We called our local clinics, spas, and esthetician offices in the LA area to figure out the general price ranges, downtime, and effectiveness of different scar treatment options so you don't have to!
|Laser - Damages the top layer of skin so new skin regenerates. Flaking and peeling of the skin is common afterwards.
Results are usually seen in 1-3 treatments.
|$3000+||Very Painful||7-30 Days||5/5|
| Chemical Peels - Acidic chemical masks are placed over the skin and left there
for 30 seconds - 10 minutes based on the severity of the scars.
These remove the top layer of skin, allowing new skin to form.
Results seen in 2-5 treatments.
|$150+/ treatment||Moderate||7 Days||3/5|
| Microdermabrasion - A treatment that only targets the outermost layer of
skin. Tiny crystals on a handheld vacuum pump remove the
cells on the top of the skin. Results seen in 4-8 treatments.
|$150+ / treatment||1 Day||Mild||2|
| Microneedling at Spa - A treatment that works by inducing collagen deep in to the skin,
causing the skin to rebuild itself. The needles penetrate the skin
by creating tiny holes in the skin and heal it. Results seen in
1-4 treatments. Trauma (bleeding) can occur and numbing cream is often used.
|$250+ /treatment||Painful to no pain||12 Hours||5/5|
| Facials - Topical creams, lotions, and facial masks are applyed on the
skin and are either left there for a few minutes and removed or
left to skin in. They are done at spas and dermatology offices.
Results seen in 2-10 treatments.
|$60 - $150/treatment + tip||None||None||2/5|
