At the Center for Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery, Dr. Cheryl Burgess and her team of professionals provide a myriad of treatments that can help with the skin and body. Men and women who have experienced extreme weight loss or gain may struggle with the appearance of stretch marks. These marks on the skin can be extremely embarrassing, especially when they are noticeable when patients are wearing specific types of clothing such as bathing suits or crop tops. Stretch marks can occur anywhere on the body and are a result of stretched skin. While there are many creams and lotions on the market for stretch marks, none of them will work like skin resurfacing techniques available through a dermatologist such as Fraxel.
Fraxel is a type of laser treatment that can be used to resurface the skin. This is a more aggressive treatment that may require patients to take a few days off from work and regular activities because it can cause redness, swelling and peeling. When patients use Fraxel for stretch marks, it will greatly reduce the marks and allow patients to look and feel their best – improving their self-confidence.
Fraxel treatment is done in our practice and can be scheduled as just one treatment or a series of treatments for optimum results. Laser treatment is a great way to enhance the skin and not only address stretch marks but also other pigmentation issues, fine lines and wrinkles and for the treatment and improvement of acne. Fraxel is a versatile solution to many skin concerns and it should be considered by patients who want a fast, affordable option for addressing a variety of issues with their skin with just one service.
Dr. Cheryl Burgess is a board certified dermatologist who encourages men and women in the Washington, DC and Annapolis, MD areas to make an appointment at her practice to learn about treatments such as laser Fraxel. Knowing the services available and the way they can improve the skin is the best way to correct a wide range of skin concerns quickly and easily with a trained, experienced professional.
