Scar Removal for Acne Scars and Surgical Scars, All Skin Types and Excellent Outcomes
For patients who dislike their unsightly scars, Virginia Surgical Arts offers scar revision utilizing several different modalities. Some patients dislike the pigmentation of their scars, while some patients dislike the texture and/or elevation of their scar. Our team at Virginia Surgical Arts will customize a treatment plan for each individual as every scar is uniquely different.
Fractional laser resurfacing is one of our most popular modalities to smooth and reduce scarring, offering remarkable results on any skin type. Pulses of fractional laser light break down scar tissue, triggering new tissue to form in its place. For those patients who struggle with elevated scars, Dr. Vendetti may administer steroid injections into the scar which results in a more level, sightly scar. In some cases, having the scar cut out surgically is the best option. Other scar revision services include lesion removal such as unwanted skin tags and moles.
Acne scars and surgical scars may be a cause of a person’s emotional and or physical pain and affect their quality of life. In severe cases, scars can even limit a person’s mobility. Surgical scar removal procedures are painful and invasive and have a risk for complications. Laser scar removal from Palomar® offers a noninvasive solution that uses fractional laser technology to deliver rapid, reliable scar removal with less risk, less pain and minimal downtime.
We also perform additional scar revision treatments for lesion removal. This includes the removal of both skin tags and moles.
Our fractional laser technology is the driving power behind our acne and surgical scar removal procedure. We use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients’ skin. Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and little to no pain is felt.
Laser scar removal with Palomar is appropriate for use on all skin types, making ours the preferred method of scar removal for excellent clinical outcomes.
How Laser Scar Removal Works
Laser scar removal for acne and surgical scars uses fractional laser light to create micro-columns of coagulated tissue that extend deep into the dermis without ablating the epidermis.
This triggers a wound-healing process that replaces the disorganized, compacted scar tissue with healthy new tissue, greatly diminishing the appearance of the scar tissue. Advanced Contact Cooling protects the epidermis, promoting safer, more comfortable treatments.
