Even for minimally invasive procedures such as laser hair removal and BOTOX®, Worcester Dermatology Associates stress the importance of seeking a skilled and experienced provider. They also caution that laser devices be used only for their intended purposes.
Worcester, Massachusetts (December 2011) – Physicians says it’s critical to choose experienced and highly trained specialists to perform cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal and BOTOX in Worcester.
Dr. Seth Kates and Dr. David Simkin of Worcester Dermatology Associates (www.worcesterderm.com) offer a range of medical and cosmetic services for women and men. They stress that safety is paramount, even for “minimally invasive” procedures such as laser hair removal and BOTOX® in Worcester. They emphasize that these types of treatments should be performed by qualified specialists.
“It’s exciting to see how technology has created more effective solutions for patients’ skin care needs,” Dr. Kates says. “The best way to ensuring that you’ll receive the results you desire is by choosing someone with a proven expertise, such as a dermatologist. Also, in the case of laser treatments, patients should make sure that the laser device being used is intended for that particular treatment.”
Men and women turn to laser hair removal in Worcester for a permanent solution that’s an improvement over more traditional methods, such as waxing, shaving and tweezing. The dermatologists at Worcester Dermatology Associates say most patients return to their practice for multiple laser treatments to achieve the desired results.
“During laser treatment, pigment in the lower portion of the hair follicle is targeted by light energy,” Dr. Simkin says. “This process generates heat as the pigment absorbs the light energy, destroying the hair follicle to prevent future growth. This process is extremely effective, and it doesn’t harm surrounding skin and tissue.”
Dermatologists undergo specialized training for skin treatment and complete rigorous residency programs. Dr. Kates and Dr. Simkin participate in professional organizations that keep their members up to date on the latest advances in dermatology including cosmetic and laser treatments.
“Dr. Simkin and I work to ensure the highest level of safety for our cosmetic and medical dermatology services,” Dr. Kates says. “We’re both passionate about providing the most effective treatments and advancing patient education about available options.
“I hope all potential patients seek the advice and experience of qualified skin specialists and choose treatments that can safely and effectively achieve their skin care goals.”
