Who Says Scars are Forever? Learn About our Laser Scar Removal Treatment

You may have a good story behind your scar. Or, it may be due to surgery or acne. Whatever the cause, are you ready to get back your smooth, evenly toned skin?

At Open Water Medical, we want to help men and women in the Crystal Coast region of North Carolina clear up unwanted scars. We use Icon™ laser technology to make scars much less noticeable or nearly invisible.

Icon scar treatment

The Icon laser uses heat energy to target your scar tissue without doing any damage to the surrounding skin. The powerful laser energy activates your body’s own healing system, so you start to produce new skin cells and supportive compounds, such as collagen and elastin.

In response to the laser energy, your immune system replaces the scar tissue with healthier tissue.

It works for many patients

Icon laser scar removal is safe for all skin types. It can help you whether you have mild to moderate scarring from acne, surgical procedures, or other trauma. Even stretch marks can be treated with Icon technology. You’ll see your scars lighten in color and become more even in texture.

Side effects

Some patients may have redness and swelling at the treatment site, but this should resolve in a few days. If you have concerns about other possible side effects, talk to our team at Open Water Medical, so they can discuss the ease and comfort of the treatment.

Short treatment course

A scar-reduction treatment will last about 30 minutes depending on the size of the treatment area. And, you should see results in just 3-7 treatments. The exact number of treatments you’ll need will depend on the extent of your scarring and how your body reacts to treatment. The team at Open Water Medical will develop a custom treatment plan for you.

No downtime

Icon laser scar treatment is noninvasive. This means you’ll have no downtime. To get rid of your scars, you won’t have to worry about needles, incisions, surgery, or blood loss. Nor will you risk getting an infection.

Bonus treatments

Icon laser technology is also helpful in addressing other skin concerns along with your scars. If you have discoloration from freckles, sun spots, facial veins, wrinkles, and other issues, Icon laser technology can help with these, too. Discuss all of your aesthetic concerns with the providers at Open Water Medical, so we can help you get the smooth, evenly toned skin you desire.

Scars don’t have to remain as reminders of trauma, surgery, or acne from the past. Call Open Water Medical to learn how we can even out your skin texture in just a few sessions with easy laser treatments. Call any of our offices or book an appointment online.
