Scars are a natural result of your body’s healing processes. These common skin conditions are formed due to the process of wound repair occurring in tissues like your skin. Unless the wound is a very minor one, it will often result in some level of scarring. Scars can be caused by accidents, acne, surgery, or certain diseases. No matter what the cause, if you have prominent scars, you are probably seeking out your professional scar treatment options.
Peels for Skin Rejuvenation
Having a peel performed on your skin can dramatically reduce the appearance of scarring. A peel containing certain acids can remove some of the top layer of your skin to trigger the formation of new collagen and subsequent skin remodeling.
A TCA peel can be applied to your skin affected by scarring to minimize or remove the condition. This type of peel will sometimes require some downtime with a controlled scab. But once the scab and skin heals, the scarring should be reduced.
Microneedling for Scarring
Radiofrequency and microneedling with PRP is a great choice to treat scars caused by acne, surgery, or trauma. During this treatment, we carefully move the device over your skin, forming many tiny micro-channels in the upper skin layers. Your body’s response to the treatment will be to replace old, damaged skin tissue affected by scars with fresher skin showing less prominent scarring.
Unless your scars are extremely superficial, you would probably benefit from having a series of these treatments performed on your skin. This is because the procedure leads to cumulative effects; each additional microneedling session will build upon the results of the previous one.
Laser Treatment for Scars
Laser treatments make an extremely effective professional scar treatment procedure. The treatment utilizes focused light to remove outer skin layers and trigger the production of new skin cells that replace damaged skin tissue. Laser treatments do not always completely remove scars, but they are quite effective at reducing their appearance, as well as minimizing other blemishes.
