The largest organ in the human body is also the most visible – the skin. Skin and hair not only cover our bodies to protect them but also presents us to the world. Placing them in the care of an experienced and expert dermatology practice is the best way to protect the skin that protects you. Our dermatologist’s, Dr. Eliot Y Ghatan, MD, primary goal is to protect and enhance your skin’s health and, thereby your health. Beyond basic health issues our practice aims to enhance your sense of wellbeing by assisting you with any appearance issues concerning your skin, nails and hair. For instance, if you have unwanted hair in any area Brooklyn laser hair removal in our office can help get rid of it.

Brooklyn laser hair removal is an advanced technological alternative to shaving, electrolysis, waxing or smelly depilatory solutions. Our office uses a safe low-energy laser to gently remove hair for both women and men. Using the laser we can treat larger areas at the same time such as the back, arms and legs but the laser is gentle enough to use on the face or any other sensitive area. Laser hair removal is as fast or faster than shaving but offers long-lasting hair free skin. The laser uses a cool light to scan the skin under its beam for hair follicles and treats them by disabling their ability to grow in a painless manner. The laser will not damage the surrounding skin.

Patients undergoing Brooklyn laser hair removal will see results very quickly but most will need more than one treatment to achieve long-term hair removal. The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient and depends on a number of factors including the part of the body, hair color, skin type and hair growth cycle since the laser treats the follicles that are in the “on” growth cycle at the time. We treat the area until the hair is gone. Older laser technologies and electrolysis could only treat dark hair but since our office uses the latest laser technology we can successfully treat any color hair even gray. So, call our office for an appointment to get rid of your unwanted hair.

If you are an individual who has spider veins and the desire to change your appearance, than the technologically advanced procedure, laser spider vein removal, is for you. According to our Brooklyn medical dermatologist, ideal candidates are non-smoking, physically healthy and psychologically stable. Laser spider vein removal is designed to diminish spider veins using a highly concentrated beam of light energy. Minimally invasive, this procedure is especially popular because it is practically pain-free and requires no general anesthesia. Since skin tone can also be affected by laser vein removal treatment, it’s best to talk to Dr. Ghatan about the type of laser that is most appropriate for you.

Our Brooklyn medical dermatologist uses laser spider vein removal on our patients with unsightly and unwanted veins. This progressive procedure removes spider veins safely, quickly, and most effectively. Because our lasers are so precise, there is very little risk, if any, of burns or blisters on your skin. In laser spider vein removal, light passes through your skin and sends pulses of energy to the targeted vein with no harm to the surrounding tissue. As the blood absorbs the light, it heats up and causes the targeted vein to shrink, ultimately resulting in its disappearance. Requiring no injections and no incisions, laser spider vein removal patients experience a minimal amount of heat. The actual treatment time is about 20 minutes but may be longer or shorter depending on the severity of the veins and the size of the affected area.

Used to treat deeper varicose veins, Dr. Ghatan uses a small tube to conduct laser energy into affected. First, our Brooklyn medical dermatologist anesthetizes the area to be treated and a very small incision is made to insert the tube. There is a probe at the end of the tube that, once inserted, shrinks vein walls so that blood no longer flows through them. Blood is then redirected to healthy veins, resulting in your improved appearance. In addition to the treated blood vessels, connected veins on the surface of the skin naturally fade as well.

Recovery from laser vein removal is different in every patient but typically there is no downtime. Our patients can resume normal activities almost immediately but there can be some minor bruising which tends to fade gradually within a week or two. Our Brooklyn medical dermatologist will explain that swelling of the treated area can also occur but usually subsides within a few days of the procedure. If new veins appear over time, further treatment may be needed by our Brooklyn medical dermatologist to maintain the results of previous treatment.
