Acne and Surgical Scar Reduction Q & A
What is acne and surgical scar reduction?
Acne and surgical scar reduction is a procedure that reduces the appearance of your scars. At Still Beauty & Med Spa, the team uses innovative Icon laser technology to target your scars with a two-pronged approach. Their laser treatment triggers a wound healing response that removes this tissue and replaces it with health tissue. The treatment is effective on scars anywhere on your body, including your face.
What happens during scar-reduction treatment?
You begin your scar reduction with a consultation with one of the skincare experts at Still Beauty & Med Spa. They’ll carefully examine your scar and skin type, while asking questions about your skincare habits.
If laser scar reduction is the best treatment to address your concerns, your provider will give you an estimate on the number of sessions needed to reduce the appearance of your scar and a quote for the total cost of treatment. Each patient has different needs and treatment is customized for each individual.
During your treatments, you’ll wear protective goggles while your skin care expert uses a hand-held wand to direct the laser toward your scar. Laser scar-reduction treatment typically takes around 30 minutes or longer if you’re having a large area treated. You’ll notice a warming sensation during your treatment, but the sensation isn’t typically painful.
How should I take care of my skin after scar-reduction treatment?
You won’t need any downtime to recover from your scar-reduction treatments. Your skin might be a little pink right after your laser treatment, but that should subside within an hour or so.
You will need to take care to avoid the sun with broad-spectrum sunscreen and wide-brimmed hats. The Icon® laser treatment can make your skin more sensitive to UV light and could lead to hyperpigmentation and other discolouration. You will be provided comprehensive post-care sheet after treatment.
You might also benefit from scheduling customized facials with the team at Still Beauty & Med Spa. Regular facials help refresh and moisturize your skin, which can support the effects of your laser scar-reduction treatments.
If you have scars that are making you feel self-conscious, call Still Beauty & Med Spa today to schedule a consultation, and find out if laser scar reduction is right for you.
