What Kinds of Scars Can You Treat?
We understand that scars come in all shapes and sizes, so we don’t limit ourselves to one single treatment. We offer a number of different modalities, enabling us to customize your scar reduction treatment to address the specific issues you’ve found yourself facing. While we might not be able to erase the presence of your scar tissue completely, depending on the treatment area, we’ll likely be able to reduce it significantly, using advanced treatment modalities, like fat-derived stem cells, which can regenerate elastin within scar tissue. Our scar removal treatments are most effective with the following types of scars, and we’ll pick the treatment that’s right for you during your in-person consultation:
- Pigmented scarring
- Red or purple scars
- Textured scarring
- Depressed scars
- Raised scars
- Acne scarring
Injectable Scar Reduction
Injectable treatments can be used to flatten scars that are raised on the surface of the skin, utilizing what’s known as a corticosteroid solution. This solution reduces the size of a scar that’s raised off the surface of the skin by breaking down the fibers that make up the scar, causing it to flatten and reducing its size.
By utilizing laser energy, we can help to resurface the skin, removing scar tissue without the need for invasive surgery, while also encouraging the natural production of collagen and elastin at the same time. This procedure not only significantly reduces the appearance of scarring, it also encourages long-term skin health as it does so.
