Cosmetic laser procedures at North County Dermatology Clinic in Lakeland, Florida can quickly, safely, and effectively enhance your appearance and self-confidence.
At North County Dermatology Clinic we use state-of-the-art lasers, such as Cynosure Elite, PicoSure, Medlite C-6 Q switched NdYag Laser, and Sciton’s BBL Laser, to deliver the best results possible. Like all of our treatments, a licensed doctor, Dr. Knight, and doctor-supervised licensed professionals including our physician assistant and our registered nurses perform our laser treatments on our premises, with our own equipment.
Lasers deliver energy in the form of photons of light, which is administered to the skin in short, high powered bursts called "pulses." When a pulse reaches the skin, it feels like a rubber band snap. The sensation is usually minor and generally does not require local anesthetics. These non-invasive treatments produce very few side effects, and allow you to resume your regular activities immediately following treatment.
Laser Hair Removal
For many people, superfluous hair is an annoyance and an embarrassment. North County Dermatology Clinic offers the latest in state-of-the-art laser technology to remove unwanted hair safely, effectively, and affordably. Laser treatment is fast, safe, gentle, and effective. The treatment can be used on the face and sensitive areas, such as the nipples, bikini line, and upper lip. Because the laser treats more than one hair at a time, we can easily treat larger areas such as the back, shoulders, arms, and legs. The laser is uniquely designed to provide treatment of a wide range of skin types and hair colors, while protecting the skin from scarring and changes in pigmentation.
For a free consult with our licensed professionals, call (863) 853-3331. Laser hair removal packages are reasonably priced as individual treatments or you can prepay for a package. Pricing is a fracture of what you will pay at the widely advertised chain hair removal centers. White, blonde or very red hair will not respond to laser hair removal. Electrolysis treatment is the only viable option. Click here to watch our video on laser hair removal.

Sciton BBL broad based light (also known as IPL or Intense Pulse Light) treats excess brown pigment and superficial redness caused by rosacea.
Our non-invasive light treatments beautifully improve the appearance of your face, neck, chest and hands which may be affected by rosacea, sun damage (brown spots, freckles) and spider veins. State-of-the-art lasers gently erase the redness associated with rosacea, those annoying red superficial blood vessels coursing over your face and those ugly brown “sun spots”. These treatments are very affordable and usually require two to three treatments at two to four week intervals. Most people will see significant improvement after two treatments. Our laser PhotoRejuvenation is a fast gentle treatment that produces even toned youthful appearing skin with little or no “down time”. A sunburn like reaction is common and sun avoidance is an important part of treatment success both before and after treatments.The cost is $500 per treatment area. A treatment area may be the face, backs of hands, decollette, etc. A second treatment if needed is free within 3 months of your first treatment.

For personal reasons, many people are turning to dermatologists for tattoo removal. North County Dermatology Clinic is the only tattoo removal service in Lakeland, Florida. In July 2013, we will be be able to offer the very latest in laser tattoo removal technology, the PicoSure Laser by Cynosure. There are only a handful of these currently in use in the country, and North County Dermatology clinic is the only one in Polk County, Florida.
PicoSure is the world's first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. Picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology, enabling unmatched photomechanical impact for better clearance with fewer treatments and less fluence (energy).
PicoSure's ultra-short pulse duration creates an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target ink without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn light blue, green and yellow inks, as well as mon-responsive previously treated tattoos, can be removed. Red ink will still respond best using our ndYag Medlite C6 laser.
PicoSure's ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
These small pigment particles are then removed by your body over the ensuing weeks by your bodies own natural processes. Multiple treatments will be necessary depending on the age and colors in the tattoo and whether the tattoo was done by a professional or amateur. Treatments are spaced 8 weeks apart.
If you have been considering tattoo removal or have tried other treatments without success, please call the friendly specialists at North County Dermatology Clinic at (863) 853-3331 to learn more or visit www.cynosure.com. A video and before and after photos will be added to this website shortly.
