At New York Laser & Skin Care, we provide a comprehensive list of services using the most advanced equipment and procedures available anywhere.
Lasers and light sources have revolutionized the way we treat skin abnormalities. Using an intense beam of light, lasers can heat and destroy skin imperfections, such as birthmarks, tattoos, age spots, freckles, enlarged blood vessels and unwanted hair, without damaging the rest of the skin. Lasers can also be used to heat the undersurface of the skin to tighten loose skin, or peel the skin surface to remove sun damage and wrinkles. At New York Laser & Skin Care, we continuously upgrade our technology to maintain state-of–the-art equipment in order to provide our patients with the most up-to-date treatments. Dr. Kauvar is a leader in the field of laser surgery. She helped develop and perfect these techniques and has extensive experience treating patients with lasers.
Skin Cancer Treatment
Patients are referred to our center after they have received a biopsy diagnosis of skin cancer. During your consultation, Dr. Kauvar and her staff will review your medical history, your specific tumor diagnosis and explain the details of your surgery and, if required, possible options for reconstruction of your wound.
Dr. Kauvar is a fellowship-trained specialist in Mohs micrographic surgery. This is a method for removing skin cancers using microscopic control to see the cancer cells while minimizing the amount of skin that is removed.
Treatment of Birthmarks
As a mother of three children and physician to many infants, children and adults with birthmarks, Dr. Kauvar understands the emotional effects that birthmarks can have on patients and their families. Removing a “strawberry” hemangioma from the tip of a little girl’s nose, or a port wine stain that covers half a man’s face is often a life changing event. Fortunately, we continue to make great strides in improving the technology for birthmark removal.

Your skin is your first-line protection against environmental effects—sun exposure, temperature extremes, pollutants and infection. Taking proper care of your skin is essential to keeping it looking young and healthy as well as maintaining the benefits from cosmetic procedures and laser treatments.
