What is Scar Removal?
Scars are often left behind after injuries or surgeries, forming raised, discolored patches of skin. Although these pose no threat to your health, some people desire scar removal to achieve skin that is smoother and more uniform. Our scar removal treatments enable guests to achieve this through gentle techniques that are safe for the surrounding skin.
Are There Options for Acne Scar Removal?
Our scar removal treatments are versatile and gentle, and can even be used to treat acne scars. We offer the same techniques for acne scars and other scar removal. Depending on the scar being treated, we will change the intensity, duration, and frequency of treatment to obtain the best results.
PRP, otherwise known as the Vampire Facial is a great cosmetic option to help with acne scaring. For more information on PRP please click here
How is Scar Removal Performed?
For scar removal, we may recommend pulsed dye laser treatments with the Candela VBeam pulsed dye laser. This treatment targets the pigments in the skin that are responsible for the dark color, eliminating them to achieve a more even skin tone. In addition to laser treatment, we offer products specifically for the healing and treatment of scars. These products can help guests minimize visible scarring by treating the skin immediately after their procedure, reducing visibility before the scar even forms. All of these products, as well as other great skin care items, are available in our skin care product store.
What Can I Expect from Treatment?
Scar removal with the Candela VBeam pulsed dye laser is a comfortable treatment that is both safe and effective. With dynamic mist cooling, guests remain comfortable throughout the procedure, as it soothes the skin before and after the application of laser energy. This also helps prevent redness from occurring, although some swelling and redness may still persist for a few hours following treatment. Many guests notice an improvement after one treatment; however, most will need a series of multiple treatments to achieve their desired results.
How Much Does Scar Removal Cost?
In order to determine the exact cost of your treatment, we invite guests to schedule an appointment so that we can develop a personalized treatment plan that will satisfy both your health and cosmetic goals. Once a treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide a clear breakdown of costs. To make our services accessible to those who need them, we offer flexible financing and payment options. We also accept insurance when applicable.
