Let People See You, Not Your Scars

Scars come in many forms.  They may be raised or depressed in texture and various shades of pink, red, brown, or grey.  Most scars are the result of acne, trauma, or surgery.  Fortunately, we can lessen the appearance of each of these.

There are multiple ways to treat scars and the treatment option right for you will depend on the level of severity and your personal goals.  Often people go through a multi-step treatment process that reduces the appearance of scars that also helps to improve the health of their skin.

Typical scar treatments include:

  • Pulsed Dye Laser Treatments: Reduces the amount of pink or red pigment in a newer scar and lessening the appearance of some acne scars, surgical, and traumatic scars.
  • Fractional Laser Treatments: Lessens the raised or depressed texture found in scars and creates new collagen to soften the look of the scar.
  • Nd: YAG Laser Treatments: Remove grey, carbon based scars usually caused by a traumatic event like a fall on pavement or concrete.
  • Chemical Peels: Reduces the Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH) resulting from acne lesions. Peels encourage new cell growth to lessen the appearance of the acne marks.
  • Topical Skin Care Products: Aids in the softening of a scar’s appearance with carefully selected ingredients to fade the irregular pigment caused by the scar.
