Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that uses laser technology to remove unwanted hair. U.S. Dermatology offers high-quality laser hair removal treatment all throughout the USA, click here to see which locations are near you.
Laser treatments work by using specific wavelengths of light to interact with tissue, which can positively affect pigment, blood vessels, hair follicles and moisture in the skin. The result is improved skin tone and texture, as well as the tightening of loose skin.
Lasers can also be tuned to very specific frequencies to perform different tasks and can even be used in surgery to allow doctors to work on a very precise area with less pain, swelling and scarring than traditional surgery.
Cosmetically, lasers can be used for skin resurfacing and to treat such things as acne, wrinkles, rosacea and more.
Microdermabrasion is a treatment that can help improve the appearance of facial skin. It is used for reducing wrinkles and treating a variety of conditions including acne, scars, warts, enlarged glands on the nose and more.

Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to close when compression is applied.
Tattoo removal is a way to remove unwanted tattoos using lasers to break down the ink particles in the design. The broken-down ink is then flushed out by the immune system, and it mimics the natural fading that would have happened over time or with exposure to the sun. Since no tattoo removal is guaranteed, it is important to speak with a professional to get an honest evaluation of what your final results will look like.
Tattoo removal will take more than one visit, depending on the size and color of your tattoo. It may take as few as two visits, or it may take 10 or more.
ThermiRF is a new technology that uses radiofrequency energy to treat tissue below the skin, rather than addressing the problems on the surface of the skin.

It is used for contouring, treating wrinkles and sagging skin, as well as being used to reduce vaginal laxity. It can also be used to reduce sweating in underarms.
