Comfortable and customized hair removal anywhere regardless of your skin tone.
It was fast, painless, and totally worth it
Shaving, plucking, or waxing unsightly hair takes time out of your busy day and isn’t a long-lasting solution to hair removal. If you’re seeking a permanent fix, the licensed aesthetician at Dr. Scaffidi’s: Weight Loss, Women’s Health & Aesthetics, can help. They offer laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair for good.
Based on the principle of selective photothermolysis, laser hair removal targets the entire hair structure, from the hair shaft down to the follicle. Light energy with a specific wavelength is absorbed by the endogenous chromosphere melanin, resulting in the rapid heating and subsequent local thermal necrosis of the follicles’ regenerative structures.
For laser hair removal, we use the innovative Lumenis Stellar M22 multi application platform because it’s the most effective tool for permanent hair removal on your:
Face ~ Upper lip ~ Neck ~ Chest ~ Back ~ Abdomen ~ Legs ~ Arms ~ Bikini
Laser hair removal means you can avoid shaving, waxing, plucking, and electrolysis. It helps you gain confidence and improve your overall quality of life.
To find out if you’re a good candidate for laser hair removal, our licensed aesthetician reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines your skin. Laser treatment is safe and effective for all skin and hair colors and types. If you desire permanent hair loss, the procedure is likely a good match for you. Laser hair removal can save you time and money in the long run.
Our aesthetician lets you know how to prepare for laser hair removal. Protect your skin from the sun, avoid sunless tanning creams, don’t take blood-thinning medicines, and avoid waxing, plucking, and electrolysis several weeks prior to treatment. Shave the treatment area the day before your scheduled appointment.
During laser hair removal at Dr. Scaffidi’s: Weight Loss, Women’s Health & Aesthetics, you lie down on a comfortable chair and wear special glasses to protect your eyes. You can even use a numbing cream to make laser treatment more comfortable. A hand-held instrument is used to apply laser energy to your skin and damage hair follicles. The numbing cream diminishes sensations of warm pinpricks or rubber bands snapping. With our state of the art technology, your treatment is quick and effective.
After a laser hair removal session, you may notice skin redness or swelling at the treatment area. Applying ice can relieve discomfort. Protect your skin from the sun, and avoid tanning beds.
Multiple laser hair treatments offer you optimal results, as hair growth occurs in cycles. Although hair doesn’t fall out immediately, you should see remarkable improvements after the first few treatments. Periodic maintenance treatments help you maintain desired results for a lifetime.
Don’t settle for shaving, plucking, or waxing when laser hair removal offers you permanent results. Schedule a consultation or treatment today.
The Ultimate Skin Eraser - erase those spots and blemishes, don't just hide them!!
PhotoRejuvenation refers to the use of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) to treat conditions related to sun-induced skin damage. Are you bothered by freckles or age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, broken capillaries, acne, or just the overall aging appearance of your skin? A PhotoFacial treatment gently and effectively treats a wide range of skin conditions, including:
Your PhotoFacial treatment should not take more than 30 minutes. You may experience a warm sensation as the light is applied to your skin, but the treatment is very gentle.
For 2 to 24 hours, you may feel and see your skin mildly flushed or swollen. Freckles and hyper-pigmented lesions will turn darker and look dry for four to seven days and then start flaking off gradually and naturally.
The normal recovery period varies between two and five days, depending on your skin sensitivity and the treatment performed, but you can expect to see a substantial difference in hyper-pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, and your overall skin texture within one week of treatment.
For some conditions, it may take a few sessions to see the best results. In general, the heavier your skin blemishes, the more treatments you’ll need. We will setup a custom treatment plan for you to obtain your ideal desired results.
PhotoFacial treatments are both gentle and very effective. After you have completed your custom treatment plan, you should have one session of a PhotoFacial once or twice a year as maintenance. Your results will last longer if you take good care of your skin to prevent new problems from developing.
I'm really impressed with how smooth and painless this process went
The laser creates heat inside the blood vessel which closes the vein’s walls, eventually causing the vein to disappear. The laser is very precise and only impacts the selected blood vessel and not the surrounding skin.
