Laser & Light Treatments


Laser Treatments

Lasers are devices that emit a high intensity, specific wavelength of light that can penetrate into the skin and affect a certain target without damaging the surrounding skin and soft tissue. There are many different lasers available today to treat a variety of skin conditions.

At United Dermatology Associates, we have lasers that may address the following concerns:

  • Hair removal
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Sun spots
  • Broken blood vessels on the face
  • Spider veins
  • Angiomas (red spots on the skin)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage (red/brown blotchy discoloration of the skin)

Fraxel®

0139-Fraxel_1927_HiRes_Medium-300x231Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.

Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.

0142-Fraxel_1927_HiRes_Medium-300x231Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure which diminishes as quickly as the next day or over the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue with the treatment sessions, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment. As with a SUNBURN, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally, revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.

Fraxel treatment is a safe option backed by extensive research. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk* and/or downtime. You should discuss this with your clinician prior to treatment.

Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 resurfacing treatments effectively target both the surface and deeper layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger looking appearance.
• Improved tone and texture
• Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
• Erasing of unwanted brown spots
• Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
• Effective treatment of pre-cancerous lesions (Actinic Keratosis)
• Excellent treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back
You do a lot to look and feel great, finding the time to enjoy life to the fullest while still taking care of your body and skin. Yet, the effects of sun, pollution, stress and fatigue can add up, keeping your skin from looking as good as you feel.

The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin.

The treatment will be tailored to your desired outcomes and can even be combined so that you receive the added benefits of both a superficial and deep laser treatment, both on and off the face. >>Visit Website

Photodynamic Therapy

This treatment is FDA approved for the treatment of actinic keratoses– precancerous lesions on the skin from sun damage that can develop into skin cancer if left untreated. It involves the application of Levulan (aminolevulinic acid 20%) to affected skin and allowing it to incubate for 45 minutes to an hour. The solution is absorbed by the precancerous cells, where it is converted to a chemical that makes the cells extremely sensitive to light. The skin is then exposed to the BLU-U Blue Light Illuminator, and a reaction occurs which destroys the precancerous cells without damaging normal skin. This is a great treatment option for individuals with significant sun damage. It is a simple, quick, in office procedure. It causes a sunburn-like reaction on the skin that resolves within one week. It is very effective in treating the precancerous lesions, but patients also enjoy the cosmetic response, as the majority of patients treated report a significant improvement in the look and feel of their skin. Patients treated with Levulan should avoid exposure to sun for 48 hours post procedure. View Website

Feminine Rejuvenation with ThermiVa®

Childbirth and the natural aging process cause changes which may affect feminine wellness. A particularly strenuous vaginal childbirth, multiple births, and the effects of menopause can cause physical changes which can rob women (and their partners) of their sense of well-being and happiness.

Non-Invasive Dermal Remodeling with ThermiSmooth®

ThermiSmooth® Face is performed using a specially designed thermistor-regulated hand piece.  As the hand piece gently heats the skin’s surface using dermal heating, it targets problem areas around the eyes, mouth, cheeks and neck. Click here for more information.

"Day 5 after Fraxel. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The tone and texture of my skin are amazing and I do not have anything on my face except sunscreen. The lines I had on my forehead are no longer there." ~ Shellie ... See MoreSee Less

HUGE ANNOUNCEMENT! Please help us welcome Dr. Ben Treen to our practice! We just love him and you will too ! He will primarily see patients in the Arlington and Mansfield locations.

Here's a little background information about him :

Born in New Orleans, Dr. Treen attended school there and one year in Spartanburg, SC before leaving early to attend college. On a National Merit Scholarship, he attended the University of Georgia, graduating early with a BSA in Biological Sciences. After working in a hospital OR he decided to go to medical school to be a thoracic surgeon, but was lured away by the variety inherent in dermatology at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston. After completing a residency in Internal Medicine at the Alton Ochsner Medical Foundation in New Orleans, he was accepted into dermatology residency at LSUMC in New Orleans where he was chief resident in his final year, and achieved certification by the American Board of Dermatology immediately thereafter.

Dr. Treen established a successful solo practice in Greenville, SC, encompassing all aspects of dermatology: general, medical, pediatric, surgical, cosmetic, and laser procedures. He has been an invited speaker and trainer for regional, national, and international meetings on advanced surgical, laser, and cosmetic procedures (including liposuction).

Licensed in Texas since 2011, he is excited to have moved here, and to be a part of United Dermatology Associates. His interests and hobbies include hunting, recumbent bicycling, water-sports, 5-string banjo, motorcycling, and Ham radio (call sign W1UGA reflects his passion for the Georgia Bulldogs).

Dr. Treen is a Fellow of the American Society for Mohs Surgery, the American Academy of Dermatology, and the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.

“I absolutely love what I do, and I think it shows. I hope and expect to be helping patients with their dermatologic needs for decades to come.”
~Dr. Treen

Many of us have a direct connection to the folks that have been displaced from Hurricane Harvey. The thousands of people that are currently in shelters will have a long, hard road ahead of them. Homes and cars destroyed , businesses closed , and so much uncertainty is not something that can be fixed overnight. However, we as fellow Texans, united in love , can make a difference! For the next two weeks , ALL proceeds from all of the skin care products we sell will be donated to help with relief efforts. We are in the process of researching non-profit organizations to donate to so that every single penny is spent on rebuilding their community. Also, be on the lookout for upcoming dates to get cosmetic services performed by our providers , and in turn all proceeds will be donated to help hurricane victims ! Together we can make a difference 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
