Scar Reduction

Scars are depressions or indentations in the skin that occur after a medical condition such as acne or after a surgical incision. When they are on the face or other visible areas, these scars can carry a stigma of adolescent acne long after the acne is gone, or they can serve as unpleasant reminders of a past surgery.

Yuva Medical Spa uses the FDA-approved Fraxel Re:Store laser treatment, ICON Fractionated Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments, and PicoSure Focus Laser treatment to reduce scars and smooth the skin’s surface.

The Fraxel Re:Store laser specifically targets the problem areas to improve the scars, and resurfaces about 15-30% of the skin during each session. This results in a much quicker healing time. In most cases, four treatments are needed. In addition to reducing scars, Fraxel Re:Store can also be used to treat sun damaged skin, uneven pigmentation, wrinkles, stretch marks and burn scars.

ICON FLSR (Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing) is a safe, non-ablative procedure that works like an eraser to remove damaged skin at the surface and uncover more youthful looking skin.  FLSR is effective in treating benign pigmented lesions, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scars, stretch marks, and melasma. This treatment is termed “fractional” because only a fraction of the skin is treated in each session, leaving the remainder of untreated skin to speed the healing process.  Therefore, patients experience excellent results with minimal downtime.  Because only a portion of the skin is treated in a single session, most people will require a series of 4 treatments spaced about 3-4 weeks apart.

PicoSure Focus Laser Treatment revitalizes your skin by removing unwanted pigmentation, treating wrinkles and correcting acne scars. The Focus Laser treatment delivers short burst of energy  to target problem areas without causing harm to the surrounding skin. This innovative technology can help you achieve a more youthful appearance with minimal downtime and discomfort
