Transcript for Hi-Tech and Lo-Tech Treatments for Your Skin's Problem Areas
Now our series "The skin you're in" and a look inside the pages of "O" magazine and high tech and low-tech options and high-end and -- high/low. You get it. So ABC's Mara schiavocampo will explain more. Here you go. Reporter: Ah, beautiful summer skin. We caught up with Valerie Monroe beauty director at "O" magazine to shed light on three body blemishes. Visible veins, stretch marks and pesky chest discoloration showcasing professional and at home treatments. First up visible veins. The high-tech solution, sclerotherapy at $500 to $1,000 per visit. Go to the dermatologist's office and infect them with a detergent to collapse them. Reporter: This $11 drugstore body bronzer is a low-tech alternative. You can cover them again with a self-tanner or with a washoff body makeup. Reporter: Next up annoying stretch marks. The high-tech solution, laser treatments that can cost upwards of $1,000 per treatment. The low-tech sub city 1250ud over the counter retinol like this $60 serum. They're still red and use a retinoid consistently you'll see a difference in several months. If they're white you talk about camouflage and self-acceptance. That's right. Reporter: Finally irritating chest discoloration. The high-tech solution laser treatments at $1500 a pop. The skin is burned in these little micro sections and that gets rid of the dark spots and it also helps the skin regenerate collagen and fresh skin. Reporter: The low-tech option drugstore creams with niacinamide. This one is only $9. You use it every day and over time it will diminish the dark spots. Reporter: For "Good morning America," Mara schiavocampo, ABC news, New York. Thank you. Joining us is board certified dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe. Talk to me about what this is. New two new super high-tech gadgets. Bracelet called June that doubles as a fashion accessory and a uv sensor so it'll notify you when it's time to reapply sunscreen and then second you've got a very smart little sticker I'm wearing it now called my uv patch and it's made by laroche-posay and tells you right now what is your exposure, how do you trend? Do you have to go to the app? It's a companion app, scan it. Right into your phone and tell you. So if you're out in the sun for an immediate response this bracelet is probably -- They both track immediately but you can test products. That's great. Makeup that says spf 30, you're like, I don't know if I trust that claim, you can layer it right on top and put it to the test. Are there lots of products that say spf 30 and they're not? Really? It's possible we're not using them properly. Too thin a layer. Foundation, we don't put on foundation in a heavy way the way we put on sunscreen. Who makes this? This seems like a great idea. Called the June bracelet, j-u-n I have E. How much. 129 I think. Love the skin you're in. Thank you very much, Dr. Bowe.
