Frequently Asked Questions
Scar treatments are a type of medical procedure that are used to improve the appearance of scars.
There are a variety of different scar treatments, including surgery, laser therapy, and topical treatments.
Surgery is the most invasive treatment and is used when the scar is large or affecting a functional area.
Laser therapy and topical treatments are less invasive and can be used for scars of any size.
This InMode system (Microsponge® System) works by sending a stream of tiny gas-filled microspheres to the treatment site.
Upon contact with the skin, these microsponges instantly inflate and begin to create thousands of microscopic wounds in the outer layer of skin.
This induces collagen production and initiates a healing cascade that produces a tightening effect on the skin.
Invasive scar treatments are those that require making an incision in the skin in order to treat the scar.
There are two main types of invasive treatments: surgery and injections.
Surgery For Scar Treatment
Surgery is the more traditional invasive treatment for scars. It involves making an incision in the skin, removing the scar tissue, and stitching up the wound.
This treatment is relatively effective, but it has some disadvantages.
First, it can be expensive.
Second, it can be painful.
Third, it takes a long time to heal and sometimes leads to complications during the healing process.
Fourth, the surgery site will inevitably lead to some scarring in itself.
Fifth, it requires a certain level of surgical expertise, so not everyone who wants surgery to remove their scar may be able to have it done.
Injections For Scar Treatment
Injections are a newer type of treatment for scars that involve injecting a substance into the scar tissue in order to make it less visible.
Injection fillers work, in part, by filling in the depressed area around the scar. This not only makes the scar look less noticeable, but it can also help to make it less painful and tender.
There are different types of fillers available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks.
If you want to know for sure which filler injection will give you the desired results, you should talk to a professional at Mirror Mirror Med Spa.
Your doctor will guide you toward the treatment option that is ideal for you.
A less invasive treatment is one that requires a smaller incision (or no incision) and results in less tissue damage.
There are many reasons why less invasive treatments are often recommended over traditional surgery.
For one, less invasive procedures typically have a shorter recovery time than surgery. They also tend to be less expensive and cause less pain.
Additionally, many patients prefer less invasive treatments because they leave fewer scars.
Some common examples of less invasive surgeries for scar treatment are laser resurfacing, topical therapies, dermabrasion, and microneedling.
Laser skin resurfacing is a cosmetic procedure that uses a laser to improve the appearance of your skin. The laser removes thin layers of skin and reduces wrinkles, scars, sun damage, and other blemishes.
The procedure is usually done in a doctor’s office.
You may need local anesthesia to numb the area where the laser will be used.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
You may have some bruising and swelling after the surgery. These symptoms should go away in a few days.
Ideal candidates cover a broad range and include people of all skin types who have various conditions.
We have a wide range of treatment options that can address your specific goals.
There are several, although which treatment you receive depends on your consultation.
You may need one treatment or a combination of treatments in order to achieve your goals.
Types of treatments include laser resurfacing, topical therapies, dermabrasion, filler, and microneedling.
We can lift, lighten, fill, tighten, smooth, soften, and rejuvenate a patient’s aesthetic features with little to no recovery time involved.
What Is Laser Resurfacing and How Can It Help Treat Scars?
Laser resurfacing is a medical procedure that uses laser energy to improve the appearance of your skin. It can be used to treat scars, sun damage, and wrinkles.
During laser resurfacing, a laser is used to remove unwanted tissue and pigment. This can help reduce the appearance of scars.
Laser resurfacing is also a good option for treating old or stubborn scars and is a safe and effective treatment.
What Is Dermabrasion and How Can It Help Treat Scars?
Dermabrasion uses a rotating brush to gently remove the very top layer of your skin.
It’s a technique that is commonly used to treat scars but can also be used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, age spots, and other skin blemishes.
Dermabrasion can be performed in a doctor’s office or clinic.
The procedure begins with the application of numbing cream on the skin.
Once the skin is numb, the doctor uses a rotating brush to remove the top layer of skin.
This may cause some discomfort, but it is typically not very painful. The doctor will then apply something to soothe the area and send you home.
You should expect some swelling and redness in the days following a dermabrasion treatment. The area may also be slightly sore.
These symptoms disappear after a few days.
What Is Microneedling and How Can It Help Treat Scars?
Microneedling is a minimally invasive procedure that uses tiny needles to create controlled wounds in the skin. This stimulates the body’s natural healing process and helps to improve the appearance of scars.
Microneedling can be used on all types of scars, including those caused by acne, surgery, or injury.
The microneedling process involves a device that has rows of tiny needles. These are applied to the skin in a controlled pattern.
The needles create tiny wounds, which trigger the body’s healing response. This prompts the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.
These fibers help improve the appearance of scars by making them less visible and smoother.
Microneedling is a safe and effective treatment for scars. It can be used on all types of scars, including those that are old or new, raised or flat, red, brown or black.
What Are Topical Therapies and How Can They Help Treat Scars?
Topical therapies are treatments that are applied to the skin.
There are a variety of different topical therapies that can be used to help treat scars.
Some of the most common topical therapies include:
1. Creams and Ointments: Creams and ointments are often used to help soften and moisturize the skin. This can help reduce the appearance of scars.
2. Gels: Gels can be used to provide cooling and soothing relief to the skin. This can help reduce inflammation and swelling around scars.
3. Silicone Sheets or Pads: Silicone sheets or pads can be used to help flatten and smooth out scars. This can make them less visible.
4. Tape: Tape can be used to pull at the skin, helping to stretch it out and improve the appearance of scars over time.
Topical treatments are often used in conjunction with other treatment types.
Used as a stand-alone treatment, a few people find that they work well, while many others do not see any improvement.
It is important to consult with an expert at Mirror Mirror Med Spa if you want to be sure what treatment combination works best for you.
Your doctor will help you choose the best treatment for your individual situation.
