Get a Comprehensive
Scar Removal Consultation

Dr. Truong offers a thorough and comprehensive consultation where you can get the details on all of your cosmetic options. He’ll take the time to answer each and every one of your questions.

What to Expect

For your scar reduction, Dr. Truong utilizes PicoSure®, a procedure called fractional laser scar therapy to reduce scarring on the skin. The process involves using a laser to send small pulses through the scar tissue, breaking it down and allowing new tissue to grow in its place.

This type of laser skin resurfacing can be a viable option for people of all skin types and is generally a quick procedure with minimal discomfort. Laser skin rejuvenation also has the added benefit of being less invasive and painful other treatments to correct scarring, and requires less healing time as well. Additionally, PicoSure® has also proven effective for tattoo removal.

Your Consultation

During your initial consultation, Dr. Truong will walk you through the process of scar removal therapy and address what your expectations should be concerning your results. He may also recommend adopting a preventative approach toward addressing acne scars through the help of a medical grade skincare regimen.

While some scars may not be able to be removed completely, there are many options available for reducing the size and appearance of scars that cannot be fully erased. Very deep acne scars may require treatment with dermal fillers.

Preparing for Your Tattoo Removal

Your scar removal can be often be performed in just 30 minutes, though times may vary depending on other physical factors. PicoSure® laser skin rejuvenation is usually quick with minimal discomfort, though you may experience some sensitivity at the treatment site. Since scar removal is typically performed on an outpatient basis, you should be able to return home shortly after your treatment.

Recovery & Results

Dr. Truong may have you return for repeat PicoSure® sessions if you find that you’d like more extensive results than one treatment can offer, though this will depend on his assessment of your body’s response to the procedure and whether you are a candidate for repeat treatments. With Dr. Truong’s expert guidance with you throughout every step of the way, you can enjoy smoother skin and a more luminous, scar-free complexion.
