Dr. Richard Tepper, at his Springfield, NJ location, can help you address a variety of concerns. Some of the more common concerns are listed below. If you don’t immediately see your specific concern, feel free to contact us at the link below.

Acne Scars

Are you bothered by acne scars from when you were a teenager. Fraxel is a fractionated laser that can improve and blend damaged skin that scarred as a result of acne. 


Do you feel youthful and fit, but are bothered by the dimpled appearance of your thighs or lower buttock region? Profound can help. Indicated for both skin tightening and cellulite, a single treatment lasting just a few hours can improve or possibly eliminate those problem areas.

Dark Spots

Some people have unwanted areas of blotchiness, benign lesions or other sun-related dark spots. The TriVantage laser may be for you. Only indicated for benign lesions, this laser targets small brown spots and destroys the pigment that makes the lesions appear dark.

Excessive Sweating (hyperhidrosis)

This condition can be terribly troubling for those affected, whether in the axillary (arm pit) region or the palms. Botox, when injected into the troubled areas, can reduce or eliminate this effect. Insurance coverage varies by plan, and may cover a portion of the cost, such as the injection but not the product itself.

Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Bothered by wrinkles and other fine lines on the face? While surgery is very effective for removing large areas lax skin and reshaping facial regions, Lasers & Energy Based Devices are quite effective at treating fine lines and wrinkles. There are several options and Dr. Tepper will gladly discuss the benefits and indications based on your particular wishes.


Do you have red blotchy areas? Visible red scars? Small spider veins. Dr. Tepper can help eliminate these unwanted red areas. The Candela Perfecta laser is safe and effective, and very well tolerated. The treatments only take a few minutes, and there’s essentially no down time. Most patients undergo between four and eight treatment sessions, but each patient can help determine the desired extent of change.

Sagging Skin

Depending on the amount of sagging skin and an individual’s goals, Dr. Richard Tepper offers some options to meet a variety of needs. Surgery remains the gold standard, and dramatic corrections can be achieved. For individuals who desire correction of some loose skin in the face and neck regions, but for whom surgery is not an option, Profound Radiofrequency microneedling may be for you. Indicated for skin tightening and cellulite treatment, this procedure relies on energy delivered through tiny probes to tighten skin and promote collagen formation. After instilling a local anesthetic, treatments can be performed on the face, neck and even other parts of the body. Recovery is fairly quick and easy.


Do you have scars from an injury or surgery. Do you dislike them? Did you know that scars can cause pain, itching, stinging and other problems in some people? Are you one of those people? While scars are a permanent and necessary part of healing, there ways to lessen the visibility and improve blending. And in the case of undesirable symptoms, there are ways to lessen or eliminate problems such as pain, stinging or hypersensitivity. Dr. Richard Tepper has helped many patients with problematic scars, using the modalities below. Insurance may cover a portion of the treatment for problematic scars.

Stretch Marks

If you suffer from stretch marks, there may be a treatment that can help you. Lasers and Energy Devices can improve the color mismatch, stimulate new collagen formation and cause tissue tightening, all of which can provide better blending of of those unwanted skin markings.

Submental Fat (fat under the chin)

f you suffer from fullness beneath the chin and jaw, TruSculpt can provide and safe and effective way of non-invasive fat reduction. It only takes about 15 minutes per treatment, and the recovery is straight forward. For more extensive corrections, liposuction can be performed, usually in the office, under local anesthesia, and is very well tolerated with minimal downtime.

Sun Damage

Fraxel Dual can rejuvenate your skin and also treat sun damaged changes at the same time. Most patients undergo 3 or 4 treatments, but the intensity of the laser energy can influence these estimates. Fraxel has become a very popular non-surgical way to treat sun damaged skin.

Unwanted Fat

Do you have excess fat in your abdomen, hips, inner thighs and maybe other locations? We have a non-surgical solution for you. TruSculpt by Cutera offers an easy and convenient way to reduce that unwanted fat so you can look and feel better about yourself. Most patients undergo two sessions 4-6 weeks apart, with each session usually lasting between 20 and 30 minutes. The technology uses heat to slowly “melt away” unwanted fat. There are no injections, no sutures and no incisions. The technology targets fatty tissue. The skin is then left to adjust to less volume. Those with healthy, toned skin, tend to see the greatest amount of passive skin correction. Those with a significant amount of loose skin may want to consider an alternative treatment.

Unwanted Hair

If you suffer from unwanted hair, or simply want to eliminate hair to avoid shaving, then the Candela Gentle Max is for you. Want a trimmed bikini line, bare underarms or facial regions, this laser can help you achieve that. There are some situations where this works better than others, and Dr. Tepper can discuss these with you. Since hair growth is slow, patients usually require four sessions, spaced a month apart, for the best results.
