A scar can be caused by an injury, for example due to an accident, surgery, illness, pregnancy or a skin problem. Scars come in various shapes and sizes. Each scar tells its own story. Sometimes a scar feels tight or hardened. It is also possible that a scar remains red, is thickened or is sunk into the skin. Although scars can never be completely removed, in most cases the skin therapist can help make the scars less visible.
Fractional Laser Treatment
For the treatment of scars, we at Skin Project work with the renewed, revolutionary Fractora technique on the Inmode Laser. With fractional laser therapy we can repair damage to the connective tissue in a very controlled and effective way, making your skin gradually stronger, smoother and more elastic in the long term.
The Fractora technique is a method that uses radio frequency in combination with needles. The needles make tiny fractionated holes in the skin, so that the production of collagen and elastin fibers is optimally stimulated in the deeper layers of the skin. In combination with the radio frequency, the effect of this is multiplied.
The Fractora is CE and FDA certified, which ensures the safety of the equipment.
Microneedling with the SkinPen
Renew the skin in depth, without causing superficial damage and with minimal downtime. This is possible with the SkinPen. The SkinPen is the world's first FDA-approved medical micro-needling system. It is also the only system FDA approved for the safe and effective treatment of scars. With medical micro-needling, tiny micro-channels are made in the skin by means of very small, sterile needles that vibrate on the skin. During the treatment, the natural recovery process is activated deep in the skin, which creates new collagen (type 3) and elastin. The SkinPen is more powerful, more precise and safer than ever before! In contrast to many other micro-needling systems, the needle depth can be set on the needle itself and therefore never goes deeper or more superficially into the skin than set. In addition, the SkinPen is the only micro-needling system with which proven pure micro-channels are created. This is both unique and the safety of the treatment is guaranteed.
Important to know
Depending on the treated area and the intensity of the treatment, the skin will look a bit redder and feel warm / stinging. This feeling will subside after a few hours. The treatment has a short recovery period. After the treatment it is important to keep the skin dry for the first 24 hours. Some scabs may form. It is important not to scratch this. The scabs will fall off on their own after a few days. We recommend avoiding the sun and exfoliating products after the treatment and to protect the skin from the sun as much as possible. If desired, we can also advise you on the right post-treatment cream and foundation. These products have been specially developed for application after a cosmetic treatment and ensure that the recovery of damaged skin is accelerated.
What effect can you expect?
With 3-6 treatments you can achieve an increase of 400% more collagen and elastin and a thickening of the skin of up to 140%! A new skin layer is created that is smoother, stronger and more elastic than before. The color as well as the structure and depth of the scars will be significantly improved.The treatment is possible on every skin type. For optimal results, 3 to 6 treatments are required with an interval of 4 to 6 weeks.
Reimbursement health insurance
Treatment for scars in the face can possibly be reimbursed from the additional health insurance. The amount of your reimbursement depends on your insurance. In the case of reimbursements from the supplementary insurance, no claim is made on your deductible. Skin Project is recognized by all health insurers.

Yes, with specialist skin therapeutic techniques we can properly treat scars with a lasting result. We usually treat scars a number of times within a short period of time. However, the end result is the production of collagen/elastin is only visible 3 to 6 months after the last treatment.
Depending on the treated area and the intensity of the treatment, the skin will look a bit redder and feel warm / stinging. This feeling will subside after a few hours. After the treatment, we always apply sun protection with possibly a camouflaging color. So you can continue with your daily activities. With deeper scar treatments, your skin may have a recovery time in the week after the treatment (flaking, redness, micro scabs and swelling). We always discuss this with you before the treatment, so that you can take this into account.
