Laser treatments have become more sophisticated in the last decade. Today’s laser devices can be customized to address a range of aesthetic concerns. From sun damage and discoloration to lax skin and hair removal, laser and light technologies can improve the appearance without the risks or downtime of surgery.
At her Manhattan practice, leading New York dermatologist Dr. Judith Hellman, an expert in non-invasive aesthetic procedures, performs laser treatments on those wishing to improve the texture and tone of the skin and reduce visible signs of aging. She offers the latest technologies in order to give her patients the most advanced treatment options available.
Unlike ablative lasers, which remove the outer layer of the skin, the Affirm Multiplex non-ablative laser uses fractional technology to deliver targeted treatment. The result is optimal rejuvenation without a prolonged healing period.
Also referred to as sunspots, hyperpigmentation and discoloration is a common sign of aging skin. To even out the skin tone, we use Lumecca, a state-of-art solution that utilizes intense pulse light to treat pigmentation, causing brown spots to fade after treatment.
A fat reduction and skin tightening treatment, the BodyFX is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. The contouring device not only sculpts the body by melting stubborn fat, it simultaneously addresses lax skin, making treatment area more taut.
Erbium Yag Laser Peels
For deep, penetrating treatment of photoaged skin, the Erbium Yag laser peel, an ablative procedure, can yield impressive results. Erbium Yag mini-peels, or micro resurfacing, can also be performed to reduce downtime and side effects.
A highly customizable treatment that can be used on all skin types, Fractora RF reduces fine lines, minimizes scars, and lifts the skin. The versatile treatment prompts the body to produce new collagen, strengthening the skin and restoring its resilience.
Utilizing a combination of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and radiofrequency technologies, Fotofacial RF is excellent for facial veins and uneven skin tone. Safe and well-tolerated, Fotofacial produces visible results with the benefit of no downtime.
Laser for Acne
Acne is the most common reason that an individual seeks a dermatologist’s care. In the case of cystic acne, using Fractora and Pulse Dye Laser (PDL) can deprive lesions of their ability to thrive, providing an effective treatment option for this stubborn and often painful skin condition.
Laser Facial for Wrinkles
A laser resurfacing treatment is an excellent solution for those wishing to minimize wrinkles and fine lines. Because light energy boosts collagen growth, the condition of the skin will continue to improve the course of a few weeks.
Laser Hair Removal
One of the most popular applications of laser technology, a hair removal procedure can eliminate the need for hair shaving or waxing. The Alexandrite laser efficiently targets the hair follicle at its root, reducing treatment time and minimizing patient discomfort.
Pulse Dye Laser for Rosacea
Designed to target red skin discolorations, the Pulse Dye Laser is excellent for addressing rosacea and other conditions that that involve red blood vessels. The device emits specific wavelengths that neutralize the color red, resulting in a more even skin tone.
For tighter and firmer skin, we recommend Refirme ST, a dual non-invasive treatment that produces visible results immediately following the procedure. The device uses complementary radiofrequency and infrared technology to rejuvenate the skin and prompt the regenerative process.
Highly effective at breaking down the colored pigment used to tint skin, laser technology can remove the traces of an unwanted tattoo. After being exposed to calibrated light energy, the tattoo will gradually fade away over a few weeks.
