Types of Scars

The type of scar that forms depends on your skin type as well as the degree of the wound or injury. The most common types of scars are:

  • Contracture Scars: These scars appear as a result of a burn injury. They form tightly in order to protect the injured skin.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: These scars usually appear thicker and more raised as they are formed by collagen fibers that do not break down as the wound heals. Over time, they tend to appear less prominent but always remain at the site of the injury.
  • Acne Scars: Acne scars result from inflamed blemishes and pores that were popped and picked as they surfaced. These scars appear as tissue is lost in the healing process.
  • Atrophic Scar: Atrophic scars are typically flat or may even appear as a circular dent in the area where they form. They are usually the result of deep, cystic acne.
  • Keloid Scars: Keloids are raised scars that develop over more area than just the injury site and are typically found in people with darker complexions.

The Cynosure Icon™ 1540 XD/XF

Dr. Patel utilizes the most advanced fractional laser resurfacing treatment system available today, the Cynosure Icon™ 1540 XD/XF, which treats scars using a series of non-invasive and quick procedures. It produces amazingly visible results in the reduced appearance of concave acne scars and other scars through a series of non-ablative laser treatments. Through the stimulation of cellular regeneration within damaged tissues and the production and growth of new collagen in the skin, the Cynosure Icon™ 1540 XD/XF laser is able to reduce scar appearance.  It allows Dr. Patel more user control in order to better tailor treatment to the individual, rather than providing a one-size-fits-all treatment, which aligns with our commitment to individualized, comprehensive care.

The Laser Skin Resurfacing Difference

Acne scars form as the skin heals itself from large and inflamed pimples which, depending on the level of stress the skin has endured, can result in hyperpigmentation and/or texture changes. There are many topical and in-office treatments that claim to improve the appearance of these scars. Skin care products tend to be the least effective of such treatments, with most patients not experiencing their desired results from using the products alone. Dermal injection fillers can create a temporary solution for depressed scarring but do not address the skin’s tone and texture changes. The results from laser skin resurfacing generally last longer than any result can from a filler injection.

Laser skin resurfacing provided at Iconic Medical Skin & Laser Center is different from other options out there as the treatments we provide create real results that develop over three to four months after your treatment. This is achieved without removing the top layer of the skin as is done with ablative laser treatments and peels, resulting in the swollen red look often experienced afterward. Instead, you will experience gradual and natural results from the very first treatment, leaving you looking refreshed over time. No one will be able to tell what you may or may not have done.

Erbium vs. CO2 Laser

Erbium lasers are less invasive than CO2 Lasers. Because most of our patients do not have a week or two to spend in recovery post-treatment, we usually recommend treatment with an erbium laser system such as the Cynosure Icon™ 1540 XD/XF.
