For a scar reduction treatment plan, make an appointment at Wisconsin Laser Center in Neenah, Wisconsin. Call expert laser technician Stacie Miller or request a consultation online today.
Scars form as your body’s response to a wound. If you have an injury or severe acne, your body grows new, thicker collagen fibers to heal itself. These fibers have a different texture and tone than surrounding tissue, and a scar develops.
Today’s cosmetic technology helps reduce the look of scars from acne, injury, surgery, and more. At Wisconsin Laser Center, Stacie uses the PicoSure® laser system for scar reduction.
PicoSure laser treatment taps into your body’s natural ability to produce new, healthy skin cells. Laser treatment removes damaged scar cells with light energy and encourages your skin to grow more collagen and elastin in place of the scar.
Fractional radiofrequency (RF) microneedling is another option for scar-reduction treatment. Microneedling creates tiny, controlled wounds on your skin to increase collagen and elastin production.
Cosmetic treatments fade and reduce the look of many types of scars and discoloration, including:
Laser treatment also addresses hyperpigmentation, age spots, and even warts. It’s a powerful treatment that tackles scars and discoloration, removing damaged cells and encouraging natural, healthy cell production to fade scars.
When your body makes more healthy collagen and elastin, the scar fades and smoother, toned skin replaces it. While cosmetic treatments like lasers and microneedling can’t remove scars completely, they can effectively minimize the look of scars and help bring your confidence back.
Your scar-reduction treatment plan is personalized for you. Stacie begins by examining your scar to recommend the best treatment options. Some people see results with PicoSure laser scar reduction and others benefit from RF microneedling or a combination of treatments.
With laser scar reduction, you may have a few treatments depending on the location, size, and type of scar you have.
Stacie often applies a topical anesthetic to your skin to keep you comfortable during treatment. The laser energy works to remove damaged cells and replace them with healthy ones.
RF microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that takes between 30 and 45 minutes. Radiofrequency waves and microneedling work together to boost your skin’s production of collagen and elastin to cover and replace the cells in the scar.
With scar-reduction treatment, you can have revitalized skin. To find out if scar reduction is right for your skin, make an appointment with Stacie at Wisconsin Laser Center. Call today or book online.
