C-Section Scar Treatment

Many C-section scars can heal quite nicely, but if signs of a C-section scar are still prevalent, The Kaga Institute provides treatments that can help.

About

A C-section scar is the result of a C-section where a surgeon will make two incisions. The first incision is through the skin of your lower abdomen, while the second incision is in the uterus where the doctor will reach to deliver your baby.

Procedure

There are two procedures that we use to reduce a C-section scar, Pearl skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy and Juliet skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy.

Pearl skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy can dramatically overhaul your complexion by correcting a variety of skin conditions, including dyspigmentation, photoaging, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, uneven skin texture, and acne scarring.

Juliet skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy is ideal for patients with sun damage, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture, scarring, and reduced elasticity due to aging. Skin is resurfaced to reveal healthier, and a more even complexion with 1 to 3 treatments.

Benefits

Either procedure can help reduce the signs of C-Section scar.
