When the body heals from a wound or injury, a scar can sometimes take its place. If the scar is large or located in a particularly conspicuous spot, it can have a negative impact on the affected person’s self-esteem. Scars usually fade somewhat over time, but this process takes several years and does not always guarantee that the scar will disappear. Fortunately, medical technology has advanced to the point that scar removal is more effective now than ever before.

How Does Scar Removal Work?
The goal of any scar removal procedure is to encourage the body to replace scar tissue with new, healthy skin cells. While the body will gradually do this on its own, it is a slow and arduous process. Undergoing a series of professional scar treatments helps ensure that the body regenerates collagen, elastin and healthy skin cells where they are needed most.
Should I Consider Scar Treatment?
Typically, it’s easiest to remove scars once they have had the chance to fade after a few months. If your scar has faded to the point that it is no longer red or raised, it may be the right time to consider scar removal treatment.
Because scar removal is a non-surgical procedure, it is safe for almost anyone to undergo. Our specialist will help you learn more about the procedure, what it involves and if it’s right for you during your initial consultation.
What Can I Expect?
After determining that you are a good candidate for scar removal during your consultation, you can go through with your first treatment session. Depending on factors such as the size and location of the area you want to treat, your procedure should last about an hour. The process is considered to be relatively comfortable, but we can discuss topical numbing options with you prior to your first treatment. You will likely need more than one treatment session to get the best results.
