Laser Photo Rejuvenation (IPL/BBL)

Patients with rosacea or “red cheeks” should start to see results after the first treatment. The skin will start to regain its normal color, however, you must complete your series of treatments, or it will return.

IPL will help:

  • Remove sunspots (face, chest, neck, hands, etc…)
  • Reduce spider veins (Legs etc…)
  • Reduce skin redness/rose colored cheeks (rosacea)
  • Reduce facial veins (Telangiectasia)
  • Reduce active acne breakouts

Does it hurt?

Most patients describe the treatment as the “snap” of a rubber band against the skin. Numbing agents are available upon request. Most patients are able to complete their procedure without any topical or oral pain medication.

What is the recovery time?

Since this is a non-ablative procedure, there is almost no recovery time. This procedure can be done over a lunch hour and the patient can go back to work. Patients should understand that there is the possibility of redness and swelling for up to 48 hours post treatment. When treating brown areas or sunspots patients need to be aware that the spots will get up to three shades darker and may take up to three weeks to fully disappear.

How many treatments do I need?

Although IPL results improve over time, patients experience a tightening of the skin immediately and will see sun damage, veins, and rosacea subsiding immediately.

Are there any side effects?

Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, some patients may experience light swelling, light scabbing (flaking of damaged cells), blistering, and mild discomfort. All of these side effects will fade over time.

Erbium — Laser Treatment Promoting Healthy Skin Growth

Erbium laser treatment is a highly effective procedure used for skin resurfacing and rejuvenation. It uses an Er:YAG laser to precisely remove the outermost layers of aged or damaged skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. The laser's light energy effectively penetrates deep into the dermis, boosting collagen production and addressing skin conditions internally.

Benefits of Erbium laser treatment can include:

  • Wrinkle Reduction: The Erbium treatment effectively reduces the appearance of moderate to deep lines and wrinkles, leading to smoother, younger-looking skin.
  • Skin Tightening: By stimulating collagen production, Erbium laser treatment can improve skin elasticity and firmness, helping to counteract sagging.
  • Pigmentation Correction: Erbium can effectively treat age spots, sun damage, and other forms of hyperpigmentation, resulting in a more even skin tone.
  • Scar Improvement: This treatment can reduce the visibility of acne scars, surgical scars, and other types of skin irregularities.
  • Skin Resurfacing: By removing the outer layers of skin, Erbium promotes the growth of new, healthier skin cells, improving overall skin texture and appearance.

Erbium laser treatment is a minimally-invasive procedure. It requires little to no downtime, depending on the depth and extent of the treatment.

Profractional Laser — Stimulating New Collagen Growth

Profractional laser treatments use advanced laser technology to create tiny, deep columns in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing process and promoting new collagen growth. This leads to revitalized, healthier, and younger-looking skin. This can significantly boost patients' self-confidence and satisfaction with their looks.

Profractional laser treatment benefits include:

  • Wrinkle Reduction: The treatment effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in smoother and rejuvenated skin.
  • Skin Tightening: By stimulating collagen production, ProFractional laser treatments can improve skin elasticity and firmness, combating sagging skin.
  • Scar Improvement: Profractional laser treatment is highly effective in reducing the visibility of acne scars, surgical scars, and other forms of skin irregularities.
  • Skin Resurfacing: This procedure promotes the growth of new, healthier skin cells, improving overall skin texture and appearance.
  • Pigmentation Correction: Profractional laser treatment can address hyperpigmentation issues such as sun spots, age spots, and uneven skin tone, leading to a more balanced complexion.

ProFractional laser treatments are considered minimally invasive. They target only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving surrounding tissue untouched, which facilitates faster healing.

Laser Hair Removal — Inhibit Growth of Unwanted Hair

Laser hair removal is a popular and non-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses concentrated light to target and destroy hair follicles, inhibiting future hair growth. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, we use of the advanced Sciton Joule Laser.This treatment is suitable for various areas of the body, including the face, legs, underarms, bikini line, and more. It involves only minimal discomfort, likened to the snap of a rubber band against the skin.

