What can the scar removal procedure do for me?
Scars are disfiguring marks left as a result of the natural healing process of injured tissue. How a scar develops depends on how the body heals and the circumstances of the original injury and reduction treatment may be taken to considerably reduce the prominence of the imperfection. Advanced laser technology in expert hands at NCBC Med-Laser can be used to improve the size, shape, and colour to better how one feels about the personal matter of their appearance. Laser scar removal is safe on both the body and the face and the techniques work on a wide range of skin colours with successful results.
Before & After
Acne Scar Removal
While keeping careful attention that the acne stays in remission, the laser acne scar removal procedure can provide needed relief to your skin (and confidence). NCBC Med-Laser is proud to feature the 1540 fractional laser resurfacing treatment which is proven to gradually fade acne scarring and improve the texture and cosmetic appearance of the skin.
What are my treatment options?
Each patient is assessed individually to determine the best course of treatment. The best treatment for your scar depends on your scar and the medical professionals at NCBC Med-Laser can expertly correct its appearance beginning with an in-person consultation to thoroughly explain the treatment options and results you can expect. Once your skin has been carefully examined, a customized treatment plan will be designed with your skin care goals in mind.
The Cynosure Palomar 1540 non-ablative fractional laser uses high-precision microbeams to penetrate the skin, heat and remodel the collagen stores to improve the appearance of the scar. The XD Microlens allows for deeper penetration to reach the tough conditions of scars. That’s why it’s the gold standard for laser scar removal.
An effective non-laser acne scar treatment method is Micro Needling, an innovative non-invasive collagen stimulation procedure. The medical grade application involves rolling a special handheld device embedded with tiny surgical grade stainless steel needles over the skin which creates thousands of micro-channels and penetrates the upper dermis responsible for generating collagen and elastin. This uses the skin’s natural healing process to release growth factors, stimulate fibroblasts, and increase cell proliferation.
Another non-laser treatment method with high client satisfaction is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) skin rejuvenation, a natural, non-invasive method of treating and rejuvenating damaged skin. The process relies on the body’s regenerative ability to repair damaged tissue, foster collagen production, and plump the surrounding area. This is through the use of Platelet-Rich Plasma extracted from the patient’s blood. During the procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient and run through a centrifuge, which separates the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the red blood cells. Afterwards, this Platelet-Rich Plasma is re-injected into the treatment site where growth factors stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
Take-home products are also used to fortify and maintain clinic treatment. These safely penetrate the dermal layers to fade scarred imperfections to reveal a more even tone.
Does it hurt?
Wondering about any pain involved with a procedure is understandable. Most patients have a comfortable laser scar removal experience and local anaesthesia is available if you believe that you have a lower pain tolerance.
How many sessions do I need?
The number of sessions is unique to each patient depending on the depth, cause, size, location, and rate of healing of the skin, and during the initial consultation to discuss the treatment plan, you will be advised as to how many sessions are recommended for your specific scar. On average, 3-6 sessions are recommended.
