Cosmetic Scar Treatment

Cosmetic Scar Treatment

Scar tissue is the result of the body’s normal healing process, but scars can be cosmetic concerns for both men and women. The good news is that several nonsurgical treatment options offered by dermatologists can significantly improve or even eliminate the appearance of scars. In order to know which cosmetic treatment option is best for you, the type and size of your scars will need to be evaluated. Treatments vary based on several factors.

Indented Scars

Indented scars that are the result of acne can be treated with injectable dermal fillers, such as Juvéderm® or Restylane®. Both Juvéderm® and Restylane® involve injecting hyaluronic acid into the treatment areas. Hyaluronic acid is a glycosaminoglycan (a sugar-based compound) that is naturally produced in the body to keep skin healthy and moisturized. The injection of dermal fillers is a minimally invasive procedure that takes approximately 20 minutes with no downtime, although the filler will need to be readministered 6 to 12 months after the initial treatment.


Pigmented Scars

If a scar is pigmented, dermatologists can utilize specialized in-office laser treatments to reduce their visibility. At the Art of Dermatology, Dr. Jessica Krant treats pigmented scars, such as from acne, with either Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) or the PicoSure® laser technology. PicoSure® is an FDA-approved aesthetic picosecond laser that is the first of its kind. It improves the appearance of scars by using a gentle pressure instead of the damaging heat that is necessary with traditional lasers. Treating scars with the PicoSure® laser is safe and effective, with no need for downtime. Multiple laser treatment sessions are typically required to see optimal results, but the results can be permanent or very long-lasting.
