Scars are proof of survival, usually a remnant from trauma to the skin or recovery from a surgical procedure. However, many people consider them unsightly, as scars are often noticeable due to their different textures and colors. Aesthetx is proud to provide some of the latest laser and light technology for nonsurgical scar revision: Sciton’s Broadband Light, ProFractional Laser, microneedling, and silicone scar therapy.
BroadBand Light (BBL) for Scar Revision
BBL uses photothermal energy that reaches into deeper layers of skin, heating it in a way that triggers the skin’s healing response. Photothermal energy is incredibly intense light, and BBL notably uses photothermal energy in a wide range of wavelengths that can reach different skin depths and treat different conditions. BBL helps scar revision by activating the body’s regenerative powers so that healthier skin cells gradually replace damaged skin cells, leading to the gradual reduction of the size or redness of scarring.
ProFractional Laser for Scar Revision
By only treating small fractions of the skin, this “fractional laser” offers an efficient treatment with a short recovery period. Profractional Lasers create little microscopic channels in your skin, while leaving surrounding tissue untouched. By affecting only a small part of the skin, the recovery period is much faster. Aesthetx is proud to offer one of the most powerful nonsurgical treatments for scar revision.
Microneedling for Scar Revision
This new nonsurgical treatment is on the rise as an effective treatment for scar revision; using incredibly fine needles, Aesthetx can create incredibly small punctures in the skin that eventually lead to the reduction in the appearance of scars. By creating these little “micro-injuries,” the body activates the regenerative processes for the skin, allowing the scar tissue to be replaced by healthier, newer skin cells.
Silicone Scar Therapy
Aesthetx offers topical silicone gel for scar revision. Silicone gel has been shown to flatten and soften scar tissue by hydrating the skin and decreasing the production of collagen in the scar tissue. By reducing the production of collagen in the skin, Silicone prevents the scar from becoming too thick or prominent.
