Laser Treatments

Say goodbye to a variety of cosmetic trouble areas such as sun damage, age spots, scars, broken veins and more.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

An IPL treatment is also called a “photofacial.” IPL improves the appearance of photoaged skin, removing or greatly diminishing the appearance of most sun and age spots (sun-induced freckles), and redness caused by rosacea and broken capillaries, through a process called photorejuvenation.*

It can be used on any area and is most commonly performed on the face, chest and hands. It is an ideal treatment for patients who have mild to moderate sun-damaged skin and who require no or little downtime post-procedure.* Most clients achieve excellent results in 3-6 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart, individual results will vary.*

If you are interested in learning more about how IPL can improve your sun-damaged skin, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich today!

Laser Removal of Brown Spots, Freckles and Age Spots

There are so many names for those brown spots and bumps we get on our skin due to genetics, sun exposure and age – “freckles,” “sun spots,” “age spots,” “liver spots,” “barnacles of age” (that’s a particularly lovely one, isn’t it?) – but they are all basically the same thing – pigmented lesions.

With the EliteMPX laser, we can target specific pigmented lesions and get rid of them for good, usually in only one treatment. After the treatment the lesions just darken and crust off like a scab in 3-5 days, leaving no scars. Individual results will vary in each patient.*

So if you have pigmented lesions you don’t like, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich and see how we can get rid of them quickly and permanently.

Fraxel Dual® Laser System

Fraxel Dual®: The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 is a revolutionary laser system designed to achieve remarkable improvements in skin hyperpigmentation and texture with little or no downtime.

It is used to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.The Fraxel Dual is really two lasers in one, an advancement over the original Fraxel. It utilizes two different wavelengths – 1550 and 1927. The 1927 wavelength targets mild to moderate sun damage, brown spots, blotchy uneven skin tone and fine lines, skin issues that typically start in people in their 30s and 40s. The 1550 wavelength works on more severe sun damage, skin texture changes, deeper wrinkles and even scars that are typically seen in the aging skin of clients in their 50s and beyond. And in people with a combination of these skin issues, both wavelengths of the Fraxel Dual can be used in one treatment session, thus tailoring the treatment to the client’s needs.

The result is that clients have minimal downtime after their Fraxel Dual treatments and can quickly go back to their daily routines. This is unlike the deep ablative lasers of the past, which could give results comparable to those of the Fraxel Dual, but left clients with weeks to months of post-treatment recovery time.*

And the most exciting thing about the Fraxel Dual is the results. With only a few treatments (2-6 depending upon the extent of each individual client’s skin damage), clients can expect to have softer, brighter, more even skin tone with marked reduction of brown spots and significantly improved texture and wrinkles. And with the care and advice from your dermatologist, these results can be long-lasting.*

If you are looking for a treatment that will remarkably improve your skin’s tone and texture, and perhaps have tried other procedures without significant results, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich today and see if the Fraxel Dual is right for you.

LaserFACIAL

Do you have an event tonight or tomorrow (your wedding, perhaps?) and you want to look firm and glowing without any risk of side effects? Then the LaserFACIAL is the procedure for you!

Using a low-fluence setting on the EliteMPX, the LaserFACIAL is the NO DOWNTIME treatment for those who want an immediate firming, glowing, smooth texture to their skin that lasts 24-48 hours.

Perfect for the face, neck and hands, the LaserFACIAL effects also build over time. So once you get multiple treatments (which can be done as soon as 1-2 weeks apart) you will see lasting collagen-building, closing of pores and firming of the skin. And it’s a procedure that is safe for any skin type.*

So if you want immediate results without any downtime, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich today!

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a unique laser treatment designed not only to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and treat a variety of signs of sun damage and aging skin but also minimize enlarged pores, uneven texture, overall redness and mild scarring.

LaserGenesis gently heats the skin below the surface to stimulate your own natural collagen for smoother, firmer skin. This procedure is useful in treating fine lines and wrinkles, while improving our skin’s elasticity, structure, and smoothness.  Tiny veins and capillaries responsible for redness are sealed off, clearing up your complexion for a more even skin tone. Pigment from melasma and hyperpigmentation is broken down to fade the appearance of sun damaged skin.

Laser Genesis is a completely painless procedure.  Many clients describe it as warm, comfortable and relaxing. After treatment, most experience a healthy glow – great to do before a big event!

Results are subtly dramatic, becoming more apparent with time. While you will see brightening effects after just one session, most patients need a series of 4-6 treatments every 2-4 weeks to achieve full results.

To see if Laser Genesis is right for you, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich today.
