Scars form when the dermis (deep, thick layer of skin) is damaged. The body forms new collagen fibers (a naturally occurring protein in the body) to mend the damage, resulting in a scar. Most scars are flat and pale. However, in cases when the body produces too much collagen, scars can be raised.
Thankfully, there are several non-invasive and non-surgical scar removal treatment options to help reduce and remove scars from the body. Some of the more popular treatment options for scars are listed below.
- Chemical peels:
There are various types of chemical peels that can help reduce the appearance of scars. A chemical peel involves the chemical exfoliation of the layer of damaged skin. The peel then reveals the healthier layer of skin underneath.
- Vivace Microneedling:
This procedure involves the use of Vivace radio frequency microneedling to help brighten the skin and reduce and eliminate scars.
Similar to Vivace, this technology helps in fighting the appearance of scars. In this technique, microneedles are used to help eliminate the skin imperfections such as scars by helping promote collagen production.
Injuries and accidents can happen with anyone and anytime. The scars they leave have a huge impact on your self confidence.
