Comparable Scar Treatments

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.

skin. Tiny crystals on a handheld vacuum pump remove the

 Microneedling at Spa - A treatment that works by inducing collagen deep in to the skin,
