There are many types of scars, and at Inovo Medical, we have options for treating the array of existing scars. Scar treatment options generally fall into two categories, depending on the size and nature of the scar: stem cell treatments and laser treatments.
STEM CELL TREATMENTS FOR SCARS
Stem cell treatments help to regrow healthy skin over the damaged or sick area. Stem cells are used to treat two (2) types of scars:
- Psoriasis Scarring
- Major Scar Defects
Stem-cell technology has yielded very promising results with various stubborn skin diseases (such as eczema, psoriasis, and shingles) that have been difficult to treat. A simple subcutaneous injection can trigger the proliferation of new healthy skin cells.
Furthermore, stem cell therapy can be used to treat peripheral neuropathy syndrome. This quite painful syndrome is caused by small dysfunctional skin nerves.
Major Scar Defects
Major scar defects can be treated in a minimally invasive manner thanks to stem cells. Injections are made at the site of the scar, and over a period of 3 months, the scar disappears as the smooth new skin grows over the area.
LASER TREATMENTS FOR SCARS
Various laser technologies such as the ResurFX, and the IPL have been developed to treat the different types of scars. At Inovo Medical we can treat three (3) types of scars using laser technology:
- General scars
- Acne Scars
- Surgical Scars
These cosmetic procedures have very low complication rates and are minimally invasive. They are same-day procedures, meaning that the procedures only take a few hours to be complete, and patients return home the same day. If you would like to know more about our scar treatments, please contact us.
