Scar reduction is a specialized treatment that reduces the appearance of scars caused by acne, injuries, or surgical procedures. Using state-of-the-art technology and a personalized approach, we help clients regain their confidence and reveal their natural beauty through this safe and effective treatment.
How does it work?
Scar reduction at Atlantic Skin Care involves a combination of PicoSure laser technology and Dp4 microneedling techniques. The laser stimulates the skin's natural healing process, encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Microneedling complements this by triggering the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of smooth and plump skin. This dual approach effectively reduces the appearance of scars and rejuvenates the skin.
