What is Scar Removal?
Scars are a part of the body’s healing process, but these signs of injury can be cosmetic concerns for men and women. The different texture and color of scars makes them stand out from surrounding skin, and a scar will never disappear completely. Aspire Medical Spa offers scar removal with laser skin resurfacing treatments to help camouflage your scar.
What are the Benefits of Scar Removal?
Our laser skin resurfacing treatments may make your scar up to 80% less visible. The treatment is quick and requires no downtime. We can help with almost any type of scar, including raised scars (keloids) and indented scars.
How Does Scar Removal Work?
You develop a scar when your body responds to an open injury to the skin, such as a wound or surgical incision. Collagen fibers quickly cover the area in a chaotic pattern, which is why the resultant scar has an odd appearance and texture. Scar removal via laser skin resurfacing works by removing the abnormal layers of skin and stimulating a slower collagen production. While the scar will not completely disappear, it will blend better with the surrounding, uninjured skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Scar Removal?
We can treat almost any type of scar. The exception is a scar caused by a severe burn. This may require a skin graft. The treatment area should be free of skin conditions, such as acne, that may interfere with the laser skin resurfacing process.
What Should I Expect from Scar Removal?
The most important consideration for scar removal is to have realistic expectations of what can be achieved with laser skin resurfacing. Your medical aesthetician will explain how much the scar can be revised with the procedure.
For the treatment, we may numb the area to help you remain comfortable. A device is used to target the damaged skin with high-intensity laser energy. The energy simultaneously removes thin layers of damaged skin and heats deep tissues to stimulate collagen production.
You can resume your normal activities after the treatment. We may recommend you have several treatments to achieve the desired results.
