SKIN Scar Treatment Program
Scars can be caused by any number of incidents, such as cuts, burns, bites, accidents, surgery, and acne. Various types of scars, including keloid, hypertrophic, atrophic (depressed) scars, red and white scars must be addressed according to their individual characteristics. SKIN MediSpa offers a comprehensive scar treatment program, including the latest and most effective treatments available today, to address scarring of all types.
A SKIN specialist will review previous and current skin care, perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program.
Your recommended treatment path toward the improvement of your scars will include one or more of the following clinically proven options:
SKIN’s Medical Grade Products are customized daily regimens for home care of your skin to maximize treatment results and maintain healthy skin.
SKIN Medical Microdermabrasion involves mild abrasion using either salt crystals or diamond tip hand pieces to smooth out the skin surface. A series of treatments will diminish the appearance of mild scarring but will not improve deeper scars.
SKIN’s Acne Peels For Face and Body are the most technically researched, results-oriented formulations available today and contain a unique blend of acids, enzymes and other nutrients to eliminate acne breakouts, improve the tone, texture and clarity of the skin, and reduce or eliminate acne scars. The exfoliation process of the peels eliminates buildup of dead cells and debris on the surface of the skin, and speeds cell turnover leaving your skin noticeably softer, smoother and clearer.
SKIN’s Vascular Laser Treatment can greatly reduce redness and flatten scars quickly and easily. The procedure takes 15 to 20 minutes and patients can immediately return to regular activity.
SKIN Intense Pulsed Light (IPL)/Radio Frequency Treatment incorporates intense pulse light and radio frequency energies to reduce the redness found in newer scars. These energies also stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of scars. Options include Renew™ and Icon MAXG™and MAXYs ™ IPL Laser.
SKIN’s Fractional Resurfacing treatments offer effective treatment of both old and new scars. Heat and energy are delivered beneath the surface of the scar, stimulating the body’s natural healing response and maximizing collagen production. Collagen production increases over time and with each treatment, producing new healthy skin cells that work to repair, plump and mend the appearance of each scar. Options include Sublative™, Fractora™ , Icon™ Fractional Non-Ablative Laser, Icon™ Fractional Ablative Laser.
SKIN’s Injectable Fillers provide a way of treating scarring that has left depressions in the skin. This type of treatment is often an effective way of treating scarring left from acne. A complimentary consultation with our medical director is required prior to any injectable filler treatment.
Most scars can be dramatically improved. The degree of the improvement is dependent on the characteristics of the scar and treatment methods chosen. Some of the benefits patients can expect to see include an improvement in texture as well as a reduction in the red and brown pigmentation of scars.
