacent tissue damage.

Warts

Warts have traditionally been removed with modalities such as surgical excision, freezing or chemicals. But with new innovative  laser technology, now they can be removed by simply destroying the root vasculature with the laser, thus avoiding collateral tissue damage or scarring as well as minimizing treatment discomfort and eliminating the long healing time from surgical incisions.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common condition that causes skin redness and irritation. Our laser is clinically proven to clear psoriasis plaques. The laser delivers high power energy packaged in optimal fast laser pulses to effectively destroy both superficial and deep microvasculature – the tiny blood vessels that contribute to the formation of psoriasis lesions. A major improvement or clearance of the condition can be seen in just one gentle treatment.

Ulcers

Skin ulcers develop as a wound on the skin mostly due to poor blood circulation. They are slow to heal and often come back without steps to prevent them. Our laser is clinically proven to improve localized skin injury such as decubitus ulcers. The laser delivers gentle yet powerful laser energy to the skin tissue, with an innovative energy delivery that completely avoids any contact to the treatment site. This allows for treatment while avoiding unnecessary pain and irritation to the tissue while also maximizing hygiene.
