Laser Treatment

YAG Laser Blood Vessel Treatment

For larger or more stubborn vessels on the face or for certain small, resistant leg veins, this powerful laser helps to clear those vessels that sclerotherapy and/or IPL laser treatment cannot. It works particularly well for spider angiomas of the face (which many times require only one treatment), dilated blood vessels around the nose and central cheeks, and on certain vascular birthmarks. During your consultation, Dr. Cavalli will let you know which treatment would be best for your condition.

IPL Photorejuvenation

  

This non-invasive treatment can correct many different skin conditions including broken capillaries, age spots, birthmarks and other skin imperfections. There is no downtime following the treatments, which usually last 20 minutes. The treatments are generally broken down into 4-6 sessions to ensure quality long-term results. Ask our staff if the state-of-the-art IPL™ (Intense Pulsed Light) technology is right for you.

IPL Hair Removal

If you’re looking for a long-lasting solution to hair removal, our Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology may be for you. Proven safe and effective, this technology uses small flashes of light which heat the hair and the follicles under the skin’s surface. The light is controlled so as not to damage any surrounding tissue. With little to no downtime, this treatment has become a popular option in permanent hair reduction.

As with all laser treatments, a consultation is required to determine if this treatment is right for you. It is important that the hair in question be visible at the time of your consultation. So, do not pluck, wax or shave prior to that visit. Hair shafts must be evaluated for color, thickness, location and follicle density for an accurate consultation to be performed.

Those taking certain medications, herbal remedies or dietary supplements or those who are tan or spray-tanned should not undergo treatment. White, gray and blond hair does not respond to any laser hair removal techniques because there is not enough melanin pigment in the hair shaft to absorb the light energy. This procedure works best on those with darker hairs on a contrasting background of light skin. Underarm and bikini-line hair is usually very amenable to laser treatment while facial hair is more stubborn.
