Top Four Professional Skin Treatments for Scars

Whether from acne or a bug bite or an accident, scars can be frustrating and annoying, particularly if they are deep and very obvious.  But with the right professional skin treatment, the appearance of scars can be greatly reduced or in some cases, seemingly disappear!

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis is a non-ablative, non-invasive laser that heats the upper dermis of the skin in order to stimulate collage regrowth, shrink pore size and help improve skin texture and tone—including the appearance of scars.  Recovery time is typically brief with mild redness.

 ResurFX

ResurFX™ is a fractional, non-ablative laser resurfacing procedure that creates areas or ‘zones’ of heat injury on the skin which kick-starts natural collagen production, and can lead to a noticeable improvement in the appearance and texture of scars. Treatment with ResurFX is completed with one pass over the skin (vs. the seven or eight required by previous lasers), increasing patient comfort and minimizing treatment time.  

Microneedling

A minimally invasive skin rejuvenation therapy, microneedling uses tiny needles to create localized injuries on the skin, which the body then repairs by producing new collagen and elastin.  Because the epidermis remains intact during this procedure, it is ideal for sensitive areas of the skin, and has been shown to produce a noticeable improvement in the appearance of scars. 

Pixel

Pixel is a fractional laser used for skin resurfacing that has shown remarkable results in the treatment of scars, including acne scars. Like ResurFX, the Pixel laser creates ‘zones’ of micro-injury on the skin, which triggers the formation of new collagen and healthy tissue for skin that is firm, lifted, and smooth. Downtime is minimal, and this treatment is suitable for face, neck, arms, hands, and chest.
