How to Remove Scars | Scar Removal Treatments
Scars can never permanently be removed, however there are various ways to dramatically lighten its appearance. Thanks to the latest cosmetic technology, scars can be lightened after just a few sessions.
How Are Scars Formed?
When your dermis (deep layer of the skin) is damaged, your body is naturally going to try to heal itself. It does this by creating new collagen and elastin fibers that heal the damaged skin which results in a scar.
There are a variety of scars such as flat and dark scars, as well as raised scars. The most common type of scars are:
Hypertrophic Scars: Hypertrophic scars are raised scars that occur due to an overproduction of collagen. Luckily hypertrophic scars improve as the years go by.
Keloid Scars: Keloid scars are similar to hypertrophic scars. They are also raised, but continue growing after the wound is already healed. These scars can cause pain and itchiness.
Atrophic Scars: Atrophic scars appear to look sunken and are often caused by acne. These are caused when underlying fat or muscle no longer supports the skin.
Treatment for Scars
Fotona Laser for Scars: The Fotona laser is a non-invasive laser that is effective on a wide range of scars. The Fotona uses the “Er:YAG laser for rejuvenation for gentle ablation of scar tissue and activation of collagen remodeling.” The laser works best on acne scars but it is also effective on hypertrophic scars.
Dermapen for Scars: The Dermapen™ is a revolutionary micro-needling device which aims to tighten, lift and rejuvenate skin. The Dermapen™ is the latest and most advanced model available today. The Dermapen™ can visibly improve the appearance of:
- fine lines
- surgical, acne and trauma scars
- stretch marks
- and much much more!
Plasma Fibroblast for Scars: With our state-of-the-art Plasma Fibroblast under our highly trained estheticians and practitioners, we force the skin tissue to contract virtually immediately by thermally disrupting the skin as well as fibroblasts. This micro-trauma stimulates new collagen (neocollagenesis) and helps release and activate essential proteins and growth factors like cytokines and fibroblasts, which makes more collagen than before it was disrupted.
Venus Viva: Venus Viva™ NanoFractional Microneedle Radiofrequency. Venus Viva™ skin resurfacing treatments can effectively reduce signs of skin damage and improve the appearance of uneven skin texture.
eMatrix: eMatrix is a non-invasive, FDA approved treatment that uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency energy that is precisely directed onto the skin in a series of patterns. The skin around the dots is stimulated to begin an accelerated healing process, which encourages the production of collagen and healthy cells.
