We've come to know Mercy Women's Care at Mercy St. Charles Hospital for providing quality health and diagnostic services - including mammograms, stereotactic breast biopsies, three dimensional ultrasounds, DEXA scans for osteoporosis detection and one stop workups.
Now, Mercy Women's Care offers patients a new "PLUS": special services to treat a variety of skin conditions. From micro laser peels to skin rejuvenation and prescription strength skin care products, Mercy Women's Care can meet more of your health needs and give your self-image a boost, too.
"Residents in Toledo's eastern communities and surrounding areas do not have convenient access to dermatology services," said Susan Jaros, director of Mercy Women's Care at St. Charles and Mercy St. Anne Hospitals. "Mercy Women's Care had the capacity to expand beyond diagnostic services to meet the need."
Laser Treatments Cure Conditions
If you suffer from wrinkles, scars, acne scars or pigmentary problems, Mercy Women's Care offers a special procedure to redo their appearance: MicroLaserPeel™. During this procedure, physicians apply a topical anesthetic and then use a laser to remove the skin's outermost layer. They usually repeat the procedure two to four times to achieve the desired result. At first, you'll experience symptoms resembling sunburn. But within three to four days, you'll have smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin with a significant and immediate change in skin texture and tightness.
Physicians use lasers to treat several other skin conditions, including:
Using laser technology, physicians gently remove these conditions from the visible layers of the skin's surface. Afterward, you may expereince some temporary redness in the treated area; however, this usually subsides within a few hours.
For more severe leg spider veins, physicians may perform sclerotherapy, a procedure where they inject the viens with a medication to reduce their appearance.
Mercy Women's Care physicians perform all of the procedures. For more information on the laser treatments, including prices and hours of operation, call Mercy HealthLink at 419-251-4000.
