Have a stubborn scar from your childhood that you’d like to disappear, or scars from a surgery you would like to put behind you? Scar therapy is medically proven to help reduce the appearance, size, height, thickness, and color of scars no matter your skin type or skin color. This treatment flattens, softens, and smooths all scar types, including new and old scars, post-surgery scars, hypertrophic, and keloid scars.
Dependent upon the patient’s needs, we offer different services to treat scars, including microneedling and Laser Genesis.
Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses an FDA-approved electronic pen-like device that causes collagen remodeling and enhances skin rejuvenation. This device, called Dermapen®, uses multiple fine needles to pierce and needle the skin in a vertical motion. These microneedles penetrate the upper (epidermis) and lower (dermis) layers of the skin at targeted and specific depth, causing controlled microscopic wounds and pin point bleeding. This process kick starts the body’s own wound healing response, which results in the release of cellular messengers that increase fibroblast (collagen producing cells) activity.
Laser Genesis gradually stimulates new skin growth and collagen production by using laser technology. The Laser Genesis procedure has been described as calming and therapeutic. Your skin will feel a subtle warming sensation on the surface. Patients will notice improvement after about three treatments, but for optimal results, six to 10 treatments are recommended. The Laser Genesis procedure is painless with zero downtime, making it a great option for busy lifestyles.
