HOW IT WORKS
Our solution is tailored to your unique scars.
I. New Scars
New scars are hot, red, tender and itchy. We have a series of solutions for you, including lasers and supplemental agents to hit the fast-forward button to mature skin.
II. Mature Scars
Our combination of focal and full-field treatment options are complementary to one another. Every scar has it’s recipe for improvement. We choose from many ingredients.
III. Small Scars
Your scar is as big as it’s effect on you. You experience it from the inside-out, with all of your senses. If your scar is significant to you, it is significant to us. For smaller scars, treatment is quick and can be truly pain free. Many persons feel immediate and sometimes dramatic relief. Sequential treatments bring additional improvements. Sometimes the scar disappears altogether. Your experience, from the inside out, is what is most important.
IV. Big Scars
There is no scar too big or thick to effectively treat with the laser. We can treat part, or all of your scar. Scars that restrict motion, produce discomfort, or reveal visible disfigurement may all qualify for treatment under your health insurance policy.
