Laser & Light Treatment in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach
Laser and light based treatments are very popular since they provide great benefit with little to no recovery time. Laser treatments can be used to improve skin color, tone and texture. Some laser treatments may require several sessions, while others can be performed in one session.
Permanent Hair Reduction
Light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase. After a series of 5 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, most hair is permanently removed.

BBL (Broad Band Light) / IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) / Photofacials
Utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, the physician will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage.
In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions
The latest and most effective procedure available to tighten loose and sagging skin. It does this by delivering targeted infrared energy into the dermal layer of your skin. This energy creates a thermal injury, and your body’s response is to create more collagen. This additional collagen helps to restore elasticity to your skin, therefore tightening the tissue. This is a no downtime procedure, which requires on average 5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
This treatment is often used in conjunction with BBL above.
Laser Resurfacing Treatments
With full resurfacing, the entire surface area of the skin is treated. A laser beam is scanned across the treatment area and precisely removes a layer of skin. The body will naturally replace the old, damaged skin that was removed, with a fresh, healthy layer. Treatments can range from shallow (which might be appropriate for eliminating fine lines, sun spots and tired-looking skin) to deep (which is often used to improve skin tone/texture and eliminate deep wrinkles, even in difficult areas like upper lip lines and the side of the cheeks).
In fractional resurfacing, only narrow channels of tissue are removed which stimulates new collagen and elastin, while leaving the surround tissue intact for rapid healing. This laser is used to reduce fine lines, improve texture, even out skin tone, firm the skin as well as reduce the appearance of scars.
