If you experience stretch marks, then you are not alone! Many women and men experience stretch marks and want them removed. Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched faster than its ability to grow, leaving the skin thinner in those areas. In these overstretched areas, the production of collagen, which is the major protein that makes up the tissue in the skin, is disrupted. Stretch marks can be purple, reddish, or be indented and have a different texture than the surrounding skin. While stretch marks are challenging to address because elements of different layers of the skin are disrupted, which can be difficult to regenerate, Dr. Day has top of the line devices to reduce and remove stretch marks! There are also new combination treatments available. In addition to devices in the office, Dr. Day is also able to recommend topicals, which can help to work synergistically with devices to regenerate and restore the layers of the skin and reduce or even eliminate stretch marks all together. When you have an appointment with Dr. Day to discuss removing stretch marks, Dr. Day will create a treatment plan specifically for you!
ResurFX is a non-ablative fractional laser, meaning it can emit powerful light energy without visibly damaging the outer layer of skin. The fact that it is a fractional device means that it emits energy in a dotted pattern that leaves some skin undamaged, resulting in less discomfort and downtime. The laser is applied to create controlled thermal damage and micro-injuries. As these micro-injuries heal, new collagen and elastin are produced, resulting in resilient, glowing skin.

Fractional laser resurfacing utilizes a high-energy laser beam to soften fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and remove brown spots and other skin irregularities.
Microneedling treatment uses tiny needles to penetrate specific areas of the skin to create microscopic injuries. This stimulates the skin's natural ability to produce collagen and elastin and also creates channels for serums and solutions to penetrate more deeply, making the skin look and feel healthier.
