At Last! Advanced Solutions
Many of our patients come to us for help with removal of scars from the face or body. While no treatment can remove a scar completely, there are several treatments we can provide at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa in the greater Houston area that can dramatically diminish the appearance of scar tissue, improving the look and texture of a scar significantly, often enough to make the scar barely noticeable.
what we can treat
There are different types of scars, and treatment may differ among them, depending on the size, depth, color, and location of the scar, as well as the patient’s skin type and overall skin health. The most common scars that we treat in our practice include the following:
- Acne scars
- Chicken pox scars
- Hypertrophic scars
- Keloid scars
- Surgical scars
- Scars from prior accidents or injuries
The Venus Viva™ system is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses advanced radiofrequency technology to gently separate and remove the outermost layer of skin in order to diminish the appearance of scars, imperfections, or marks that have developed on that outer layer of skin. This treatment is highly effective for surface scars such as acne and chicken pox scars, as well as surgical scars in the face or body. RF Skin Resurfacing also provokes increased collagen production, so the treatment will also enhance skin tone gradually for a period of several weeks.
Chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments are also effective in gradual removal of scar tissue by slowly exfoliating the outer layers of skin at each treatment to gradually fade away the appearance of the scar.
For filling in deeply recessed scars, or areas where volume is lacking, causing a dent, Dr. Bachilo may recommend dermal fillers such as Belotero or Belafill that have been successfully used to smooth out areas where a deep scar has caused uneven skin texture and recessed areas.
Microneedling is another effective way to help gradually reduce the appearance of a scar by stimulating the production of collagen to heal and strengthen the skin at the cellular level. When enhanced with Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP) therapy, this treatment totally rejuvenates the skin and smoothes away surface imperfections and marks such as acne and chicken pox scars, as well as freckles, and other imperfections on the surface of the skin.
To treat raised scars such as kreloids and hypertrophic scars, Dr. Bachilo may recommend kenalog injections or silicone containing products.
In cases where a scar leaves a depression that requires filling in, Sculptra may be used as a dermal filler, or fat grafting may be performed using the patient’s own fatty tissue harvested from problem areas in their own body, and transferred to the treatment site by way of injections.
