Laser and Light-Based Treatments

At The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center at Creedmoor, we harness the power of advanced laser technology to address a wide range of skin concerns. Laser treatments are versatile tools that utilize concentrated light energy to target specific skin issues with precision and effectiveness.

Our CO2 Resurfacing laser treatment is a cutting-edge solution for skin rejuvenation. By precisely removing damaged outer layers of skin, this treatment stimulates collagen production and reveals smoother, more youthful-looking skin. CO2RE® laser therapy takes skin rejuvenation a step further by delivering targeted energy to reduce wrinkles, scars, and other imperfections, leaving behind a revitalized complexion.

Additionally, our Pulsed-Dye Laser, Vbeam Perfecta®, specializes in targeting vascular issues such as rosacea, spider veins, and birthmarks. This gentle yet powerful treatment erases redness and restores an even complexion, helping you achieve radiant, healthy-looking skin.

Trust our experienced team to provide personalized laser treatments that address your unique skin concerns and enhance your natural beauty at The Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center at Creedmoor.
