Venice Avenue Dermatology is the only dermatologist office Venice, Florida with this innovative treatment technology
— Jeffrey R. Hunek, MD
The Nordlys platform was named the 2022 Aesthetic Awards Device of the Year, and was featured on the Today Show on NBC. Venice Avenue Dermatology is the first clinic in Venice to incorporate this system into its state-of-the-art practice.
The Nordlys Light & Bright is a unique Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy that incorporates two types of light therapy in a single treatment for comprehensive skin rejuvenation. It can improve the tone and texture of skin quickly and effectively with minimal downtime.
The platform allows aesthetic specialists to simultaneously treat:
-Redness and vascular lesions
-Age spots, unwanted freckles, and other dark spots
-Overall tone and appearance of skin
During a Nordlys Light & Bright treatment, the device delivers light energy into the deeper layers of the skin. The skin cells absorb this light and transform it into heat energy, creating targeted tissue damage that destroys built-up melanin and other unwanted pigments. IPL photorejuvenation is an excellent option to renew skin and improve its overall elasticity.
“I am so excited to be the first in the Venice area to bring the Nordlys system to our patients. I have to say the Nordlys is a major step forward in IPL technology,” said Jeffrey R. Hunek, MD, Dermatologist and founder of Venice Avenue Dermatology. “ As soon as this device became available, I knew I had to have it for Venice Avenue Dermatology” he added.
The Nordlys system is powerful but more comfortable than other IPL treatment options. The device is quiet in operation, features multiple settings, and even includes a patient database to track treatments.
“I know our patients will enjoy the proven results and greater comfort offered by the Nordlys system.” Jeffrey R. Hunek said.
