Lasers are versatile tools that have delivered many advances in dermatology and dermatologic surgery. They offer the precise treatment of a wide range of applications with a relatively short and easy recovery time.

At Marmur Medical, we are passionate about your journey to healthy skin. Celebrity dermatologist Dr. Ellen Marmur and the Marmur Medical team are dedicated to providing our patients with the industry’s premier laser technologies to produce the excellent results you deserve.

Read on to learn about some of our favorite laser treatments.

Types of Lasers and What They Treat

Non-surgical laser skin rejuvenation offers results you want with low risk and minimal downtime. Our expert team uses several high-powered lasers to treat different conditions with optimal results.

Typically, good candidates for laser skin resurfacing are in good overall health, have a positive outlook, and understand the procedure’s risks.

Additionally, candidates are bothered by the appearance of:

  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Sun damage
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Acne or surgical scars
  • Blemishes
  • Discoloration
  • Pigment irregularities
  • Blood vessels
  • Sun damage
  • Unwanted tattoos

Clear + Brilliant, Fraxel, HALO

Clear + Brilliant is a gentle laser treatment that leaves behind revitalized skin with minimal downtime and minor swelling. It improves skin texture and tone by creating many microscopic treatment zones to replace damaged skin with healthy-looking tissue.

Results include:

  • Improved texture, radiance, and tone
  • Reduction in the appearance of pores
  • Increased softness and smoothness

Fraxel DUAL is a safe, fractional laser technology that pinpoints only a fraction of the skin to restore your skin’s beautiful glow. As the pinpoints are closely spaced, our experts can ensure even results with little downtime. Fraxel DUAL can penetrate the skin deeply with two wavelengths to promote collagen and elastin, repair damage, and remove extra pigmentation.

Fraxel provides:

  • Improved tone and texture
  • Smoother, younger-looking skin
  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Minimized appearance of scars
  • Diminished brown spots

As the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, HALO Laser combines non-ablative and ablative laser technology, making it a versatile treatment for many different conditions. This technologically advanced laser promotes new collagen and elastin production while enhancing tone and texture. It offers both immediate and long-term results by providing smoother, clearer, and brighter skin.

HALO also:

  • Minimizes pore size
  • Treats scars
  • Corrects sun damage/dyschromia
  • Lessens the appearance of pigmented lesions
  • Reduces brown spots
  • Diminishes wrinkles and fine lines

Laser Peels, Deep Laser Resurfacing

Marmur Medical offers MicroLaserPeel and NanoLaserPeel resurfacing technologies because of their safety and proven results. These lasers vary in terms of depth of treatment and recovery time, allowing each one to address different skin concerns.

MicroLaserPeel and NanoLaserPeel remove damaged skin to resurface and refresh skin while promoting:

  • Reduced wrinkle appearance
  • Improved color evenness
  • Overall, healthier-looking skin

PiQ04, Q-Switched Nd YAG

Marmur Medical’s expert team uses the PiQ04 and Q-Switched ND YAG lasers to address moles, hyperpigmentation, birthmarks, sun damage, tattoos, and similar skin conditions. Dr. Marmur specifically chose these innovative lasers for their safety, versatility, and outstanding results.

Both the PiQ04 and the Q-Switched ND YAG lasers use multiple energy frequencies to address pigment-related issues or tattoo inks by targeting deeper or more superficial layers of the skin.

The Q-Switched ND YAG laser targets concentrated areas of pigmentation and tattoo inks in the skin. Additionally, it is an exceptional tool for permanent makeup removal.

The unique technology behind PiQ04 laser treatment allows our expert team to effectively treat many pigments or tattoo colors on all skin types and on a wide range of pigments.
