VBeam Perfecta® Laser Treatment

The VBeam Perfecta® laser uses pulses of light to destroy damaged blood vessels in the area of the scar. This technology can also smooth out the scar reducing its appearance. The VBeam Perfecta® is also equipped with a special coolant that makes the procedure itself more comfortable.

SmoothBeam Laser Treatment

The SmoothBeam is especially useful for acne scars when persistent acne remains. The SmoothBeam can decrease the size of oil glands while stimulating collagen production, thus reducing the appearance of scars.

Fraxel® Laser Skin Resurfacing

The Fraxel® laser skin resurfacing system harnesses light energy to penetrate deep into the skin, focusing the light only on the area of scar tissue to bring forth healthier skin cells. The treatment can effectively reduce the appearance of scars with little to no downtime. This procedure is effective for all types of scars including traumatic scars, surgical scars, and acne scars.
