Scars

Scars

 

There are mainly three kinds of scars.

  • Pigmented Scars or (PIH) from acne.

  • Pitting scars (loss of tissue, craters, dent on skin) from acne or chicken pox.

  • Hypertrophy/ Keloid Scars

Four  main methods to treat scars. For best maximum results combine treatments with each another.

  1. Micropen– Microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment to rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

  2. Fraxel laser It is a deep resurfacing laser. See results faster. But has down time where skin appear like a sun burn, then shed dead skin revealing fresh new skin. Takes 3 to 7 days to recover.

  3. Bellafill –  is an FDA-approved, collagen-based filler used to reduce the appearance of smile lines and pitted acne scars on the cheeks. The injection immediately adds volume below the surface of the skin for smooth results that last about 5 years.

  4. Laser Genesis– Require 12 to 15 sessions. No down time. Minimal pain. You will see results after 6 months and each treatment is done once every 2-4 weeks.

There are many imitation fractionated lasers out there. Make sure you are getting the real Fraxel which is safe and effective and minimize severe side effects.

There is the refine which is for superficial peel, then the restored, which is for deeper peel, then the newest one is the Dual which combines both 1550nm for pigmented scars and pitting scars plus a specialized laser energy to vaporize hard to treat pigmentation in just one treatment! At Skin Perfect we use the Dual Fraxel, the newest most effective of all the models.

You’ll probably feel a bit of heat from the laser while undergoing Fraxel treatments, and local anesthesia will likely be used to prevent most of the discomfort.

For a few days after treatment, the treated area may have minor redness and swelling, similar to sunburn. It’s recommended to avoid exposure to direct sunlight, or to use sunscreen (SPF 30 or above) for 3 months following treatment.
