Condition – Scars (acne, post-trauma, …)

After surgery, a cesarean section, a burn, or a skin condition (acne, chicken pox, etc.), there may be some injuries to the skin. The healing process will result in the formation of a scar that is initially more red in appearance. Some will become white, flat, and soft and fade easily over time, while others may be more difficult and remain visible. There are two types of scars: keloid scars, which are dilated and can spread, and hypertrophic scars, which are swollen and red and can be itchy. Scars differ from one person to another and various factors influence their evolution and the speed of their healing: age, nutritional status, skin pigmentation, scar location, infections and blood circulation.

It is important to know that early intervention on scars is recommended to promote better healing of the scars. Scars can cause psychological trauma by taking months to fade and become less visible. Fortunately, there are various treatments available to maximize scar reduction.

In the case of shallow scars, it is possible to work only on the surface, with technologies such as lasers, profractionated radiofrequency, or pulsed light. The laser will smooth out the scars, whether they are deep or raised. Although total disappearance is not possible, the aesthetic appearance of scars can be significantly improved.

For the treatment of scars, we use the following equipment:

CO2 LASER, ERBIUM YAG SCITON, GENESIS by Cutera, Defocused CO2, ROLLER RF PIXEL, VENUS VIVA, SCITON BBL and MLP, IMPACT ALMA LASER. For deeper scars, we use these same technologies, but we combine them more, to ensure that we treat the skin deeply and maximize their attenuation. At Clinique Laflamme, each treatment is personalized to your skin and your expectations. This is why we invite you to contact us for a free initial consultation!
