Laser Scar Removal in Augusta, GA
Scar Removal just got easier
At New Skin Medical Spa, we offer non-surgical laser scar removal treatments which can improve the appearance of existing scars in as little as one treatment. As of 2020 we also offer Virtue RF Microneedling and Subnovii Plasma Pen treatments as an additional option to minimize scars effectively. Whether you suffer from acne scars or have unsightly scars from an injury or surgery, Dr. Sherman can help you determine which treatments are best for you. We often recommend Virtue RF Microneedling in addition to the traditional laser scar removal treatments. Depending on the location and depth of the scars it may be necessary to commit to combination therapy for best results. Subnovii plasma pen treatments for example can be ideal for existing scars from a previous Blepharoplasty (eyelid lift). The key is not to damage the surrounding tissue, which none of the treatments we offer do. Professional Skincare and scheduled facials are also important to keep the skin healthy and smooth. Enlarged pores can also be kept at bay with a regular skincare routine.
If you want to opt for a no-downtime treatment and your scars are not very deep, Virtue RF can break up superficial scar tissue and plump the skin without any downtime and also prevent new breakouts if you suffer from acne.
Bottom line, scars, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, and other skin conditions not caused by the aging process can make the skin look dull and unhealthy looking. This can create confidence issues even in the most beautiful young patients. So, don’t wait to seek treatment because we have many treatment options for you, and coupled with good skincare (Skin Better Science) you are on your way to beautiful healthy skin. New Skin Medical Spa also recommends Skinwave Aqua Facials on a regular basis to keep the skin exfoliated, smooth, refreshed, moisturized, and promote healthy cell turn-over.

Scar Removal Frequently Asked Questions
Scars form when the skin becomes injured or damaged. As the natural healing process is trigged, new skin and collagen begin to grow. Sometimes too little or too much collagen forms, disrupting the skin growth and creating a scar.
The innovative Icon™ by Cynosure® laser can improve the appearance of most scars. While scars cannot be completely erased, this treatment can significantly improve the way that scars look and feel. Your treatment plan will be customized to ensure the best possible results for your needs. Using a combination of fractional laser light and the stimulation of your body’s own natural healing response, the Icon™ laser will increase production of new collagen and skin cells to reduce the appearance of scars. After a few treatment sessions, your scar will become significantly smoother, lighter, and less noticeable.
Results will become visible just a few weeks after your treatment, and over the following 2-3 months, the appearance of the scar will continue to improve.
Some patients may experience side effects with laser scar removal. These include swelling, sensitivity, skin flaking, or a mild burning sensation. Minimizing sun exposure and using a quality moisturizer can help to protect your skin so that it heals properly after treatment.
Dr. Sherman may recommend additional treatments beyond your first session to achieve your desired results. He will evaluate your skin type and the characteristics of the scar to determine how many treatments you need (usually between 3 and 7). Based on your customized treatment plan, each laser scar removal treatment session may be spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
