A scar forms as a result of our body mending the damage in our skin caused by an injury. Scars can be flat, raised or sunken, depending on the circumstances that caused the wound. When the skin is under great and rapid tension, scars can also appear as stretched skin marks. Whether you are looking to get rid of a surgical scar or diminish the scars and marks left by acne, we can help you! The Frax 1550™ is a non-invasive light treatment that is guaranteed to give you the best results.
What is Laser Scar Removal?
One of our cosmetic doctors will be using the Nordlys Ellipse Frax 1550 for the laser scar removal treatment. This scientifically advanced technology allows for an effective non-ablative treatment of surgical scars,acne scars and stretch skin marks on face and body.The treatment uses heat energy on the targeted areas to stimulate your body’s healing process, which will resurface the skin and remodel the scars. With this device, our skin care specialist will be able to control the width and depth of heat energy , customising the treatment based on your skin’s specific needs. This equipment also includes a cooling technology that will make your experience more comfortable.
What can you expect?
Prior to your laser scar removal treatment, you will meet with one of our cosmetic doctors for a consultation. They will discuss your treatment goals and figure out how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired cosmetic results.
Many patients will see improvement after only one session but up to 3 sessions might be required to attain maximal improvement, depending on the number and size of the scar to be treated.
It is also extremely important that you avoid sun exposure 4 weeks before and after your treatment.
During the treatment, our skin care specialist may apply numbing cream or injections. This step is not necessary but can reduce discomfort, if needed. The procedure will generally take between 20-45 minutes, depending on the treatable area.
After the treatment, you may notice some temporary side effects including redness, dryness, or feeling of light sunburn. To help with the healing process, our skin care specialist will prescribe you an ointment to apply on the treated areas. The use of cold damp cloth on your skin may also provide healing benefits.
