Spot, Vein and Scar Reduction

Spot treatment at Dignity Medical Aesthetics

As we age – unsightly spots, redness, veins, and scars distract from young looking skin. We hope the following information provides insight into the solutions we offer. Please click on the links following each section for more detailed information –

SUN SPOTS – Also known as age spots, liver spots, melasma, brown spots and solar lentigines. The appearance of this pigmentation increases with age and can be dramatically improved with Cynosure’s Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial and 3D Resurfacing treatments. Depending on the area to be treated, most patients only need one to three treatments to successfully eliminate brown discolorations. Obagi Medical skin care can also correct and enhance the color and texture of the skin. Use the following links to further explore these options:

REDNESS – Examples of redness include rosacea, flushing, capillaries, cherry angiomas and port wine stains. These conditions are treatable with Cynosure’s Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial. The device can break up pigment and decrease both visible red vessels and overall flushing reds by sending beams of light into the depth of skin at which the redness lives. Depending on the cause, most patients require two to four treatments to treat redness, with an additional maintenance treatment every six to twelve months. We also carry products that help decrease inflammatory cells in the skin and therefore help soften redness and provide an overall glow. Click on the following links to learn more:

VEINS – Small blue veins or red spider veins on the legs are most effectively treated with sclerotherapy treatments. An injectable prescription product called Asclera causes the visible vessels to clot and be replaced by fresh new tissue. On average, 86% of patients are satisfied or very satisfied with their results. Patients typically need two to four treatments for long-lasting results. Asclera is not used to treat vessels of the face, however Cynosure’s IPL Photofacial can effectively decrease facial reds. Learn more about your options by exploring the following links:

SCARS – Whether recently healed or an old familiar blemish, laser and/or microneedling scar treatments create a natural healing process that replaces the disorganized tissue characteristic of scars with smoother, even skin. This process is completely natural because the device stimulates your body’s own wound healing response. Depending on the size and severity of the scar, most patients require four to six treatments spaced one month apart to soften the appearance of the area. Use the links below for more information:

STRETCH MARKS – Cynosure’s Fractional Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing Laser minimizes the appearance of stretch marks with minimal discomfort and down time. A Medical depth MicroPen Microneedling device can also create the same outcome. The devices stimulate collagen in the area, and therefore improve the unsightly skin color and texture associated with stretch marks. Stretch marks are similar to scars in that they can be difficult to treat and require more treatments than a superficial line or wrinkle. For further information, click on the following links:
