Laser Treatment Services
NYU Langone’s plastic surgery team offers laser treatments that give the skin a more youthful look, remove hair from unwanted places, and provide relief from urinary incontinence and vaginal discomfort.
Our highly skilled, board-certified medical professionals have advanced training in the medical use of lasers. Our focus on your safety and comfort assures you’ll receive a treatment that is gentle, effective, and requires little to no recovery time. It also yields faster results than less advanced laser therapies.
The Sciton JouleTM, a medical laser, offers a combination of light and laser therapy that allows our practitioners to customize a treatment designed to meet your needs.
This treatment works by using heat to stimulate collagen production and, when appropriate, to remove the upper levels of skin cells. This process can tighten skin and reduce the signs of aging. This process also encourages the growth of new cells, which have an improved appearance and function.
Our facial rejuvenation and laser skin resurfacing treatments can help with the following:
- tighten skin and improve the appearance of aging skin
- lessen fine lines and pores
- remove brown spots
- improve acne scars
- reduce redness in people with rosacea or spider veins
- treat spider veins or small blood vessels on the face and body
- remove unwanted hair in people of all skin tones
- improve the color, thickness, and texture of scars
Changes in hormone levels that accompany childbirth, menopause, and breast cancer treatment can affect vaginal health. This can lead to painful intercourse, vaginal dryness, vaginal laxity or constriction, and vaginal atrophy, which is the thinning of the lining of the vagina.
The DiVa Hybrid Fractional Laser technology, also part of the Sciton JouleTM, encourages the growth of new cells in the vagina. These new cells provide improved lubrication as well as tighter, more youthful tissue. DiVa is also helpful in treating urinary incontinence and overactive bladder.
The vaginal rejuvenation procedure takes less than five minutes, and your comfort is our priority. You are cared for by a female nurse practitioner, and can return to normal activities immediately and sexual intercourse within 48 hours after treatment.
