Scars and Stretch Marks

The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times allow the psychological impact of scar revision treatments to be realized much sooner by patients.

Scars are caused by trauma or injury to the skin, and arise as the skin begins its natural healing process. There are many different types of scars and skin irregularities, including:

  • superficial textural changes
  • deep ice-pick scars
  • raised hypertrophic scars, which occur when the wound healing process creates excess scar tissue, such as with keloids
  • depressed atrophic scars, often associated with acne scarring
  • stretch marks
  • post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, when the skin is darker than normal; and
  • hypopigmentation, when the skin is lighter than normal

The Fotona SP Dynamis is equipped with a high performance Er:YAG laser that ablates skin more efficiently due to proprietary VSP (Variable Square Pulse) technology, which can be accurately tuned to varying “cold” ablation and non-ablative thermal ratios.

Full customisability allows our medical practitioner to precisely attain the clinical outcomes you desire.

The Nd:YAG laser on the SP Dynamis perfectly complements the Er:YAG laser’s ablative action with the ability to penetrate deeply into the skin to create thermal effects without damaging the skin surface.
