POSTED ON FRIDAY, JANUARY 09, 2015 AT 3:37 PM by Dr. Jody Levine
Technology is always evolving. While society focuses on the latest new gadgets, we at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology of NYC are constantly staying up to date on the latest in medical advancements. Dermatologist Dr. Jody Levine has been at the forefront of innovative medical techniques for years, and when it comes to tattoo and hair removal, state of the art medical technology is more than just a trend, it’s a constant.
Skin Rejuvenation and Tattoo Removal with the PicoSure® Laser
The PicoSure® Laser from CynoSure® is the fastest aesthetic laser in the world—providing lightning fast speeds to go along with unparalleled precision. While standard methods of skin rejuvenation use nanosecond technology, PicoSure® provides over one thousand times more pulses per second to effectively shorten procedure times and achieve more noticeable results with fewer treatment sessions. The energy from the laser penetrates the skin at the precise depth necessary to reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and scars. Unlike traditional treatments, which use intense heat and cause redness, the use of patented PicoSure® technology delivers better and faster results without the downtime.
In addition, the PicoSure® can be used as a tattoo removal tool. The laser successfully breaks down the ink on your skin into smaller particles that the body can more easily absorb. As a result, the existing ink is eliminated. Advancements like these make PicoSure® the newest and most efficient laser for both skin rejuvenation and tattoo removal. The PicoSure® also boasts a SkintelTM Melanin ReaderTM, which effectively determines the patient’s skin type—allowing for more personalized care.
Hair Removal with Vectus® Laser Technology
The Vectus® Laser is one of the most effective lasers for removing hair. Unlike traditional lasers, the Vectus® uses a wider attachment and Photon RecyclingTM technology to treat larger areas of the body in less time. By using a single concentrated beam to treat the area, there is no need for overlapping—effectively lessening treatment times and minimizing skin irritation.
