IPL is also touted as a way to boost collagen and elastin. Minimal down time, individuals can expect mild redness and slight darkening of brown spots just prior to their disappearance.

Stretchmarks are something that most women have and that no woman wants. In the past, there was little a dermatologist could offer a patient to alleviate this troublesome problem. Laser technology has revolutionized strechmark therapy. Using a combination of laser modalities such as the Fraxel Dual and the VBeam perfecta, it is quite possible and often achievable to improve the appearance of stretchmarks on the majority of patients to a very satisfactory degree.

Laser vein therapy is ideal for patients who had failed Sclerotherapy, are not candidates for Sclerotherapy, are needle-phobic, or patients who seek the convenience of laser vein therapy. Some of the advantages of laser vein therapy are that patients do not have to wear restrictive stockings and garments and they do not need to suspend any personal activity post-laser therapy.
