Dr. Robert Anolik mentioned in Gwyneth Paltrow publication, goop!

Robert T. Anolik, M.D., featured in goop (a weekly publication curated by Gwyneth Paltrow) as the New York doctor to see for laser hair removal.

Though it's arguably more painful than a visit with a waxer, committing to laser hair removal has its rewards: Namely, after six sessions or so, you never have to worry about your nether regions again. It's a big up-front expense, but cheaper in the long-run if bikini care is on your monthly to-do list.

"With locations in New York City (he's in Dr. Brandt's office) and Southampton, Dr. Anolik is tops. In addition to being best-in-class for lasering, he's the clinical assistant professor of dermatology at both the NYU School of Medicine and the Medical College of Cornell University." - goop

Our Center Offers the First FDA Cleared Picosecond Laser For the Treatment of Tattoos and Pigmented Lesions

December 4, 2012

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York offers New York’s first Picosecond laser for tattoo and pigmented lesion removal.

The FDA has cleared the PicoSure™ laser for tattoo and pigmented lesion removal. The approval is based on the clinical work performed at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York under the direction of Dr. Roy G. Geronemus which has been published in the Archives of Dermatology. At the present time there are three PicoSure™ lasers in the world, two of which are at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York,  located in midtown Manhattan.

The PicoSure™ laser delivers short bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second and more rapidly clears almost all tattoos, especially blue and green colors which have been difficult to remove by other lasers. The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York study included 22 subjects with multicolored and recalcitrant tattoos that were treated with PicoSure™ over a two-week period. The results demonstrated greater than 80% overall tattoo clearance. On average, 94% clearance was achieved for blue and green ink.

PicoSure™ laser treatments are performed with local anesthesia and are only performed by board certified and fellowship trained dermatologists at our center.
