Expertise and Caring in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine.
Scars, acne lesions and stretch marks can be softened and diminished non-invasively, using one or a combination of the following: microdermabrasion, a newer technique called carbossitherapy, or a CO2 fractional laser.
Microdermabrasion sloughs off the skin's outer layer, exposing a fresh layer of smooth skin. It uses a suction tipped wand with fine diamond grit to clear pores and exfoliate the skin. This leaves the skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated.* Microdermabrasion can be done as a standalone treatment, or it can be done to prepare skin for chemical peels or laser procedures.
Carbossitherapy breaks down and stretches the collagen bonds in a scar that tethers it to the skin. These collagen bonds cause the scar's indented appearance, so carbossi can actually change the scar’s appearance right from the first treatment.* Carbossi also improves blood flow and oxygen levels in the skin, promoting healing.
A CO2 fractional laser treatment is designed to resurface your skin, or give you a light laser peel while reducing wrinkles, stimulating collagen, tightening skin, and reducing sun damage.* This laser has approximately seven to ten days down time depending on the treatment.
Chemical peels and facials are a no-downtime option that require 6-12 treatments and offer overall skin rejuvenation at the same time.* Dermal rollers are sold here that help reduce scarring with regular at-home use. There’s no associated downtime, and they also improve absorption of skincare products substantially. They’re great for someone who wants to complement a treatment or who cannot come in for a procedure.
