Acne Scar Treatments
Our skin is a seamless organ, like a fine piece of cloth cloaking valuable assets. Throughout our lives, we will have experiences that nip and tear at our skin, either self-inflicted, or completely out of our control. Any burn, injury, surgery or other trauma to it can cause the formation of scar tissue that can be cosmetically displeasing. A scar isn't a problem if it's small or in a location that's easy to conceal. But often you want a way to treat those scars other than hiding them under clothing. At the Medical Spa, we offer several methods that can help reduce the size and appearance of scars.
Surgical Removal or Treatment
If you've recently undergone plastic, cosmetic or other surgery that has caused your scars, it is best that you wait at least one year before making a decision about scar treatment. Many scars fade and become less noticeable over time. If fading does not occur after a year, then surgical scar revision is an option.
In the case of protruding scars such as keloids or hypertrophic, your provider may elect to use steroid injections. He or she may use this as a stand-alone treatment, or in conjunction with other treatments. Other types of injects, such as collagen injections or other "fillers", are useful for some types of pitted acne scarring.
If scars are diffusely distributed over your face or other region of skin, resurfacing the area with our fractionated CO2 laser is an excellent treatment option.
Skin Cancer Screening
Our Physician's Assistant routinely perform skin cancer screenings. If a screening reveals a suspicious growth, it can be sampled and removed with minimal or no residual blemish.
Precision Wart & Mole Removal
Cosmetically displeasing moles on the face or body can be precisely removed with a minimal residual blemish. Warts are a common skin growth that can arise at any age. We remove warts with a variety of safe and swift techniques.
