The use of laser therapy in medical treatments began in the mid-1900s and it has seen exponential growth as technologies have advanced over the decades. At Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD, providing a complete range of medical and cosmetic dermatology, we offer the most effective laser therapy treatments for advanced skin care for the face and body. Laser treatment is highly versatile and can be used on the face and body to improve skin tone, texture, and appearance.
Dr. Panagotacos, a board-certified dermatologist, and our attentive, professional team are pleased to provide the Palomar Icon Aesthetic System by Cynosure, an advanced laser that can be used for a multitude of popular treatments without surgery, such as:
- Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles
- Hair reduction
- Reduction of stretch marks
- Reduction of the appearance of blood vessels
- Pigmentation correction, including melasma
- Skin rejuvenation and photofacials
- Scar removal and reduction
As the only laser therapy that has been cleared by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for its proprietary melanin reader, the Palomar Icon allows our team to evaluate the skin to choose the most effective settings for optimal outcomes. With advanced contact cooling, this laser therapy offers our patients enhanced comfort and fast treatment.
Our practice, Daphne I. Panagotacos, MD, has added several precision handpieces for even greater versatility and benefits over traditional or mainstream laser treatment, such as:
- Hair removal - the Palomar Icon specialty handpieces provide coverage of larger areas of the body like the chest, back, and legs, and can also remove typically-difficult hairs that are light-colored or fine
- Pigment correction - beyond the capacity of single-wavelength lasers, our spectrum-shifting filters provide even heating when treating facial blood vessels
- Skin resurfacing and scar removal - our non-ablative, fractional laser, the only such laser cleared by the FDA for treatment of stretch marks and acne or surgical scars, has a deeper penetration
