Dr. Farvolden is an expert in cosmetic laser treatments that efficiently and effectively improve the appearance of unwanted/unsightly skin lesions and conditions.
His cosmetic specialties include:
Pulsed-Dye Laser (PDL) – a concentrated beam of light targets blood vessels in the skin, treating rosacea, hemangiomas (blood vessel growths), and facial and nasal veins while leaving all surrounding areas undamaged.
Alexandrite Laser – a pigment-specific laser removes excess pigment from the skin, greatly diminishing or completely eliminating brown spots, liver spots, and age spots anywhere on the body.
PDT Blu-Light Therapy – LED light triggers the destruction of pre-cancerous skin lesions in large surface areas as prevention to stop progression of these areas into skin cancer.
