Scars Treatment


Understanding Scar Formation

Scars form as a natural part of the healing process when the skin repairs itself after an injury. The type and severity of a scar depend on various factors, including the nature of the injury, the location on the body, and individual skin characteristics. Common types of scars include:

  • Atrophic Scars: Depressed scars that sit below the surface of the surrounding skin, often caused by acne or chickenpox.
  • Hypertrophic Scars: Raised scars that remain within the boundary of the original wound, typically resulting from surgery or injury.
  • Keloid Scars: Overgrown, raised scars that extend beyond the original wound, more common in individuals with darker skin tones.

Comprehensive Scar Treatment and Laser Scar Removal in West Hollywood

At Cupid Lips, we offer a variety of non-surgical treatments to effectively reduce the appearance of scars and enhance your skin's texture. Laser treatments are among the most effective methods for reducing the appearance of scars. At Cupid Lips, we utilize cutting-edge laser technologies to target scar tissue and promote skin renewal.

Fraxel Dual Laser

  • How It Works: The Fraxel Dual Laser creates microscopic treatment zones in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This process helps to smooth out scars and improve overall skin texture.
  • Benefits: Effective for treating various types of scars, including acne scars, surgical scars, and stretch marks. The treatment involves minimal downtime and offers long-lasting results.

VBeam Pulsed Dye Laser

  • How It Works: The VBeam laser targets blood vessels within the scar tissue, reducing redness and improving the appearance of hypertrophic and keloid scars. This laser is particularly effective for treating raised scars.
  • Benefits: Precise, non-invasive treatment with minimal discomfort and quick recovery time.

Microneedling with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Microneedling combined with PRP is a minimally invasive treatment that stimulates collagen production and accelerates the healing process.

  • How It Works: A device with fine needles creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin. PRP, derived from your own blood, is applied to enhance the healing process and stimulate collagen production. This helps to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of scars.
  • Benefits: Improves the texture and appearance of atrophic scars, promotes overall skin health, and involves minimal downtime.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are effective for exfoliating the skin, removing dead skin cells, and promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

  • Types of Peels: We offer a range of chemical peels, from mild to deep, depending on the severity of your scars and skin type.
  • Benefits: Reduces the appearance of scars, improves skin texture, and promotes a brighter, more even complexion.
