Keep reading to learn more about the types of scars, and treatments we offer.

  • Keloid Scars: Keloid scars are characterized by their raised, thick appearance and often extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound. They result from an overgrowth of scar tissue.
  • Acne Scars: Acne scars are typically the result of inflammatory acne lesions, such as cysts, nodules, or pustules, that damage the skin’s collagen and elastin. They can manifest as depressions or indentations in the skin, known as atrophic scars, or raised bumps, known as hypertrophic scars.
  • Ice Pic Scars: Ice pick scars are a type of acne scar characterized by narrow, deep pits in the skin’s surface. They are often caused by cystic acne lesions that penetrate deep into the skin.

Types of Treatments

  • Morpheus8: Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency technology to target scars deep within the skin. By stimulating collagen production and remodeling tissue, Morpheus8 can effectively improve the appearance of scars, resulting in smoother and more even skin texture.
  • Microneedling: Microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that involves using fine needles to create tiny punctures on the skin’s surface. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing process, promoting the production of collagen and elastin. As a result, microneedling can help reduce the appearance of scars by smoothing out the skin and improving its texture over time.
  • Pico Laser: Pico laser is a cutting-edge technology used in dermatology and cosmetic procedures. It works by delivering ultra-short pulses of energy to the skin in stimulating collagen production. Pico laser treatments are highly effective for removing various types of scars, including acne scars and pigmentation issues, by breaking down unwanted pigments and promoting skin rejuvenation.

What to expect on the day of a Scar Removal treatment

On the day of your scar removal treatment at Aesthetics MedSpa in Lansing, MI, you can expect a welcoming and comfortable environment. After checking in, you will meet with Dr. Ronan, who will explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have. Depending on the type of scar removal treatment chosen, the process may involve the use of advanced technologies such as Morpheus8, Microneedling, or Pico laser.

For Morpheus8 treatment, radiofrequency energy is delivered deep into the skin using Microneedles, stimulating collagen production and remodeling the skin. Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin with fine needles to trigger the body’s natural healing response and promote collagen production. Pico Laser treatment utilizes ultra-short pulses of laser energy to break down pigment and stimulate collagen production, effectively reducing the appearance of scars.

Whichever treatment we proceed with, Dr. Ronan will ensure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure and may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort, as well as provide post-treatment instructions to promote optimal healing and results.
