Scar Removal in Atlanta (Buckhead) and Valdosta, GA
The irregular texture and color of even the smallest scar can make you feel self-conscious. While scars cannot be completely removed, we do have treatments for scar reduction and scar revision. Southern Vein & Laser Center offers scar reduction to men and women in Atlanta, Valdosta and Duluth (Johns Creek), GA.
Scar Reduction Treatments
Scars develop when our bodies heal a wound by laying down new collagen fibers. Because wounds represent a potential invasion of bacteria, the body responds quickly. The result is a chaotic pattern of collagen that does not match the surrounding skin in either color or texture. Scar reduction treatments help to change the nature of your scar so that it blends better with your other skin, which makes the scar less obvious.
Benefits of Scar Revision Treatments
Scar treatment helps with:
- Scars that are darker or lighter than other skin
- Smoother or more textured that nearby skin
- Scars that are positioned in obvious locations, such as the face or abdomen
Scar revision can be performed on stretch marks as well as scars that result from trauma, wounds and surgery.
How Scar Reduction Treatments Work
Southern Vein & Laser Center uses several innovative technologies for scar reduction treatments. We can tailor our treatment to each patient using the following technologies:
- Icon™, which treats several cosmetic concerns, so scar revision can be easily incorporated into other procedures.
- Vivace™ RF Microneedling, which is a microneedling treatment that promotes the development of new collagen.
- The EVO Light™ series is used to treat atrophic acne scars in addition to other skin issues.
- Juliet® is most commonly used for vaginal rejuvenation but can also treat scars of varying severeness.
What to Expect from Scar Revision Treatments
If you have laser scar revision with the Icon™ system, the procedure involves the application of light energy to the scar. Each application may feel like a slight pinch to the skin. You may see some improvement immediately after the procedure, but full results take time to allow the new collagen to form.
Vivace™ RF Microneedling is another popular scar treatment for our patients. The tool used for the procedure has several tiny needles that penetrate the skin to form micro-channels. Like laser scar reduction, this treatment also stimulates collagen production, and it can be combined with PRP therapy for the added benefit of growth factor proteins.
