Whether your facial scar is from acne or an incident you’d like to forget, it’s always right there in front of you in the mirror. The worst part about a scar on your face is that you can’t really hide it like you can with scars on your body. Instead, it’s always visible for a new person to question or stare at.
Fortunately, you don’t have to live with the scar on your face forever. New and exciting technology can treat your facial scars by significantly diminishing their appearance. Let’s take a look at a few of the best scar removal options for your face now. Laser Treatments
Using beams of focused light, some lasers employ heat energy to diminish your facial scar without harming the surrounding area. It’s an incredibly safe and effective way to remove the appearance of scars on your face. The laser procedure is customized to fit your specific needs and may improve the scar’s color and texture. To get the best scar removal results, multiple lasers usually have to be used. Our practice uses IPL, Total FX, Active FX or Pixel laser therapy, depending on your skin type and the type of scar you have on your face.
Scar Injection Therapy
To better treat facial scars with a raised skin texture, Dr. Dayan developed a new therapeutic treatment that is exclusive to our practice. This injection therapy uses a unique combination of Botox, K10 and 5FU in a defined ratio. Each month, the formula is injected into into your scar to decrease inflammation. Only three treatments are typically needed to diminish the scar and leave it dormant.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Skin Treatment
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy uses an intense flash of light to precisely penetrate the deeper layer of the skin underneath the scar where your collagen is found. This stimulates new collagen to form in the skin, reducing the abnormal appearance of your facial scar with a natural method. After several IPL treatments, you should have a virtually even skin tone. You’ll typically need four to six treatments for the best results.
Microneedling Skin Therapy
If you’re looking for the shortest recovery period possible after your scar treatment, Microneedling Skin Therapy may be the best option for you. During this process, a dermapen is used to diminish the appearance of the scar on your face and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin by stimulating new collagen growth depending on the size of the scar. The treatment typically takes 30 minutes or less. Best of all, patients can usually return to work and their normal routine within 24 to 48 hours. We recommend at least four to six treatments for the best scar results. Each of these treatments should be spaced apart by four weeks.
We hope this information helps you to decide if and how you will improve of the scar on your face. If you need more information about any of these treatments, feel free to contact us. We would love to help you achieve an appearance you’re proud of.
