What is a scar? "A scar is the visible part of a lesion in the dermis after tissue repair, after an incision during surgery or as a result of an injury.... Scar tissue is not identical to the tissue it replaces and is usually of inferior functional quality."
A scar can be very annoying, especially on the face. From now on, it is possible to treat these scars very efficiently with the very latest aesthetic technologies. There are many types of scars (pigmented, depigmented, deep, embossed...) that can result from an injury, burns or acne. For acne scars, treatment can even be considered during the active period.
What Skincenters offers
What Skincenters offers
A scar can be treated in multiple ways and thus using different devices. Depending on various factors, we will consider which treatment option is best in your case.
At Skincenters, the following two technologies are mainly chosen:
This technique consists of destroying the damaged fibers in order to then stimulate the production of collagen in the scar, thus making the scar smoother and less thick.
In laser treatment, a combination of Nd:YAP and an Er:YAG laser is often chosen. By using the two different lasers, we can stimulate collagen production in depth as well as more superficially.
Of course, we at Skincenters have other technologies that can also be used depending on the exact indication. We always provide a customized treatment plan in which often products for home use are recommended for support.
Preparation and aftercare
It is not recommended to perform the treatment when you are tanned by sun, self-tanner, spray tan or tanning bed.
The treatment should not be performed during pregnancy and/or period of breastfeeding.
After scar treatment, the skin may be somewhat sensitive and/or red.
We also use a specially developed cream, Laserat, at Skincenters. This cream was developed by a pharmaceutical company and is specifically for after laser treatment. Laserat provides immediate cooling and faster recovery after treatment.
Depending on which treatment is opted for, the price is different.
Under "Rates" you will find the starting prices.
For a customized treatment plan and exact price per session, you can always book a FREE intake consultation at one of our centers.
Treatment is performed in 3 to 6 sessions, depending on the type of scar and the skin's response to treatment.
A treatment lasts an average of 30 to 60 minutes.
