Why Remove Scars?
Scars are a result of injury or trauma to the skin. They vary based on skin type, the nature of the injury, and your genetics. There are several different types of scars, such as dents in the skin like acne scars, raised scars from surgeries or cuts, or even bumpy scars such as stretch marks. Some scars can be discolored or pigmented as well.
Depending on their size, color, and location on the body, scars can have a major impact on your mental health, creating anxiety and low self-esteem. Scars are a diverse type of skin concern that require treatment based on your skin type, the area of the body, and other factors unique to you.
“Love the team at Kingsway! Everyone is friendly and professional. Mainly wanted to improve appearance of scars and large pores, I started going to the cosmetic side and they really helped me chose the right treatments and were up front and realistic about how it could help my skin’s appearance. I knew when I started that I’ll never have smooth porcelain skin, but I’ve seen some noticeable improvements and I’m really satisfied with the results.”
Our Scar Removal Treatments
Our experts must be able to see and feel the scar in question to be able to determine which treatment will work best for you. At Kingsway, we’re pleased to offer the latest and most reliable dermatology solutions available, allowing us to tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs.
Microneedling/Collagen Induction Therapies
Microneedling, or collagen induction therapy, creates tiny wounds in the skin, triggering the body’s collagen production and reducing the appearance of scars.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP injections use platelets from the patient’s own blood, delivered back into the treatment area, to promote the growth of new tissue.
Subcision raises depressed scars by releasing them from the underlying tissue. On the other hand, excision removes raised scar tissue to smooth out the skin.
Dermal fillers can be used as an acne scar treatment, or for other depressed scars, as they are used to fill in indents in the skin to smooth out its appearance.
A laser treatment for scars, laser skin resurfacing uses controlled heat to stimulate the body’s collagen production and improve the skin’s appearance.
IPL Photofacial uses broad spectrum light to eliminate damage to the skin and address many types of skin damage, including scars.
