Cosmetic Laser Services Rhode Island
Cosmetic skin resurfacing lasers are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your skin and keep your skin looking as young as you feel. As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity, causing deep lines and wrinkles. Years of exposure to weather and the elements also causes our skin to break down, causing redness, brown spots, and general dullness of complexion. Whether you are looking to target specific skin imperfections or get an overall fresh new look, we have a laser that will fit your needs. Read on to learn more about the types of laser treatments that Dr. Enzer offers.
Lasers for Resurfacing and Anti-Aging
This revolutionary skin laser delivers noticeable results with far less downtime than other skin lasers. Its secret is in the fractionated laser technology, which lay down microscopic columns of laser energy to the skin while leaving the surrounding areas intact for faster healing time. The treated areas then begin the healing process and produce more collagen, which in turn helps to improve skin tone and texture while diminishing wrinkles, sun damage, irregular pigmentation, and other signs of aging.
Treatment with Fraxel® takes less than an hour and is performed right here in our office. The end result is skin that looks younger and more refreshed, without having to take a lot of time out of work or your social life. For maximum results, 3 to 5 sessions spaced at least 4 to 6 weeks apart is recommended.

Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Laser Resurfacing
Carbon dioxide (CO2) lasers are the gold standard of cosmetic skin lasers. Recent developments in technology have made these lasers safer and more effective than ever before. CO2 lasers use an intense beam of light to heat and vaporize precise layers of damaged skin tissue without harming surrounding healthy tissue. The results are incredible – the skin’s tone and texture is noticeably improved, and brown spots, freckles, scars, wrinkles, and irregular pigmentation are diminished, if not completely corrected.
Dr. Enzer uses the Lumenis Carbon Dioxide Ultrapulse Laser® and has treated hundreds of patients for over 20 years. Although the CO2 laser is performed as an out-patient procedure and has a moderate amount of downtime, just one treatment gives you results that will last for years to come.

Lasers for Redness, Brown Spots, and Tattoos
Vbeam® Vascular Laser
Do you have pesky red spots or broken blood vessels that never seem to go away? Hundreds of patients have had these vascular imperfections corrected by Dr. Enzer with the Vbeam® vascular laser. This laser is especially effective at diminishing redness from rosacea, hemangiomas (red or reddish-purple raised bumps), telangiectasia (broken blood vessels, such as around the nose), spider veins, red scars, vascular birthmarks, port wine stains, and other vascular malformations.
The Vbeam® laser is a quick in-office procedure with very little downtime or side-effects. Hundreds of patients have been successfully and safely been treated by Dr. Enzer with the Vbeam® laser.
YAG Laser for Brown Spots and Tattoos
The YAG laser has become the standard of care for removing brown spots. This powerful laser reaches deep into the layers of skin to dissolve dark pigment, so in just one visit, age spots, birthmarks, freckles, and other dark pigmentation can be lightened or removed. Occasionally a touchup treatment may be needed, but oftentimes just one treatment with the YAG laser is enough to remove the most stubborn of brown spots. The YAG laser is safe for use on the face, and can also be used in other sun exposed areas such as the hands, arms, and legs. If your brown spots haven’t responded to treatment with creams or chemical peels, then laser treatment with our YAG laser may be right for you.
The YAG laser is also the safest and most effective treatment method for tattoo removal. Before lasers became available for cosmetic use, the only options available to those who wanted to get rid of their tattoos were covering them up with makeup, burning off the tattoo with risky acid treatments, or invasive surgical excision. These days the clear choice for tattoo removal is the YAG laser. There is very little downtime when used properly and very little risk of side effects or scarring. Patients should expect to have multiple treatments, spaced out every 4 to 8 weeks. Not every tattoo can be completely eliminated, but many patients have found incredible success removing their tattoos with Dr. Enzer and the YAG laser.
