Laser Treatments in New York

Our laser treatments use state-of-the-art technology to visibly improve the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, and signs of aging. By pinpointing imperfections and focusing beams of intense light and heat, our advanced lasers are able to safely and effectively improve your skin. We offer several different laser treatments that can be customized to fit the needs of each patient.

Clear + Brilliant

Clear + Brilliant® is a gentle yet effective non-ablative fractional laser treatment designed to treat the early signs of aging. It is also an effective method for keeping skin smooth before visible signs of aging begin to occur.

During your Clear + Brilliant treatment, pixels of light penetrate deep into the upper layers of your skin to improve quality, firmness, and appearance. The laser energy creates millions of microscopic “injuries” in the top layers of the skin to prompt your body to replace damaged skin cells with healthy tissue.

A Clear + Brilliant session can take as little as 20 minutes, and you’ll see results after just a few days, with continued improvements over the next few months. Your skin will soon become smoother, softer, and more radiant.

Infrared Skin Tightening Lasers

Lasers are powerful tools for safe and effective skin tightening. If you are concerned about wrinkles or loose skin, laser skin tightening may be a good option for you. Laser skin tightening devices use an infrared light source to heat the collagen under the skin’s surface, causing the skin to contract and tighten.

Clareon IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) is a skin tightening device that uses lasers to provide deep dermal tightening. We are able to fully customize your treatment for the best results using a variety of detachable hand pieces. Using a range of wavelengths to heat the collagen under the surface of your skin, Clareon IPL effectively stimulates long-lasting collagen renewal to treat lax skin anywhere on your body, including the face, neck, abdomen, thighs, and arms.

Clareon IPL utilizes a patented, highly safe light technology called Krypton. This lamp utilizes the useful wavelengths of the spectrum without producing excessive melanin and blood absorption—a problem typical of older technology. Treatment is comfortable and has few visible side effects. Most patients benefit from a series of two to four sessions, though the best treatment plan for you will depend on your individual needs.

My sincere thanks to all of you for your kindness and patience during my series of treatments. Apart from the benefits of the treatments, the real bonus was spending time with you and in such a nurturing and welcoming environment. I always left feeling better and more at peace than when I walked in! Read more Patient Testimonials

Reduce Cellulite with Venus Freeze

Soft, supple, and smooth skin is something we all want to achieve, but most people have the occasional bump or lump on their bodies. And although a large percentage of the population is concerned with areas of cellulite or loose skin, these conditions are notoriously difficult to treat.

Venus Freeze™ is a laser treatment that effectively reduces cellulite, tightens up lax skin, and minimizes wrinkles over the course of just a few treatments. By sending pulses of multi-polar radio frequency and pulsed magnetic fields into the skin, the Venus Freeze laser creates thermal reaction in the tissue which triggers your body’s natural healing response, in addition to providing increased oxygen, nutrients, and blood flow to the skin. This effectively increases the production of new collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, leaving you with tighter, softer, and smoother skin. Treatments take under an hour, and most patients benefit from a series of six to ten sessions.

Treating Vascular Lesions with VariLite

If spider veins, vascular lesions, or rosacea are causing you to feel self-conscious about your appearance, we may recommend treatment with VariLite. This compact, versatile laser offers an effective and comfortable treatment for a variety of vascular, benign pigmented, and cutaneous lesions, including:

  • Unwanted blood vessels caused by sun damage, acne, or rosacea
  • Spider veins
  • Age spots
  • Angiomas
  • Freckles
  • Hyperpigmentation

Suitable for all skin types, VariLite uses two wavelengths to provide a comprehensive treatment. During treatment, targeted laser energy is directly absorbed by oxyhemoglobin, the component that causes the redness in your blood vessels, and this heat destroys the unwanted vessels permanently. The surrounding skin and tissue is unaffected by treatment.

While many patients are thrilled with their results after just one treatment, the number of sessions required to achieve your results will depend on your individual circumstances.
