Laser procedures are growing in popularity as an alternative to plastic surgery. In Palm Beach County, many dermatologists are offering specialized laser treatments for everything from wrinkles to redness.
- Dr. Diane Walder, a dermatologist based in Bay Harbor Islands with an office in Delray Beach, offers a number of laser treatments. Laser genesis uses a single wavelength to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, redness and scars. By heating the upper dermis of the skin, the laser stimulates collagen regrowth, resulting in improved overall skin appearance.
- Limelight, also offered by Walder, is a device that uses a spectrum of wavelengths to target vascular and pigmented cells while leaving healthy ones untouched. This process can be done on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands and legs and is an effective treatment for photoaging, damage caused by prolonged exposure to the sun. (305-866-2177, dianewaldermd.com)
