At Khrom Dermatology, we have laser technology capable of addressing multiple cosmetic concerns: hair removal, broken blood vessels, brown spots, dull skin, acne scarring, and wrinkles. We also have lasers addressing medical concerns, such as psoriasis, vitiligo, and atopic dermatitis.
CONDITION: Photodynamic Therapy For Acne
Photodynamic Therapy (Kerastick) For Acne
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) kills the p. acnes bacteria in your skin, decreases sebum production and provides long term improvement of inflammatory or cystic (not comedonal) acne.
The treatment utilizes a drug, called Levulan ALA, to specifically target inflammatory acne at its root. Levulan has been used in the skin for decades to treat severe sun damage and skin cancers in adults. The product, called Kerastick, is applied topically (directly on the skin) and allowed to absorb painlessly for approximately 1 hour into the sebaceous glands of the skin. A light or laser source is then used to “photo-activate” the Levulan ALA and thus directly affect and smart bomb the hair follicle and sebaceous glands. In addition, the laser up-regulates the production of collagen causing significant improvements in scars and textural abnormalities.
The laser treatment itself takes approximately 10 minutes. Patients may feel mild stinging or burning when the skin is exposed to the light or laser source. Afterwards, there is no pain and mild to moderate redness can persist from 0-2 days, like a mild sunburn. For about 24 hours after treatment patients must avoid direct sunlight. Patients usually require 2-3 treatments spaced by 3 week intervals to see significant improvement (80% or greater) that will last for months at a time. Depending on the severity of the condition, the number and strength of the required treatments will vary.
CONDITION: Hair removal, brown spots on the arms, chest, hands, legs
Light Age Alexandrite laser
Trying to get rid of unwanted hair on the face or body is a common problem for both men and women. Laser hair reduction offers results that cannot be achieved with conventional shaving, waxing, plucking, electrolysis, or lower frequency laser and light systems. The laser works by targeting the hair in the follicle, below the skin’s surface.
Our Light Age alexandrite laser is safe and effective for all areas of the body and for men and women of all ages. The laser energy is transformed into heat, which destroys the hair follicle leaving the surrounding skin unaffected. Facial areas such as the upper lip and sideburns, bikini area, upper and lower legs, arms, chest, and back may be treated leaving skin smooth, stubble free and without the irritation of ingrown hairs.
Hair grows in cycles. A minimum of four treatments will be necessary, as the process is most effective on hair during the early growth cycle. After each session, you will see substantial visible hair reduction. The number of treatments required depends upon your skin color and coarseness of the hair. Repeat sessions will be necessary to treat the follicles when they re-enter the early growth phase. Re-growth in between treatments will also come in thinner and finer.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
The number of sessions will vary for each individual and will also depend upon where the hair is located on the body. During the initial visit, the Light Age removes the visible hair and disables those follicles in the “active” phase of the growth cycle. Follicles in the “resting” phase will not be affected. Eventually, as these dormant hairs become active and begin to grow, additional sessions may be desired. Over time, hair growth will be slower and finer.
We recommend a minimum of four treatments, and then a maintenance schedule according to each individual. Prices are per treatment, according to the area of the body.

Versapulse Laser: 3 Lasers in 1
Recent advances in laser technology enable us to treat several problems that involve faulty blood vessels without the severity of black and blue marks of earlier lasers.
The Versapulse laser is a 532nm KTP vascular laser that is highly effective for the reduction of vascular lesions of the skin of the face and body. This laser is a powerful green light that is pulsed through a cold crystal hand piece that cools the skin. The laser feels like a prick and results in immediate blanching (vessel disappears) of the blood vessel with a mild pink puffiness. The mild pink puffiness typically resolves in a few days. Versapulse is a very safe treatment and represents, in our experience, the best method for vessel destruction. Although the Versapulse blanches the vessel on the first treatment, the body will try to reopen these vessels within a few weeks. It is typical to have 1 to 3 or more treatments for long lasting clearance. Birthmarks, scars, and severe cases will respond as well but will require many more treatments.
