You don’t have to live with unsightly scars. We have several options available for us to use to help decrease the size, redness, and thickness of scars. In order to successfully treat your scar(s), we’ll employ a multi-faceted approach of the below techniques alongside specially-formulated injections and gels that have been clinically proven to provide fast, lasting results.
Laser Scar Resurfacing
This type of scar treatment uses a high-tech medical laser to safely remove the outer layer of the skin at the site of the scar, effectively eliminating the damaged skin cells at the surface and leaving behind a smoother, more tight appearance.
Dermabrasion is a type of exfoliation that uses a fast-rotating surgical tool to loosen the top layer of skin tissue, allowing for the removal of scars. While dermabrasion can take longer to heal than other methods, it’s often more effective.
Also known as collagen induction therapy, this non-surgical, non-laser treatment uses tiny micro-needles to gently perforate the skin and create microscopic channels in the epidermis. This naturally encourages your body to increase collagen production, allowing for the formation of fresh tissue that helps repair scars and hyperpigmentation.
Scar excision or revision surgery is used to try and minimize the appearance of a scar and to try and make the scar better blend in with the surrounding skin. During this procedure, we will try and remove as much of the scar tissue as possible, take care to carefully close the new wound.
