Laser Hair Removal
Our hair removal laser is among the safest and most effective systems in the world, with virtually no risk of scarring. We have treated hundreds of satisfied patients with this device. Most say it is easier than waxing.
The specific wavelength energy is used to penetrate the skin and damage the hair follicle. A direct cooling device in the laser is effective for long-term hair reduction without injury to the skin's surface. Lasers make it possible to treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms and legs, as well as more sensitive areas such as the face and bikini line. It is also possible to remove hundreds of hairs at a time (as opposed to electrolysis, which works hair-by-hair.)
This safe, pain-free procedure can provide long-term results, with most patients needing three to five treatment in the first year. (Some hair follicles may enter their growth cycle after a treatment, so multiple sessions are required to deliver optimal results.) Any subsequent residual hair growth usually appears finer, shorter and lighter in color.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo-Facial
The Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial treatment is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the U.S. It is a safe and easy way to reduce redness, fine lines and wrinkles, irregular pigmentation and large pores and generally improve the appearance of aging or damaged skin. Gentle pulses of laser light penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production, softening and filling out the skin and fading pigmentation. The laser is set at specific wavelengths for each patient to get the best results. South Nassau Dermatology's Palomar Medilux IPL is an advanced system that allows short, virtually painless treatment sessions of only 15-30 minutes and visible results after three to five treatments.
