Scars are a natural byproduct of healed wounds. When the skin is injured, the skin acts to quickly close the wound and stop bleeding. During this rapid response, the skin often creates too much or too little collagen and melanin cells. This can cause the skin texture to be uneven or discolored. Scars are perfectly natural, but many people are insecure about them if they’re on the face or visible parts of the body. Luckily, here at AFYA we have a number of treatments that can help reduce the appearance of scars!
IPL Photo Rejuvenation
IPL is known as the anti-aging treatment because it reduces discoloration on the skin, tightens skin, and improved overall complexion. But it is already a good treatment for scar reduction, especially acne scars. It can also address discolored scars as well!
Fractora uses a needling device to create micro-channels of heat in the skin, which pushes the body to naturally tap into its healing mechanism and increase collagen production. It can destroy damaged skin tissue and replace it with better functioning skin cells, which makes it a great treatment for acne and body scars!
Eclipse MicroPen microneedling increases collagen production in the sin, which reduces fine lines, hyper-pigmentation, and stretch marks, but also acne scars! Prior to this treatment, the skin will be cleansed and exfoliated, which removed dead skin cells and allows microneedling to be most effective.
Chemical peels are a great way to exfoliate the skin, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, acne, enlarged pores, dull complexions, and scars! Chemical peels can be customized to address whatever issue you’re trying to fix. Come in for a complimentary consultation to see how chemical peels can help reduce the appearance of your scars!
