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

Getting older can take its toll on your skin. Fortunately, you can turn back the clock with laser treatments. Advanced laser products can help you erase skin imperfections such as scars, stretch marks, and age spots so that you can look your best — and not to mention, years younger.

Facial plastic surgeon Norman J. Pastorek MD, PC, FACS and skin rejuvenation specialist Janice Pastorek, BSN, RN offer the most advanced laser skin treatments to improve your skin’s appearance. Want to get rid of unsightly marks on your skin? Here’s how lasers can help.

Eliminate age spots

Whether you have dark brown spots, splotches, or another type of skin discoloration, there are several laser options to help you eliminate or fade them. Once your age spots and other skin imperfections are out of the way, you’ll be left with smoother, glowing skin. 

One such laser is the Novalis Clareon IPL (intense pulsed light). This advanced laser treatment zaps your brown spots with krypton light, which is more comfortable and effective than other IPL lasers. 

Fade scars

While you may not be able to make the memory of how you got your scar fade away, you can fade the scar itself with a simple in-office laser treatment. Whether you have a depressed scar or a raised scar, our advanced lasers can address your specific scar elimination needs. 

For example, the Clear and Brilliant laser treatment can boost collagen production so that your skin fills in a depressed scar. And the Phoenix or Whisper lasers can smooth out raised scars. Bonus: These procedures will also improve your overall skin appearance. 

Minimize stretch marks

Stretch marks are usually a sign of good things. They might be all that’s left after you lost a lot of weight. Or, you may have gotten them when you were pregnant. Still, you’re probably anxious for them to go away. 

If topical creams are not working for you, a laser treatment can help you keep your good memories of why you have stretch marks, but lose the physically unattractive marks themselves. Several IPL laser treatments can help boost collagen, which can reduce the appearance of stretch marks over time. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your skin goals. 

Do you have skin imperfections that bother you? Then it’s time to come see us. Call Dr. Pastorek’s office or request an appointment online.
