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.

#emsculpt results. We’ve had our machine for about a month. It takes 2 weeks to complete the 4 treatments, so we are starting to see our first round of patients back. This is a before and after right at the end of his treatments, only 2 week timeframe in between.🙌. This patient was very pleased to say the least. He was already in shape. He also is a fitness/nutrition person and understands how to work out and eat to lean up. He’s competed in physique competitions before. He felt that this type of result usually takes about 6 weeks of strict nutrition and cardio for him based on his past experience. For him to achieve this in 2 weeks after emsculpt was incredible. He really wanted this for an upcoming trip to the beach. Bottom line: this technology works. We have seen consistent results in our patients. This one is very impressive because he started from a good baseline and was already on a fitness/nutrition regimen which just enhances the result! And the best part...this transformation happened while he was lying comfortably on our procedure chair. 🙌🙌
