Acne Scars, Scars and Stretch Marks (Striae)

Acne scars are a psychological difficulty and a stubborn process, but fortunately, there are many options that can improve their appearance and provide an overall smoother, less pigmented healthy glow.A traumatic injury can cause raised, thick and irregular scar tissue. There are three different types of scars: keloid, hypertrophic, and contracture. The skin experts at Vitality can do a physical assessment of the scar to determine which treatment will reduce the appearance of redness, thickness, and uneven areas.Stretch marks occur due to sudden skin growth and stretching. They are characterized by indented streaks on the abdomen, breasts, hips, and buttocks. Typically, they fade and reduce in width over time, but they often never disappear completely without treatment. These treatments can help treat these conditions.

Fractional resurfacing, laser peels, and full pixel burning of the raised affected area are suggested with longer downtime with more aggressive treatments but less than CO2 laser.

Again Joni was wonderful and made me feel very comfortable throughout the procedure. I would definitely recommend Vitality Restoration and Aesthetics!


I've been a client of Joni’s for over a year now. I recently had the “vampire facial” (PRP/DP4 combo treatment) It was my first time doing PRP and micro-needling but Joni put me at ease. She's so sweet and her technical skills are on point! My skin is smoother, sun/ acne spots have faded and my skin just seems overall more radiant! I also had enough PRP for under my eyes and what after difference in my under eye circles after just one treatment. Joni is also super gentle, so the pain was minimal. I am SO SO impressed and happy with all the results!! I have more appointments booked 🙂


I saw Shelby for a facial and a lip flip and couldn’t be happier with the results. The clinic space is beautiful and Shelby really put me at ease during my first Botox treatment. The facial treatment left my skin feeling so soft. My lip flip procedure was so quick and has given me a more confident smile. I can’t recommend Shelby enough. You will not regret seeing her and you leave your appointment feeling like a million bucks!


I can't recommend Joni enough! I've been to her twice now, and it has been a great experience each time.
