Laser and Light Sources

Lasers and light devices are essential tools in the practice of modern dermatology. At AboutSkin Dermatology we use a wide variety of lasers and light devices for the treatment of several different skin conditions.

Laser procedures work by precise heating of tissue that occurs when laser energy is absorbed within the skin. Each skin condition responds best to a particular type of laser or light device.

Our physicians are well trained in identifying the most appropriate laser or light treatment for your particular need. We aim to maximize results while minimizing unwanted side effects. We are committed to offering the most up-to-date laser and light-based technologies that have proven efficacy and safety.

 dr-joel-bio-n“Dr. Cohen is a wonderfully skilled surgeon. I went to him as I was told he was “the man” for botox, restylane and lasers. Not only did he do a fantastic job that looks completely natural (with a laser called “The Groove”), but he even found a skin cancer near my eye. He did Mohs surgery on it, and you simply can’t even see a scar. I found him to be totally down-to-earth and humble, but I did found out that he is very very famous. His staff was wonderful and caring as well. I have sent my husband and friends in. “
