The wound healing process after a surgical or aesthetic procedure takes several months to be fully completed. Scar formation can be influenced by several factors including genetics, type of wound and location.
A minimal scar after surgery is normal and often does not need treatment but traumatic- or postoperative scars that stay red or become too thick (hypertrophic scar or keloids) can be treated to reduce the thickness or the redness.
Most commonly treated scars are post-surgical scars, traumatic scars and acne scars.
Different techniques will be used depending on scar origin, colour and thickness.
Healite uses 830 nm wavelengths, which has scientifically shown to speed up recovery, reduce redness and oedema and stimulate the cells responsible for wound healing.
It has been shown to accelerate the healing of wounds caused by laser treatment or surgery, and can even reduce the pain, bruising and swelling experienced post-laser treatment.
We systematically use the Healite (LED LLLT 830nm) treatment to optimise wound healing after cosmetic or surgical procedures.
