At The Kimmel Institute we use Palomar Medical Technologies cosmetic laser treatments and intense pulsed light (IPL) systems to dramatically improve the appearance of the skin. Usually several treatment sessions are advised over a period of a few months.
Photo rejuvenation uses an optimized light device to deliver energy into the skin, targeting vascular and pigmented lesions, which slowly disappear as the body’s natural healing process progresses. Indication for this includes sunspots, age spots, rosacea, spider veins, and capillaries.
Laser Scar Treatment
Laser scar treatment uses “fractional” pulses of laser light to break down scar tissue and help generate healthy new tissue, lighter in color and more even in texture. The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. It is the more comfortable alternative to surgery for acne scars, with remarkable results on any skin type. Typical side effects include a temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site, which should last only a few days.
Stretch Mark Treatment
Pulses of fractional laser light are used to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production at the site and helping to improve stretch mark color. The new collagen can leave the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduce the appearance of the stretch mark on the skin. This treatment is ideal for all stretch marks on any skin type. It typically takes 30 minutes per session, with no downtime, yet it can deliver superior, long-lasting results.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
Fractional skin resurfacing with Palomar uses laser energy microbeams to target areas of affected tissue that extend through the epidermis into the dermis. The body’s natural healing process creates new, healthy tissue to replace the areas of affected tissue, resulting in healthier, younger-looking skin. Fractional skin resurfacing can improve the appearance of skin tone and texture, wrinkles, stretch marks, surgical and acne scars.
Permanent Hair Reduction
Permanent hair reduction is available for all skin types, including very light and dark skin. Light is used to target and destroy hair follicles responsible for hair growth without harming surrounding tissue, so there is minimal risk. Permanent hair reduction treatments can only affect hair in active phases of growth so several treatments are needed to effectively treat all the unwanted hair. Treatment sessions take jut a few minutes and are practically pain-free. Indicated for face, axilla, arms, legs, back, chest, and bikini areas. Most patients experience a mild, sunburn-like sensation, possibly accompanied by some minor swelling, immediately following the treatment, usually lasting 2 to 24 hours. Patient can resume regular daily activites immediately following treatment.
COLD LASER THERAPY FOR SMOKING CESSATION
Using a cold laser on numerous acupuncture sites on the face and body, we help patients to be tobacco-free. This one hour session includes teaching materials and a CD for home support. Since 2005, our results are comparable to prescription drug regimes, but with no side effects.

I can’t say enough about this doc. He goes above and beyond the scope of the usual doc. Will do anything he has to do to accomplish the best outcome. I can’t say enough about him and his staff
Having developed varicose veins at a young age and watching a family member go through the procedures multiple times with more than one doctor and little success, my experience with Dr. Kimmel and his staff was outstanding. The large bulging veins (that kept me out of shorts in the hot Florida sun) and the achiness/itching in my legs is gone. I had one session the resolve my spider veins as well which is proving to be equally successful. I would highly recommend Dr. Kimmel for anyone who needs to have this procedure done. And Melissa, Julie, Clara and other staff were excellent, professional, honest and great at what they do.
I went to Dr Kimmel for varicose veins. I had been to other doctors in the past and he is by far the most thorough and knowledgeable doctor I have been to. He treats the underlying issues first which many doctors do not. His staff is also fantastic. Professional, knowledgeable and kind. If you need a vein doctor, do not go to anyone but him. Too many people advertise themselves as “vein treatment centers” and don’t know what they are doing. Dr Kimmel is truly a doctor who specializes in vascular issues and was great. Highly recommend
From the first visit to the last I was very satisfied with the doctor and his wonderful assistant, nurse and staff. The words to use, caring, professional and answered all my questions clearly. I would definitely recommend Dr, Kimmel to my family and friends. The doctor explained what he would do for the veins on my legs and the procedure. It has only been 3 weeks and my legs have improved so much & will continue to do so.Very positive experience.
I have just recently had the laser vein procedure on both of my legs done for extremely heavy various veins at the Kimmel Institute and cannot tell you how happy I am with the results. Dr. Kimmel and all of his staff were wonderful, professional and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I found Dr. Kimmel on the internet and started researching him and came up with only positive findings. I was still a little nervous about finding a doctor on the internet but when I called the office and came in for the initial screening, I knew I was in the right place. Check him out for yourself and I know you will be a happy as I am. Thank you, Dr. Kimmel and staff!
Dr. Kimmel and his Staff are an unbeatable combination of knowledge, expertise and Tender Loving Care. I enjoyed a truly positive experience from beginning to end…could not be happier with the results. Go… Kimmel Institute!
Richard Kimmel is the BEST. I had an extremely wonderful experience. Julie & Melissa really made it brainless for me. I highly recommend. Anyone that does not use him in my opinion is a fool. He is really that great. You won’t be disappointed. If there were more “stars” I would give it to Dr. Kimmel and his wonderful staff.
I called the office and new I found the right place. My first visit and consultation confirmed that. It was such a pleasure to be treated like I was their PRIORITY, not just another patient passing through. They answered all my questions and I felt comfortable asking them. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable; truly an experience like this is hard to find these days. Oh, and by the way…my legs look and feel GREAT!!! Highly recommend!!!
I underwent an ambulatory microphlebectomy,a chemical ablation and sclerotherapy with Dr Kimmel. He is a professional efficient surgeon. The whole staff especially Melissa and Clara are wonderful as well. They all create a calming atmosphere while the procedures are being performed. I have never been to an office where everyone shows they care about you. This is that type of place that Dr Kimmel has.
