Finding the best laser skin resurfacing, laser hair removal, or other laser treatments in New York City can be challenging. While these procedures are safe and potential complications are rare, they can still occur.
Fractional laser technology improves skin texture, tone, and elasticity as well as melasma, hyperpigmentation, deep set wrinkles or fine lines, stretch marks, and scars (acne and surgical).
Our fractionated lasers deliver an array of high precision microbeams in columns that penetrate deep into the dermis. These columns create coagulated tissue that stimulates the body’s natural healing process to build new collagen. The result is improved skin tone, texture, and elasticity.
The skin will look flushed and may feel slightly sunburned after treatment and raw with our stronger laser. As the skin regenerates, the skin may become flaky and dry over the next few days. The CO2 laser treatments correct deeper wrinkles but have more downtime since they treat deeper into the skin. These effects vary based on the strength of the treatment and your body’s individual healing process.
Most patients see full results within 3 to 4 months. The results can last several years with proper skin maintenance.
Laser Hair Removal
Our advanced technology for permanent hair reduction can remove unwanted hair safely on a variety of skin and hair colors. Our Palomar Icon, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and laser hair removal system also features advanced contact cooling for optimal comfort and large spot sizes to treat large areas quickly.
Our Palomar MaxRs™ IPL uses highly controlled flashes of light, which are selectively absorbed by pigment in the hair follicles lying below the surface of the skin. The energy from the light is absorbed, destroying the follicles in the growth phase without damaging the surrounding tissue.
The hair will fall out within 1 to 2 weeks after treatment. Because laser hair removal only destroys follicles that are currently in the growth phase, scheduling treatments 6 weeks apart is imperative to capturing hairs that are in overlapping growth phases.
While most patients find these treatments, comfortable we provide anesthetic cream (numbing cream) and oral pain killers when needed to ensure comfort.
