What are the most common Skin Issues


   Millions of women have stretch marks, which occur normally as a result of puberty, pregnancy, hormonal changes and weight gain. This fact does little to alleviate the embarrassment that most women feel at the appearance of these unsightly striations on their skin.


   Acne scars and surgical scars may be a cause of a person's emotional and or physical pain and affect their quality of life. In severe cases, scars can even limit a person's mobility. Surgical scar removal procedures are painful and invasive and have a risk for complications.


   A 2008 survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reveals that people in their 50s and 60s ranked youthful-looking skin as the number-one feature they find attractive in others. It also indicated that respondents in their 20s, 40s, 50s and 60s were very concerned about the appearance of their faces.

  How the Fractional LaserTreatmentWorks  

   Whether the issue is scars, stretch marks, or wrinkles, the concept remains the same. To understand what’s happening within the skin to make smoother, tighter skin happen is fascinating. You see, the reason why we develop these wrinkles, or pits or scars is because the rate at which our bodies’ recover, or repair damages has slowed down or over/under produced scar tissue. More specifically, the elasticity-or the skin’s tissue fibers that give it supple flexibility- has been broken down or worn out from sun damage and repetitive muscle use over time. Or in the case of acne scars- the healing

response has been interrupted and layers of malformed scar tissue has developed. However, our body or face has not been able to repair it fast enough before we wore it out again. Here’s how the fractional laser can help. It’s called a FRACTIONAL LASER because under every “zap” from the laser only a fraction of the skin is being affected. (which makes it safer and permits “no down-time”) The laser sends tiny columns of Intense Pulsed Light, IPL, through selected pores and dissolves weakened strands of elasticity and stimulates the collagen to send a healing response. It then fills in that dissolved area with protective, stronger skin tissue. The appearance is actual new, smoother skin!


Are your visible veins

letting on that you're

getting on in years?


   Even if your spider veins were brought on by pregnancy rather than age, those red or purple little veins can have a big effect on your confidence. Sclerotherapy is considered the gold standard in the treatment of spider veins, and can be used almost anywhere spider veins appear on the body, including the legs, arms, hands, face, and neck.


Sclerotherapy is considered extremely safe, and can be performed in our office with no anesthesia or recovery time required. Sclerotherapy works by injecting a small amount of a special chemical into the problem vein, closing the vein and redirecting circulation to other, healthy veins deeper within the skin. The closed vein disappears over time, so that squiggly purple mark fades from your skin and memory, permanently. There's no need to cover up your skin this summer
