Unwanted scars can be a troubling skin condition for men and women of all ages. Dark, raised scars can have a negative impact on every aspect of a patient’s life from social situations to confidence at work. Restore your self-image and see dramatic, game-changing results with a simple in-office visit.
Capital Laser & Skin Care offers several minimally-invasive options for patients seeking scar reduction. With various laser treatments, we’re able to minimize the appearance of scars and improve the overall tone and texture of the skin. Whether you’d like to combat stubborn acne scars or scars caused by a past injury, we’re here to help.
Fraxel® Dual is a laser treatment that creates tiny micro-injuries within the skin. The process triggers your body’s natural self-healing and speeds collagen regeneration to break down pigmented lesions. Treatments are generally quick, easy, and require minimal downtime for scar removal.
Fraxel® is a highly customizable procedure that can have results that are as subtle or as dramatic as you’d like. Minor scars can be addressed with just 1-2 Fraxel® treatments, while deeper, more complex scars may need a series of treatments to achieve an optimal outcome.
HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser
HALO™ is a unique laser treatment that utilizes both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. Patients are able to achieve deep dermal rejuvenation as well as superficial resurfacing in a single treatment. HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser effectively flattens and reduces scar pigmentation simultaneously.
Pigmented scars will initially darken after treatment and gradually fade over the course of several days. Patients should see significant scar reduction in several weeks. Several treatments may be needed to achieve your desired outcome. However, scar reduction is typically long-lasting.
What’s Right for Me?
The best way to determine what’s right for you is through an in-person consultation. Depending on your individual needs, your Board-certified dermatologist may suggest one of the above laser treatments. Patients that would like to combat moderate to severe acne scars may also benefit from regular microneedling treatments to improve overall tone and texture.
I went to Capital Skin Care to get a procedure done. The staff was ultra-professional, very nice, and did an amazing job. They fixed my issue right away and followed up to make sure everything went fine after the procedure. The offices are beautiful too. I was very happy and would absolutely come back and recommend it to others.
