  • Rosacea, Blood Vessels and Birth Marks Laser Treatment

    The worldwide “gold standard” for treatment of facial redness and blood vessels. The VBeam is less painful than many other vascular lasers due to Candela’s exclusive technology known as DCD, Dynamic Cooling Device. DCD sprays a cooling cryogen liquid onto the skin prior to each laser pulse, providing immediate comfort and protection of the outer skin. The treatments are well tolerated and additional anesthesia is not necessary.

  • Laser Hair Removal

    Imagine…having smooth, hair-free skin without shaving, plucking, waxing or bleaching. Compared to other methods of hair removal, such as waxing, plucking, cream depilatories, and electrolysis, lasers provide much more efficient removal of hair with longer lasting results. We chose the GentleLase from many other laser and pulsed light systems because we felt it provided the absolute safest, least painful, and most effective results available.


  • Skincare Products

    Patients of all ages frequently ask what can be done to improve the overall quality and look of their face and skin. The products that we offer have been carefully selected for the benefits and value they provide.

  • A Great Dermatologist With Years Of Experience

  • Dr. Tavelli knows exactly what to do and then he follows me closely until the problem is GONE. I really appreciate how he treats me and advises me. Although I don’t see him often when I do I am reminded of how fortunate I am to have such a caring and capable Dermotlogist right here in town. Thank you Dr Tavelli!
