Laser Treatments

Lasers and light sources have revolutionized the way we treat skin abnormalities. Using an intense beam of light, lasers can heat and destroy skin imperfections, such as birthmarks, tattoos, age spots, freckles, enlarged blood vessels and unwanted hair, without damaging the rest of the skin. Lasers can also be used to heat the undersurface of the skin to tighten loose skin, or peel the skin surface to remove sun damage and wrinkles. At New York Laser & Skin Care, we continuously upgrade our technology to maintain state-of–the-art equipment in order to provide our patients with the most up-to-date treatments. Dr. Kauvar is a leader in the field of laser surgery. She helped develop and perfect these techniques and has extensive experience treating patients with lasers.
