Our program using lasers and other devices in dermatology
We take an individualized approach when recommending the best treatment for each patient. Laser Dermatology is a convenient way to receive the care that you may need to improve the look of your skin. During your consultation, we can discuss your needs to help you decide on the best treatment for you. If you experience sun-damaged skin, wrinkles, sunspots, or skin conditions that cause you to have redness, scars, or other unwanted marks, we can help.
What can you expect from a laser procedure?
The lasers and other devices that we use to treat skin conditions do not require any incisions, which makes for a more comfortable experience for our patients. The technology that we use is effective at treating a variety of skin conditions; yet gentle enough to produce results of smooth, toned, and more youthful-looking skin.
When you receive laser treatments at NY Skin RX, you can expect minimal discomfort, as it is usually well tolerated by most patients. However, a topical cream that produces a numbing effect may be applied to the skin before treatment for added comfort.
One of the best aspects of laser treatments is that there is often little or no downtime. Following laser therapy, you can often resume your regular daily activities. However, for certain procedures, you should be cautious about sun exposure for up to about a week following your treatment. We will provide you with post-op care instructions so that you may experience the best results.
