Stretch Marks

Treatments: Massage and exercise, pulsed dye laser (PDL) for redness, no reliable other treatment available yet.

Stretch marks can be caused by rapid expansion of the skin through a growth spurt or rapid weight gain. Long term treatment with oral and topical steroids also predispose to stretch marks.

Although several devices have been approved for the treatment of stretch marks, results are very unpredictable. Twice daily massaging of the affected area with any moisturizer paired with toning exercises still deliver the best results in the majority of individuals.

Dr. Heckman gave me a lot of information and listened and answered all of my questions.

Friendly faces pleasant people wonderful and comfortable atmosphere.

The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional. The doctor herself is a pro, I was very impressed and will definitely recommend her to others, especially of my race. Its very hard to find a good dermatologist and I believe she is wonderful and really knows what she's doing. I am glad that I came here, thank you.

Very efficient!

#82020-11-12

This is one of the best medical offices that I have visited. I see doctors in the Penn and Bryn Mawr systems and this is by far much better than any of those offices. The entire staff is friendly and accommodating. Both doctors are awesome! I have recommended you to family and friends. Keep up the great work!

What can we do better?

(answers:373)

I do not like waiting long periods of time in either the reception area or exam room fort he Dr to come in. The exam with the Dr should be relatively close to the appointment time

#12021-04-07

Everyone and everything is excellent!

#22011-03-23 10:51:26

I was very happy with the care I received.

#32010-09-14 10:44:00

Well basically there is no need because your doing a very good job.

#42010-10-04 16:54:13

it's a little thing, but when you enter an office and ask the receptionist attending to you how are you, she say fine, but does not inquire how you are, and is not engaging, I just think its rude.

#52020-11-01

I recommended this practice to a family member but they showed up 15 mins late to their first appt. due to traffic and were turned away (after traveling over an hour to get here). I would suggest on the first visit to allow more leeway for late appointments (try to fit them in) and then explain the late policy for all appointments moving forward.

#62011-09-21 14:47:49

any information on services provided for enhancing skin apperance

#72021-01-10

Thank you for your help. I will definitely recommend Dr. Ringpfeil to friends.

#82020-09-22

Everything was excellent.

#92021-04-18

I wish the aesthetician was available earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon to accomodate working women.
