About the Procedure
The laser’s energy activates the skin under the scar stimulating the production of collagen which thickens the skin under the scar until it looks a lot like the surrounding normal skin. Our current laser technology has proven to improve or eliminate red or raised scars. Studies also show that this method creates a 50% improvement in the appearance of stretch marks by the 6 month check-up.
Another treatment for scars is the use of silicone gels such as Scarfade™ and Laserfade™ which minimize the look of scars as they act as an effective moisturizer to allow skin to go back to its normal texture and color. These gels stay active while under makeup and are easily tolerated by children. In a consultation with Dr. Gregory Antoniak’s medical aestheticians, they will determine the best option for you to achieve the results you desire.
