Laser Procedures

Using the most advanced laser technology, Dr. Lettieri can improve your appearance without major surgery.

Dr. Lettieri has developed a complete program for nonsurgical skin rejuvenation. This is done primarily with lasers and laser-like devices, which allow for treatment of a variety of skin conditions, including spider veins, age spotssun damagefine lineswrinklestattoos, and unwanted hair. One of the following devices may be indicated for the skin condition that exists: Versa-Pulse®, Ultrapulse® CO2 Laser, or Vasculite®. With these techniques, patients can be treated in the office in about an hour and immediately return to their usual activities.

Laser Skin Resurfacing 
Laser skin resurfacing may be indicated if you have fine or course wrinkles of the skin - usually on the face. Laser resurfacing may also be helpful if you have uneven skin as a result of scarring acne or small skin growths, or if you have areas of hyperpigmentation (age spots). A pulsed laser removes the superficial layers of the skin. The advantage of the laser is that the depth of treatment is extremely controlled and predictable. Dr. Lettieri will tailor the procedure to your individual needs. Following laser skin rejuvenation your skin should have a smoother, more youthful appearance with more uniform color and texture. The laser procedure also tightens the skin. Depending on the location and degree of resurfacing, the treated areas may be covered with a tape like covering or with ointment. Healing should be complete in 7 - 10 days.

Laser Tattoo Removal 
Our VersaPulse laser can remove tattoos painlessly and without scarring. In many cases an anesthetic cream is used to numb the skin. The number of treatments needed to remove a tattoo depends on the type of tattoo, the patient's skin color, and colors used in the tattoo.
