Laser Skin Resurfacing

Looking to lessen the appearance wrinkles and scars, even out pigmentation, and improve skin texture? Laser resurfacing is an effective treatment for sun damage and signs of aging. Our dual-pulsed laser works to remove imperfections by vaporizing the outermost layers of skin and stimulating the body’s healing response.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a non-surgical skin treatment that treats wrinkles and redness, reduces the appearance of large pores, fades away acne scars, minimizes fine lines, and improves skin texture. Laser genesis works for people of all ages and skin tones who want to treat conditions typically associated with premature signs of aging and sun damage.

Laser Genesis works by using a laser to gently heat the skin, which then increases production of new skin cells and collagen. Laser Genesis can treat the following common skin concerns:

  • Acne scars
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Large pores
  • Textured skin
  • Premature signs of aging
  • Hyperpigmentation and rosacea

Results are immediate, and our patients often see significant improvements in their skin after just a single treatment. For best results, we recommend three to six treatments spaced two to three weeks apart.

Patients who receive a Laser Genesis treatment may experience minimal side effects, including redness, mild irritation and slight swelling.

IPL

Intense Pulsed Light, or IPL, is an effective technology used for photo rejuvenation. Also known as a photofacial, this treatment is an excellent option for the treatment of brown spots and sun damage on your face, chest, arms, and hands without the use of gel or topical anesthetics. Signs of sun damage and age spots generally flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clearer, younger looking skin.

Laser MicroPeel

Laser MicroPeels are a great alternative to microdermabrasion or photofacials. Using mild laser technology, Laser MicroPeel treatments successfully treat discoloration, age spots, sun damage and freckles, and fine lines.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most popular kinds of laser treatments here at our Boston skin center, and for good reason. Thanks to recent developments in laser technology, now those with any skin type (including darker skin tones) can permanently reduce unwanted hair. Our state-of-the-art machines use light at an optimized wavelength to target the unwanted hair follicles without irritating the surrounding tissues. Laser hair removal treatment at Boston Plastic Surgery is fast, gentle, and effective.

We are proud to offer our laser hair removal patients both Cutera CoolGlide and ProWave technologies, thus providing options to match the ideal treatment for any skin type.
