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 treatments are available to reverse its appearance. Here at Flores Plastic surgery, we offer a range of innovative and effective scar 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 penetrates the treatment area and actively works to remove the dead cells that make up the scar tissue.This innovative laser treatment can be safely tapered for every patient depending on their specific skin concerns and scar size.
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 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 which are then topically applied to the treatment area. The combination of PRP with Micro-needling therapy can amplify the healing process and provide better results.
