Scars can be a source of insecurity and embarrassment for many individuals. Whether caused by acne, chicken pox, surgery, or any injury, scars can detract from one’s appearance and make them feel self-conscious about their appearance.

PRP to Get Rid of Scars
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Facials – trademarked by some as “Vampire Facials™” – use the patient’s own blood to stimulate collagen production and improve the texture of the skin. This treatment is effective for treating all types of scars including those caused by acne, chicken pox, surgery, and injury.
PRP involves using the patient’s own blood to extract a concentrated mixture of platelets, growth factors, and cytokines, which are then injected back into the patient’s skin to stimulate healing and regeneration. In the case of scar repair, PRP works by promoting the production of collagen, which is a protein that helps to support the skin and give it a smooth appearance.
Collagen also plays a key role in wound healing, and by promoting its production, PRP can help to speed up the healing process of scars from acne, chickenpox, surgery, or injury. Additionally, PRP has been shown to improve the texture and tone of the skin, which can further enhance the overall appearance of scars. Overall, PRP is a promising treatment for scar repair that offers a natural and minimally invasive alternative to more aggressive procedures.
PRP can also be combined with other scar reduction treatments – including Morpheus8 Microneedling below. Patients may experience some discomfort during the PRP procedure, but it is typically well-tolerated. There is little to no downtime associated with PRP Facials, and patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results in getting rid of scars.
Morpheus8 Microneedling to Get Rid of Scars
Morpheus8 Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of scars. This treatment is effective for treating scars caused by acne, chicken pox, surgery and injury.
Morpheus8 is a microneedling treatment that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling technology. The treatment involves the use of a device with tiny needles that puncture the skin and deliver RF energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response, which includes the production of collagen and elastin.
In the case of scar repair, Morpheus8 microneedling can help to improve the appearance of scars by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin. The needles create tiny channels in the skin, which triggers the body’s healing response and promotes the growth of new, healthy tissue. The RF energy further stimulates collagen production, leading to a smoother and more even skin texture.
Patients may experience some discomfort during the procedure, but it is typically well-tolerated with the use of topical anesthesia. Downtime can range from a few days to a week, during which time patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling. Multiple treatments may be required for optimal results – which will improve over time as the bodies natural repair mechanisms build new collagen on a cellular level.
CO2RE Laser to Get Rid of Scars
CO2RE Laser is a fractional laser treatment that also gets rid of scars by encouraging the body’s natural collagen production. This treatment is effective for treating scars caused by acne, chicken pox, surgery, and injury. Though more expensive than chemical peels or Frax 1550, the CO2RE Laser is the gold standard in getting rid of unsightly and embarrassing scars.
CO2re is a type of laser therapy that uses carbon dioxide (CO2) laser technology to resurface the skin and improve the appearance of scars. The laser energy is delivered in a precise and controlled manner, removing the top layer of the skin and promoting the growth of new, healthy tissue. The treatment also stimulates the production of collagen, which is a key protein that helps to support the skin and give it a smooth appearance – reducing the appearance of scars and improving the overall texture and tone of the skin.
CO2RE Laser is safe and effective – and can be customized to each patient’s individual needs and preferences. We alleviate discomfort during the procedure at AMAE Med Spa in Birmingham, MI with the use of topical anesthesia. Downtime can range from a few days to a week, during which time patients may experience redness, swelling, and peeling. For most men or women, only a single CO2RE laser scar reduction treatment is needed for dramatically visible results! However, some thick, deep, or darker scars, may necessitate a second procedure.
