LASER Hair Removal

Cynosure Elite MPX™ LASER

Dealing with unwanted hair is a normal aspect of everyday life for the average man and woman. Typically, people have to shave on a daily basis just to maintain aesthetically smooth skin, whereas a large percentage of others use a combination of methods to eliminate unwanted hair including plucking, waxing, threading and bleaching, and this is especially the case for women in the warm summer months.

Some of these methods are not only messy, but they can be painful and most of them are offer only temporary relief. For those who are tired of cuts, nicks, bumps, burns, and the other hassles associated with removing unwanted hair, then laser hair removal may be an attractive option that is worth thinking about. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2011, there were 1,078,612 laser hair removal procedures performed in the U.S., making laser hair removal the third most popular cosmetic minimally-invasive procedure performed in the country.


Multiplex™ Technology

At Boston Acne and Cosmetic Specialists, we are proud to use Cynosure’s Elite MPX™ Aesthetic Workstation which is powered by the powerful MultiPlex™ technology.

Unlike its predecessors, this incredible technology does not compromise results by offering just one wavelength that is limited to treating a small range of skin types and conditions.

  • Treatment for pigmented lesions
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne scars

LASER Treatment of Spider Veins in Boston

We’re here for you.

If you sometimes avoid showing your legs because you have spider veins — those small clusters of red, blue or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves and ankles — you are not alone. It’s estimated that at least half of all women are bothered by this common cosmetic problem.

Technically speaking, spider veins, or telangiectasias, are too small to be called varicose veins, usually less than 3 mm. Still, like varicose veins, these thin, thread-like veins are enlarged and non-functioning. Causes of spider veins are multiple and include heredity, pregnancy, hormonal factors, weight gain and occupations that necessitate prolonged sitting or standing. Their red, blue, or purple appearance comes from the fact that they lie very close to the surface of the skin. These small veins are primarily cosmetic in nature and can appear on the legs, face or chest. Although spider veins are rarely a medical issue, many of our patients seek to eliminate them to enhance the aesthetic appearance of their skin.

Many people have spider veins but they’re not sure what to do about it. Over the years, we’ve developed extensive experience in the treatment of spider veins on the face and body using the most advanced LASER available today, the Elite MPX. So we, at the Boston Skin Essentials, want you to know that we’re here for you every step of the way, offering resources and answers to all of your questions as we help guide you to a better looking skin.

Spider veins are usually harmless, though they can sometimes cause aching, burning or pain, especially when standing or sitting for long periods of time. Laser spider vein removal and laser varicose vein removal are popular because they are minimally invasive, virtually pain free, and require no general anesthesia.

Now men and women alike in the greater Boston area are making unsightly facial and leg veins a thing of the past, thanks to Boston Acne and Cosmetic Specialists. No more painful injections! With the most advanced technology, a unique design, integrated cooling system, dual wavelengths and a revolutionary multiplex treatment modality, the Elite MPX LASER can safely and effectively treat spider veins of varying sizes on men and women of all skin tones. Examples of results achieve by the Elite MPX are displayed in the Photo Gallery for your consideration.