During the treatment, you may experience a slight rubber band snap. Most people find it quite tolerable. Treatments will take between 20-30 minutes, depending upon the number of vessels being treated.
In many cases, improvement is seen immediately after treatment – full clearance of the veins might take several weeks as they slowly fade away. In the case of multiple veins, 2-3 sessions in 6-8 weeks intervals may be needed.
Immediately following treatment, darkening of the vessels may be apparent, with slight redness along the vessel. You should avoid hot baths or excessive physical exercise for 1-2 weeks following treatment. Otherwise, there is no downtime so you are able to continue with your normal activities immediately.
Refresh your skin and create a younger, smoother, tighter look
ResurFX is a fractional, non-ablative laser technology, commonly used in conjunction with PhotoRejuvenation to treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne and surgical scars, skin discoloration, periorbital wrinkles, and stretch marks. ResurFX penetrates the lower layers of skin to stimulate collagen growth without damaging the skin’s surface.
The ResurFX has minimal downtime, with a only few days of mild swelling or redness that looks like a mild sunburn which can be covered with mineral makeup.
This special combination treatment improves your overall complexion and texture of your skin by stimulating collagen and erasing irregularities to keep your skin looking youthful and healthy at the surface and below.
The PhotoRejuvenation targets the surface texture and pigment in the skin, including sun and age spots and redness, to even out skin tones. The ResurFX smooths out and resurfaces the skin by penetrating the deeper layers to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
This causes tighter and smoother skin without unwanted spots and tones for a fresh even glowing youthful look.
Faster, less painful and less downtime; it treats the underlying condition in one pass without damaging or heating up the skin’s surface so there is less pain.
A treatment course is typically 3-5 sessions spaced out at 2-6 week intervals
For Radiant Youthful Skin that Lets You Shine
I was amazed to achieve a smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin in just a few treatments.
PhotoRejuvenation of the face ;) The perfect solution for your skin
I was amazed to achieve a smoother, tighter, and younger-looking skin in just a few treatments.
For patients looking to improve skin texture and skin tone, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacials are an ideal no-downtime treatment for the face, neck, décolletage, and hands. After IPL photofacial treatments, patients can see noticeable improvements and healthier, more evenly toned skin.* IPL photofacials can treat pigmentation problems including freckles, sunspots, large pores, and rosacea. For optimal results, IPL photofacials may need to be performed in a series of three or more treatments. Photofacials can treat a large area of skin, making this a quick and effective treatment for patients on a tight schedule.
PhotoRejuvenation with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)
After a month I have smoother, tighter, and brighter skin that I have in years.
Rosacea is a chronic skin condition that expresses itself in redness on the face and sometimes on the neck and chest. The exact cause of Rosacea is yet unknown and many who are affected by it are unaware of their condition.
Rosacea can be effectively treated using Intense Pulsed Light (IPL). IPL uses controlled light in specific wavelengths to alleviate the inflammation, redness, pimples, and uneven skin tones caused by the condition. IPL offers a gentle, long-lasting solution for those suffering from Rosacea by providing a gradual and natural improvement to the skin’s appearance.
Sun spots, age spots and redness are common skin conditions
They are usually a cosmetic concern and vary in size, shape, and depth. Successfully treat pigmentation on both facial and body areas, regardless of skin type, achieving brighter, more uniform looking skin minimal downtime.
Pigmented lesions are hypermelanocytic areas typically induced by sun exposure, the natural aging process or congenital factors. Pigmented lesions vary widely in size, shape and depth. They can be either raised or flat and are usually a cosmetic rather than a medical concern. Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) which targets the melanin is effective in treating benign lesions and clearing them.
Stretch marks from puberty, pregnancy and weight loss can all be treated.
This non-ablative skin resurfacing stimulates collagen growth and tightens underlying skin.
Ideal for patients who prefer a milder treatment approach with less downtime but can be combined with Morpheus8 for a full-thickness and more effective solution.
Uses an advanced scanner technology, CoolScan, to ensure that energy delivery is precise and homogenous making treatment times quick, minimizing discomfort and yet still very effective.
