The South Shore’s Most Progressive  & Established Dermatology Practice

Corrective Services

We offer a range of treatments and procedures that are designed to alleviate specific skin problems.

TATTOO REMOVAL

The Alex TriVantage laser removes tattoos using a special beam of light produced by an alex andrite crystal. In many cases, the result is a near complete removal of the tattoo.


ACNE/ACNE SCARRING

Even if you’re not experiencing an active breakout, you might still be frustrated by discolorations and scars left behind by previous complexion problems. We can help clear up your skin or erase the signs of acne scars from the past, as well as reduce surgical scarring on the face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back.

Acne and Acne scarring can be treated with Fraxel laser therapy, chemical peels, medical grade facials, microdermabrasion, and/or a combination of these.


VEIN THERAPY

South Shore Skin Center uses the most advanced cosmetic lasers to offer our patients the latest therapy for vein removal. Now, with just one or two sessions, spider veins can be quickly removed without injections and with minimal discomfort.

For vein treatment we offer:

  • GentleYag: Addresses vascular lesions and unsightly leg veins.
  • V Beam: Treats vascular lesions that appear to be purple in color, as well as certain non-pigmented lesions, all with virtually no side effects.
  • GentleMax Pro
  • Sclerotherapy

BIRTH MARKS

Birthmarks are generally harmless and found on ten percent of the population. They can be pigmented (brown or black) or vascular (pink or red), and vary in size and shape. Birthmarks are either vascular (the result of abnormal blood vessels) or pigmented (the result of pigmentation inconsistencies). The treatment for both types typically includes either laser resurfacing or light therapy.


MIRADRY

miraDry® is the only non-invasive. FDA cleared treatment, tested and proven to dramatically reduce sweat and provide long-lasting results. It is a quick, non-invasive treatment that delivers heat and energy directly to the sweat and odor glands in the underarm area. This energy eliminates the targeted sweat and odor glands, leaving you dry and odor free with results starting immediately after your treatment.

COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY (CIT)

Collagen Induction Therapy, sometimes called “microneedling,” is a treatment that improves the appearance of age-related fine lines and wrinkles as well as scars such as those resulting from acne. The procedure can be used on the face, except within the orbital rim, and elsewhere on the body.

As we age and battle skin conditions, the natural architecture of our skin deteriorates. Collagen Induction Therapy is a great way to address this at the cellular level. The treatment comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound healing process. This results in skin remodeling, including the formation of collagen and elastin, the two proteins predominantly responsible for the structure of the skin. The outcome is beautiful, youthful looking skin.

Although this is a comparatively new procedure, it has already gained great popularity. South Shore Skin Center uses the only FDA-approved state-of-the-art device currently available called SkinPen® for this treatment which is minimally-invasive, and requires little downtime. We also feature and recommend the addition of Epidermal Growth Factor during the CIT treatments to further stimulate the production of collagen. When combined with microneedling, the results can be quite remarkable.
