IPL – Intense Pulsed Light

IPL is a popular treatment that is best known for its ability to treat vascular conditions such as broken capillaries (spider veins) and brown spots or (age spots) caused by sun damage.  IPL also stimulates the production of collagen, which plumps up the skin to give you a fresher look, and refines or tightens large pores.  The ideal candidate for IPL is someone with light skin who has sun damage, broken capillaries, some laxity or lack or firmness, and wants to treat all three conditions at the same time.

LHR – Laser Hair Reduction

Laser hair removal is a medical procedure that minimizes the appearance and presence of unwanted hair.  Using the latest technology, LHR can be performed on all skin types.  LHR is safe, fast and provides long-lasting results.  LHR involves using a specific beam of light that targets the pigment in the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.  The hair absorbs the light, which damages the follicle.  This process causes a decrease in the growth rate, pigmentation, and thickness of the hair.  The end result is an 80% reduction in growth.

Laser Genesis

Achieve a vibrant, even skin tone, make pores appear smaller, and smooth out fine lines without any social down time with a series of Laser Genesis treatments. Laser Genesis can be used on all skin types and the treatment feels like a day at the beach.  When used for skin rejuvenation, the laser penetrates deeply into the skin where collagen is manufactured, stimulating an increase of new collagen production.  Laser Genesis improves the skin’s overall appearance, particularly on the face, neck and chest, decreasing fine lines and restoring even skin tones. Genesis tightens pores, improves skin texture, smoothes ruddy complexions and diffuses excessive facial redness, including that caused by rosacea.

Spider Vein Reduction

As we age, it’s very common for spider veins (web-like veins that are bluish-purple or red in appearance) to form in a variety of body areas.  Often occurring on the legs, cheeks, and nose, spider veins can not only be painful, they can be very noticeable on the skin and make us feel self-conscious.  Laser vein removal treatment uses laser energy to precisely target the affected areas and shrink the veins until they disappear.   The entire procedure takes only about 15-30 minutes depending on the number and size of the treatment areas.  There are no needles or injections involved in laser vein removal.

Pelleve – Skin Tightening

Pelleve precisely heats the deep layers of your skin using advanced radiofrequency energy without damaging the epidermis, or top layer.  The heat causes the existing collagen in your skin to contract and tighten.  Also after the treatment, your skin will start to produce new collagen.  The result is an improvement in skin quality, firmness and tightness that you can see and feel.  Pelleve can be used to treat loose skin, wrinkles and fine lines on the face.

MicroNeedle Therapy

MicroNeedling (also known as Collagen Induction Therapy or CIT) is a new innovation in aesthetic medicine for treating the appearance of fine lines, acne scars and improvement of the skin’s overall appearance.  The benefits of micro-needling include a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, younger-looking skin with fewer signs of aging.  MicroNeedling has a positive effect on hyper-pigmentation as well as on hypo-pigmentation, acne scars, traumatic scars and stretch marks and generally creates a fresher appearance and glow to the skin.

Erbium Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing treatment uses safe, fractional laser technology and an Erbium laser to help restore your skin to its original, beautiful glow.  The results: improved tone and texture, erasure of unwanted brown spots, reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes, minimized appearance of acne and surgical scars, and smoother, younger-looking skin.  Fractional laser technology does what its name implies: it pinpoints the laser to only a fraction of the skin.  The pinpoints are closely spaced to ensure evenness of results,.  Because healthy skin is preserved around each point, there is little downtime and the skin typically heals quickly, though there is some swelling and redness afterwards.

HydraFacial MD

The HydraFacial treatment merges soothing and invigorating spa therapies with advanced medical technology to achieve instant, lasting results.  Each treatment uses a series of patented HydroPeel tips – each one has multiple abrasive edges to exfoliate the skin several times with each pass, achieving better, more even results.  The unique spiral design creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities, while simultaneously introducing hydrating skin solutions and potent antioxidants.  The procedure is safe and effective for all skin tones and skin types, including sensitive skin.  We offer luxurious masks for all skin types and conditions to add onto your skin care treatment.

Medical Grade Peels

Chemical peels use a chemical solution to smooth the texture of your skin by removing the damaged outer layers.  Although chemical peels are used mostly on the face, they can also be used to improve the skin on your neck and hands.  A chemical peel is one of the least invasive ways to improve the appearance of your skin.  A chemical peel can help improve acne scars, age and sun spots, fine lines and wrinkles, freckles, irregular skin pigmentation, rough skin, scaly patches, scars and sun-damaged skin.

CoolSculpting – Body Contouring

CoolSculpting is the new, revolutionary way to eliminate stubborn fat on the body.  Using a targeted cooling process, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells, causing them to be eliminated from the body.  The end result is decreased fat around the abs, thighs and waist with little to no downtime.  CoolSculpting targets stubborn fat – the fat that we can’t get rid of no matter how healthy we eat or how much we exercise.  This non-invasive way of reducing fat without needles or anesthesia, is proven to decrease fat deposits from 20% to 40% in the targeted area, causing the body to slowly excrete fat cells over a period of several months after the procedure.  There are no incisions or scarring, and CoolSculpting does not affect the skin.

Kybella – Reduction of Submental Fullness “double chin”

Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness.  Kybella is a nonsurgical treatment used to improve the appearance of the “double chin”.   Mariwalla Dermatology is one of only 4 dermatology practices on Long Island offering this treatment.

Volbella

It may also be used to fill pitted acne scarring in the face. Unlike other fillers, Volbella blends different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid, which allows it to create subtle volume that lasts for up to a year.
