Rolling Scars Edmonton
Treatment for rolling scars typically involves excising the scar tissue and rebuilding the skin with either grafts or flaps. However, in some cases, laser therapy may be an effective treatment option. Laser therapy works by heating the tissue and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibres. This can help to improve the appearance of rolling scars and make them less noticeable.
- In addition, laser therapy can also help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. However, it is important to note that laser therapy is not always effective and may not be suitable for all rolling scars. Before undergoing any treatment, it is important to consult with a qualified medical professional to determine the best course of action. Subcision is a surgical procedure that is used to treat rolling scars. The scar tissue is released from the underlying tissue, allowing the scar to heal better.
- This can improve the appearance of the scar and make it less noticeable. Subcision is usually performed using a needle or a small knife. The procedure is usually done under local anesthesia, but sedation may be necessary. Recovery from subcision typically takes one to two weeks. The risks of subcision include bleeding, infection, and scarring. However, these risks are rare, and the procedure is generally safe. Subcision can effectively treat rolling scars and help improve the skin’s appearance.
How do you know if you’re a good candidate for the Laser to treat your rolling scars?
Laser therapy is a popular treatment option for scars, but not all patients are good candidates for this treatment. The best candidates for laser therapy are those with rolled scars that are not too deep or too narrow. In addition, patients must be willing to undergo multiple treatment sessions, as laser therapy is often ineffective after just one session. Finally, patients should have realistic expectations about treatment results, as laser therapy will not completely remove them. However, with proper treatment, most patients can significantly improve the appearance of their scars. Rolling scars can be frustrating to deal with, but several treatment options can help improve the appearance of these types of scars.
