Spots, Scars, and Stretch Marks: Lasers Can Treat Them All

Life can take a toll on your skin. Sun exposure and aging causes dark spots to appear. Stretched skin through rapid weight or muscle gain exposes stretch marks. Acne, accidents, and surgery create mild to moderate scarring that mars an otherwise smooth complexion.

Here at Signature Skin Care, we understand how important it is to your mental and physical well-being to achieve smooth, even skin. State-of-the-art laser technology has revolutionized the approach to a wide variety of skin concerns, including pigmentation issues, brown spots, freckles, scars, and stretch marks. We want residents of the Edmond, Oklahoma, area to feel their absolute best about their skin’s appearance and health. Read on to learn how laser treatments can make that happen.

Laser skin resurfacing

If you have aging skin, noticeable effects of time in the sun, or other skin imperfections, Dr. Gina Ressler and the expert team here at Signature Skin Care may recommend laser resurfacing using Fraxel®, Pixel®, or CO2 technology. The resurfacing rejuvenates your skin and evens out irregular pigmentation issues.

All the lasers used at Signature Skin Care are ablative, meaning they remove very fine layers of your outer skin. This reveals new, fresh skin and encourages healing to smooth out your complexion. 

Dr. Ressler determines the best type of laser treatment and the intensity of the light wavelength to properly rejuvenate your skin type, achieve your goals, and heal the skin imperfections you desire to correct.

Which laser treatment is best?

Fraxel fractional laser is best for fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, and scarring. CO2 ablative lasers treat deep wrinkles and scars effectively. Pixel technology penetrates your skin at various depths to treat sun damage, age spots, wrinkles, and even blemishes.

The laser we recommend really depends on your skin and your cosmetic goals. With Fraxel fractionated technology, the laser distributes energy so that some tiny areas of your skin are left untreated. This helps promote healing but may require multiple treatments and is best for mild to moderate skin concerns.

The Pixel laser improves your skin with minimal downtime and discomfort. Sun damage, acne scars, fine lines, and areas of rough texture or discoloration respond well to Pixel technology. Pixel is another fractionated laser approach that leaves islands of untreated skin alongside the microscopic wounds that induce healing and collagen regeneration to smooth out the skin’s surface. It can address a variety of depths to revitalize your skin’s appearance.

Fully ablative, CO2 laser treatments are the most extensive way to address scarring, dark spots, and stretch marks. It’s the most intense, however, and requires the longest healing, but it also yields the most dramatic results. CO2 treatments go deeper so you get better results for deeper wrinkles, scars, and even lines and crepey-ness around the eyes.

If you desire a more youthful, beautiful complexion, consult with Dr. Ressler and the experts at Signature Skin Care. Reverse the signs of aging, stress, and the environment so you look younger and healthier.
