Scar Removal Q&A
What are scars?
Scars are patches of skin that close a wound. You may develop scars after you cut, scrape, or burn your skin. Scars may also form from a skin condition, such as acne or chickenpox.
Your body uses collagen fibers to close the wound, making a scar that looks different from the surrounding skin. Though most scars are flat and pale, some scars may be pink, red, or shiny.
There are also different types of scars, including:
- Raised scars — too much collagen
- Pitted scars — too little collagen
- Stretch marks — from rapid growth and stretching of the skin
If you have a scar that affects your appearance, the team at Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness can help.
What is scar removal?
Scar removal is one of the many state-of-the-art aesthetic treatments available at Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness. They use an innovative laser tool to treat your scars.
During laser scar removal, the team uses advanced laser technology that targets and breaks down the scar tissue. The energy also stimulates your skin’s natural healing process.
Over time, your body removes the destroyed scar tissue and replaces it with healthy, smooth skin that matches the surrounding skin.
In addition to scar removal, Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness also uses the innovative laser tool for skin renewal to rejuvenate your skin and restore a more youthful look.
What happens during scar removal?
Your aesthetic specialist at Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness develops personalized treatment plans for your scar removal treatment at your initial consultation. They review the details of your plan, so you know what to expect and how to prepare.
Laser scar removal at Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness is a noninvasive treatment that takes 30 minutes or less. You should feel very little discomfort during your laser scar removal.
After treatment, your skin may be red and swollen for a few days, but there’s no need for any downtime. The team at Bela Vida Med Spa and Wellness, however, recommends you avoid applying makeup or moisturizer to your treated skin for up to 24 hours.
To get the best results, you may need up to seven laser scar removal treatments. When you complete your sessions, your scar should be lighter and more even-textured.
