Scar Treatment

If you have residual scars from acne, we can offer treatments that can reduce the appearance of these scars. We also have had success with stretch marks and residual scars from trauma or cutting of the skin.

Our treatments can target discoloration and eventually fade the brown, red or purple color. In addition, if you have scars that appear as dents in the skin, our light treatments can build volume under the scar to “lift” the area and reduce the appearance of the scar.

Colored scars, acne and stretch marks can be treated with our Light Therapies. Successful treatments usually involve a combination of treatments.

Often we will use IPL and Laser Genesis for brown or red scars. Acne scars respond well to Laser Genesis and Smoothbeam.

What to Expect

During a scar treatment consultation, we will inspect the scar tissue and determine if we can make a difference in the appearance of your scars. If it is determined that treatment will be beneficial, we will put together a custom treatment package to achieve an improvement in the look of your skin.

To minimize scars, a series of 4 – 8 treatments is typically required. There is no down time and typically no discomfort during treatment. As with all laser and light treatments, you will want to avoid sunlight for a specified time after treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What do the treatments do?

Laser light treatments are particularly good at reducing the discoloration of the skin on and around scar tissue to make them less noticeable. Laser treatments may also help smooth out the scar tissue to align it closer to the surrounding skin.

How do I know what type of light or laser device I will need?

It is difficult to know exactly what treatment is best for your skin until we have the opportunity to meet with you. Factors such as safety, comfort, and cost are often different for each individual client. It is important that we do a comprehensive evaluation to determine what problems you may have and how we can improve your skin. Our consultations are complimentary.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments depends on your situation and what treatment modality is recommended. Typically we design a package of treatments (often different modalities) that will address the problem we are trying to correct.

How long after the treatment will I be able to go out in public?

Usually our clients leave our office without showing any apparent trauma to the skin. We specialize in non- ablative treatments, which means you can have a treatment and return to work or normal activity right away.

What are the side effects?

Usually, there are little to no side effects. However with any light treatment, occasionally there can be mild effects such as swelling, redness, and color change. Often we recommend a patch test to minimize these possibilities. During your consultation the physician will review your medical situation and monitor any issues that arise during treatments.

When will I see results?

Results vary by the type and depth of the scarring. Most patients will see significant results about 4-6 months after beginning treatments. Sometimes, improvements are noticed immediately. However the maximum improvement may not be seen until a month after your final treatments.

How much does the treatment cost?

Treatment costs vary depending on treatment type. Please contact us for a free consultation.

Is there a charge for the initial consultation?

Initial consultations are complimentary. This gives both the client and the practitioner an opportunity to best determine what treatments would be beneficial, effective and practical.
