Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Patients visit Dr. Gerstner for her experience and custom approach to laser skin rejuvenation. The following indications are common areas of concern for many, and through a custom treatment plan from our practice you are able to see an improvement in these types of concerns.
Laser Hair Removal
Dr. Gervaise Gerstner and her experienced staff offer the LightSheer® DUET™ for laser hair removal in their New York practice. The DUET is able to provide you with a solution for areas of dark, thick and otherwise unwanted hair.
Through a series of treatments, the DUET targets the hair’s pigment and delivers a burst of laser light to the follicle, effectively reducing its ability to grow. Although the laser light is emitted, or pulsed, for only a fraction of a second, this method has shown proven results for New York City laser hair removal patients. A laser hair removal session using the LightSheer DUET is fast and comfortable. Your laser technician will treat the area, which can take anywhere from a few minutes for the underarm or bikini area to 20 minutes for the legs or back.
Re:store offers effective results for improvement in overall skin texture and tone on the face and neck. With a series of treatments, patients can see decreased wrinkles, pore size, scars and stretch marks. Also, the Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 has wavelengths which addresses hyperpigmentation, melasma (pregnancy mask) and unwanted brown spots. Dr. Gerstner may recommend several treatments spaced four weeks apart, with the progressive results typically visible within two to three months. This allows time for the skin to heal between each treatment and the collagen and elastin to replace the affected tissue.
Clear + Brilliant™
For patients of any age looking to take control of the aging process, a Clear + Brilliant laser treatment can give skin a glowing, smooth look without the need for surgery or downtime. The laser illuminates the skin’s tone and texture, giving a reduction in the appearance of pores. During your consultation, Dr. Gerstner will discuss the benefits of this treatment and the best way to introduce it to your normal skincare regimen.
Vbeam is used to eliminate the appearance of the redness, blotchiness, surgical scars, stretch marks, capillary angiomas, and visible facial discoloration common to patients with rosacea. It delivers an intense but gentle burst of light into selectively targeted areas of the skin. The light is absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin pigmented areas in the dermis depending on the condition being treated. This allows the doctor to tailor the treatment specifically to each patient.
During your consultation, Dr. Gerstner will recommend a custom treatment plan to meet your needs. Request an appointment at our practice today, or call 212-249-2208 for additional information and to book your consultation.
