While most scars are harmless, they can greatly affect your overall appearance. But instead of living with them, you can minimize the appearance of these blemishes through laser scar removal treatments from GLOW by Elena Reitman MD. Our medical spa offers state-of-the-art facilities led by a board-certified physician with a team of highly-trained professionals to get you the flawless skin you desire.
Rather than resorting to invasive plastic surgery to remove scar tissue, you can now opt for a minimally invasive procedure that can minimize different types of scar tissue and promote new, healthy skin cells in its place. Some types of scars can’t be totally removed, but we can make them less noticeable and give you the appearance of smooth, flawless, and healthy skin.
Experience the glowing difference our laser scar removal treatments can provide compared to other invasive plastic surgeries. If you have any type of permanent and superficial scars that you’d like to erase, schedule your initial consultation with Dr. Reitman today.
Scars are part of your skin’s natural healing process. When your skin is wounded, your body creates collagen fibers to close up the gap and prevent germs and other foreign objects from entering your body. While some scars are very minor and can fade over time, larger scars can cause some discomfort and may not fully fade and result in permanent scars. Rather than performing invasive skin grafting procedures, you can have laser scar removal done as a minimally-invasive solution to treat the superficial appearance of scars.
At GLOW by Elena Reitman MD, we use the Secret RF laser, a state-of-the-art device that can deliver effective laser scar removal treatment. Microneedling pins and RF thermal energy are used to remove the outer layer of the damaged skin’s surface. At the same time, the laser can stimulate new skin cell production. With these two processes combined, your body can naturally get rid of damaged skin cells from scarring and then bring forward newer skin cells for a healthier and smoother appearance.
By choosing laser scar removal treatments, you can get the following improvements on the treated area:
Depending on the type of scar you have, our laser scar removal treatments can erase or at least minimize the appearance of scars anywhere on your body. Through our treatments, you can achieve smooth and flawless skin by treating bumpy and prominent scar tissue.
The process of microneedling and administering RF thermal energy onto your scar tissue can also benefit the surrounding skin. Laser scar removal heats up your skin and promotes collagen production. This can help bring forward healthier skin cells and give your skin a more refreshed appearance.
While laser scar removal is a good option for those who want to remove old and permanent scars, not everyone may be qualified to have it. Prior to receiving treatment, our patients undergo an initial consultation with Dr. Reitman. She can help you understand the process of laser scar removal, the process, whether laser scar removal can help you achieve your beauty goals, and if you’re a qualified candidate to receive treatment.
You are qualified for laser scar removal if you can relate to the following:
Rejuvenate your appearance and achieve smoother skin with our safe, highly effective, and transformative aesthetic treatments at GLOW by Elena Reitman MD. We offer laser scar removal sessions as an alternative to more invasive options to remove scar tissue that can affect the overall appearance of your face and body. Some of the reasons our medical spa stands out among the rest include:
A: Depending on how prominent your scar is, you may need around 3 to 5 treatments to get the best results. Keep in mind that this won’t totally remove scar tissue, but it can minimize its appearance.
A: It depends on how deep and how large your keloid scar is. We may be able to reduce its appearance, but larger scars may need alternative treatments. Schedule your consultation with Dr. Reitman so she can determine if your keloid scars can be treated through laser scar removal or if you should explore alternative options.
A: If Dr. Reitman finds that you’re a qualified candidate for receiving treatment, we can proceed to the actual procedure. After applying a topical anesthetic, we use a handheld device attached to the Secret RF laser treatment to perform microneedling around the scar. While the micro pins create microwounds to trigger collagen production, it simultaneously releases RF thermal energy to boost skin cell regeneration. Each scar may need at least 20 minutes of treatment.
A: Following your treatment, you may experience symptoms like pain, swelling, redness, minor bleeding, skin crusting, and discoloration. These can subside within a number of days and can be managed through various home remedies. We can guide you through the aftercare process to ensure the best outcome for your skin.
