Scar Revision Laser
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.
