At Front Door MedSpa, we offer scar reduction services to help you fall back in love with your skin. However, these treatments may not be ideal for everyone. Learn more by calling 248-413-5835

Considering Scar Reduction? Here Are Some Factors to Consider

If you’re considering scar reduction treatment, Front Door MedSpa offers a variety of options to help you achieve smoother, more even skin. But before diving in, here are some important factors to consider:

  • The Type of Scar: Different scars respond best to specific treatments. During a consultation, our aesthetician will assess your scar type (keloid, hypertrophic, atrophic, etc.) and recommend the most effective approach.
  • Scar Severity: Generally, deeper and more noticeable scars benefit more from scar reduction treatments. We can help determine the severity of your scar and create a personalized treatment plan.
  • Your Emotional Wellbeing: Scars can sometimes cause emotional distress or self-consciousness. If your scar is impacting your quality of life, scar reduction can significantly improve your confidence and comfort in your skin.

What Scar Reduction Treatments Do We Offer?

Specials at Front Door MedSpa® in Rochester, MIAt Front Door MedSpa, we understand how scars can impact your confidence. That’s why we offer a comprehensive range of advanced scar reduction treatments to address various scar types and concerns.

Secret RF

This innovative treatment utilizes microneedling with radiofrequency energy to stimulate collagen production, effectively minimizing the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and wrinkles. Unlike traditional microneedling, Secret RF offers a more comfortable experience.

Juliet Machine

Experience faster healing and minimal downtime with the Juliet Machine. This device delivers targeted energy to your skin, promoting collagen production and a gradual shedding of the outer layer, revealing a rejuvenated, smoother complexion.

PDO Threads

Harness the power of PDO threads to tighten and revitalize your skin. These threads stimulate collagen production and improve blood flow to the treated area, reducing scar visibility and enhancing overall texture.

Dermal Fillers

Injected beneath the skin, dermal fillers restore volume, soften wrinkles, and refine your skin’s surface. This can significantly reduce the appearance of scars for a smoother, more even complexion.

Excel V Laser

For red or pink scars, the Excel V laser delivers targeted light therapy to diminish scar coloration, leaving you with a more even skin tone. This treatment is particularly effective for acne scars.


These are concentrated platelet preparations derived from a patient’s blood. PRP and PRF are injected into and sometimes under the scar to stimulate the growth of new tissue and recruit stem cells. This can potentially lead to a smoother, less noticeable scar.

Who Does NOT Qualify for Scar Reduction Treatment?

Skin resurfacing in Rochester, MIWhile scar reduction treatments can be very effective, they aren’t suitable for everyone. Here are some general factors that might make someone a less ideal candidate for scar reduction procedures at Front Door MedSpa:

  • Unrealistic Expectations: Scar reduction treatments can improve the appearance of scars, but they cannot completely erase them. If someone is expecting perfect results, they may not be a good candidate.
  • Certain Medical Conditions:  Some underlying health conditions may increase the risk of complications during treatment. During a consultation, our aesthetician will discuss your medical history to determine if scar reduction is safe for you.
  • Active Acne: If you have active acne breakouts, it’s generally best to wait for your acne to be under control before undergoing scar reduction treatment. This can help quiet the acne long enough to resurface and possibly prevent future breakouts
  • Pregnancy or Breastfeeding: Wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to undergo scar reduction treatments.
  • Recent Sun Exposure: Sun exposure can make some scar reduction treatments less effective and increase the risk of side effects. You may need to avoid tanning or sun exposure for a certain period before and after treatment.

This list is not exhaustive, and the best way to determine if scar reduction is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our experienced aesthetician at Front Door MedSpa. They can assess your situation and recommend the most appropriate course of action.
