What causes scars to form?
Scars develop when the deepest layer of the skin (the dermis) is damaged, as often happens after surgery or due to acne. In response, the body forms fresh collagen to heal the damage—but the result is often a scar that possesses a texture and quality that is different from the surrounding tissue.
Scars can appear flat, raised, sunken or pitted. Regardless of their appearance, they’re unsightly blemishes that detract from your overall look and can have a profound impact on your self-esteem. When this occurs, surgical or non-surgical acne scar treatment in New York with Dr. Scarpidis can dramatically improve their appearance, so you can enjoy the radiant complexion you deserve.
The scar removal procedure
Most scars can be significantly reduced during just a few quick and simple treatments performed in Dr. Scarpidis’ state-of-the-art New York office, using the powerful Icon Aesthetic System. During the procedure, Dr. Scarpidis will move the Icon laser over your scar, targeting and healing the damaged skin. In this way, the energy from the laser will promote the growth of fresh skin cells to replace the scar tissue, causing your marks to disappear and beautiful, clear and undamaged skin to emerge.
Throughout your NYC acne scar removal treatment, you may experience some mild discomfort while the laser is being applied, though it should be easy to tolerate. In general, most of our patients need three to seven 30-minute sessions to produce results, though you may require more or less depending on the severity of your marks. After your session, it is normal to experience some redness and swelling in the treatment area, though it will subside naturally within a few days. As a completely non-invasive and safe procedure, you will be able to resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
