Thanks to the revolutionary skin resurfacing treatments offered at Goldenberg Dermatology, patients in the NYC area can finally say goodbye to unsightly scars. The Cutera Excel V 532 Laser and Eclipse Microneedling with PRP can be used to treat acne scars, surgical scars, C-section scars, scars from injuries, and even stretch marks. And, best of all, Cutera Excel V 532 laser scar removal and PRP Microneedling come with no downtime!
While scars can fade in color over time, unfortunately, scars do not generally go away on their own. And clinical studies have proven what may sufferers of unattractive scars already know: acne scars and other scarring can cause a person to feel more self-conscious and less confident about their appearance. But new and advanced treatments now make scar removal a reality.
In this article the skin care specialists at Goldenberg Dermatology in NYC explain everything you need to know about getting rid of unappealing scars with the Cutera Excel V 532 Laser and Eclipse PRP Microneedling.
Laser Scar Removal
Using advanced laser technology, the Cutera Excel V 532 Laser targets and breaks down the unwanted scar tissue – while leaving the healthy surrounding skin intact.
The laser energy delivered to the scar tissue also penetrates deep within the dermis (lower layer of skin) to activate the body’s natural healing process. This stimulates the skin to repair itself, so fresh, new health skin cells grow replacing the scarred skin cells – so the scars disappear over time.
After undergoing Cutera Excel V 532 Laser Scar Removal, our NYC patients will begin to see their skin’s coloration and smoothness continue to improve incrementally over the next several weeks. Perfect for acne scars, surgical scars and C-section scar removal, the Cutera Excel V 532 Laser helps our NYC patients obtain smooth, healthy, even-looking skin.
Depending on the size of the treatment area, Cutera Excel V 532 Laser Scar Removal only takes about a half hour to perform. Although treatment plans will vary with the depth and location of the scarring, most of our NYC patients see dramatic scar reduction results after only 2 or 3 treatments. Up to 6 quick laser scar removal treatments may be required for deeper or more extensive scarring. Since everyone’s skin is different, renowned NYC dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg develops a customized, individual scar treatment plan for each of his patients.
PRP Microneedling Scar Removal
The Eclipse MicroPen Microneedling combined with PRP is another treatment that harnesses the body’s own healing processes to smooth and resurface scars. Eclipse PRP Microneedling reduces scars naturally, affordably and with little to no downtime.
The Eclipse MicroPen system creates tiny but very deep “channels” in the skin with clinical-grade, ultra-fine needles. The body perceives these microscopic needle pricks as “injuries” which stimulates the body’s own natural wound healing processes. This activates renewed production of collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of healthy skin.
And combining PRP with microneedling – sometimes popularly referred to as a “Vampire Facial®” – takes scar removal to the next level. The use of PRP (“Platelet Rich Plasma”) in conjunction with microneedling has been proven in clinical studies to leads to more rapid improvement of scarring than microneedling alone.
Platelet Rich Plasma (or PRP) is obtained by extracting a very small amount of blood from the patient’s arm, then separating out the solid blood cells from the liquid “plasma” using a centrifuge. The remaining liquid “Platelet Rich Plasma” is extremely high in concentrated levels of the body’s natural repair factors.
The extracted PRP is then delivered deep into the lower layers of the skin (dermis) through the extremely fine and deep micro-channels created by the microneedling. The concentrated growth factors in the PRP help activate the skin’s cellular repair process. The damaged skin cells (scar tissue) are replaced by new, healthy, tissue as the collagen and elastin fibers resurface the skin and fill in acne scars.
Advantages of Laser & PRP Scar Removal
Individuals of almost all skin types – even darker skin tones – can safely undergo PRP microneedling or Cutera Excel V laser scar removal. Prominent NYC dermatologist Dr. Gary Goldenberg will examine each patient’s scars and assess a variety of factors during a patient’s laser scar removal consultation – and then determine which scar removal treatment is best for them.
Both Cutera Excel V and Eclipse PRP Microneedling it can be used to treat scars on any area of the body, making them popular choice for NYC patients with acne scars on the face and surgical scars anywhere on the body. And since stretch marks are themselves a kind of scar tissue, Cutera Excel V and Eclipse PRP Microneedling can be used to treat them as well.
Additionally, most of our NYC scar removal patients experience no downtime after Cutera Excel V or Eclipse Microneedling. While there may be some light redness afterwards, most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities as soon as they leave Goldenberg Dermatology.
