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.
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.
SmartSkin CO2™: These treatments resurface the skin to reveal the smoother, unblemished layers below. In a series of sessions, we can target stretch marks on any area of the body with customized laser pulses delivered to a precise skin depth. The average treatment takes only 20 minutes.
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.
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.
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 JUVÉDERM®, RADIESSE®, Restylane®, and JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC 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.
SmartSkin CO2: These laser treatments not only resurface the top layers of rough scars caused by acne or injury, but they also promote healing from within by spurring collagen growth. SmartSkin treatments are great for targeting specific spots with a precise laser strength for best results.
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.
PicoSkin: The PicoSkin laser is the first of its kind for reducing scarring. Rather than relying solely on heat to improve skin, PicoSkin delivers rapid bursts of energy to disrupt the pigment particles in acne scars and lighten them significantly.
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.Back to Top
