I am a board certified obstetrician/gynecologist who started working with aesthetic lasers after retiring from the delivery of babies in 2005. My first laser was my laser workstation to perform laser hair removal, vein treatments, pigment removal and facial skin revitalization. Over the subsequent years, I expanded my laser offerings to include laser tattoo removal and body contouring. I still practice general gynecology during the weekdays, but have been fascinated with the explosion of new aesthetic laser treatments that have enabled us to minimize patient downtime. Most of us don't want to have something done only to be embarrassed to go out in public for several days with a red, splotchy face. We love having these treatments and the results they bring, but we don't want everyone to know that we had something cosmetic done to ourselves.
I do laser treatments; I neither do cosmetic surgery, nor do I perform injections of neurotoxins and fillers. While I know how to do the latter, I have chosen to concentrate on working with my lasers. If you seek surgical revision, then a plastic surgeon is who you need to address your concerns.
When you become my laser patient, you are my patient, not my client. As my laser patient, my goal is to provide you with the best possible laser care, whether it is through my office, or through another physician. I occasionally will refuse to treat someone if I don't believe my laser can meet his/her expectations. My role in this practice as your doctor is to empower you to take care of yourself, to maintain your health and to boost your confidence in your appearance.
