Laser Treatments 101

Laser Treatments

Lasers have made quite a place for themselves in the world of cosmetic treatments, with the ability to meet a wide range of aesthetic goals without the need for surgery. At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of laser treatment options that allow us to customize treatments for our patients with little or no discomfort or downtime. Check out this overview of the many laser options available at our New Jersey office.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoo regret has affected as many as half of those who have gotten body ink at some point in their lives. Our office uses the Alex TriVantage laser for tattoo removal because it is effective in removing most ink colors, even stubborn greens and blues. Laser energy shatters the pigment particles in the ink, so the particles can be naturally eliminated by the body. Dr. Small is able to eliminate the large majority of most tattoos over multiple treatment sessions.

Laser Hair Removal

With its ability to achieve permanent hair reduction, laser hair removal has become a popular way to say goodbye to unwanted facial and body hair. The procedure delivers laser heat into the hair follicle, damaging the follicle so that current hair falls out and future hair has difficulty growing. Like tattoo removal, laser hair removal is performed in a series of treatment sessions to achieve full results.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Laser skin rejuvenation or laser peels are an effective way to exfoliate the skin, treat minor imperfections and signs of aging, and leave the complexion with a healthy glow. At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we offer the Gentle Erbium Peel for those that want subtle results without any downtime and the Matrix Fractional Peel for patients with more significant signs of aging and other skin concerns.

Laser Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins are visible networks of vessels that can appear on the legs or face. While they rarely cause any physical symptoms, they can be a source of significant cosmetic embarrassment. Dr. Small offers spider vein removal at Ocean Plastic Surgery using a long-pulse YAG laser in most cases. This laser is particularly effective in working deep beneath the skin’s surface to remove spider veins or telangiectasia, as well as other types of vascular lesions.

Laser Pigmentation Treatment

Pigmentation marks such as age spots, freckles, and melasma can also be effectively treated with lasers. The variety of lasers currently available at Ocean Plastic Surgery offers Dr. Small the ability to treat a wide range of pigmentation concerns safely and effectively. Our laser devices work equally well on pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.

Laser Treatment for Skin Imperfections

The V-beam at Ocean Plastic Surgery is often the laser of choice for scar revision, redness from rosacea, warts, and congenital birthmarks. This laser targets the hemoglobin in the blood, to collapse blood vessels that lead to skin redness. The device can also transform a protruding scar into a less noticeable white mark on the skin and restore normal skin tone to reduce the appearance of port wine stains.


Laser treatments can usually be performed in our office in under an hour and patients are typically able to return to their daily activities as soon as their procedure is over. To learn more about your options in laser treatments, contact Ocean Plastic Surgery at 732-255-7155.

What Real Patients Say

  • "Thank you for being such a terrific surgeon and doing such a great job with my surgery... I waited a while before I spent the money on myself... putting it off because of the expense or not being sure how I felt about the surgery, but also because I didn't want to have to justify spending money on myself, it's so vain and pretentious but it's not. You can't put a price on how different I feel now... It's life changing. If people don't thank you enough they should."

    - N.S.
  • "I just wanted to thank you for making my first experience with surgery a comfortable and pleasant one. I can not thank you enough.

I could not have asked for a better surgeon and I am so happy that I chose you."
