Stretch Mark Treatments in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky

Broadband Light Laser (BBL)

Another treatment that can be done in the office is our Broadband Light Laser (BBL). The BBL utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. Targets red spots, age spots, freckles, sun spots, small facial veins and several other types of blemishes. Heat is absorbed into the target areas and will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen.

BBL treatment is customized to the patient. Normally, you would need between 2-5 treatments, spaced 2-4 weeks apart. This is a non-invasive, safe, gentle procedure with no downtime. Makeup may be applied directly after treatment and return to normal activities right away. This may cause some redness immediately following the treatment that will resolve within a few hours. Sun block when you go outdoors is very important.

Affirm Laser

Affirm Laser can be used to treat Facial Lines and other skin complications.  This system makes the skin appear more supple, youthful, and full, while helping to treat fine lines, pore size, skin tone, and texture. It is designed to diminish the effects of time and sun damage on the skin, surgical or acne scars and stretch marks. Since this laser does not go any deeper into the skin than necessary, the treatments deliver only minimal discomfort that is tolerable without the use of topical numbing creams. Redness that resembles a sunburn, swelling or puffiness is usually gone within hours but lasting more than a few days.

The Affirm treatments require a series of 3-5 to expose all of the skin to the micro thermal laser zones. Sessions last 30 minutes and are spaced 3 weeks apart.

ProFractional™

ProFractional™ is one of our lasers with energy that create thousands of microscopic channels in the area treated. It is used for Skin Tightening and other procedures.

An in-office custom designed laser treatment performed using numbing cream to the area, which makes treatments comfortable. Popular areas for treatment are the face, neck, chest, and hands. Treatments are done in a series of 1-4, space with 3-6 weeks apart. Complete healing comes anywhere between 1-4 days depending on how deep the treatment went. Most patients return to normal activities and can apply makeup within 5-7 days. Treated skin will be more sensitive to the sun making sunblock a necessity.
