That’s why our clinic is proud to offer laser skin treatments with the Nordlys® system.

Dr. Shaun Patel is a premier provider of laser treatments in Miami and Coral Gables. He first developed an interest in using laser therapy to improve facial aesthetics during his fellowship training at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Since then, he has performed hundreds of laser treatments for satisfied patients in southeastern Florida.

What Is the Nordlys® System?

The Nordlys platform is a state-of-the-art medical device that treats various skin and vein issues. Its versatility makes it a favorite among both patients and practitioners. The Nordlys system includes four specialized treatments designed to target specific concerns and deliver optimal results: SWT® IPL, Frax 1550™, Frax 1940™, and Nd 1064 nm.

SWT IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

SWT IPL, or Selective Waveband Technology Intense Pulsed Light, is designed for skin rejuvenation, vascular treatments, and hair removal. What makes it unique is that it can precisely target skin imperfections with a low risk of harming the surrounding tissues. As a result, you get smoother, clearer skin with fewer side effects compared to traditional IPL treatments. It is best suited for targeting red and brown pigmentation to resolve discoloration.

Fractional Non-Ablative Laser

Frax 1550

The Frax 1550 is a gentle yet powerful treatment for skin resurfacing. It penetrates deep into the skin to boost collagen production and support the natural healing process. This fractional laser handpiece allows Dr. Patel to perform nonablative treatments to improve skin texture, lines, and wrinkles. 

One of the best features of the Frax 1550 is its SoftCool™ technology, which delivers a cooling sensation during the procedure. This makes the treatment more comfortable and reduces any post-treatment discomfort.

Frax 1940

If you’re looking for a treatment that focuses on the surface of your skin, the Frax 1940 is a great option. Just like the Frax 1550, the Frax 1940 features SoftCool technology, which keeps you comfortable during the procedure. This nonablative laser treatment is perfect for addressing skin pigmentation issues because it treats more superficially than the Frax 1150.
