As we age, there are any number of things that can befall your skin and leave scars behind. Injury and trauma can do it, as can acne. You may also have scarring from past burns or surgical procedures. While you can be proud to have withstood any of those issues when they happened, scarring can still affect your appearance and make you feel less confident when you are out in public.
Scarring that has affected the outler and even deeper layers of your skin do not have to be permanent. Using modern technology and techniques, there are ways that you can get your skin looking younger and healthier. You don’t have to live with those scars anymore. Bridgeport Laser & Wellness has several options to help diminish or eliminate your scars and get you feeling your best yet again.
Treatments for Scars:
When it comes to healing your skin and making it look its best, there is nothing more important than collagen. Collagen encourages the skin to repair itself as well as creating elasticity, which gives skin its vibrancy. As you get older, your body will produce less and less collagen, meaning that your skin can look old, and scars will look more pronounced. The best way to encourage more collagen production is through creating minor damage to the skin that requires healing. Microneedling involves using tiny needles to create tiny abrasions that need to be healed. The body will automatically send collagen to that spot. When microneedling is used on scarred sections of skin, it will heal up clearer and more vibrant than it was before.
Potenza is the gold-standard of microneedling, and Bridgeport Laser & Wellness is proud to offer it to our clients. Not only does it use tiny needles, but it also sends heat to the affected location to help the healing penetrate further into the skin and encourage even more collagen. Potenza uses Tiger Tip technology to provide deep and shallow treatments simultaneously. This will save you time, and also make it easier on technicians to do their work. They will not have to go over certain areas several times to provide treatment. Potenza makes it easy for your treatments to be custom-designed to your skin and face, so you can be sure to get the best results possible. You can expect those results within 6-8 weeks after your treatment.
There’s no reason for you to suffer with your scars for the rest of your life. At Bridgeport Laser & Wellness, we want to make sure that our clients finish their treatments feeling confident and looking their best.
