Laser Skin Treatments - Boston South Shore
We use cosmetic lasers to treat a variety of skin conditions. Call to schedule a free skin care evaluation and we can recommend a treatment or treatments for your particular needs.
Stretch marks are caused by a breakdown of collagen. Whether from pregnancy or other weight loss, stretch marks resemble scars — with newer stretch marks ranging from red to purple in color and older stretch marks appearing white or almost silver in tone.
While the appearance of stretch marks cannot be totally repaired, they can be diminished with a laser treatment called Fractional Skin Resurfacing which regenerates skin cells and stimulates collagen to create a more uniform skin surface. A series of fractional resurfacing treatments has been shown to be effective in improving the appearance of stretch marks.
For the initial treatment of stretchmarks, we use the Palomar 1540 laser, which is FDA approved for scars and effective on stretch marks. Dr. Hamori has created a new stretch mark protocol for use in the Skin Spa.

Rosacea / Facial Veins / Leg Veins
Rosacea or broken capillaries of the face, nose and chin may be treated with our Excel V™ laser from Cutera. Rosacea a condition where the facial blood vessels dilate excessively causing redness and flushing. The laser heats the abnormal vessels causing the veins to seal shut. Over time, the vessels are no longer be visible. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired result.
This same laser treatment is effective in treating leg veins and spider veins in the same manner.
Treatment of leg and facial veins with Excel V
After an initial consultation, the aesthetician will determine if treatment with the Excel V is appropriate. Unlike other procedures, injections or topical anesthesia are not required throughout the duration of the 15 – 30 minute procedure.
Depending on the condition being treated, the aesthetician passes the laser handpiece over the affected areas of the skin until the abnormal vessels diminish. To minimize discomfort and protect your skin, the Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism. Download the Excel V brochure.
Cherry Hemangioma Removal
Cherry hemangiomas, or red spots, can be removed when treated with a laser. These unsightly spots usually occur on the chest and abdomen and virtually disappear after treatments.
Brown Spot Removal/Lightening
Brown spots or dark skin lesions (also known as sun spots, age spots) begin to develop over the face and chest as we get older. These unsightly pigmented lesions or seborrheic keratosis can be removed or lightened using laser treatment. Our aesthetician or nurse will first evaluate your dark spots, then use the appropriate laser to gently eliminate or lessen the dark pigment.
We also offer Laser Hair Removal.