Broken capillaries, red and raised scars, leg veins, rosacea, and persistent facial flushing are few of the several problems that we can safely and effectively treat with minimal downtime. This laser is also effective for spider angiomas, venous lakes (blue-purple bumps on the lower lip), facial, neck, and chest redness, vascular birthmarks, red stretch marks.
CONDITION: signs of aging on the face, chest and hands
Harmony IPL Treatments With PIXEL
The Harmony IPL Photorejuvenation is a non-invasive treatment that uses Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to erase the signs of aging from the face, neck, chest, and hands. The cooling system that comes with the device greatly reduces the heat felt with each pulse, so that the entire face, neck, chest, even arms and back can be treated. Wavelengths of light penetrate to different levels of the skin, lightening hyperpigmentation, shrinking blood vessels, and stimulating collagen. This is sometimes called Photofacial.
A treatment program typically includes four to six sessions of about 20-30 minutes each, performed at three-week intervals.
What can IPL Photorejuvenation treat?
* Fine lines
* Red blemishes
* Broken blood vessels
* Pigment discoloration such as freckles and age spots
* Enlarged pores
* Coarse or rough skin
* Loss of skin tone and elasticity
* General sun damage
Are There Any Possible Side Effects?
Side effects are rare and because of this, there is no “down time.” You will see results in the complexion and the skin texture of the entire face. You can return to your normal routine and activities immediately. Additionally, treatments are individualized to your specific skin type and tone, which provides the best possible results.

CONDITION: SUN DAMAGED SKIN
The Innovative technology transfers Nitrogen Plasma Energy to the skin’s surface using a non-contact technique, producing controlled, uniform removal and regeneration of sun-damaged skin.
The PORTRAIT® Procedure:
Portrait PSR Reduces wrinkles of all sizes, treats sun-damaged skin, and improves skin tone and texture with a revolutionary treatment. Unlike many lasers, this unique clinically proven technology PSR, transfers heat energy deep into the dermis to initiate cutaneous regeneration, while preserving the skin’s outer layer (Epidermis) for several days following treatment. The intact outer layer of the skin serves as a natural, protective barrier during the healing process. As the new epidermis emerges the old skin will start to shed. With less trauma than the ablative procedurtes, healing is rapid. Recovery time is minimal and easily tolerated, while improvements are dramatic and long lasting. PORTRAIT changes the structure of the skin so that a new collagen matrix is generated. While some treatments lead to improved skin only at the surface, PORTRAIT alters the architecture below the surface creating unique conditions for continuing regeneration and long-lasting improvements in wrinkles, tone and texture.
What Makes PORTRAIT® Different From Other Available Treatments?
PORTRAIT PSR offers the benefits and results consistent with more aggressive laser treatments, but with the convenience and safety of a non-laser device. The treatment can be catered to suit one’s problem and lifestyle. You will see improvements in skin texture, color, tone, and fine lines with a single treatment that has significantly less discomfort and shorter recovery time than with more aggressive laser treatments. In addition, the PORTRAIT can be used to treat specific areas such as wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Dr. Khrom will help cater the appropriate treatment regimine for each patient.
Is The PORTRAIT Procedure Safe?
PORTRAIT is very safe and its heating effect is highly localized. It does not involve the kind of intense, non-specific light radiation found with resurfacing laser treatments, yet it delivers comparable results with fewer side effects.
What Does It Feel Like And How Long Does It Take?
You may experience a sensation of heat during this brief procedure. Generally a full face treatment can be completed in approximately 15 minutes. All treatments require application of a topical anesthetic before the procedure and a few injections of local anesthesia for improved comfort. During your initial consultation Dr. Khrom will recommend treatment settings appropriate for your skin type and the desired results.
How Long Will The Downtime And The Effects Last
After one week of sunburn-like recovery, the results will be seen almost immediately. However, one of the unique characteristics of PORTRAIT is that your skin will continue to improve over time. Patients from clinical studies have reported ongoing improvements even a year after treatment.
