Laser

Diolite 532

The Diolite 532 laser is used to treat selected vascular and pigmented lesions of the skin. Telangiectasias (broken blood vessels), angiomas, lentigines (“liver spots”) and keratoses can all be diminished using the laser. There is minimal downtime after treatment. After vascular lesions are treated, there are a few hours of redness, which resolves spontaneously. After pigmented lesions are treated, they turn darker and form a superficial crust that falls off naturally within a week. Multiple treatments may be required, and are usually spaced about a month apart.

Laser Hair Removal

Imagine not having to wax, pluck, or shave again. We use the Sciton ClearScan YAG laser for permanent hair reduction. The ClearScan technology utilizes a high-speed scanner to deliver precise, uniform energy in a non-sequential fashion, which minimizes pain and skin damage. With the additional cooling system, this is one of the most painless hair removal lasers available. The hair reduction per treatment may be 20-40%. Patients may need anywhere between 4 and 10 treatments depending on the area and color of the hair.

Nail Fungus/ClearToe

We use Sciton’s ClearSense laser to deliver heat energy to the nail in a safe and comfortable fashion. All 10 toes can be treated within one 15-minute session. The heat temporarily kills the fungus within the nail, but it takes months to a year to see the nail improvement. Topical treatment should be maintained during the laser treatment period. We recommend 2-4 treatments.

Patient Testimonial:

I made an appointment with Leah Brown to figure out what to do about the ugly fungus on my toenails. Leah patiently explained the options of Laser therapy with anti-fungal cream or taking drugs that might hurt my liver. Naturally I chose Laser and amazingly after two treatments my toenails look great and I can wear sandals again! Leah was so easy to talk with and really cared about me. Thank you Leah.”

Photofacial

Photofacial IPL/BBL: We use the Sciton BBL (BroadBand Light) system which is a type of IPL (intense pulsed light). This light is a gentle, yet highly effective treatment for brown spots, sun-damage, dilated vessels, rosacea, and acne. The down-time is minimal (most resume activities/work the next day), and patients notice improvement after the first treatment. To achieve significant results, we recommend 3-5 treatments once every month. It is effective on the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. Many maintain their results with additional “touch-ups” every 6-18 months.

Patient Testimonial:

"I recently saw Leah Brown for sun spots on my face and was worried about the pain of laser treatment. Leah took the time to reassure me. Her nurse then carefully applied numbing medicine beforehand and then the laser therapy was smooth, quick, and PAINLESS! Better yet the spots are gone! Leah and her staff were so caring and put me at ease. Thanks again Leah for your excellent care."

Skin tightening laser

Skin tightening: The Exilis uses safe infrared light energy and skin cooling technology to comfortably deliver heat below the skin’s surface. By heating the collagen within the dermis, one’s own collagen production is increased leading to tissue tightening and reduced skin laxity. The most popular areas to treat at the jaw-line and neck. We recommend a series of 4-5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.

Laser Resurfacing

We use the DEKA DOT CO2 fractional laser for treatment of sun-damage, brown spots, dilated vessels, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. The DEKA DOT is the newest technology-- a versatile, extremely powerful laser which can be tailored for a customized treatment. It can provide anywhere from a lunchtime peel to a resurfacing and lifting procedure. The treatment itself is relatively painless, with downtime ranging from days to weeks, depending on the strength of treatment desired. Most patients need one treatment.

Patient Testimonial:

After having SmartXide DOT laser procedure done at Bernardo Dermatology on my face, neck and chest , my skin "looks" and "feels" like baby's skin.

Thank you to Dr. Vanessa London and her assistant, Danielle for their excellent treatment and post-operative care. They made my experience a comfortable one. I'm extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Bernardo Dermatology."

Happy Patient,
Tamara S.

Infini

Lutronic Infini: The Infini is the latest in skin tightening technology. Using a grid of super-fine needles, the Infini delivers precise heat energy deep into the dermis, at multiple levels, and spares the top layer of skin. This allows damage to the collagen, stimulating one’s own collagen synthesis, and thus skin tightening. Further, bypassing the surface of the skin minimizes side effects and shortens down time. This is an efficient, safe, rejuvenating procedure, particularly for the jaw line and neck, and is also proving to be one of the most effective ways to treat acne scarring.
