If you’re ready to break free from your scars – and your self-esteem issues – then it’s time to visit Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Victoria, Texas.

Scar Treatment by Dr. Nhi Le

Founded by Dr. Nhi Le, Fountain of Youth Medical Spa is the premier destination for superior scar treatments. Thanks to innovative treatments, Dr. Le can treat a variety of scars, including:

  • Atrophic scars
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Keloid scars
  • Acne scars
  • And more

While scars can be caused for a number of reasons – including traumatic injuries, burns, and surgical scars – Dr. Le uses an advanced treatment that causes micro-wounds to the scarred area.

Scars occur when there’s an excess of collagen type 1, which is released by the body to heal the wound. Wound healing – where Dr. Le uses a tiny needle to cause multiple punctures in the scar area – reignites the body’s healing process.  However, instead of collagen type 1, the body releases collagen type 3, which suppresses and diminishes the look of the scar.

In addition to micro-wound healing, Dr. Le can also use laser treatments to fade the appearance of scars.  The skin absorbs the laser energy, which heats the subdermal tissue and encourages the production of collagen and elastin.  This helps increase cellular turnover, which brings new, unscarred skin to the surface.

If you’re considering scar treatment, it’s important to note that you should treat your scars as soon as possible.  Newer or fresher scars have a better chance of being healed, which means your skin can go back to normal again.
