With the help of cutting-edge laser technology, skin rejuvenation and body contouring treatments are now more safe, efficient and effective than ever.
Dozens of laser and light-based devices designed to address a variety of skin conditions are available to adult patients of all ages and skin types to improve skin tone and texture, correct pigmentation and surface irregularities and restore skin firmness and youthful elasticity.
Today’s lasers are extremely versatile. They not only rejuvenate skin on the face, neck, chest and hands, but can also be used to smooth and tighten skin in a variety of other body areas, remove unwanted body hair and more. The board-certified dermatologists at Sadick Dermatology are experts in skin rejuvenation and can help you achieve any number of cosmetic goals using the array of laser systems available at their New York dermatology practices.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
There are several laser skin resurfacing treatments designed to work safely on different skin types and target nearly any skin problem.
Intense pulsed light (IPL) or Photo Facial treatments are ideal for correcting sun damage, evening out skin pigmentation and reducing redness in the face, neck and chest and can also be used for hand rejuvenation.
The Fraxel Laser is a non-invasive fractional laser ideal for holistic skin tone and texture improvement, as well as acne scar reduction, and require minimal downtime, whereas SmartXide DOT Resurfacing and other CO2 Laser Resurfacing procedures are more invasive but produce more dramatic skin rejuvenation results with a lengthier healing period.
Laser Body Contouring
Laser technology revolutionized body contouring with the advent of laser liposuction systems, such as Cool Lipo, Lipotherme, Slim Lipo, Smart Lipo MPX and Smooth Lipo. These devices offer a more efficient and minimally invasive way to permanently remove stubborn body fat deposits, while also providing skin tightening effects to further improve body contours and minimize surface irregularities after liposuction.
Laser Cellulite Treatment
Although there is no cure for cellulite, laser technology makes it possible to smooth skin and dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite on the belly, back, love handles, thighs and buttocks. Most laser cellulite treatments, such as SmoothShapes, Thermage and Velashape, incorporate either bi-polar radiofrequency, infared light or other laser energy along with gentle suction and mechanical massage techniques to provide temporary cellulite reduction and non-surgical body slimming effects.
Laser Skin Tightening
Plastic surgery is no longer the only way to correct mildly loose, sagging skin. By heating the underlying layers of the skin to increase collagen protein production, laser skin tightening devices can help improve facial support structures to achieve tighter, firmer, more youthful-looking skin without surgery. Although some laser resurfacing treatments stimulate collagen remodeling and produce mild skin tightening effects, there are laser systems, such as Refirme and Thermage, that are specifically designed to provide non-surgical skin tightening with zero downtime.
Laser Hair Removal
Unwanted facial hair and body hair are no match for laser and light-based therapies. Through a series of laser hair removal or IPL treatments, patients with any skin type can permanently reduce brown and black hair in virtually any body area, including the face, neck, chest, back, underarms and legs.