If you’ve ever tried to get rid of stretch marks, you’re most likely well aware that it simply can’t be done with topical, over-the-counter creams or lotions. But now, thanks to recent developments in skin care technology, stretch marks can be reduced or eliminated quickly and efficiently. Using deep, superficial, or a combination of energy-based technologies, patients can enjoy a fast, comfortable treatment free from any downtime.
Stretch marks occur when the collagen in the dermis is torn, resulting in linear scarring to the epidermis that many people feel are unsightly. Women often experience stretch marks following the physical stress of pregnancy, but can also accompany other changes in weight such as puberty, steroid use, or life in general.
Women usually develop stretch marks on the abdomen, buttocks, breasts, and thighs, while men will often also find them in the shoulders. They can all be treated effectively.
PhotoRejuvenation + Morpheus8 RadioFrequency Microneedling
I had my first treatment yesterday and already notice a smoother complexion
- Kyle Richards, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Actress and Television Personality
My skin is so smooth - it’s helped with the wrinkles on my face. I look more awake, which was a big thing for me. I was most surprised by how bright and youthful my skin looks.

Say goodbye to the uneven skin tone that gives away your age.
Say goodbye to unwanted “reds and browns” and even the most stubborn age spots.
Most importantly, say goodbye to the accumulated wrinkles and fine lines that appear with age.
SmoothGlo is a sequential treatment that targets the three biggest signs of aging skin – tone, texture, and volume. By addressing all three areas in one session, SmoothGlo patients are able to dramatically reverse the visible signs of aging and enjoy a brighter, more youthful glow.
SmoothGlo combines Morpheus8 RadioFrequency Microneedling with Stellar M22 IPL PhotoFacial to target brown and red spots, age spots, and discoloration of the skin while at the same time reducing fine lines and wrinkles, large pores, and other textural issues.
The PhotoRejuvenation destroys unsightly pigment and blood-filled capillaries and the RF microneedling regenerates elastin, collagen, and natural hyaluronic acid.
The end result is a younger-looking you.
SmoothGlo treatments take 30 minutes to 1 hour. Immediately after treatment, you can return to your daily activities.
Premedication and numbing cream is recommended for the most effective results with the least discomfort. This requires you to have a driver and relax the rest of the day.
You may experience some redness or swelling. This can last between a couple of hours to a few days. Additionally, you may see and feel minor scabbing. Don’t worry, it will naturally heal and shed off.
Many patients see visible improvements right away. For the best and longest-lasting results, complete a series of 3-4 SmoothGlo treatments spaced three to four weeks apart.
After treatment, stay out of direct sunlight for a few weeks and apply sunscreen regularly. Most importantly, follow our post-care instructions.
It’s two synergistic, sequential treatments, you do IPL first and then radio frequency microneedling. Recommended three to four sessions, and I’m doing the full four. Even after the first treatment, I saw immediate results. It’s pretty amazing, and I loved knowing that my skin would improve even more over the next few treatments.
It firms up the skin, and it helps stimulate collagen production, so I’m even going to see even more results as the months go by. My skin is so smooth, too. I could put foundation on right now and it would just glide right on. It’s also helped with the fine wrinkles on my face. I look more awake, which was a big thing for me too.
I was most surprised by how bright and youthful my skin looks.
Many patients see visible improvements right away. For the best and longest-lasting results, we recommend a package of 4 SmoothGlo treatments spaced 4 weeks apart.
SmoothGlo is minimally invasive and is very well tolerated. Most patients choose to utilize premedication along with numbing cream for a more relaxed pleasant experience.
Lumenis IPL delivers intense pulses of therapeutic light to destroy the unsightly pigment and blood-filled capillaries. The patented controlled pulsing technology minimizes your discomfort and maximizes your safety.
Morpheus8 RF Microneedling creates micro-wounds in your skin to promote a natural healing process that leads to the regeneration of elastin, collagen, and natural hyaluronic acid. The end result is a smooth, glowing complexion!
SmoothGlo treatments take about 1 hour. If you take advantage of premedication, you will need a driver and relax the rest of the day. You may experience some mild redness or swelling that can last from a couple of hours to a few days. Your skin may feel rough with minor fine scabbing. Don’t worry; it will naturally heal and shed off.
It is extremely important to follow post-care instructions for the best results. Stay out of direct sunlight, use sunscreen and proper skincare consistently, and stay hydrated.
