In his many years as a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Roger J. Oldham has witnessed the adverse effects of a lifetime of sun exposure in his patients. A specialist in healthy skin, Dr. Oldham provides an in-office surgery center for the removal of skin lesions (moles and cancerous growths) and laser treatment of visible capillaries that create pink or red pigmentation in the surface of the skin. Preventative measures can be the best treatment for patients who are concerned about the health of their youthful-looking skin. Dr. Oldham’s in-office treatment center features a procedure which can remove age spots and broken capillaries utilizing a sophisticated high tech laser, restoring your skin to its youthful tone and glow.
Recent advances in laser treatments have satisfactory results for so many of Dr. Oldham’s patients. Laser treatment can be used to remove unwanted hair, pigmented areas of skin known as age spots, and unsightly capillaries which appear close to the skin’s surface. Visible facial capillaries can be caused by a variety of factors including rosacea, exposure to the sun, hormones, and the natural process of aging. Laser removal of facial capillaries is a relatively painless procedure which most patients describe as feeling like the snap of a rubber band. Laser age spot and facial capillary removal can usually be successfully treated in a single session, but occasionally a repeat "touch-up" may be necessary to remove them completely.
