Hawaii Medical Skin Care is the only place in Hawaii that offers the gold standard for scar treatment with the Lumenis UltraPulse Encore laser which combines the abilities of SCAAR FX and DeepFX to ablate away the scar tissue by creating small channels, finer than the size of a human hair. These channels penetrate all of the way through the thick scar tissue, allowing normal cells to rise to the surface, remodeling and resurfacing the scar. This is combined with ActiveFX to smooth and flatten the surface of the scar, while stimulating your own body’s collagen to grow and even out the contours of the scar. This combination, helps create new, organized collagen deep within the scar and improves the color and texture of the surface of the scar.
With six times the power of most CO2 lasers, UltraPulse with SCAAR FX treats deep scars like never before. UltraPulse SCAAR FX treatment can improve a patient’s quality of life by improving range of motion as well as the appearance of the skin. Using precision and higher energy impact, UltraPulse delivers maximum results with minimal side effects and reduced treatment time.
What are scars?
Scars are marks left on our skin from burns, trauma, acne and surgical incisions, and are a part of the body’s natural healing process in response to bodily injury. Normally, the body stimulates collagen production in an organized matrix to mend the injury. However, unsightly scars are created when the healing process is overwhelmed and the collagen is created in a disorganized manner, causing thick and uneven scar tissue to form.
How do you treat scars?
The best treatment for the scars involves treating the full dermal thickness of the scar with DeepFX to create new tissue from within and improve flexibility, and treating the surface with ActiveFX to improve color and texture.
What is ActiveFX?
ActiveFX uses a high-energy beam of laser light that interacts with the skin’s surface causing the upper layer to peel off and regenerate a layer of new skin resulting in improved scar color and texture. The laser beam is applied in a fractional pattern, leaving “bridges” of untouched skin. This technique makes the healing process much faster and enables you to return to normal activities sooner.
What is DeepFX?
DeepFX uses laser microbeams that precisely target the deep dermal layers of the skin. Each laser pulse removes a narrow column of scar tissue and simultaneously creates a very controlled and narrow band of surrounding injury, which stimulates new collagen production deep in the dermis (inner layer of skin). The new collagen is produced in an organized manner, rather than the disorganized collagen matrix of a scar, resulting in the softening and smoothing of scars and improved texture and mobility.
