Scar Reduction Q & A

What is scar reduction?

For scar reduction, the practitioners at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics use Morpheus8 radiofrequency technology to gently heat the skin and build collagen and elastin without surgery or downtime. Doing so helps reduce:

  • Acne scars
  • C-section scars
  • Chicken pox scars
  • Some surgical scars
  • Other thin scars
  • Stretch marks

Scar reduction at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics is noninvasive and offered right in the office.

What are the benefits of scar reduction?

When choosing nonsurgical scar reduction at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, there’s no cutting, surgery, needles, anesthesia, or pain. You’ll achieve noticeable scar reduction after just a few sessions, with little to no side effects.

Am I a good candidate for scar reduction?

Your aesthetics practitioner reviews your medical history and examines your skin to determine if scar reduction with Morpheus8 is right for you. The technology works well on scars that are thin. 

For thicker scars, surgical scar revision might be the best option so you can achieve the smooth skin you desire.

What should I expect during scar reduction?

During scar-reduction treatment, your practitioner applies Morpheus8 radiofrequency energy to affected areas. 

Radiofrequency energy plus microneedling heats up the skin, creates tiny microtears in it, increases collagen production, and remodels the tissue to reduce scars and improve your skin’s tone and texture. 

The procedure is well-tolerated by most patients. Your aesthetics physician uses a topical anesthetic to enhance comfort during the procedure if you’d like. The length of time treatment lasts varies based on the number and size of scars, but it often takes less than an hour.

What happens after treatment?

After the procedure, you might experience temporary redness or swelling, but you can resume normal everyday activities right away. Apply ice to the affected area as needed. 

Your provider might recommend a series of Morpheus8 scar-reduction treatments to achieve optimal results. You may notice visible improvements within a few days, with more dramatic results appearing after three weeks.
