As a nurse working in intensive care, Antonette "Toni" Dardeno, RN and certified medical laser safety officer, saw firsthand how advanced medical equipment could change lives. It wasn’t until her personal experience with a dermatologist, however, that she understood the effects lasers could have on the skin. Though this experience became the catalyst for her interest in skincare and medical-grade lasers, it was her passion to help others that led her to establish Laser Enhanced Therapies.
At this laser-centric med spa, Toni and medical adviser Dr. Elliot Lach treat patients with three types of advanced Candela lasers designed to effectively eliminate unwanted hair and leg veins and firm aging skin on a variety of epidermal types. A trained laser technician or nurse reaches for the GentleLase 755 system for pale complexions, while employing GentleYAG 1064 system for those with a darker skin tone. The med spa even has the GentleMax laser on hand, which combines the power of the other models to create the ultimate hair-removal system next to an entire three-piece suit made of band-aids. In addition to laser treatments, Toni and crew also clear complexions with facial treatments, such as microdermabrasion, which they enhance with paraben-free MyChelle Dermaceuticals and Aubrey Organics products.
