While scars make us individuals, the good news is there are a number of ways to try to minimize the appearance of such distinguishing characteristics. A few effective procedures that you can try to see how they work for you include laser skin resurfacing, radiofrequency microneedling, and minor skin excisions.
What type of scar do I have?
At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we are first want to determine what type of scar you have. While a clinical diagnosis is ultimately important, below is a brief overview to help you determine what kind of scar you likely have. Here are some different types of scars include:
Keloid Scars are the result of overcompensation during the healing process. The body produces too much scar tissue, resulting in a scar that protrudes outward.
When the skin is burned, the result is a contracture scar. These look like the skin has been pulled tight, and they often hinder movement due to tightened tissues.
Hypertrophic scars are raised, red scars. Hypertrophic scars are caused by excessive collagen, which contributes to the scar rising above the skin level.
Acne scars come after severe acne has disappeared. These create a dimpled or pitted look in the skin. Our practitioners are experienced in acne scar treatment.
