Depending on the size, color and texture of the scar, we may recommend that you use either IPL light treatment, skin resurfacing lasers or microneedling. A consultation with one of our professionals will be your best indicator for treatment.
A non-invasive treatment, fractional laser beams penetrate deeply under the skin’s surface to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin. This targeted treatment uses a laser resurfacing tool to smooth wrinkles, stretch marks, and enlarged pores. It’s the gold standard for deep repair and skin resurfacing, with results lasting at least six months after the final treatment.
This treatment uses microneedles to produce micro-injury to the skin which stimulates the production of the body’s own collagen and elastin. It is very effective when done in a series, to help eliminate deep scarring and stretch marks. Numbing cream is applied for 30 minutes prior to the treatment, making it very comfortable. After treatment, you will be required to apply a full spectrum sunscreen SPF 50 or higher daily to protect your like new baby skin in the treated areas.
For Stretch Marks
Since stretch marks are often just pigment in the skin and are not particularly “raised”, the treatment of this condition can typically be done using light energy, or Photofacial technology.
A Photofacial or IPL treatment is a light therapy treatment for the treatment of pigmentation. The machine applicator emits light energy that targets unwanted pigmentation in the skin, pulling it further towards the surface with each treatment. Eventually, these spots will slough away as dry skin, leaving you will a more even tone. For complete results, it is recommended that you complete a series of treatments, indicated by your Photofacial practitioner.
