Precision Laser Skin Treatments with JOULE™

Laser Skin Treatments at Penn Highlands Healthcare

You cover up your skin with makeup and hide your imperfections by turning a certain direction in photos or wearing strategic pieces of clothing. You’re embarrassed to show the world the real you, and you often wonder if people are looking at you—or your skin.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Whether you want to erase years of sun damage, remove stretch marks or permanently rid yourself of underarm hair, J. Ryan Rice, MD, FACS, at Penn Highlands Plastic, Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery in DuBois can help you get the results you want in minimal downtime with the JOULE aesthetic laser treatment.


JOULE is a laser system that delivers the optimal combination of laser wavelengths to perform a number of aesthetic treatments, including:

JOULE delivers phenomenal results with minimal downtime. It uses the latest laser technology to provide customized, targeted treatments that will leave you looking and feeling your best. The gentle and precise laser can treat even the most delicate problem areas without harming surrounding tissue.

Because Dr. Rice programs and tailors the JOULE laser system to each patient’s unique skin type, most people are candidates for treatment with JOULE. And you’ll see results quickly. Depending on the procedure type, you can expect to see results in as little as one treatment session.

Dr. Rice uses local anesthesia to alleviate patient discomfort during laser procedures. After treatment, patients can return home to recover. Best of all, the side effects are minor. Patients may experience some soreness in the area, but most are able to return to their normal routine immediately as long as they avoid direct sunlight.

You don’t need surgery to fix those imperfections. Contact Penn Highlands Plastic Reconstructive and Cosmetic Surgery to find out if you are a good candidate for laser skin treatment with JOULE.