SmoothGlo’s extraordinary results are setting a new bar for aesthetic outcomes and we are thrilled to be the first to offer this new protocol to our patients in the Lehigh Valley!
Targets the three biggest signs of aging skin all at once - tone, texture, and volume
Morpheus8 is the first and only aesthetic treatment of its kind. Its cutting-edge microneedling system delivers a finely tuned burst of RF energy to the depths of your skin to simultaneously kickstart collagen production, tighten the skin, brighten its tone and give it a healthy, revitalized, and youthful glow.
Youthful skin is maintained by specific building blocks. In order to postpone or correct the signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds, droopy upper or lower eyelids, sagging jowls, fine lines, wrinkles or crepe-like changes on any body area (especially décolletage, neck, arms, hands, and knees), and even stretch marks, it is essential that we consider how to regenerate those building blocks. Morpheus8 has been proven to reach deep beneath the epidermis where the skin’s foundation begins and is one of the most advanced skin tightening and toning methods available. This technology is perfect for patients interested in meaningful facial and body rejuvenation without surgery.
Morpheus8 is an advanced treatment that stimulates remodeling in the adipose tissue of the dermis by combining radiofrequency with the microneedling. On its own, microneedling provokes a healing response in which collagen proliferation increases. With Morpheus8, collagen increase is only part of its remarkable results. By using radiofrequency energy to reach tissue up to 7mm deep, this device also prompts tissue regeneration that includes thickening and tightening.
Morpheus8 is excellent for facial rejuvenation and body resurfacing because it can achieve multiple corrections simultaneously. Some of the concerns addressed with this radiofrequency technique include:
Morpheus8 is used by itself for the indications outlined above plus:
A local anesthetic cream is used to decrease the sensation of both the microneedles and radiofrequency energy. Once numb, the treatment begins. The tip of the applicator has several tiny needles through which the energy passes for a fraction of a second. This is then placed onto an adjacent area. The motion is somewhat like a stamping technique rather than moving the applicator across the skin.
Morpheus8 begins to stimulate change immediately after the first treatment. Depending on the extent of improvement a patient desires, a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced out at 3 to 6 week intervals may be considered.
Mild redness and swelling may occur for a day or two and the treated area may be slightly sensitive for a few days. Generally, patients are encouraged to refrain from wearing makeup for 1 to 2 days.
Microneedling with radiofrequency may feel slightly uncomfortable in certain areas. However, our use of topical numbing cream and pre-treatment medications make treatment much more pleasant than many patients expect.
Get the “SmoothGlo” effect by combining it with our PhotoRejuvention to create an incredible smooth, glowing & youthful result! Morpheus8 is more advanced than traditional microneedling and offers many more benefits, including:
I had tried at-home microneedling solutions in the past, and now I can completely see why so many people choose to go the professional route. The results are impressive!
Dr. Scaffidi is pleased to offer his patients this new, cutting-edge, skin rejuvenation option. In the past, you could only accomplish skin tightening by going “under the knife.” Morpheus8 is an energy-based treatment designed to provide deep skin rejuvenation with minimal pain and downtime, while offering long-term results.
Skin rejuvenation treatment isn’t just about correcting perceived beauty flaws. It’s also about turning back the hands of time and maintaining that improvement and preventing the progression of the hands of time! Morpheus8 RF Microneedling serves to help diminish signs of aging as they arise by tightening moderately loose skin around the face, neck, chest or other areas of the body (think knees, legs, abdomen, etc!) treating wrinkles, and rejuvenating collagen! Morpheus8 offers the following benefits and more:
Morpheus8 restores and rejuvenates the skin on a deep, cellular level using a combination of radiofrequency and microneedling.
Morpheus8 not only gets rid of stretch marks, but also remodels the skin restoring shapely, youthful contours.
Morpheus8 is capable of penetrating the treatment area to a depth of as much as 4 millimeters - deeper than all other microneedling devices - resulting in the best effects by improving the skin on a deep, cellular level.
Morpheus8, combined with ResurFx, gives the best results with both a deep dermal structural remodeling and a superficial epidermal skin rejuvenation
