    SmoothBeamTM Laser Treats Acne
    We have recently added the Candela Smoothbeam diode laser to the arsenal of tools for the treatment of acne. The Smoothbeam laser helps acne by shrinking the oil-producing glands which are enlarged in patients with acne.

    Smoothbeam laser treatment can be considered as an alternative to standard acne medications, such as Accutane or antibiotics, limiting the risks of side effects. The Smoothbeam laser is particularly effective in treating acne, acne scarring and wrinkles around the eyes.

    Free yourself from the discomfort and inconvenience of traditional hair removal methods. Laser hair reduction therapy offers women and men a safe, reliable and competitively priced option for the removal of unwanted body hair. Our specially-trained, board certified dermatologists can treat nearly any area of the body using a state-of-the-art medical laser.
