MINIMISING TRAUMA AND SURGICAL SCARS
|REDUCE THE VISIBILITY OF SCAR TISSUE WITH BROADBAND LIGHT [BBL]|
Scar Revision |
No longer do we have to endure unsightly scars.
Scars form as part of the natural healing process and come in many different sizes, shapes, and colours. Until the scar tissue heals, we do not know if they will remain indented, depressed or raised. They can also limit your range of motion or shrink in size and fade in colour.
Most scars, however, are permanent.
Sciton’s advanced BroadBand Light (BBL™) fractionated erbium: YAG laser can effectively provide significant improvements to scar tissue by breaking down the existing collagen and triggering the production of new collagen, with the end result blending more subtly in with the surrounding tone and texture of the skin.
Additionally, BroadBand Light (BBL™) treatments can minimise scar pain and itching and prevent a raised scar from forming following a surgical procedure by stimulating the natural healing process. However, it is advisable to begin the BBL™ therapy as soon as possible in order to achieve faster and more effective results in just a few sessions.
DOWNTIME: The procedure takes approximately one hour. FOLLOW UP SESSIONS: Patients may require an additional repeat laser treatments, subject to the severity of the scar.
For deeper and larger scars resulting from trauma, patients may require Dr Chang, a specialist plastic surgeon in reconstructive surgery to surgically improve their appearance.
