Skin Imperfections: Stretch Marks, Veins, Tattoos & Scars

Your Treatment Options

Once you find your skin imperfection below, you can explore the services we provide for each category. We offer more than one approach for most concerns to give you choices that fit your condition and your lifestyle. Dr. Johnson and our team can help you determine what treatment might work best for you at a consultation.

Stretch Marks

Microneedling: Stretch marks and other types of scars can be effectively faded with microneedling, a minimally invasive option that doesn’t require any downtime. Using your skin’s own ability to heal itself, microneedling jump-starts collagen development for more even tone and faded stretch marks.

Laser Genesis: No downtime is required after these simple treatments that encourage collagen to grow and improve both the look and texture of skin. After a series of sessions, stretch marks even out to match the color, tone, and feel of surrounding skin.

Light & Bright Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment: This combination laser treatment addresses a variety of skin imperfections. It combines laser energy to treat the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production with IPL energy to improve the appearance of the surface of the skin, resulting in a reduced appearance of stretch marks.

Spider Veins

Laser Vein Treatments: Best for small spider veins on the face, laser vein treatments work non-invasively. We pass a laser over the skin, and the dark veins absorb the energy, which damages them. They eventually dissolve and fade away, leaving clear skin behind.

Light & Bright Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment: This laser treatment uses laser and light energy to reduce the appearance of small veins and skin redness on the face and body.


Laser Tattoo Removal: For patients from Spokane and beyond, we perform tattoo removal using the advanced PicoSure® and PicoWay® lasers. They work for tattoos of almost every color and use laser pulses to break down ink particles, which the body then eliminates. Several sessions spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart work best, but treatments take less than an hour and require little to no downtime.


Laser Genesis: In the same way that this laser treatment promotes collagen growth to treat other conditions, such as stretch marks, it’s also an effective option for scars, improving both color and texture. A series of non-invasive treatment sessions produces the best results.

Dermal Fillers: Most people think of injectable products such as Restylane® as options to plump up sagging skin and fill in wrinkles. Capitalizing on the same filling properties, they can also be used to plump up scars to even out their texture. Plus, many products come with the added bonus of collagen stimulation to help scars fade over time.

PicoSure® and PicoWay® Lasers: Without affecting the outermost layer of the skin, energy from these lasers stimulates collagen production to soften the appearance of acne scars.

Light & Bright Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment: Through a combination of non-ablative laser energy and IPL light energy, this laser skin resurfacing treatment helps improve the appearance of scars by treating redness on the skin’s surface and penetrating into the deeper layers of skin to heat the dermis and stimulate new collagen production to smooth and even out the appearance of scars.

UltraClear®: This resurfacing treatment uses cold fiber laser technology and customizable settings to treat multiple skin issues. Whether you are looking to treat acne scars or other concerns, UltraClear helps with collagen remodeling and improves the appearance of even deep scars.

Surgical scar revision: For more severe scars that are unresponsive to minimally invasive treatments such as lasers, it is sometimes best to surgically remove the scar tissue that is too damaged to heal smoothly. When this is the case, Dr. Johnson uses his many years of surgical experience to remove the scar tissue using very fine, careful incisions that heal better than the original.
