treatment can only improve the appearance of a scar; it cannot completely erase it.
The following are some of the more common scar-minimizing procedures:
Dermabrasion. Dermabrasion may be used to minimize small scars, minor skin surface irregularities, surgical scars, and acne scars. As the name implies, dermabrasion involves removing the top layers of skin with an electrical machine that abrades the skin. As the skin heals from the procedure, the surface appears smoother and fresher.
Chemical peels. Chemical peels are often used to minimize sun-damaged skin, irregular color (pigment), and superficial scars. The top layer of skin is removed with a chemical application to the skin. By removing the top layer, the skin regenerates, often improving the skin’s appearance.
Collagen injections. One type of collagen (made from purified cow collagen) is injected beneath the skin. It replaces the body’s natural collagen that has been lost. Injectable collagen is generally used to treat wrinkles, scars, and facial lines. There are several other types of injectable materials that can be used also.
Cortisone injections. These types of injections can help soften and then shrink hard scars. Keloids and hypertrophic scars often soften after intralesional steroid injections.
Cryosurgery. Cryosurgery can help reduce the size of scars by freezing the top skin layers. The freezing causes the skin to blister.
Laser resurfacing. Laser resurfacing uses high-energy light to burn away damaged skin. Laser resurfacing may be used to minimize wrinkles and refine hypertrophic scars.
Punch grafts. Punch grafts are small skin grafts to replace scarred skin. A hole is punched in the skin to remove the scar. Then the scar is replaced with unscarred skin (often from the back of the earlobe). Punch grafts can help treat deep acne scars.

MegaPeel helps you grow your business by offering microdermabrasion, one of the top five nonsurgical cosmetic procedures in the United States.*
Our system offers four types of microdermabrasion treatment, enabling everyone from spa owners to physicians to address all their aesthetic needs.
Known as a “lunchtime” skin rejuvenation procedure, a microdermabrasion treatment can be completed during a lunch hour without any downtime for the client.
For clients with moderate to severe skin damage
(up to 86 kPa).
The Renu Pen micro needling pen creates porations in the skin to allow for serums and product to penetrate deeper. By creating these channels in the skin, the product can reach the damaged cells in the dermal layer. This minimal invasive treatment causes microscopic damage which tricks the skin into thinking it needs to repair itself. This allows for direct blood flow to that area and rebuilds the fiberblasts and remodels the collagen.

Renyte is an acellular product derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of the umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is a clear, gel-like tissue that contains up to fifty times more hyaluronic acid and growth factors than amniotic fluid, further increasing regenerative success. These higher concentrations of growth factors act as an anti-inflammatory to prevent cell death.
Renyte may be the best option for those with less serious injuries or for those who are interested in gaining a more youthful appearance.
Reviv is comprised of amniotic fluid and micronized placental membrane, which is rich in anti-inflammatory properties and considered to have anti-microbial and anti-adhesion capabilities. To further prevent inflammation, the chorionic layer of the placenta has been removed. Reviv is intended to regulate and maintain the tissue regeneration process.
The extracellular matrix of Revive contains a high concentration of cellular scaffolding, cytokines, growth factors, and proteins. The extracellular matrix(ECM) is a collection of extracellular molecules that provide the structural support needed for surrounding cells. Amniotic ECM is comprised of collagens, multi-adhesive glycoproteins, elastic, glycosaminoglycans, growth factors, and cytokines.
Rexo is an innovative extracellular vesicle product that offers advanced healing properties. Extracellular vesicles are found in all bodily fluids and are primarily used in cell signaling. They contain nearly three times more growth factors than adult stem cells and influence the growth of target cells. They are a vital regenerative component due to their unique ability to transfer information from cell to cell.
