Scar Removal

What is Scar Removal?

The truth is the scar will never completely go away. But there are some methods that can help reduce its size and change its appearance. And over the years more and more people have been looking for ways to erase or at least minimize or lighten their scars. Aren’t we glad that we’ve finally found treatments that are non-invasive, non-surgical, and does not involve a lot of pain? Chemical Peels, Microdermabrasion, and photofacials come to mind – let’s dive in.

What Is It & How It's Done

Chemical peel: Is when a certain chemical like alpha hydroxy acid is lathered at the right amount on your face and is left there for about 10 minutes before it’s washed off. This will help blot out the top layers of your skin, which helps lighten the scars on your face. This process is especially used for acne scars, but can also be used for deeper scars. You can do this once a month. Microdermabrasion: is a more manual way of removing the top layer of your skin (the epidermis) through a microdermabrasion device- which comes with a diamond tip that slowly exfoliates the outer layer until the new and more vigorous skin surfaces. You can do this every 2 to 4 weeks. Photofacial: Photofacial uses a beam of light and targets the pigments or the scars.

So not only does the outer layer start peeling off, but the lower layer is also heated which then causes more collagen production. And more collagen production means healthier and younger looking skin. You can do this once a month.

But regardless of which process you opt for, the goal remains the same to bring out a more vibrant and youthful you!
