Scars

Scars are so common that almost everyone has at least a few. They are areas of fibrous tissue that form when our skin is damaged. Aside from trauma, scars can also develop as a result of an infection, surgery, or disease. They can appear anywhere on the body, and are usually formed within the first couple of months after a surgery or trauma.

Scars treatment

At Q Esthetics Laser Clinics , stretch mark removal treatments use the latest technologies to maximize the effect for different types of stretch marks.

Microdermabrasion , IPL and Fractional Laser Tightening can all provide great results for new stretch marks that are still reddish, purplish or darker colored than the rest of the skin*. On the other hand, the Fractional Laser Resurfacing procedure is more effective against older stretch marks, and those that are white in color.

While no scar can be removed completely, at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic we can improve the appearance of a scar or make it less visible through many scar removal procedures. Introduced in the 1980s, Laser Scar removal is now one of the most effective scar treatments available. Early laser scar removal procedures were often performed with the Nd:YAG laser or the CO2 ablative laser; however, these were associated with transient or modest results, high rate of scar recurrence, extended downtime, and undesirable side effects.

Today new technology, called fractional laser resurfacing, has become the new gold standard for laser scar removal. We are one of the leading laser clinics to perform fractional laser scar removal procedures in Toronto. Our trusted expertise and professional staff have treated a diverse range of scars, resulting in the highest number of satisfied patients in the Greater Toronto Area. Please call one of our three convenient clinics today and schedule your complimentary consultation, to find out how we can help you diminish the appearance of your scars*. Our experienced medical staff will carefully assess your scar condition to ensure the right option is carried out for you.

The most common types of scars caused by acne

Ice pick scars – these types of scars are deep, small pits on the surface of the skin and are extremely common among those who have had acne.
Boxcar scars – are round or oval depressions on the skin, which have sharp angles or steep vertical sides. They are wider than ice pick scars in size, and give the skin a pitted appearance.
Rolling scars – tend to be wide and shallow and are caused by damage under the surface of the skin. This type of scarring usually causes ‘wave-like’ undulations across the skin, hence the name.
Macular scars – flat scar, with increased or decreased pigmentation.

How does laser treatment work?

Here at Q Esthetics Laser Clinic, we work with thousands of acne patients each year, so we understand how you feel about unsightly acne and the frightening possibility of acne scarring. Our experienced, medical staff will thoroughly examine your complexion to ensure the right treatment options are offered to you for your specific needs.

Hypertrophic scars present themselves as raised, firm masses of tissue. Unlike ice pick or boxcar scars, these scars are not caused by a loss of tissue; rather they are formed due to an overproduction of collagen.
Both hypertrophic and keloid scars are produced by an excess production of collagen, however, they act differently. A hypertrophic scar forms soon after the skin has been lacerated, whereas a keloid may not begin to form for up to a year after the injury. In keloid scars, the collagen actively spreads into nearby healthy tissue. With hypertrophic scars, the collagen remains contained within the original bounds of the injury – thereby leaving the healthy surrounding tissue unaffected.

Scars

Atrophic scars: Unlike hypertrophic scars, atrophic scars form as a result of an insufficient production of collagen or connective tissue, to heal the site of an injury. They are usually formed when the underlying structures supporting the skin, such as fat and muscle, are lost and result in pitted scar – similar to the surface of a golf ball.
Surgical scars: Surgical scars are visible scars that remain on the skin after an intentional surgical incision has healed. Whether a wound heals well or poorly, a surgical scar may remain. It is common to see rows of dots alongside a large linear scar, due to the staples or sutures that were used to close the wound.
Burn scars: Burn scars form as a result of the skin’s exposure to fire or an extremely hot surface. They may be darker than the skins pigmentation, or completely devoid of color. First-degree burns generally do not cause scarring, whereas second and third-degree burns will likely cause some degree of scarring. Burns may result in hypertrophic/keloid scars or contracture scars, which tighten muscles and tendons making it difficult to move.
Striae: Stretch marks are linear bands of wrinkled skin, caused by rapid weight loss or weight gain. Older striae are usually lighter in colour and more fibrotic. While stretch marks may occur anywhere on the body, they are most common on the stomach, breasts, upper arms, thighs, and buttocks. Stretch marks may initially appear red or purple, however, over time as they lighten they sometimes appear silver in color.
