Some of the laser treatments that we offer include the following:
Stretch marks are an unfortunate fact of life for many people. Anytime the skin has been stretched too far or too fast – such as during puberty, pregnancy, or weight change – these unsightly lines may appear. Just because stretch marks are normal doesn’t mean you have to live with them.
Regardless of what caused your stretch marks, laser stretch mark removal is an advanced treatment that can help you get the clearer, smoother skin you desire. It’s a non-surgical approach to improving stretch marks with well-tolerated treatments that require no downtime.
There are several different methods for removing warts with a laser. The technique Advanced Dermatology uses is pulsed dye laser (PDL), which cuts out the blood vessel that delivers nutrients to the wart, burning away the virus and simulating an immune-like response.
Our laser therapy uses a pulsed dye laser that emits focused heat, destroying the cherry angioma for good. Our treatments are generally very quick, although the time it takes per appointment and the number of appointments you need depend on the amount of cherry angiomas you wish to have removed.
Laser Treatments FAQs
Q: A few laser practitioners I have been to have given me conflicting advice about the length of time I should wait between treatments. Some say 4-5 weeks is the ideal period while others have indicated 7-8 weeks is much better if one is to target a greater proportion of hair in the right growth phase. What is your view on the ideal length of time that one should wait between treatments?
A: This can vary depending on the patient and the area of the body that is being treated. Generally speaking, the waiting period when treating areas of the face is between 4-6 weeks and between 8-10 weeks for areas of the body. To develop the best treatment plan for you, schedule an appointment with one of our board-certified dermatologists.
