Geometric Line Closure:
This approach is vital in making many scars look better. Usually the scars that find their way into our office are scars that have a noticeable pattern. Any straight line that is longer than 0.7cm will be seen as a pattern. The randomness of the geometric line pattern is what hides the scars better in addition to breaking up the possibilities of the contraction that can occur with a straight line scar. We will show you how we're going to pattern your scar revision. The other advantage that we think we have in scar revision treatment techniques is the use of special suturing that prevents the scar from widening and the type of closure that we do further helps. So these elements are going to be explained to you and how it will benefit your eventual scar appearance. After proper healing and as early as 4 to 8 weeks you can be eligible for laser resurfacing that can further improve your scar appearance. Just like it was done for the patient in the before and afters at the top of this page, we will do everything we can to reduce the appearance of your scar.
After the geometric line closure, we then can do laser resurfacing along with other resurfacing techniques (dermabrasion, dermasanding) to further improve the appearance of your scar. The way that it does this is by causing the skin to randomly heal together and through this it can blend the scar that is at the superficial layer. There are many different ways to improve your scar through laser resurfacing using either traditional resurfacing methods, cutting the scar down to the level of the skin, or by trying to raise it up by causing the skin to build up. We will go over all the different techniques to show you how we are going to improve your scars.
Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment - Treat Ice Pick Scars, Box Car Scars, Elevated Scars, Depressed Scars, Rolling Scars, and Red, Pigmented scars with our 5-7 step process done in about 2 hours:
The Acne Scar Vitalizer Treatment is a procedure that was developed through greater than 12 years of clinical experience. It is a process that uses five to seven steps to treat acne scars from multiple different levels. The central focus of the acne disease process is located in the hair follicle. Because the hair follicle extends deep into the layers of the epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous tissue acne can affect all layers of the skin. Utilizing only superficial techniques such as laser resurfacing will not treat all of the scars from acne. A multi-layered approach like the acne scar vitalizer treatment will get the best results. Through this technique we will treat each and every scar on your face to try to get the best results available today.
