Laser Skin Treatment

The most effective and technologically advanced lasers

Laser Skin Treatment in NYC

There are many different lasers used to improve the appearance of skin. Different lasers work by targeting different structures in the skin. Which laser and which settings are used depend on a variety of different factors including skin color, purpose of treatment, the characteristics of the target, and the patient’s medical background. The field of laser surgery is complex and requires a deep understanding of the physical and biological interactions between laser light and the human skin. One should always carefully choose a dermatologist with subspecialty training and experience in this field for laser treatment.

Dr. Julia Tzu

“Laser treatments are one of my favorite procedures because of how safe and effective it is for removal of brown spots, red spots, acne scarring, and a variety of other cosmetic skin conditions that other procedures cannot address. I always personally perform the laser procedures because I’m a firm believer that knowledgeable and skilled delivery of laser energy yields the safest and best cosmetic outcomes.”- Dr. Julia Tzu, MD, FAAD

What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated with Lasers?

Conditions that commonly respond to laser treatment include redness, red spots, blood vessels, acne, tattoos, discoloration, brown spots, melasma, loose skin, wrinkles, large pores, scars, acne scars, and stretch marks. Our practice houses a selection of the most effective and technologically advanced lasers. Our lasers are, by strict scientific definition, true lasers and are therefore more effective than other patented light technologies for the removal of red marks, brown marks, vessels, and laser scar revision.  All of our lasers have been purchased new and directly from the laser manufacturers for quality control and consumer safety, and represent the newest models available.  We do not short-change quality for cost.

What Skin Conditions Can Be Treated with Lasers?

There are many different types of lasers, each with its own wavelength of light that is absorbed differentially by different structures in the skin. Which laser treatment is best for you will depend on what structure you are targeting in the skin, and the answer will be determined by a conversation with your dermatologist. 

The most popular lasers at our practice include lasers that target brown discoloration (Q-switched lasers) and redness and inflammation (Pulsed-dye lasers). Patients that request for removal of brown spots, freckles, and melasma may benefit from Q-switched lasers. Patients that request for treatment of red spots, acne/rosacea, and scarring may benefit from Pulsed-dye lasers. You can see our Before & After gallery showing laser skin treatments for melasma, angioma (red spots), scar revision, stretch marks, and acne scarring.
