Scars are a result of your body healing itself after experiencing some type of trauma such as acne, chicken pox, surgery or an accident. They form because the body produces too much collagen or because there was tissue loss in the area. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we offer a number of laser and cosmetic treatments that specifically target and work to improve skin damaged by scarring. Whether you’re dealing with a raised or pitted scar, we offer solutions that may help to reduce or remove it.
For raised scars, microdermabrasion treatment can often be effective in reducing their appearance. We offer SilkPeel® rejuvenation, which works to remove damaged micro-layers on the skin while simultaneously exfoliating the skin of dirt and dead skin cells. This treatment can be performed almost anywhere on the body including the face and is a minimally-invasive procedure.
For those looking to specifically target acne scarring, there are a number of effective options available that can work for those with mild to severe skin concerns. Chemical peels work to target acne scars by softening and peeling away the top layer of your skin which leaves you with a smoother face and a less visible scar. This treatment can be tailored to your individual needs, so the depth and strength of the chemical peel can be customized given your concerns.
Réjuvapen® microneedling is another possible option that can treat acne scarring by utilizing micro-needling technology. Similar to laser resurfacing, this procedure uses tiny needles to stimulate collagen production which results in scars becoming smoother and less visible in the treated area.
Fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing is a common option to help combat more severe scars. The laser targets scarred skin by going deep into the skin’s layers and penetrating the dermis. The body then produces more collagen and elastin to heal these wounds thus generating new skin cells and tissue in the area.
No matter what type of scarring you may be experiencing, there are a number of options that can help target your concerns. The experts at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center can evaluate your skin and help you discover the best treatment given your individual needs.
