Scars on high

 

Clinical picture

Las cicatrices son la expresión del proceso de cicatrización que ocurre en la dermis y en la epidermis tras una agresión, bien sea tras una intervención quirúrgica o después de un traumatismo. Cuando la cicatrización es excesiva, la cicatriz se sobre eleva.

A las cicatrices sobre elevadas las dividimos en dos grupos: las queloides y las hipertróficas simples. A su vez tenemos otros tipos de cicatrices tales como cicatrices deprimidas puntiformes producidas por secuela de acné, varicela, etc, las cicatrices deprimidas producidas por traumatismos o actos quirúrgicos, las cicatrices anchas.

Depressed scars

Clinical picture

Depressed scars are due to loss of skin, subcutaneous tissue, and often muscle and bone.

These scars can be caused by accidents on public roads, acts of violence or as a result of surgery. It is common to see depressed scars after a cesarean section and / or surgical interventions for peritoneal pictures.

Fat has little defense against infectious processes and when an infection occurs there is a loss of this tissue. The depressed scar is produced by the replacement of the tissue in that area with connective scar tissue.

Treatment

Although scars cannot be completely removed, our surgical experience and the laser technology we have will allow us to help you improve the aesthetic and functional appearance of your scar.

This procedure is performed by Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.
Place: Hoogstra Surgical Unit Medical Centers, San Jose de Calasanz 176, Caballito, CABA.
Type of Procedure: Outpatient, with local anesthesia and sedation. Safety and comfort are combined.
Anesthesiologist: anesthesiology team at Hospital Fernandez.

Remove scars by Piercing

At Hoogstra Medical Centers we treat piercing scars with laser technology, which avoids additional scars.

The word piercing comes from the verb "to pierce" which means to pierce, to pierce. Today the practice of piercing has spread to other parts of the body such as the eyebrows, nostrils, navel, lips, tongue and genitals, among others.

Clinical picture

After a time the hole produced begins to epithelize and a fistula is generated, that is, a connection or channel between tissues or organs.

The fistulas do not close spontaneously and when the person removes the decorative element, either because they do not want to use it anymore or because they have an infection or allergic reactions, they have a depressed scar and an unsightly fistula and sometimes an over raised or keloid scar.

Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra uses advanced techniques in plastic and restorative surgery often associated with lasers for the treatment of scars caused by piercing.

The patient can immediately continue his normal life.

Burn scars

When the burn has been superficial, the skin usually regenerates and therefore there are no scars or only changes in coloration. For this type of burns, at Hoogstra Medical Centers we only use the Helios laser to improve the texture and color of the lesion.

When the burn has affected the entire skin, there are raised scars and tissue retraction.

How to remove scars?

The word Laser comes from the English Light: it amplifies, stimulates and radiates. This light is transformed into heat, which vaporizes the scars on high, lowering their thickness and aesthetically improving the burned tissue.

The Fractionated Carbon Dioxide Laser produces multiple perforations of the burned tissue resulting in a new generation and tissue remodeling.

The combination of the Carbon Dioxide Laser in its superficial and deep ablative modality, produces surprising changes in burn scars. These changes on the surface are seen as a flattening of the tissue and in the depth as a stimulation and a remodeling.

Recovery

Carbon dioxide laser treatment usually produces redness and edema that last from 2 weeks to a month, depending on the intensity and energy used. We do not see this effect when we carry out the treatment with the Erbium Lotus laser, the patient immediately continues with his normal life.

The Laser Lotus produces a slow and gradual improvement of all raised scars, improving the texture and quality of the tissue.
