Scar Treatment

Research has shown that the non - ablative (does not break the skin) N-Lite laser as well as stimulating collagen production has an anti - inflammatory effect resulting in the softening of scar tissue including the improvement of stretch marks. The number of treatments necessary depends on the type of lesion and each individual's collagen and wound healing response. Usually at least six treatments are needed for many of the scars that we see.
Scar Classification
Proper scar classification is important as differences in clinical scar characteristics determine the treatment protocol. Scar colour, texture, and morphology, as well as previously applied treatments, will affect the laser parameters and number of treatments required for optimal improvement.
Hypertrophic scars
Hypertrophic scars are raised, firm, erythematous scars formed as the result of overzealous collagen synthesis coupled with limited collagen lysis during the remodeling phase of wound healing. The result is the formation of thick, hyalinized collagen bundles consisting of fibroblasts and fibrocytes. Despite the obvious tissue proliferation, hypertrophic scars remain within the confines of the original integument injury and may regress with time.
Keloid scars
Keloids are raised, reddish-purple, nodular scars which, upon palpation, are firmer than hypertrophic scars. Keloids exhibit a prolonged, proliferative phase resulting in the appearance of thick hyalinized collagen bundles similar to those produced by hypertrophic scars, but extend beyond the margins of the inciting wound and do not regress over time. Although they can be seen in all skin types, keloids appear most frequently in patients with darker skin tones and are related to an inherited metabolic alteration in collagen.
Atrophic scars
Atrophic scars are dermal depressions most commonly caused by collagen destruction during the course of an inflammatory skin disease such as cystic acne or varicella. Scarring after inflammatory or cystic acne can manifest as atrophic, saucerized, ice pick, or boxcar scars. While ice pick and boxcar scars respond best to dermal filler augmentation or punch excision( treatments which we do not offer in our clinic), atrophic scars usually respond well to laser therapy
