We talk often about the various surgical options available in the Capital Region, but there are additional procedures available to help you change your appearance and boost your self-confidence.
“We see a lot of patients come into the practice seeking laser procedures,” says Ruth Trincillo, licensed esthetician at The Plastic Surgery Group. “Whether these procedures are all the patient wants or they are pairing these treatments with surgical procedures such as facelifts, it’s nice to see the great results we can achieve.”
Multiple treatments available in The Skin Care Center use laser technology to give you the results you desire. Below are some of the top procedures requested by patients in the Albany area.
Laser Hair Removal
Summer has kicked off and as you’re spending time in bathing suits and sundresses, you may be realizing you have unwanted hair you’d like to eliminate. At The Plastic Surgery Group, we use the LightSheer® DUET™ laser to remove unwanted hair quickly, comfortably, and permanently, with treatment times up to 75% faster than traditional lasers.
Laser hair removal with the DUET laser provides a comfortable experience in which the patient only feels the gentle suction of the skin, rather than any zapping sensation. Consistent with other laser hair removal options, more than one treatment may be required to obtain maximum results.
Laser resurfacing, also referred to as laser peeling, renews your skin’s texture and appearance to make you look younger. Improve the appearance of fine lines, scars, uneven pigment and sun damage. Though many patients choose the traditional procedure, carbon dioxide (CO2) laser resurfacing, there are a few other choices for laser resurfacing, including:
Erbium laser skin resurfacing – A choice for patients whose skin damage is less severe, Erbium laser resurfacing provides great results and a shorter recovery period.
ProFractional™ laser skin resurfacing – Utilizing a laser safe for all skin types, you can correct skin conditions on your face and body. Maximum results typically require between one and four treatments.
MicroLaserPeel® – This light laser peel focuses on the outermost layers of your skin, with a recovery time of just three to four days.
PROFILE™ Laser Skin Peel – This system’s combination of two lasers allows physicians to vary the depth of the laser treatment, providing more precise restoration of areas affected by wrinkles, acne scars, sun and more.
VBeam® laser treatment delivers energy through ultra-long pulses to targeted blood vessels to treat visible spider veins in just one or two sessions with no recovery time necessary. Many patients seek the removal of spider veins that have developed in areas throughout the entire body, including places on face, arms and legs.
