Laser Services by Boston Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Bartlett
Conveniently located to serve Boston
At the office of Dr. Richard A. Bartlett, we provide a number of state-of-the-art laser services for Boston patients. Laser treatments make use of laser energy to quickly and precisely address several issues with no need for scalpels or incisions. These non-invasive non-surgical solutions are often preferred due to their minimized chance of complications and shorter downtime.
With our laser services, we can achieve effective hair removal, treat wrinkles and facial spider veins, and resolve many other skin issues.
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)
IPL is a light treatment, which is similar to laser treatments. While laser treatments use a single wavelength of light, light treatments utilize multiple wavelengths. The use of more scattered light ensures that the light goes into the dermis layer of the skin without affecting the top layer of the epidermis.
During IPL treatment, light energy is delivered to the pigment cells. Unwanted pigment is removed, allowing IPL to address problems like freckles and spots. Generally, IPL sessions take around 20 or 30 minutes, and IPL is administered over three to six sessions.
Laser Hair Removal
Anyone with unwanted body hair can get a long-lasting and sometimes permanent solution by using our laser hair removal. Laser energy is administered to the hair follicles, impairing their ability to grow new hair. Laser hair removal is precise and avoids damage to the surrounding skin. The treatment takes around an hour per session, and three to seven sessions are needed.
Laser genesis is a non-ablative laser therapy treatment used to address skin problems like acne, burns, broken blood vessels, surgical scars, fine lines, age spots, sagging skin, and wrinkles. These conditions can make a person look older and affect their overall appearance.
The procedure takes around 30 minutes and requires three sessions. It makes use of a special device known as a laser genesis wand. During treatment, the wand is moved over the area repeatedly to deliver laser light to the tissues. This heats up the dermis and causes new collagen to be produced. The results of this procedure are very effective.
Facial Vein Correction
One of our laser services is facial vein correction. This is used to treat veins on the face, which are referred to as spider veins. Spider veins have a spider-like appearance and occur due to dilation in the blood vessels.
During treatment, laser energy is focused on the affected veins. This ensures the procedure is effective without damaging other blood vessels. The heat from the laser energy destroys the vein. After a few weeks, the body safely and naturally reabsorbs the damaged vein, restoring the clear and vein-free appearance of the skin.
