Dr. Aronowitz has perfected his approach over a career that spans 30 years. Now, he is ready to help you heal your skin and restore your natural beauty.
What Does Scar Removal Involve?
Scar removal often involves the use of IPL Photofacial treatments. IPL, or intense pulse light, is effective in treating facial redness, discoloration, broken capillaries, brown spots, and spider veins and is also used to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate scars. The concentrated pulses of light cause a chemical change within the skin cells, stimulating collagen production and facilitating healing. This procedure is very safe and non-invasive. There is little to no downtime, so treatment can easily be scheduled around work and social activities.
What Kind of Scars Can Be Treated?
IPL can effectively treat acne scarring, scars from accidents, and surgical scars. In most cases, scars can be diminished, leaving you with beautiful skin free of blemishes. To find out if your scar can be fully treated, an initial consultation is necessary. During your visit, the doctor will evaluate your skin and discuss the procedure in greater detail.
What to Expect
The doctor uses a special, medical-grade tape worn for 2-3 weeks following surgery to help the skin. Next, Embrace silicone dressings are applied by our trained staff every two weeks for 4-6 weeks to control and minimize the development of any new scar tissue. After Embrace therapy, our patients are placed on a regimen of bioCorneum®+ scar gel, a silicone-based medicine, to protect the fresh scar tissue from the elements and sun exposure.
Finally, Dr. Aronowitz provides IPL treatment to reduce any remaining redness and pigmentation once the healing is complete. This option is a good choice for patients with scars associated with injuries or surgery, including a tummy tuck, breast reconstruction, breast lift, breast reduction, and arm lift.
Scar Removal Results
You can expect to see a reduction in the appearance of scarring following treatment. If the original scarring was mild to moderate, Dr. Aronowitz might treat all signs of any skin damage. Deeper or more severe scarring is usually significantly reduced to the point of not being noticeable by others.
