No one likes scars! Whether you get them from acne, an injury, sun damage, surgery or something else, scars can make us insecure about our appearance. Don’t be! Scars are a natural part of our body’s healing process, so they’re a good thing. And here at New England Skin Center, our talented medical providers can administer a range of non-surgical treatments that remarkably minimize their appearance.
Read below to see what we mean:
Good for: dark spots
Chemical peels are quick, common procedures that get rid of dead skin cells and unveil healthy, untouched skin. They are safe for all skin types, and the more you do them, the clearer (and younger) your face will look! You can expect mild redness, irritation and peeling for a few days, and a glowing, healthy complexion within a week.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photofacial
Good for: age spots + broken capillaries
In 45 minutes or less, IPL can treat your skin with—wait for it—“intense pulsed light” that destroys excessive melanin-producing cells and pigment areas and reduces age spots and scars. Expect your skin to be slightly red or puffy immediately after the procedure, but then watch as that photo-ready glow develops over three months. To keep your results, wear sunscreen!
Good for: acne + traumatic scars
This non-surgical procedure uses the Venus Versa™ laser to remove scarred or damaged skin and uncover tighter, younger looking skin. Skin resurfacing takes no more than 45 minutes, is safe for all skin types and requires no downtime for recovery. Don’t expect to see results immediately. Collagen takes time to develop—you’ll see a gradual improvement in your skin from 10 weeks to six months post treatment.
Good for: acne scars
It’s not surprising that derma fillers (or “injectables”) have become the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment on the market. Fillers like Restylane, Sculptra, Botox and more can all be used to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, restore fullness in your face and, yes, reduce scarring. Some fillers even work to stimulate natural collagen production and help your skin heal on its own. The best part? Most are quick, offer immediate results and require no downtime! Based on your condition and preferences, a qualified medical professional (like one at New England Skin Center!) will help you find the filler that’s right for you.
Good for: acne scars + sun damage
The trendy HydraFacial can hydrate skin and remove dead skin cells in just 30 minutes! Perfect for all skin types, it requires zero recovery time and immediately gives your skin that young, radiant glow. Results are temporary, however, so get them frequently to keep your skin looking its absolute best.
