FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Developed by the world leaders in fractional laser technology for scar treatment, the laser delivers pulses of energy that heat the dermis at the level of the scar while preserving the epidermis (upper layer of the skin). This thermal reaction causes an inflammatory response followed by a remodelling of the dermis which in turn improves the in the colour, texture and tension of the skin. It promotes renewal and regeneration of skin cells and can be particularly effective when used on red or purple scarring.
Due to the sheer volume of differences in individual scarring, a consultation is essential to discover if you are a suitable candidate and to determine what results you can expect.
We can treat all different types of scarring, but a consultation is required in order to create the course of action to address your individual requirements.
We can address most scarring issues and unlike other treatments have the ability to provide spectacular results on all skin types.
The age of the scar may also determine results, for instance, post – surgical scars benefit immensely from early treatment, this includes post traumatic scars (from accidents) 2-3 weeks after injury.
Here at Nassif MedSpa surgeons often refer their post – surgical patients to us, immediately after surgery for scar treatment, because we have the only family of technology of its kind here in the North West. We would recommend considering a consultation within any elective surgical journey you may be embarking on, in order to minimise any scarring quickly and effectively.
Depending on the size and age of scars, treatments can take between 5 and 20 minutes.
The treatments are very quick and easy and usually comfortable.
If needed, cooling, topical or local anaesthesia can be administered to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.
Dependent on the size, classification and age of scarring, results will vary.
However, treatment often produces immediate results, with improvement over the following months after final treatment
Our treatments for scarring are swift, gentle and successful, however depending on the age, size, depth and type of scar you wish to treat will determine the amount of treatments needed.
