How to Reduce the Appearance of Unwanted Scars

Why Do We Scar?

Scars are formed through our body’s natural healing process. Once the tissue is damaged a protein known as collagen is released; this collagen then builds up where the tissue has been wounded. This ultimately helps strengthen and heal the injury, and the brand-new skin has a different texture and overall quality.

What Treatments Will Help Reduce a Scars Appearance?

Here at Heights Aesthetic Laser Center, we try to provide procedures and treatments that help you look and feel your absolute best. Scars can be frustrating and hard to deal with, so when it comes to unwanted scars, here is what might be right for you.

The two treatments that are great when it comes to reducing the appearance of your unwanted scars would be:

These treatments can be performed on their own or one after another in a single session.

What is RF Microneedling?

This treatment delivers radiofrequency (RF) microneedling. During treatment, your provider uses the Genius device to microneedle your skin, creating tiny pinpricks on the surface of your skin. Those pinpricks help to break up scar tissue while stimulating your body’s healing processes. 

The Genius device also directs RF energy into your skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These are the proteins that keep your skin tight, smooth, and elastic. Together, the radiofrequency and microneedling help to improve your skin’s tone and texture, minimizing the appearance of your scar(s).
