Your skin tells a story, about your age and even your lifestyle – sadly, it’s not necessarily the truth. Wrinkles, sun damage, acne, and lesions may make you look unhealthy or older than your years. How can you help the beautiful, vibrant you shine through? For many people, the solution is IPL (intense pulsed light), a form of laser skin care available from Worcester Dermatology Associates.
We focus on practical, minimally-invasive solutions for common skin conditions. Get acquainted with Dr. Seth Kates (our board-certified dermatologist) and wonderful physician assistants.

Beautiful Skin at Any Age
Each phase of life brings its own skin care concerns. From acne in our teens to wrinkles as we mature, there’s always something that can be improved. IPL is a versatile technology that has been used for many purposes, from sun spot removal to laser hair removal in Worcester, Massachusetts. At our practice, we use IPL to treat issues that arise at many phases of life, including:
- Broken blood vessels
- Age spots
The treatment is entirely non-surgical. You can lie back and relax as one of our specially trained, experienced professionals moves a device over your skin. The pulsed light emitted by the device is adjusted to a specific wavelength so that it will be absorbed by your skin. Reaching below the surface, the light causes skin renewal from the inside out.
The sensation during treatment may feel like a rubber band against your skin. However, a topical numbing cream can be provided if you desire.
There is minimal downtime after the procedure, so you can get back to your usual routine right away. You’ll come in to visit us several times to achieve optimal improvement – but we’ll make sure that those visits are as pleasant and brief as possible. For added enhancements, you may want to consider wrinkle treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic in Worcester, Massachusetts.
Healthy Choices for Healthy Skin
We take a personal interest in each and every one of the men and women who choose our practice. That means choosing the most effective treatment possible, one that is also time and cost efficient. If that’s not IPL for you, we’ll find something that will work. Depending on your skin condition, we may suggest cosmetic skin care treatments such as Thermage®, laser resurfacing, or chemical peels, or we may discuss medical dermatology treatments for acne or lesions.
Although we have a gift for aesthetics and a great deal of experience in cosmetic dermatology, the overall focus of our practice is on skin that is as healthy as it is beautiful. Therefore, before we proceed with any cosmetic treatment, we’ll make sure that there are no underlying medical conditions (such as skin cancer).