Some key benefits and purposes of laser hair removal include:

  • Ingrown Hair Elimination: Laser hair removal reduces the risk of developing ingrown hairs, which can cause inflammation, bumps, and itching.
  • Prevention of Hair Regrowth: Unlike waxing and plucking, which require some regrowth between sessions, laser hair removal targets the hair follicle — preventing regrowth and providing smoother skin for longer periods.
  • Efficiency and Precision: The treatment is efficient and precise, targeting hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin. It's an effective way to get rid of unwanted hair.
  • Long-Term Solution: While multiple sessions are often required for optimal results, laser hair removal offers a long-term solution for unwanted hair, potentially saving time and money spent on razors, shaving cream, and other temporary hair removal methods.
  • Improved Skin Texture: By eliminating hair at the root, laser hair removal leaves skin softer and smoother, without the razor bruises or stubble associated with shaving.

We recommend six sessions followed by yearly maintenance sessions.

Our Faqs


If I am seeking to undergo a combination of procedures, will they be done together or consecutively? What is the timeline for multiple procedures?


The answer depends on multiple factors, including the specific combination of procedures, your recovery rates, your age and health status, and your behaviors or habits. More invasive surgeries typically require recovery time ranging between 6 and 12 weeks to 6 months, and surgeries to the same area of your body will also generally require recovery time between procedures.

However, if you are in good health and the combination of procedures in question will be performed on different parts of your body and are not especially invasive, a combination of procedures could potentially be approved together on a case-by-case basis. It is imperative that the combination of procedures does not compromise your healing, and your attention to prescribed pre-operation and recovery habits also plays a significant role. Schedule a consultation for an assessment and guidance regarding the procedures you are considering.


Will it be obvious that I “got work done” after my procedure?


While aging affects us all, there are steps we can take to put forth a more vibrant appearance. We seek to perform subtle adjustments to address imperfections and the wear of time while retaining your natural look. While you should notice an improvement, the glaring changes or distortions in appearance you are concerned about and may have seen from other surgeons’ work do not meet the standard of quality plastic and cosmetic surgery we perform in our office.

Dr. Frederic M. Barr is a board-certified Plastic & Cosmetic Surgeon with over 30 years of experience performing Plastic Surgery in South Florida. We enhance and refine your appearance according to your goals. Review our Gallery of Before & After Photos to see some examples of our work.


What does Breast Explant Surgery entail, and will my breasts be “back to normal” after the surgery?


For patients with Breast Implant Illness (BII), which can include allergy, auto-immune, and thyroid hormone issues, this has been an emerging topic with significant press coverage in recent years. Although numerous medical professionals have demonstrated varying responses to these women’s concerns, we believe in addressing these women’s experiences and symptoms. In response to this phenomenon, we have also chosen not to perform new breast implant surgeries. We perform Total Capsulectomy on patients with breast implants, which involves the removal of both the saline or silicone implant and the capsule around it.

Removal of the implants and surrounding scar tissue has been shown to improve women’s health concerning these symptoms. While some women choose no further procedure following Breast Explant Surgery, some patients elect to have a Mastopexy procedure that involves reshaping the breast tissue for a pleasant cosmetic breast appearance. We welcome your specific questions regarding these procedures and their anticipated effects for your situation. See our Breast Implant Explantation (Total Capsulectomy) page for more detailed information, including before-and-after photo examples.


Are injectables safe, and are some safer than others? What are the dangers, and how can I avoid them?


We only utilize injectables and safe procedures for our patients, though any procedure involves some degree of risk. Proper performance and the surgeon's skills and experience performing the procedure are vital factors affecting patients’ safety. At Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, our surgeon is Board-Certified, with over 30 years of experience. We enforce a high standard to maintain safety for our clients and competitors. See our Injectable Procedures Overview for a list of injectable procedures and more information on each.


What options do you have for Reconstructive Surgery?


We perform Breast Reconstruction After Cancer, Hand Reconstruction, Nose Cancer Reconstruction, and Cleft Lip Repair.


Can I pursue financing options if my health insurance does not cover cosmetic or reconstructive surgeries?


We can address your specific procedure questions and a range of financing plans that include interest-free and long-term options during a consultation. Ask us about CareCredit, a healthcare credit card designed specifically for cosmetic or reconstructive procedures not covered by health insurance. The Alphaeon credit card is another option that offers flexible monthly payment options, and Prosper Healthcare Lending provides another means to pay. See our Plastic Surgery Financing Options page for more information.
