The Benefits of Scar Treatment

No matter what type of scarring you have, there is a treatment available. We work closely with our patients to learn about their cosmetic goals, get to know their physical characteristics, and gain an understanding of their unique lifestyles. When you visit us for your consultation, we’ll go over all of this information before working together to develop your bespoke scar treatment plan. The benefits of our scar treatments include:

  • Reduced appearance of scars
  • Boosted self-confidence, especially when treating facial scars such
  • A smoother feel to your skin in the area of the scarring
  • Reduced pigmentation of scars
  • A more even skin tone
  • Boosted mobility when treating contracture scars
  • A reduced presence of acne scars

Am I a Candidate?

If you have scarring that affects your confidence and quality of life, we can help. We treat scars with either laser or IPL treatments depending on the depth of the scar, and will work with you during your consultation to guide you to the treatment option that will be best suited to your goals and your lifestyle. You’re likely a great candidate for scar treatment if you are in good health and don’t have any ongoing infections in the treatment area such as active acne. Scar treatment can help you address the presence of:

  • Scars from trauma
  • Surgical scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Tattoos
  • Acne scars
  • Hypertrophic scars

Claire is very knowledgeable and careful in her treatments. She is also super sweet, friendly and 100% on time - much appreciated! No one really wants to bare everything and endure the laser, but at least it is with Claire, and the best part is that the results have been very positive so far!

Scar Treatment with Erbium

Erbium laser treatments can be the best for scars that are deeper in the skin and require a more powerful treatment. The erbium laser is an ablative laser that can lower the height of scars to create a smoother skin surface. This treatment will help to reduce the redness or pigmentation in the scar so that it is closer to your natural skin tone.

Your skin will be prepped before treatment so that lower areas in the scar are protected. You may require multiple treatments, and your appointments will be spaced at intervals so that your skin has time to heal between treatments.

Scar Treatment with IPL

IPL is used to treat less severe scarring and is often used to treat acne scars. IPL stands for Intense Pulsed Light, which uses broad spectrum pulses of light to treat the skin. IPL is a great treatment for pigmentation issues associated with scars. The red pigment that is often left behind after acne has healed can be improved with IPL.

Hydroneedle with Exosomes

Did you know that growth factors can be utilized to non-surgically improve the visible presence of various types of scars? Exosome therapy provides us with a uniquely high number of benefits, and one of our favorites is its ability to address the presence of scarring. Reach out to us to set up your consultation at Saving Face in Austin to learn more.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

For both IPL and Erbium laser treatments, you may need between three and five treatments before you see the full results. These treatments cannot remove the scar, but they can create a smoother skin texture and even the pigmentation in the skin.

The number of treatments that you will need ultimately depends on how your skin heals throughout your treatments. If you are a smoker, you may be asked to quit smoking before your treatments to increase the ability of your skin to heal.

Enjoying Your Results

Your results will begin to develop over the following weeks as your initial treatment heals and your skin changes. You will notice continual improvement throughout your treatments as the scars will continue to reduce in their appearance. Depending on which treatment, the healing process will differ. Erbium laser treatments are more powerful and require more care and healing time, typically for up to two weeks after treatment. Our team will remain available to you throughout the process, to ensure that you’re loving your results and that all of your questions are answered.
