Laser Treatments in Boston, MA
Neem Medical Spa, led by board-certified physician Dr. Rosy Sandhu, and located in Somerville and Winchester, provides hair removal and skin rejuvenation laser treatments for residents of the Greater Boston area.
Neem Medical Spa offers several types of laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. The treatments require little to no downtime and produce incredible results.
The IPL®, or Intense Pulsed Light, treatment is one of our most popular procedures due to the dramatic results achieved for our clients. Photofacials:
- Remove sun damage
- Reduce wrinkles
- Give the skin a smooth even tone
- Erase fine lines and blemishes
A series of intense pulsed light treatments (IPL®) dramatically improve:
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Brown Spots
- Irregular pigmentation
- Tiny spider veins
- Enlarged pores
- Redness, flushing, and Rosacea
- Wrinkles around the eyes, lips, and forehead
IPL® treatments trigger natural responses in the skin that increase collagen formation over a period of several months. The IPL® skin rejuvenation treatment is quick, safe, and effective with minimum downtime. After treatment, you can immediately resume your normal activities. Six treatments are recommended for the best results.
IPL® treatments can be safely performed on the face, neck, chest, and hands. Each treatment lasts 15 minutes to an hour depending on the area to be treated.
Laser Facials (Non-ablative Laser Photorejuvenation)
Lasers are an extremely effective modality used to treat skin imperfections such as dark spots caused by hormonal changes and sun damage as well as unwanted freckles, acne scars, large pores, broken capillaries, scars and even facial hair. Laser treatments target imperfections at the core, hence, there’s more of a predictable outcome as compared to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Cosmetic lasers are designed with precise controls that allow for accuracy and strength in targeting deep layers below the skin’s surface. The non-ablative laser does not injure the skin’s surface as it targets the deeper skin layers.
Laser Hair Removal
If you’re tired of shaving, waxing, or tweezing unwanted hair, laser hair removal is for you. Our Quanta machine works on all skin types to remove hair from the face, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line and eyebrows. Each treatment produces a 20% reduction of hair growth, with permanent hair loss after six to eight treatments.
Laser hair removal in Somerville utilizes beams of highly concentrated light designed to selectively penetrate the targeted hair follicle and destroy the hair. The heat of the laser damages the follicle, inhibiting future growth while leaving the surrounding skin intact.
Not only is our laser hair removal treatment effective, but we also make it as painless as possible. During each session, we use The Zimmer Cooler, an integrated cooling system that maximizes patient comfort. It won the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Standalone Epidermal Cooling Device from Aesthetic Trends and Technologies.
Laser Vein Removal
Neem Medical Spa offers treatments for spider veins and varicose veins using sclerotherapy and laser vein removal.
Varicose veins are swollen blood vessels that appear just below the surface of the skin. The veins can be red, dark purple, or blue. Varicose veins are commonly found on the back of the calves and the inside of the legs. However, they can form anywhere on the legs, from groin to ankle.
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins, but they are smaller and closer to the surface of the skin. They are often red or blue and look like tree branches or spider webs. They can occur anywhere on the legs and can cover either a small of large area of skin. Spider veins don’t bulge like varicose veins but are more noticeable.
