Thanks to the certified aestheticians and laser technicians at Natural Beauty Laser, clients don’t have to rely on good genes or even a rigorous daily regimen to achieve clear skin. The center’s staff uses advanced implements such as the FDA-approved ND:YAG Cutera and Syneron Candela lasers, which permanently removes stubble from notoriously hairy areas, such as the chest and inner cheek. Other treatments combat cellulite via ultrasonic cavitation or minimize the appearance of sun spots and hyperpigmentation with intense pulsed light.
Board-certified hair-restoration physician Dr. Alan J. Bauman halts the steady retreat of hairlines and regrows dormant headfuzz with 30-minute noninvasive laser treatments. Each low-level laser session peppers the head with gentle beams of phototherapy intended to boost circulation, cell growth, and the self-esteem that helps hair grow up strong and hardy. The FDA-approved devices penetrate the deepest layers of the skin, aiming to reduce further hair loss. Since the therapy operates without the use of thermal damage, it aims to boost the growth of hair with no discomfort, unlike applying caustic fertilizers to the scalp.
Cosmetic surgeon Charles Gonzalez-Rivera enhances patients' beauty with minimally invasive procedures that leave little to no scarring.

Dr. Gonzalez-Rivera and his team also foster youthful beauty through nonsurgical aesthetic procedures, using laser technology to remove hair and radiofrequency energy to firm skin or prank call passing truckers.
