For Scars & Stretch Marks
Patients seeking to minimize the look of scars (especially from acne) and/or stretch marks can see an improvement in texture and pigmentation of the skin of the hands, face, and other areas. Several treatments are recommended for maximum results, but each treatment has an effect and benefit that is cumulative.
There are so many options available that any healthy adult with realistic expectations can be a candidate for scar resurfacing. Patients should discuss their expectations during the initial consultation and make sure moving forward is the right choice before taking the next step.
Laser treatments can be used to address shallow scars and skin redness, all of which work to stimulate the body to produce more collagen and new skin cells, smoothing the skin and improving tone and texture. Collagen is the structural protein responsible for keeping the skin smooth, supple and firm, and many treatments encourage the body to produce more of this protein, leading to scar improvement. Skin treatments can also address redness found in new scars, leading to a better overall appearance.
Stretch marks don’t have to rule your life forever, thanks to the great results of skin treatments we offer. Laser treatments have come a long way, and today there are many minimally invasive procedures available that can improve the appearance of stretch marks and rejuvenate the skin for better aesthetics.
Multiple sessions are recommended to achieve a significant improvement in the appearance of the stretch marks. Sun avoidance is necessary after the treatment, in order to avoid pigment changes in the area. Recovery is quick after treatment, with no downtime.
