Do you have a scar left behind from an injury that did not properly heal? Do you try your best to conceal your scar but wish you could just get rid of it? The consistency of our skin is fragile yet it serves a very important purpose. However, just one small tear to our skin resulting from surgery, injury, burns, or other trauma can leave behind a scar. Some scars may be rather tiny and simple to conceal. But if you have a larger scar, you may be curious what scar treatments are available to reverse its appearance. Here at Flores Plastic surgery, we offer a range of innovative and effective scar removal therapy treatments designed to successfully reduce the size and appearance of scars.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser skin resurfacing is an advanced treatment that harnesses the power of lasers in order to remove dead or damaged skin cells. Treatments include the use of a state of the art 1540 non-ablative laser that allows us to treat scars while also rejuvenating the skin with no required down time. The laser emits specialized waves that penetrate the skin in the treatment area. These restoration-promoting waves actively works to remove the dead cells that make up the scar tissue. It does this by activating healing on a cellular level. Your own cells complete the task of renewing the damaged tissue. This innovative laser treatment can be safely tapered for every patient depending on their specific skin concerns and scar size. This personalized scar treatment can naturally reduce the appearance of scars.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP injections, is among the latest breakthroughs in aesthetic medicine that grants all-natural results of rejuvenated skin. What makes PRP injections so unique is how the solution is created: within a small sample of your own blood at the time of your appointment. A member of our team will withdraw a small blood sample through a very fine needle and spin it in a sterilized centrifuge. Blood plasma bonds with other growth properties while spinning to create the PRP formula. The PRP solution is then administered directly into the scar where it will gradually repair the skin on a cellular level.
PRP With Micro-needling Therapy
PRP is a concentrated treatment that is high in rich growth factors. When combined with the rejuvenating benefits of micro-needling, treatments can be very beneficial for treating and reducing the appearance of scars. During scar treatment, micro-needling is first performed in order to begin stimulating the body’s natural healing response and stimulation of collagen production. Then, the patient’s own blood is collected for the autologous PRP therapy. The blood is configured in order to separate and capture the platelet rich cells from the rest of the blood. Once the PRP cells are collected, they can then be topically applied to the treatment area. The combination of PRP with Micro-needling therapy can amplify the healing process and provide better results. This specialized treatment duo is an effective solution for naturally diminishing the appearance of your unwanted scars through your body’s own natural processes.
