Our range of cutting-edge procedures is designed to effectively diminish the appearance of scars, helping you achieve smoother and more even skin. With our team's dedication to excellence, you can trust VIPS to provide top-tier solutions for scar refinement and enhance your skin's natural beauty.

What Is Scar Refinement?

Scar refinement is a cosmetic procedure designed to improve the appearance and texture of scars on the skin. It encompasses a range of treatments and techniques to reduce the visibility of scars, making them less noticeable. VIPS offers a comprehensive array of scar refinement options, including advanced treatments such as CO2 laser, Morpheus8 RF microneedling, Laser Genesis, and the Silagen Scar Refinement System, all designed to effectively reduce the appearance of scars and promote smoother, more beautiful skin. These treatments can help to smooth the skin's surface, reduce discoloration, and stimulate collagen production, ultimately resulting in a more even and aesthetically pleasing skin texture.

I have been going for six treatments of microneedling and CoolPeel laser. Aesthetician Savannah Phillips is amazing!! From the first time I had my consultation, she answered all my questions and was very knowledgeable. For all treatments, she has been awesome, friendly, and makes you feel very comfortable. The results have been great as well. Skin is tighter, firmer, and more youthful, and the scarring and acne damage are dramatically less visible.

Your Consultation

During your consultation, Dr. Vinyard will examine your skin’s condition, carefully assessing your scars’ type, location, and age. He will also review your medical history and discuss your beauty goals. This thorough evaluation allows him to recommend the most suitable scar refinement treatment for your specific needs and desired outcome. Our attentive patient care coordinator will guide you through a transparent cost estimate tailored precisely to your personalized treatment plan, ensuring you clearly understand the cost of your scar refinement procedure.

What Is the Technique?

Our advanced scar refinement techniques are meticulously chosen based on each individual's unique needs and desired outcomes. This personalized approach ensures that the most effective and suitable method is employed to diminish scar visibility and enhance skin texture. Our medical aesthetician will choose from the following options to create your unique treatment plan.

CO2 Laser

CO2 laser scar refinement employs concentrated light beams to remove damaged skin layers and stimulate collagen production. This precise treatment can significantly reduce scar appearance, especially for acne scars.

Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis gently heats the skin's upper layers, stimulating collagen production. Effective for treating surface scars, this non-invasive therapy enhances skin texture and tone.

Morpheus8 RF Microneedling

Morpheus8 combines radiofrequency energy and microneedling to rejuvenate scarred skin. It remodels collagen and elastin, improving texture and reducing scars, including those from surgery or acne.

Silagen Scar Refinement System

Silagen is a specialized topical product line designed to minimize and improve the appearance of scars. These silicone-based gels and sheets offer a non-invasive approach to scar refinement, reducing redness, texture irregularities, and discomfort.

What to Expect

During the scar refinement procedure, topical anesthesia or numbing creams may be used to minimize discomfort. Afterward, some redness, swelling, or mild discomfort may occur, but this typically subsides within a few days. Patients are usually advised to follow post-procedure care instructions, which may include gentle cleansing, applying recommended skincare products, and protecting the treated area from sun exposure.

Over time, as the skin heals and regenerates, the scar's appearance will improve, with noticeable refinement and enhanced skin texture. Depending on the scar's severity and chosen technique, multiple sessions may be required for optimal results. Dr. Vinyard's expert team will ensure that you are prepared with aftercare instructions to optimize the results of your selected scar refinement treatment.
