Scar Revision Laser

The Dr. Nassif Iconic Scar Laser is a scar revision treatment that aims to reduce the visible appearance of scarring on the skin. There are many types of scarring, including: fine line scars, keloid scars, scar contractures, pitted or sunken scars and hypertrophic scars, which occur as a result of injury to the skin. The skin naturally develops scar tissue to help repair a wound in the skin, knitting the skin and tissues back together. The break in tissues at the injured site causes a build-up of collagen, which helps to strengthen the wound, but is also different in colour and texture to usual skin tissue.

Scars will often start off looking red and lumpy, that will even out and fade in colour over time. This does not always mean they will totally disappear, which can cause some frustration if they are particularly visible to others. A consultation at Nassif Medspa will assess the type of scarring you have before recommending the approach that is needed to reduce its appearance and the realistic results you can expect to achieve.

The Dr. Nassif Iconic Scar Laser uses both fractional laser and OPL as a fast, simple and effective solution for the reduction or removal of scars. The laser works by delivering pulses of energy that heat the dermis at the depth of the scar, whilst preserving the surface layer of the skin (epidermis). This breaks down the scar tissue, encouraging new tissues to be produced that remodel the dermis. This in turn helps to improve the texture, colour and tension of the skin, whilst also promoting renewal and regeneration of skin cells.

Results can be determined by the size, age and classification of the scarring, which will also influence the amount of treatment sessions that will be needed to achieve the desired result. An immediate improvement may be seen following the first procedure, with the outcome developing further over a period of months and as the treatment course progresses.

FAQs

Am I suitable for scar revision laser?

We can treat all types of scarring at Nassif MedSpa, but a consultation will be needed to assess the type of scarring you have, the treatment course that is needed and the individual results that you can expect. Many of our scar revision patients are often referred to us post-surgery, as early intervention is likely to produce a more successful outcome.

Is this treatment safe?

Scar revision laser is a safe and effective treatment for reducing the appearance of a scar on many areas of the face and body. The professionals at Nassif MedSpa are highly trained and experienced and have an expert understanding of how the procedure works and the type of results that can be produced.

Will it hurt?

The treatments are quick and easy and are often very comfortable. If needed, a topical or local anaesthetic can be administered to make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Cooling packs can also be used to help soothe and calm the skin after the procedure.

Are there any side effects or risks?

This treatment uses light and heat to address the damaged cells, causing minor side effects in some cases, including: swelling, itching and redness. These are temporary effects which will often have disappeared within a couple of days. Your recovery will be monitored by your aesthetic professional and any concerns will be addressed at any time.

How much downtime can I expect?

Laser treatments do not often cause the patient any significant downtime. Any sensitivity at the treatment site will settle fairly rapidly and does not usually cause any disruption to your normal daily routine.
