Providence Skin Care

With a focus on skin re-hydration, Providence skin care facilities offer treatments meant to combat the long, cold winters affecting Rhode Island and its residents. Because both humidity and temperature plummet between October and April, excessive skin dryness and flaking, especially, takes their toll on face, lips, hands and feet. Add soaps and shampoos into this scenario and depletion of protective sebum or oils becomes a real problem.


While preventive measures—using a humidifier, plastering bottles of moisturizers all over your body, wearing rubber gloves when cleaning or doing the dishes—may slightly improve the condition of skin during winter, the best way to keep skin vibrant and supple is to regularly visit a Providence skin care establishment for professional skin treatments.

Skinsational Laser Center

According to Skinsational's website, this innovative laser center provides Providence residents with world-class, affordable solutions to problematic skin issues. Board-certified Dr. Luciano Sztulman is a physician and surgeon providing professional and compassionate laser surgery for clients searching for effective ways to eliminate unsightly acne scars, hair, discolorations and other skin issues that stubbornly resist over-the-counter treatments. In addition, Skinsational has recently implemented a hair restoration and hair transplant component of their clinic for both men and women suffering premature hair loss.

This Providence skin care clinic offers the following services:

  • Laser hair removal
  • Rosacea/acne facials
  • Microderm facials
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Mole and pigment removal
  • Botox/dermal fillers
  • Spider vein removal
  • Mesotherapy
  • Chemical peels
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Lipodissolve treatments

Mesotherapy is a relatively new method of reducing unsightly cellulite, promoting weight loss and improving the appearance of sagging and wrinkled skin. The procedure involves injections of microscopic amounts of homeopathic substances, natural extracts, vitamins and pharmaceuticals into areas that need treatment. Unlike liposuction, mesotherapy prevents reappearance of cellulite deposits and requires no anesthesia or hospitalization.

Mesotherapy stimulates cell activity that promotes elastin and collagen production, two important elements in preventing wrinkles and loose skin. It also works on eliminating stretch marks and can contour and reduce fat accumulation in problems areas such as the hips, buttocks and thighs.

Rhode Island Dermatology and Laser Medicine

Health professionals employed by this unique Providence skin care treatment center offer high-tech skin solutions for all forms of adverse skin conditions. For example, photodynamic therapy, called ALS-PDT therapy, provides healing for pre-cancerous growths, and, for acne, the center offers ALA-V-Beam therapy. Botox treatments are available at Rhode Island Dermatology and Laser Medicine as well, using the world-famous Juvaderm fillers to plump out wrinkles and folds for a more youthful and glowing appearance.

Photodynamic therapy can be used to treat actinic keratosis (AK), a skin lesion that begins as a rough, dry scaly patch usually found on the face, chest or back of the hands where sunlight has caused most of its damage. Eventually, areas of actinic keratosis turn wart-like and hard, feeling like sandpaper when touched. If not removed, these lesions may develop into squamous cell carcinomas.

While cryosurgery is often employed to treat AK, the drug 5-flourouracil used in cryosurgery often irritates a patient's skin. For this reason, photodynamic therapy (PDT) provides a more comfortable and faster alternative to removing ugly AK lesions. Additionally, PDT is highly effective in reducing and controlling the severity of acne outbreaks.

More services found at this Providence skin care clinic include relief from herpes simplex or cold sores, eczema, hives, psoriasis and dermatitis. Removal of all types of warts including plantar and genital warts is another specialty of Rhode Island Dermatology and Laser Medicine technicians, who with laser treatment safely and quickly eliminate warts growing on any area of the body. Receiving a professional diagnosis concerning warts is important also, as what many people think is a wart may be a pre-cancerous type of skin lesion that requires treatment and/or expeditious removal.
