Having scars on your body can be upsetting. Whether they’re a result of severe acne, an accident or injury, it can be tough to find effective scar removal treatments. At Perfect Skin Center, we have compiled a list of options to consider.
Removing scars completely can be extremely difficult, but there are ways to minimize them. Choosing the right scar removal treatment largely depends on the type of scar you have. Here are some common types of scars to help you understand your options.
These are scars from an injury. They are usually firm, dark or pink and form due to excess collagen beneath your skin. Keloid scars can extend beyond the area of injury.
These scars resemble keloid scars but don’t go beyond the initial area of injury. Hypertrophic scars are raised and often appear red.
These scars are a result of a severe burn. They’re usually deep and can make the skin tighter.
So, how can you remove the scars?
Laser Scar Removal
Laser technology can be used to remove scars or reduce their appearance significantly. During the treatment, the laser is moved along the target area. Energy from the beam can vaporize or remove the underlying layer of skin. This exposes a natural-looking layer, which heals with time to reduce the appearance of the scar.
Laser scar removal can be used to treat various types of scars. And since there are several types of laser systems, we can advise you on what suits your skin to realize great results.
Patients who have used the treatment say it’s highly-effective, safe, and offers long-lasting results. The secret is finding the right professionals who understand your skin condition and treatment.
