Laser Procedures New York City
Laser Treatments NYC
Over the past decade, advances in laser technology have allowed surgeons and dermatologists to diminish the appearance of scars and wrinkles in New York City by using both ablative and nonablative lasers. Until recently, surgeons relied on chemical peels, microdermabrasion, surgical scar revision, electrosurgical planing, and dermal/subdermal filler substances as their only method for the correction of scars and wrinkles.
At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we offer laser treatments for wrinkles, telangiectasias, brown spots (age spots), hair removal, skin tightening, and leg veins.
Types of Lasers
The Fractionated CO Laser
Also known as Total FX Treatment, this is the newest treatment modality for rejuvenating the skin, building collagen, and reducing wrinkles and scars. This laser can be used to treat specific areas of the face including the jawline, eyelids, and around the mouth. Used over the entire face, it improves the texture of the skin by reducing the size of pores, lightening brown age spots, and “plumping” the skin by stimulating collagen growth. Around the upper eyelids, it can remove loose skin and on the lower lids, fat pads are eliminated without cutting and suturing. The laser focuses energy in a series of columns, preserving surrounding tissue, to promote healing and stimulation of the formation of collagen. Typically, there is redness and flaking (much like a sunburn) lasting approximately one week. The effects of this procedure are seen over the next six months as the formatic collagen is stimulated.
The Lumenis LightSheer Infinity
We use this laser for Hair Removal and other laser procedures. Lumenis’ LightSheer INFINITY laser works by gently vacuuming the patient’s skin into the handpiece. Next, the skin is stretched and pulled in closer to the energy source. By stretching the skin, this allows us to deliver the laser energy more efficiently.
TheraClear™ Acne Treatment
Fractional CO2 Resurfacing
Fractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment for brown spots, uneven skin tone, and acne related scars. This TotalFX treatment allows Dr. Quintana to treat deep layers of the skin, with minimal downtime. Results can be seen immediately after only one treatment.
Laser Hair Removal
Leg Vein Removal
For unsightly blue, purple, or red spider veins, we utilize our Lumenis Nd:YAG laser to safely and effectively remove them. This laser allows Dr. Quintana to precisely target the vein without harming nearby tissue. Unlike sclerotherapy, with laser vein removal we can remove numerous vein areas at one time without any injections.
Acne Scar Removal
If you are looking for a treatment that can help a variety of skin concerns, our M22 IPL laser is extremely effective. The IPL mode uses a cooling system to keep patients comfortable and the ResurFX mode stimulates collagen below the skin’s surface to improve the skin’s tone and texture. The Nd:YAG mode uses energy pulses for lesions, veins, and wrinkles. Unlike any other laser, the M22 IPL Laser allows patients the ability to tailor their treatment.
ResurFX Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing with ResurFX is safe, painless, and non-ablative. This treatment is extremely effective in helping with a variety of skin conditions. ResurFX can be used in combination with dermal fillers and Botox for more enhanced results.
