Cosmetic and Laser Surgery at the Lahey Outpatient Center, Lexington, provides safe and effective laser services to treat a variety of conditions, including:
Our lasers can also be used for skin resurfacing and removal of hair and tattoos. We use the most technologically advanced lasers available today. In addition, because patient safety is our first consideration, all laser procedures are performed either by a physician or a nurse under a physician's direction.
We use a Gentle Max Pro laser for permanent hair removal. This laser is safe, effective, creates minimal discomfort and requires little recovery time. Only brown and black hairs can be treated. Multiple treatments are typically needed to achieve desired results.
Fraxel Laser Treatment is a new approach to treating aging and sun-damaged skin. It decreases fine lines and wrinkles, age and sunspots, acne and surgical scarring, and melisma (brown patches on your face). It also improves the tone, texture and color of your skin. Fraxel can treat your full face, neck, chest and hands, and recovery time is minimal.
Physicians worldwide consider the VbeamTM laser system the "gold standard" for treating a wide variety of vascular skin conditions.The Vbeam laser system is less painful than other vascular laser systems because it features an exclusive technology known as DCDTM, or Dynamic Cooling Device, which sprays a liquid onto the skin before each laser pulse. This allows for cooling of the upper layers of skin, thus decreasing discomfort.The Vbeam laser system, available at Lahey's Lexington and Burlington locations, can be used to treat a wide variety of vascular lesions, including:Telangiectasias: spider veins or broken blood vessels on the face or legsRosacea (red face): a blush or sunburned appearance of the skin around the nose, chin and cheeksAngiomas: small, red spots that may be slightly raised or just beneath the surface of the skinPort wine stain birthmarks: vascular lesions that grow rapidly after birth and may impair the function of another organScars: red, raised scars that are often caused by surgery, trauma or burnsRed stretch marks: frequently appearing after pregnancy over the stomach, thighs, buttocks, and lower back
