Acne is a common skin condition affecting up to 80% of people in their teens and twenties, and up to 5% of older adults. While many people recover from acne without permanent effects, for some, inflammatory acne can cause severe discomfort, discoloration and scarring with few treatment options available. The traditional course of treatment involves prescription antibiotics or topical gels, which can take several months for the desired results.

LASER SCAR TREATMENTS

Scars are the result of your body’s natural ability to heal itself. Though they are a remarkable feature of how the body naturally responds to injury, scars present cosmetic issues that most patients would prefer not to have. Today’s advancements in laser technology permits successful treatment of scars and even striae distensae (stretch marks) in all areas of the body.

In Dr. Ward’s initial laser scar treatment consultations, he will appropriately classify your type of scars and/or striae distensae to determine which laser is likely to be most effective. Here are some common types of scars we treat.

Acne Scars ­ Severe acne can cause these scars once it disappears, creating a dimpled or “pitted” look in the skin.

Contracture Scars ­ These scars happen when the skin is burned and appears to look like the skin is pulled taut and often hinders movement.

Hypertrophic Scars ­ Commonly these scars are raised and red. They are caused by excessive collagen which contributes to the scar rising above the skin level.

Keloid Scars ­ Result of when the body produces too much tissue during the healing processes of a scar causing it to protrude outward.

Striae Distensae (Stretch Marks) ­ This is a form of scarring of the skin with an off­color hue caused by tearing of the dermis

LASER SCAR TREATMENT PROCEDURE & RECOVERY

Because there are various types of scars, each one requires slightly different treatment services. As a non­surgical cosmetics practice, the Elite Aesthetics team will help you determine the exact non­surgical solutions to allow you the ability to avoid the hassle of surgery and rid yourself of unwanted scars.

Like many things in life, your return or results are directly proportional to the type of procedure you receive, which in turn, affects downtime. More aggressive treatments will give you better results, but they will also cause more downtime. Dr. Ward will discuss your needs and assess the benefits that will best suite your treatment and life schedule.
