Sun exposure over the years can lead to freckles and larger brown spots patches on the skin that give the skin a more aged and damaged appearance. Removal or lightening of these dark splotches can give the skin a brighter more youthful appearance. We use a variety of ways to address brown spots on the skin from skin care and sun protection to chemical peels to a number of different laser treatments.
Laser Acne Treatments
Acne can be a very challenging issue—often requiring interventions above and beyond prescription medications. Topical skin care products and chemical peels can help reduce clogged pores and exfoliate the surface of the skin. Lasers and light treatments can help acne by targeting the overactive oil glands that are the root problem of acne.

Ablative Skin Resurfacing
Ablative skin resurfacing — CO2 and Erbium lasers
This procedure was the gold standard for skin resurfacing in the 1990’s and early 2000’s. It is still used to today for more severe wrinkles, sun damage and scars. Laser resurfacing with the Ultrapulse CO2 laser allows the operator precise and predictable removal of fine layers of sun-damaged skin.
Fractional lasers deliver laser energy deep into the skin in a pattern of tiny, microscopic impacts. Fraxel Re:pair is the most aggressive form, using ablative CO2 laser energy to provide dramatic results for even the most severely damaged skin. Ablative means the upper layer and deeper layers of skin are vaporized, temporarily leaving a small open wound. It is like many small laser holes are place into the skin. Dr. Rostan was the first doctor in the Southeast to offer this treatment and her patients have had amazing results.
