Laser Treatments in South Jersey
As we get older collagen production decreases, leading to the loss of the full and radiant faces of our youth and leaving the effects of age, accumulated sun damage and scar tissue behind. Advances in cosmetic technology have not only made the quest for youthful, more radiant skin possible, but they’ve also made it safer and easier. Dr. Mohit Sood is a board-certified plastic surgeon who offers a variety of laser treatments at his Linwood practice to correct sun damage, acne scarring, age-related lines and wrinkles, and other skin imperfections. We welcome men and women from South Jersey who are unhappy with the age-related changes to their skin to experience the wonderful benefits of our laser procedures.
At the Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we offer some of the most advanced laser skin rejuvenation procedures available in the cosmetic medical industry. The treatments we offer are designed to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate areas of the skin that have been damaged by acne, age, or the sun. We only use noninvasive laser technologies of the highest quality to ensure short treatment sessions and recovery periods and make skin rejuvenation simple and convenient for our patients.
At the Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we use cosmetic laser treatments to:
- Remove unwanted tattoos
- Improve minor acne scars
- Fade age spots
- Even out skin tone and pigmentation irregularities
- Fade sun spots
- Improve the appearance of creases, wrinkles, and fine lines
Dr. Mohit Sood will address your cosmetic concerns and desired aesthetic outcome during an initial, one-on-one consultation. During this complimentary meeting, Dr. Sood will thoroughly evaluate your medical history and the current condition of your skin to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for laser skin rejuvenation.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Concentrated beams of laser energy allow Dr. Sood to stimulate and remodel natural proteins such as collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the firm and full appearance of youthful skin. Evenly and consistently applied wavelengths of laser energy allow clinicians to resurface skin imperfections in the desired area of treatment without damaging the healthy surrounding skin. The laser technologies we use at the Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery can correct aged and damaged skin with accuracy from the inside out by stimulating the production of collagen and healthy skin cells.
Many of the laser resurfacing treatments we offer require multiple treatment sessions to deliver optimal results. However, the procedures are so gentle, patients can resume their normal daily routine with little to no downtime. Minor side effects such as swelling and redness at the treatment site are typical for most patients following laser skin rejuvenation treatments. These side effects should fade within a couple of days, and any associated discomfort can be managed with topical creams.
Types of Lasers used at the Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery
Alma Harmony XL
The Alma Harmony laser is the first medical cosmetic device that combines UVB, LED, near infrared, pulsed light, and laser technologies with a variety of exchangeable handheld pieces to safely, effectively, and reliably treat a range of skin imperfections. Each technology and treatment have been proven safe by various clinical studies. Dr. Sood uses this combined therapeutic device to treat the following concerns for all skin types:
- Skin Remodeling
- Hair Removal
- Vascular Lesions
- Pigmented Lesions
Alma Lasers is a global leader in the aesthetic and surgical markets, and the Alma Soprano® laser hair removal system sets the standard in terms of laser hair removal devices. You simply won’t find a more versatile laser hair removal machine available. The Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery uses the Alma Soprano® hair removal system for its incorporation of multiple laser wavelengths and an innovative skin cooling system, which allows practitioners to remove unwanted hair for all skin and hair types quickly and painlessly.
This noninvasive laser delivers a beam of high-intensity light to kill unwanted hair at the root without affecting the surrounding skin, making it one of the quickest, gentlest, and most effective systems for removing unwanted hair. Candela’s patented cooling device protects the outermost layers of the skin to maximize comfort and minimize side effects during treatment. The laser only emits light energy, as opposed to emitting light and thermal energy similar to other laser technologies, so treatment is virtually painless for most patients. At most, some patients report a slight prickling sensation during the procedure.
The treatment capabilities of the Candela™ GentleYAG are unmatched, making it one of the most widely used laser technologies in the cosmetic medical industry. This laser is highly effective at permanently reducing hair growth and treating leg and facial veins and wrinkles for all skin types, including dark and tanned skin.
