Scars are a very common aesthetic concern for both men and women. Whether from an injury, surgery, or pregnancy, scars can change the way we feel about our appearance. Gentle Revive in Lindon, Utah, provides patients with safe, gentle, and effective scar removal.
PicoSure is an innovative light-based treatment that, unlike traditional laser treatments, doesn’t rely on heat to erase the appearance of scars. Less heat means less damage to the skin, allowing PicoSure treatments to be highly effective without the pain and irritation associated with traditional scar removal methods. The treatments are highly customizable and can be used to treat a variety of pigment concerns, including C-section scars, acne scars, stretch marks, and dark spots. PicoSure treatments help lighten and reduce the appearance of scars by gently disrupting the pigment of the skin. The treatment uses a specialized lens and laser that rapidly destroy the appearance of pigment without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. PicoSure treatments have the added benefit of activating the body’s natural collagen and elastin production, which improves elasticity and overall appearance of the treatment area. With PicoSure treatments, patients can address their unwanted scars and rejuvenate their skin’s appearance in the process. There is no downtime with this treatment, and you can immediately return to your normal daily activities, even applying moisturizers, sunscreens, and makeup with no adverse effects.
Icon laser treatments use fractional laser technology to break down scar tissue and trigger the body's natural healing process. It is a quick and easy treatment that really works, and gives remarkable results on any skin type. As the body heals, the appearance of your scars begin to fade, revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin with less scarring. The laser is not ablative, meaning it doesn't break the surface of your skin. As soon as any redness or swelling goes away, you will be able to resume your routine.
Scar Removal FAQs
What does 'fractional' mean?
This means that it causes micro injuries to a relatively small fraction of the skin at a time. If you think of where the laser comes out as a stamp with tiny needles on it, that is kind of the arrangement of the energy as it comes out of the laser. Heat is put into the skin as tiny columns that stimulate growth of new cells. These columns of new tissue work together in repairing the appearance and function of the skin.
Are laser scar removal treatments painful?
PicoSure and Icon laser treatments are designed for comfort and although you should expect to have redness afterward, they are quite tolerable. If you have low pain tolerance, we have several methods to make it a pain free experience. To find the scar removal method that is right for you, book an appointment by phone or online today.
