Laser hair removal, also known as Permanent Hair Reduction, is the most popular cosmetic laser treatment offered in the United States. In 2006, nearly 1.5 million procedures were performed. The treatment uses light to penetrate the hair follicle and permanently reducing the number of new hairs growing back, eliminating the need for waxing or shaving in the future.
Photofacial is a relatively new and increasingly popular technique that is one of the most lucrative cosmetic procedures delivered by medical spas and physicians. The photofacial treatment has the ability to reverse the aging process and correct skin damage in a non-invasive manner.

Laser Tattoo Removal NYC
In March 2002, Esquire Magazine reported that one in every eight Americans is tattooed and that 17% of those Americans will eventually want their tattoo removed.
The newest technology targets the ink directly, rather than breaking the top layer of skin as older technology did. This new method is far less painful and avoids wounds, scarring, and downtime.
Cellulite effects one third of all Americans which is over 100 million people. Using advanced tripolar radiofrequency, and or lasers, we can not only treat the cellulite but also help tighten the skin and remove unwanted fat.
Before and After RF Skin Tightening
W8MD offers advaced Tripolar Radiofrequency Skin Tightening to smooth and tone the skin. This procedure sends heat into the dermal layer of skin while the epidermis remains protected, resulting in a plumping of the skin to improve elasticity, wrinkles, and fine lines without downtime.

Wrinkle Reduction NYC
Wrinkles are part of the natural aging process. Laser Wrinkle Reduction provides soft tissue coagulation and non-ablative skin resurfacing with high efficacy and no downtime.
Chemical Peel Brooklyn NYC
Chemical Peels provide great non-invasive skin exfoliation and skin rejuvenation results that retexture, smooth and brighten the skin. Rough or dry patches can be resurfaced, uneven pigmentation spots can be reduced and the look of fine lines and wrinkles can be improved as cell turnover is increased and damaged skin cells are shed. Various concentrations and combinations of peel solutions also prove to be effective for the improvement of mild acne by stripping away plugs of keratin, oil, and dirt that often lead to outbreaks.
The latest advancement with Chemical Peels is the Laser Enhancement Peel: a strict solution that is unique to each client and designed to prepare the skin for a laser skin treatment, increasing the beneficial outcome of the laser treatment and extending a client’s rejuvenation results!
OxyGeneo is an innovative technology for skin exfoliation (removal of dead skin cells from the skin surface), for the purpose of improving skin oxygen levels, and infusion of essential nutrients to enrich the skin.

BIGGEST LOSER LOST OVER 150 LBS!
“I’ve been going to Dr. Tumpati at the King of Prussia location for about 9 months and have lost 150 pounds*. I was at a point where my weight was affecting my life and health, ignoring it was no longer an option. I wanted to lose weight safely, but effectively, yet most people said it was impossible. It was time to hire a professional. Dr. Tumpati and staff have been great explaining every step of the process and making sure I stay on track. The accountability and constant encouragement have been key parts of my success, as well as the knowledge that I was following a plan that would work and had actual medical science to back it” Dawn V.
NO MORE SLEEP APNEA!
“My doctor recommended that I go for a sleep study and I found I had obstructive sleep apnea. I got a CPAP machine and a few months later, I still wasn’t feeling good, so Dr. Tumpati recommended I try to lose weight. Under his supervision, I started my journey on June 16, 2015 and I went on the Medication “Contrave” and had no side effects. I came off CPAP and I have more energy and to date, with the help of Dr. Tumpati, 9 months later, I am down 75 pounds and have lost 10 inches in my waist and 13 inches in my hips. I feel so good, I’ve decided to work an extra two years (I’m almost 65). – Tom G.
TRULY LIFE CHANGER!
I have lost 103 pounds, reaching and actually surpassing by a couple of pounds my weight loss goal, and am maintaining.
My monthly visits with Dr. Tumpati, as well as the positive reinforcement of his staff, really help to keep me on track. My new eating habits have become my new normal, and I accept that adhering to these guidelines regarding my food needs to be a permanent part of my health routine, just like brushing my teeth. Living healthy and feeling good about the way I look are such great ways to start and go through my day that I can’t think of anything better. All my positives are enhanced and any negatives don’t seem as bad because at my center I am healthy, vibrant, energetic, and able to attract goodness. Every day is filled with gratitude that I have emerged from this process – dare I say it? Victorious! – D.M.
