Scar Reduction


Scars mar the skin due to many reasons —trauma, surgery, illness, acne, or become visible after a facial surgery. Scar removal can help you feel more confident about your appearance. Embarrassment or worry about your appearance due to visible scars impacts your quality of life, and we are here to help.


Scar Reduction Treatments Under the Care of a Physician

At Skin Deep MD in Boulder, we offer scar reduction treatments that can greatly improve the appearance of scars – and bring you greater confidence in your appearance. Each scar reduction treatment is overseen by one of Boulder’s most respected physicians, Dr. Melody Denham. You can trust that your treatment will be performed with meticulous care for superior results.

Laser scar reduction can be achieved without surgery. Our non-invasive treatments can greatly reduce the appearance of visible scars in just minutes. To treat visible scars, we use a micro-fine laser light to penetrate the deep into the skin layers to trigger the skin’s natural regenerative processes. Damaged tissue is sloughed off and replaced, along with fresh collagen and elastin, leaving you with fresh, smoother-looking skin.


Benefits of Scar Reduction in Boulder

You’ve developed a noticeable scar or maybe multiple scars, and no matter how you received them, whether through trauma or acne breakouts, they may have wreaked havoc on your self-esteem. Our scar removal in Boulder helps reduce the look of imperfections, leaving your skin with a more even tone and smoother texture.

Numerous skin conditions can benefit from a scar reduction procedure. Our patients have found many benefits including:

Am I a good candidate for scar reduction?

If you want to improve the appearance of tissue scarring on any location on your face or body, you may be a good candidate for our innovative scar reduction treatments. Our experienced team at Skin Deep MD can treat most types of scars and will gladly meet with you to discuss your options.


What to Expect During Your Scar Reduction Procedure

It is important to understand that while laser scar reduction can do many things to improve the look of scars it cannot completely fully remove the scar. The procedure will be performed in our offices in Boulder, Colorado, and will take approximately one to two hours.

Our experienced aesthetician employs the ICON laser to remove the top layer of skin and damaged skin cells creating the scar. The laser will also penetrate the skin’s middle layers, tightening and smoothing as the wand passes over the scar. After the treatment, you can expect:

  • Mild redness in the treatment area
  • Minimal to no discomfort
  • A scar that is less than six months old will have the best results

Keep in mind that scar reduction is not a one-time procedure. Depending on the severity of the scar, it can take multiple treatments to achieve optimal results. We can assure you that the procedure will greatly improve the texture and overall smooth quality of your skin.


Your Results Depend Largely on Your Laser Treatment Specialist

Scar reduction with laser treatments can produce truly dramatic improvement in the appearance of visible scars. To achieve maximum results and avoid serious side effects, it is important that you are under the care of a skilled professional who is trained in scar reduction therapy.

At Skin Deep MD, we believe in staying at the cutting-edge in modern aesthetic treatments and offer advanced scar reduction treatments. We make a promise to do everything we can to ensure that you have the best possible experience and see real world results – we know how much effective treatment can increase your feeling of confidence and wellbeing.
