Non-surgical body treatments are a suite of cosmetic procedures that elevate your contours and improve skin tone and texture without surgeries or extensive downtime. From achieving smooth, hair-free skin through laser hair removal to eliminating unsightly veins with laser vein removal, these advanced techniques provide safe and effective results. Dr. Robert Guida uses cutting-edge laser technologies to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic procedure to reduce or eliminate unwanted hair growth. This non-surgical technique utilizes concentrated beams of light emitted by a specialized laser device to target and disable hair follicles at their root. The principle behind laser hair removal is based on the absorption of laser energy by the pigment (melanin) in the hair. As the melanin absorbs the light energy, it converts it into heat, which damages the follicle and inhibits future hair growth.
One of the advantages of laser hair removal is its precision. It can selectively target unwanted hair while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. Additionally, laser hair removal can treat larger areas of the body, such as the legs, back, or chest, in a relatively short time, making it a convenient option for those seeking a long-term solution to unwanted hair. While multiple sessions are required for optimal results, most individuals can achieve nearly permanent hair reduction after 6 to 8 sessions.
Laser Vein Removal
Laser vein removal, also known as laser vein therapy, is a non-invasive medical procedure to eliminate or reduce the appearance of unsightly veins, particularly spider veins and small varicose veins. This treatment uses the power of laser technology to target and close off these problematic blood vessels without surgery. It’s a popular choice for individuals seeking a safe and effective solution to improve the appearance of their skin.
During laser vein removal, a highly concentrated beam of light is directed at the targeted veins. The heat from the laser causes the blood vessels to coagulate and collapse. Over time, the body absorbs the treated veins, leading to their gradual disappearance or significant reduction in visibility. Laser vein removal selectively targets the problematic or damaged veins while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. This procedure is relatively quick, requires minimal downtime, and can result in smoother, vein-free skin.

- Spider veins (telangiectasia)
- Small varicose veins
- Broken capillaries
- Rosacea-related redness
- Vascular birthmarks (e.g., port wine stains)
