Small, superficial scars are common for most people but some have more severe scars that can cause individuals to be self-conscious.
Most scars can be treated with laser procedures, keloid scars are the exception. Most simply stated, keloid scars are scars that grow beyond the original boundaries of the wound. This type of scarring responds best to non-laser treatments and should not be treated with lasers.
Scarring is initially best treated with a combination MicroLaser Peel and Profraction and skin health is maintained after laser treatment with Alastin or Skinmedica products.
For those anticipating a new scar due to upcoming surgery or a wound repair, SkinMedica has developed a totally botanical Scar Recovery Complex that reduces thickening and discoloration typically developed. Used twice daily as soon as stitches are removed for a period of 6 - 12 months smooths the scar surface and lightens hyper pigment leaving the scar less visible!

The MicroLaser Peel/Profraction
The MicroLaser Peel/Profraction is a computer guided laser resurfacing procedure. With our top of the line Sciton Laser, Dr. Madsen can resurface your skin by beginning with a MicroLaser Peel to eliminate the deep marginated scars and is followed by Profraction to reach the deep dermal layer of the skin with thousands of tiny channels to stimulate collagen. This new collagen will thicken the skin to bring about improved fullness and smooth texture. The MicroLaser Peel/Profraction procedure will greatly improve, if not eliminate scarring. This procedure requires healing time of 7 - 10 days.
At New Image Laser Skin Center we have experienced that a good skincare regimen will enhance the healing of the skin and, with continued use, allow for the most healthy and beautiful skin.
