Scars caused by surgery or traumatic injury are usually permanent and can cause a great deal of embarrassment, with some people going to great lengths to cover them up. The good news is we offer a number of treatments here at THE Medical Spa which can dramatically improve the appearance of scars.
The scar treatment you opt for will depend on the size, location and character of your scar. It will also depend on your reasons for having treatment in the first place, i.e. is your scar causing you distress because of its appearance or is it causing you an actual physical problem.
IPL skin resurfacing: The revolutionary IPL (Intense Pulse Light Ultrasonic Technology) is particularly effective in the treatment of acne scarring and pitted scars. Intense Pulsed Light is a technology where light is converted into heat energy.Treatments are like a very powerful camera flash lamp being held against your skin.The selected light waves target chromophores (color pigments) such as melanin in brown spots and freckles; and such as haemoglobin in broken or diffused blood vessels. The light waves can also target specific protein molecules in acne bacteria and in collagen. IPL treats all conditions without disruption to the skin’s surface.stimulating the growth of healthy new skin.
