The Vein and Skin Care Center was established by Fred Laufer, MD in 1985, and was the first facility of its kind in eastern Pennsylvania. Dr. Laufer continues to be the area's leading physician in the non-surgical
treatment of veins. In addition, as a Laser and Aesthetic Medicine Center, Dr. Laufer is one of the area's most experienced physicians in the cosmetic uses of lasers and other aesthetic techniques. He is also the area's first physician to offer THERMAGE.

Many new laser centers, spas and "aesthetic" facilities seem to be opening everywhere, some offering coupons or discounted fees for their services. Remember...YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR! The Vein and Skin Care Center was one of the first true Medical Aesthetic Centers in the area, and is Dr. Laufer's only practice site. He is, therefore, available for personal, one-on-one care for all his patients. Dr. Laufer meets with all patients during an initial, free consultation. In addition, he performs all procedures himself.

Be aware that in Pennsylvania, there is no certification or training required for any person that performs laser procedures. There is also no requirement for physician supervision or oversight during these procedures. In some cases, a minimally trained person may be providing you with treatment, with little or no physician supervision. Make the correct choice when it comes to your health and safety.

Dr. Laufer takes pride in having provided eastern Pennsylvania and western New Jersey with expert care for 28 years. The Vein and Skin Care Center continually updates its procedures and equipment, so that patients are assured of the safest and most effective state-of-the-art techniques available.

As a recognized leader in the field of Aesthetic and Cosmetic Laser Therapy, his office has been a training center for other physicians wishing to learn this technology. In addition, a DVD was filmed at Dr. Laufer's office, that is used to train physicians around the world in the use of the Gemini Laser. Dr. Laufer has also run training workshops for physicians in many major cities in the USA, including New York City, Philadelphia, Washington DC, San Diego, Nashville, Buffalo, Baltimore and many more.

Dr. Laufer is the first and only physician to offer THERMAGE-CPT in the Lehigh Valley area. This exciting new technique for skin tightening, body shaping, fat reduction and cellulite improvement is one of the fastest growing aesthetic procedures in the country, and has been seen on Oprah, Good Morning America, and other shows.

Dr. Laufer was the first physician to introduce modern sclerotherapy to the Lehigh Valley area, and has treated thousands of patients over the years. He is among a handful of physicians in the country who will treat very large, bulging varicose veins without any surgery at all. ("Minimally invasive surgery" is still surgery.) Instead, he uses compression sclerotherapy, a simple office procedure.

Dr. Laufer performs other procedures to enhance the appearance and reduce signs of aging. These include Laser Hair Removal, Max-3 Laser Rejuvenation, Enhanced Laser Skin Rejuvenation, deeper Erbium Laser Peels, Laser Acne Treatment, Vibraderm microdermabrasion, BOTOX®, Dysport, Radiesse, Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, chemical peels, Photo-Dynamic Therapy (PDT) and more.

Dr. Laufer has spoken at a number of conferences about these techniques. He has been a consultant on a medical web site that answers questions from physicians concerning laser procedures. In addition, physicians have traveled to The Vein and Skin Care Center to learn about these procedures from
Dr. Laufer.

In order to make an informed decision about whether these techniques are appropriate for you, a FREE, private consultation is offered by Dr. Laufer and The Vein and Skin Care Center. Please call our office for more information or an appointment.
