A lot of people make the mistake of assuming that scars are there forever, that they cannot be improved. But, what if we told you that wasn’t the case? There are actually ways to improve scarred skin, and this includes PlasmaPen treatment.
Scars are harmless and easy to ignore a lot of the time. After all, they aren’t doing any damage? However, a lot of people want them removed. Scars that are on show can impact confidence, self esteem and the joy felt when you look in the mirror. They can also be a reminder of an accident or an acne flare up that you would rather forget about. If you are unhappy with a visible scar, you might find yourself hiding it away. This is no way to live, which is why treatments to improve scars are so popular.
What Causes Scarring?
There are a lot of things that cause scarring; cuts, scratches, burns, insect bites, surgery and general injuries. They can also form as a result of acne and similar types of damage to the skin. Scars form when the top layer of skin becomes damaged and the deeper layers of skin begin to repair this damage, but are unable to do so completely. If the skin cannot heal itself entirely, a scar will form. This can happen even if the damage to the skin was minor, such as with acne scarring. Some scars fade over time, whilst others last for a lifetime. Luckily, there are treatments available to help providing that the scar is non-keloid as its not recommended for treatment.
How Does PlasmaPen Treatment Help?
PlasmaPen treatment can help to reduce the appearance of scarring, and it’s especially effective at treating acne scars. PlasmaPen works by encouraging the skin to produce collagen, which increases the elasticity in the skin and stimulates the skin to repair itself. During this process, the appearance of scars begins to fade gradually, in the same way that PlasmaPen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
What Results Can I Expect?
You can expect impressive results when you use PlasmaPen to heal scarred skin, and it’s one of the most common reasons for having the treatment. PlasmaPen leaves scars a lot less visible, noticeable and obvious. The surface of the skin is smoother, creating a much less textured appearance, and a more ‘flawless’ finish is achieved. PlasmaPen can also help to take some of the redness out of the skin, which also helps the scars to be less obvious. With scars healed, the skin appears fresh and rejuvenated.
As you can see, PlasmaPen is a treatment worth considering if you want to reduce the appearance of scars. To find out more about PlasmaPen and how treatment can help to reduce the appearance of scars, get in touch with our team.
