ThermaScan is a special pulsed infrared laser that can selectively target the region in your skin responsible for improving collagen, thereby reducing the appearance of surface defects and scarring.

The ThermaScan laser treatment rejuvenates your skin from the inside out. The laser energy penetrates into the upper layers of your skin. The fibroblasts in the targeted areas of your skin are stimulated to begin generating collagen. After your treatment, collagen and elastin fibers continue to multiply, so you will see improving results over the months ahead. This results in softer, smoother and more vibrant skin as it is restored to its natural beauty.

ThermaScan laser treatment is gentle and non-invasive. There should be minimal discomfort. You may feel a warming of the skin or a rubber band snap-like sensation as the procedure is performed. However, this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. A topical anesthetic cream can be used on extra-sensitive areas. However, no injections are needed.

There is virtually no downtime associated with the procedure. Typically you will experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Results vary depending on your condition, number of treatments, and the area treated. However, makeup can immediately be applied. No wound is created, therefore no healing time is required. Dr. Tyler will provide you with complete information about the post treatment effects and results.

Clinical studies suggest that at least two treatments are needed to stimulate new collagen growth and most people will begin to see benefits by the fourth treatment. Dr. Tyler may recommend regular touch-up treatments to sustain the continued growth of new collagen as you age. These treatments are usually spaced 2 weeks apart.

It is important to follow Dr. Tyler's instructions. You may be given some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. This will minimize your risk of inflammation or redness and ensure the shortest recovery time. You must avoid direct sun exposure. Fully cover your skin or use a good sunscreen whenever you go outdoors.
