Scars and Stretchmarks
Scars, stretchmarks and birthmarks can appear in a variety of places on the body
Palm Clinic successfully uses the following treatments for these problem areas:
- Scars and Stretchmarks - are often very red due to increased vascularity. Photoderm Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or Elos Aurora treatment removes the redness of the marks and visibly improves appearance. In some cases stretch marks can be significantly reduced by a fractionated resurfacing laser called Fraxel Dual.
- Keloid Scars - can also be treated with corticosteroid or 5-flurouracil injections to shrink them down. This is best performed in the first few months
- Birthmarks are generally pigmented (brown) or vascular (red). Both are treated with the Photoderm Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Elos Aurora.
