Scars form as part of the skin's natural healing process whenever multiple layers of skin are injured. The injury may be the result of an accident, surgery, burns or even severe acne. There are basically three types of scars: Atrophic, Hypertrophic and Keloidal.
Laser Scar Removal is considered as one of the safest methods for decreasing the presence of scars. It saves you from Surgeon’s knife while giving equally good or even better results than the surgery. Laser treatment is simple and easy, in-and-out procedure and no anesthesia is required. The biggest advantage of Laser treatment is the speed with which the results are achieved. Most patients notice improvement after the very first sitting.
Laser technique produces internal heat which is used to vaporize the outermost layer of the scar tissue. This heating process helps in the formation of new skin tissues by stimulating the removal of the hard scar tissue and neutralizing the ugly signs.
Stretch marks removal/Skin Restoration
Stretch marks or striae are often due to excessive stretching of the skin associated with rapid growth (common in puberty) or rapid weight gain (e.g. pregnancy, muscle building, or rapid gain of fat). Laser technology works effectively to improve and remove the problem of red or raised skin scars, like stretch marks. The technique of using lasers to decrease stretch marks helps to enhance the natural synthesis of your skin’s collagen. This laser procedure for stretch marks works to increase the renewed growth of the diminishing skin collagen. It helps to take-off the damaged skin tissue, heal the broken blood vessels and restore the fibers of the middle part of the skin. This process helps to "fill in" and treat the problem of the stretch marks. The laser beam aimed at these marks is extremely safe for use, as it does not penetrate the deeper organs of the body.
Another effective way to take away scar and stretch mark is through fractional radio frequency and microneedling which effectively reduces your stretch marks and rejuvenate skin. Another device exilis with monopolar radio frequency and ultrasound combination can also be combined to tackle stretch marks which along with stretch marks, also takes away your belly fat by 1 to 1½ inches per session.
