Scar Removal: Laser & Acne Treatments
Scars are something that the majority of the population must deal with and can be found on several areas of the body. However, some scarring can be a source of embarrassment and low self-esteem for many individuals. This may be especially so if the location is within the facial area. These scars are often hard to cover up and often may not improve with time. Despite all the removal creams and lotions on the market geared towards the consumer, many provide only minimal results or simply do not work.
At the American Institute For Plastic Surgery we offer the most innovative products and treatments for scar improvement. With proper care you can actually improve the final quality of any new scar as well as significantly improve any existing scar. Through our office, we offer prescription products to help you improve your scar such as Scar Fade, a topical silicon scar cream and Mepitac, a Medical scar tape which is applied over the scar, can be worn in the shower and is replaced every three to four days for about 8 weeks.
Laser Scar Revision
Older, thick scars are not only unsightly, they can sometimes be painful. We can greatly improve that type of scar as well, with injections, lasers and sometimes removal of the old thick scar. Laser scar revision is a process that has been shown to effectively remove scars utilizing laser technology. This procedure is completed easily and quickly. In addition, the procedure is considered safe for the majority of healthy individuals. Services are FDA approved and improvements can typically be seen as soon as the first treatment, although individual results will vary.
Acne Scar Treatment
One of the most popular services continues to be acne scar treatment. It is not uncommon for acne to leave large and deep scarring on the facial area, especially the cheeks. Although many try to improve the appearance by attempting to conceal scars with makeup this often backfires leading to an even rougher appearance. Laser revision can take care of this unsightly dilemma by offering the benefit of complete removal.
Often a scar will have lingering redness and brown areas long after it has healed. You may want to consider a few simple treatments of IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) to resolve these discolorations.
Improvement to the texture can be achieved with several resurfacing treatments, whether the scar is old or new.
