If you suffer with scars from old injuries, or perhaps even acne from puberty, laser resurfacing can help to break down the scar tissue and reduce the scar’s appearance. Laser resurfacing is also adopted to rejuvenate the skin, as it reveals a fresh layer of skin.

The SCAAR FX is the most intense setting on the Ultrapulse device. The laser pulse goes deep into the dermis to break down scar tissue and promote collagen production, helping the body to reform and repair the skin. This setting is mainly used for scarring and acne scarring.

Technical Information

The device creates a “”controlled wound”” in order to trigger the body’s natural healing processes. In order for scar tissue to break down, an ablative laser is used, so that collagen production is encouraged and the scar loses some of its integrity.

This treatment has been proven to reduce the texture and tone of the deepest lesions and scars atrophic, tethered and rolling scars.

SCAAR FX has been lauded as the best solution to atrophic scars (pitted scars like those from acne), tethered scars (scars that are attached to an underlying structure), and rolling scars (those with rounded or sloping edges) and as Dr Tapan Patel, an internationally renowned cosmetic dermatologist (and director of PHI Clinic), takes a special interest in treating scars, you know you are in safe hands with this treatment.

While the treatment does not prevent people from carrying out their usual activities, most patients prefer to rest at home until the skin is fully repaired. This also depends on area treated.
