Whether you fell off a bike when you were a kid, picked at pimples as a teenager or had a surgical procedure as an adult, just about everyone has a scar or two they wish would fade away. Scars are a not-so-friendly reminder of a healthy body process, created when your skin repairs a wound caused by an accident, acne, infection, inflammation, or surgery.
They are the visible signs that remain on your skin after the wound has healed. Until recently there have been few solutions available, other than surgical revision. However, with advancement in several lasers and tech treatments, MD TLC™ patients are able to achieve significant improvement in acne, surgical and traumatic scars, regardless of skin type.
Scar rehab is a real thing at MD TLC™. Dr. Quibell will harness your skin’s natural ability to heal itself and encourage it to regenerate through fractional laser treatments in combination with other devices and regimens. If you have scars that are lumpy or sunken and vary in shape and size, there are procedures that can dramatically improve the appearance of all types of scars in most skin types.
Even if you no longer have acne, past pimples can leave lasting scars on your appearance. PicoSure laser treatments encourage skin cell production to naturally improve your skin tone and texture. As new skin cells develop, your acne scars will gradually fade away. This non-ablative technology has fewer side effects and less downtime than other fractional laser treatments, meaning you will be back to your normal routine quickly.
The type of skin laser treatment that will be most effective for you depends on the type of scar you have. As the Vice President of the American Board of Laser Surgery since 2008, Dr. Quibell is a doctor passionate about rehabilitating scars and rejuvenating skin. During a one-on-one consultant, she will determine the best strategy for treating your unique scars.
