Laser scar treatment

Whenever the skin is damaged, it has to heal, and this may result in a scar.  Depending on your skin type, health, and genetics, the scar may be unsightly and may make you very self-conscious. If you think people see your scars before they see you, we can help with laser scar treatment.

 

 

What Causes Scarring?

A scar is caused by the body's attempt to throw a quick patch over the site of a wound. The skin that your body produces to cover the damaged area looks and functions differently from the rest of your skin. Over time, your body will try to replace the temporary patch with skin that more closely matches the rest of your skin. Your body's ability to fade the scar with time depends on the size and type of the scar as well as personal factors including genetics, age, and skin health.

Sometimes the healing process is overzealous and creates red, raised scars known as hypertrophic scars. Sometimes, these scars can even grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound, in which case they are called keloid scars.

 

 Scar Treatment Options

The best treatment option for your scar depends on the type of scar. Some scars are atrophic, or depressed, such as is commonly seen with acne scars. Acne scars and other atrophic scars can be improved tremendously by laser skin resurfacing, which stimulates your body to fill in under the scars with collagen. We can also use injectable fillers to raise scars and give your skin a smooth appearance.

Hypertrophic scars can be treated with steroid injections that will diminish their appearance. Along with the natural reduction of the scar, this gives very good results.

Keloid scars can be treated with steroid injections for a while. They will diminish, but not disappear. For further treatment, we utilize laser scar treatments that can further reduce the appearance of keloids.

Scar treatment is very sensitive. Scars result from a deviation in the normal healing process, and it's important to work with a doctor who understands which treatments will diminish scars and which might trigger new scars. At Bellissima Medical we can recommend the best scar treatment for your scar and your skin. We have access to the latest laser technology and other treatment tools helps us offer you the best treatment to meet your cosmetic goals.
