Over our lifetime, our skin endures a lot- sometimes we scratch or tear our skin, but other more serious injuries or medical procedures can leave us with larger, more visible scars over our bodies. When these scars cover more visible sections of our skin, they can be embarrassing or draw unwanted attention, and during shorts season, many elect to suffer through the heat with long clothes to cover their skin. But if you have scarring that you want to remove, there are treatments available to remove the appearance of scars on the skin!
Our treatments for scarring include:
The VBeam® Perfecta treatment uses bursts of light which are then absorbed by the blood vessels or melanin-pigmented areas in the skin. Because this treatment gently reduces discoloration and marks on the skin, this treatment is ideal to remove scars on the skin. Dr. Walia uses this treatment on the neck, hands, and other areas of the body.
The Genius™ treatment uses innovative technology to deliver thermal energy deep into the skin to stimulate the growth of new collagen and elastin. This growth helps to tighten and remodel the skin in targeted areas without impacting healthy skin around the area with scarring. This treatment is also customizable for each patient’s needs, as well as to perfectly address the specific thickness of the area being treated.
LaseMD™ is a treatment that can address uneven skin tones left behind by scarring to reduce the appearance of scars on the skin. This treatment creates micro-channels with minimal disruption to the top layer of skin which are then used to deliver ampoules of the treatment drug to the targeted area of skin. It is absorbed by the skin to even skin tone on the face, but also the chest, neck, hands, and other areas of the body.
The TotalSkin Solution™ combines both the LaseMD™ and Genius™ treatments to rejuvenate your skin and reduce textural irregularities and discoloration from scarring. The Genius™ builds the foundation of the treatment and is followed by the LaseMD™ to finish the treatment by reducing the irregularities of the skin. Both treatments are performed in-office on the same day, one right after the other.
These laser skin treatments are designed to target uneven textured skin and discoloration, making them ideal to treat scarring, and because they are gentle on the skin, they can be applied to every area of the body from your face to your ankles and feet.
During your initial consultation with our laser skin specialist, Dr. Walia, she will assess your scarring and recommend the perfect treatment or combination of treatments to meet your aesthetic and health goals.
Dr. Walia’s husband is a member of the armed forces, and because of this, she is motivated to give back to those currently serving and veterans. Those with scarring caused by military service are perfect candidates for laser skin care, and Dr. Walia offers veterans and service members a free consultation when they bring in their military ID to their appointment. We also accept military insurance for our treatments.