The GentleYAG laser is safe for removing hair from any area of the body, including sensitive areas such as the face and neck, and other areas such as the chest, back, bikini area, underarms, arms, and legs. Men and women, teens, and older patients of all skin types, including Asian and African American skin, may be treated with this laser. However, the hair that will be removed must be brown or black in pigment because the laser is designed to target darkly colored hair. Therefore, the GentleYAG Laser cannot remove blonde or gray hair.
Candela™ Vbeam Perfecta Pulsed Dye Treatment
At the Sood Center for Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery, we use pulsed dye laser skin treatments to instantly improve the appearance of facial veins, rosacea, and port wine stains with minimal recovery time. Our Candela™ pulsed dye laser delivers a gentle beam of light to the blood vessels in the outermost layers of the skin to eliminate skin discolorations and pigmented lesions. The light energy turns into thermal energy as it penetrates the skin, destroying the blood vessels and leaving the surrounding skin unaffected.
Cynosure® Elite is a 2-in-1 laser system that removes unwanted hair and spider veins. This laser system has also proven effective for correcting benign pigmented skin lesions. An adjustable wavelength allows clinicians to customize treatment according to the patient’s skin and hair type. To maximize patient comfort during the procedure, the Cynosure® Elite laser uses patented Smart Cool technology, a dual cooling system, to keep the skin cool during and after treatment.
The Cynosure® Elite is the ideal hair removal solution for patients with a low pain tolerance or a fear of needles. The laser was specifically designed to remove unwanted hair with zero discomfort, and unlike other hair removal systems, the Cynosure® Elite does not leave needle marks or texture irregularities on the skin. The Cynosure® Elite can safely remove unwanted hair for all skin types from the face and neck, armpits, and bikini line.
The Cynosure® Elite’s dual wavelength of light can also penetrate deeply into the skin to gently destroy coagulated blood vessels, making the system highly effective for treating facial and leg veins, as well as noncancerous pigmented lesions. The laser’s adjustable wavelength also ensures that each patient receives the appropriate amount of treatment for their specific needs.
Cynosure® Hoya ConBio MedLite C6 Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser
MedLite’s Q-Switched ND:YAG Laser has a true, flat-top beam profile, which delivers a homogenous beam of energy over the skin’s surface, reducing the risk of injury to the skin and maximizing patient comfort. Dubbed the “workhorse” of aesthetic lasers, MedLite C6’s precision beam technology is unmatched in the industry and known for repeatedly delivering reliable treatments and consistent results with little to no side effects.
The MedLite C6 MultiLite Dye Handpieces have extendable wavelengths, 585 nm for yellow and 650 nm for red, allowing for permanent removal of red and yellow tattoos, which are often difficult to fully remove with other laser technologies.
The ability to provide multiple wavelengths of energy also gives clinicians the versatility to correct:
- Acne scars
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone, melasma, and café-au-lait and other pigmented lesions such as Nevus of Ota or solar lentigines
Laserscope KTP Aura
The KTP Aura laser is the ideal laser system for treating visible vascular lesions, including facial veins and neck and chest veins, with no recovery time. Background redness with no traceable veins on the skin’s surface is better suited for treatment with other laser systems.
Lumenis® ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™
The ActiveFX™ and DeepFX™ lasers are micro-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatments developed by Lumenis®. These lasers were designed to break up scar tissue without surgery or an extended recovery period and deliver a brighter, more youthful appearance to the skin. When used in conjunction, this innovative pair of lasers corrects skin imperfections that are superficial and those that are deep beyond the skin’s surface by stimulating the growth of new collagen and fresh skin cells. This fractional laser system only targets scar tissue and skin imperfections in the desired treatment area, leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.
Dr. Sood uses the Zimmer Cryo 6 Cooling System to maximize patient comfort during laser and BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatments. This award-winning laser and IPL® cooling system reduces complications, such as damage to the skin’s surface, and keeps patients comfortable during laser procedures by blowing constant cold air on the skin before, during, and after laser treatments.
The Zimmer Cryo 6 Cooling System has nine different air flow options to allow for customized skin cooling, and the system can also be used to ease the pain or discomfort of cosmetic injection treatments.
