In addition to laser hair removal, laser tattoo removal, and laser scar removal, we offer a number of other laser treatments that are designed to treat common skin conditions safely and gently. Bodian Dermatology & Medical Day Spa performs laser treatments including laser acne therapy, laser vein removal, and laser skin tightening at our practice serving Manhattan, Queens, Long Island, and nearby areas.
Dr. Adam Bodian and our staff are proud to offer state-of-the-art treatment for individuals who suffer from acne. Our laser acne therapy is a gentle and effective procedure for removing acne blemishes and restoring a smooth, clear complexion. In this treatment, a high-energy laser beam is shone on the targeted areas. The laser energy destroys the bacteria that cause acne to purify and clear pores from the inside out. Laser acne therapy does not cause any discomfort and patients are free to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.
Patients generally notice results within 24 to 48 hours of treatment. In addition to removing acne blemishes, laser acne therapy can also improve the tone and texture of skin and reduce pore size. For optimal results, up to six treatments may be necessary, spaced four weeks apart. Our practice also offers laser acne scar removal for individuals who still have scars caused by acne even though the blemishes themselves are gone. To learn more about laser acne therapy, contact Bodian Dermatology & Medical Day Spa and schedule a consultation with our friendly, knowledgeable staff.
Our practice performs laser vein removal to reduce or eliminate the appearance of spider or varicose veins on the face, legs, or hands. These large veins are usually red or purplish in color and can cause physical discomfort in addition to cosmetic embarrassment.
In laser vein removal, a targeted beam of high-energy light is shone on the treatment area. This laser energy causes the spider or varicose veins to become smaller until they have completely faded away. Treatment is safe, painless, and can generally be completed in less than an hour. Several sessions may be necessary for optimal results.
Sometimes a procedure known as sclerotherapy is performed instead of laser vein removal to treat spider or varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is completed by injecting a solution into the targeted veins that improves blood flow and causes the veins to disappear. Dr. Bodian and our staff will help determine whether sclerotherapy or laser vein removal, or a combination of the two procedures, is most appropriate for your individual needs.
Laser skin tightening is one of the most popular procedures at our dermatology practice. The procedure is a state-of-the-art method to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and turn back the clock for a smother, younger-looking appearance. The procedure uses a high-energy laser beam that causes skin to tighten and become softer and fuller so that wrinkles and fine lines are smoothed away. In addition, laser skin tightening stimulates the production of new collagen so that results continue to improve during the months after treatment. Laser skin tightening causes little to no discomfort, and patients can resume their normal activities as soon as the procedure is completed.
Other treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic, injectables, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels may be performed along with laser skin tightening to further enhance results. Laser skin tightening can also be performed on the body for individuals who are bothered by stretch marks. The treatment has been shown to be an effective method for stretch mark removal. Our staff will help devise a treatment plan to address your individual needs. Contact Bodian Dermatology & Medical Day Spa today for more information or to schedule an appointment.
Rosacea is a common skin condition that causes redness and swelling. At our practice, we perform a number of treatments to reduce and eliminate rosacea symptoms, including laser therapy. This treatment can cause significant improvement after only one session, including reduced redness, fewer breakouts, and clearer skin texture.
Spots and skin discoloration can cause individuals to appear older than they really are. These spots, caused by hereditary, sun exposure, and the normal aging process, can be reduced or eliminated with our advanced laser technology.
Red spots, also known as cherry angiomas, can develop on the chest, abdomen, arms, and other areas. Although red spots pose no medical risk, they are often bothersome in size and number. Laser therapy can remove these lesions quickly and permanently.
Laser pore therapy is similar to laser acne therapy in that the treatment is performed to remove the bacteria beneath the skin that cause pores to become enlarged and blemishes to appear. With laser pore therapy, damaged skin is repaired and a smooth, clear skin tone is created. The size of the pores themselves is reduced to create a radiant, healthy complexion.
Psoriasis is a disease that causes thick, red, and scaly patches on the skin. The condition is caused by deficiencies in the immune system. Our practice offers patients relief from this disease whether they have mild or severe symptoms. Laser therapy is one of the treatments that our staff uses to treat psoriasis, along with a state-of-the-art technology known as Grenz-rays.
Vitiligo is a condition in which a loss of pigment causes white patches to appear on the skin. Although the causes of this disease are not fully known, its symptoms can be treated using laser technology. Laser therapy stimulates the production of healthy, new skin and creates a uniform skin tone and color.
