Scar Treatment in Philadelphia and NJ

Don't let your scars on the skin lead to scars on your self-esteem. At Malik Medical Aesthetics, we provide the advanced treatments for your scars and help you get your confidence back to its best.

SURGICAL SCARS

One goal with any type of surgery is to avoid serious scarring; however, many patients will have residual scars with excessive redness and stiffness. Sciton's ProFractional Therapy provides a solution to lessen or eliminate residual surgical scars. Improving the appearance of our patients' scars will boost their confidence and self-esteem.

BURN SCARS

Fire and thermal injury can cause severe scars - disfiguring patients and causing pain. Burning, itching, decreased function and reduced range-of-motion are common. Sciton's ProFractional Therapy initiates wound healing, in order to produce new collagen and elastin while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. With ProFractional Therapy, we can greatly improve our patients' range of motion, confidence, and self-esteem.

HOW DOES SCAR TREATMENT WORK?

ProFractional Therapy provides excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. ProFractional Therapy ablates narrow channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area.

ProFractional therapy provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation. The physician can precisely tune the laser to the exact tissue effect desired - from pure ablation to pure coagulation, and every combination in between. This helps us in getting the best possible results for our patients, from shallow scars too deep and thick scars. The response of the body can be modified to prevent bigger scars if they are evaluated early on and managed. Scars on the face need more finesse and other areas of the body can tolerate deeper resurfacing. Call today for your complimentary consult to learn about the options.

BENEFITS OF PROFRACTIONAL THERAPY INCLUDE

  • Increased patient comfort
  • Shorter healing times
  • Tunable results that range from subtle to dramatic
  • Treats all skin types, both on face and body

SCIENCE + TECHNOLOGY

Better ablation through more efficient water absorption

ProFractional utilizes an erbium: YAG laser, which was chosen due to its high ablation efficiency. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2 (see graph below) which gives erbium the ability to vaporize tissue with very little thermal conduction. By contrast, due to their comparatively low absorption by water, CO2 lasers have lower ablation efficiency and therefore, unavoidably, conduct a significant amount of heat into the tissue.

TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) technology

Erbium's high water absorption is only part of the story. What truly sets ProFractional apart is TRL technology, which gives the user the ability to adjust the depth of ablation and coagulation independently. By modulating the laser's energy to deliver supra-ablative pulses, ProFractional is able to vaporize any depth of tissue from 25 to 1500 µm per pass with extreme precision. If coagulation is desired, ProFractional-XC delivers a train of sub-ablative laser pulses that heat the tissue to a selectable depth without vaporizing it.

ProFractional's TRL technology can ablate from 25 µm to 1500 µm with exacting precision.
