Depending on where the scar is, the age of the scar, and several other factors, a scar revision can be performed to improve its appearance. Peak Aesthetics offers scar revision utilizing the Pixel CO2, a state of the art, non-surgical treatment by Alma lasers. This procedure is quick and easy.

---Laser Skin Tightening---
Laser skin tightening sessions can effectively boost a patient's supply of collagen and elastin to give the skin a firmer, more toned appearance.
WHAT IS NONSURGICAL SKIN TIGHTENING?
Over the course of our younger years, we get to enjoy a rich supply of collagen and elastin that makes our complexion supple and firm. As we age, this vital storage of proteins becomes depleted, causing these tissues to lose resilience, which results in fine lines and saggy skin. Many of our clients seek to enhance the firmness of their skin with a noninvasive solution. With the Pixel CO2 device, laser skin tightening works to increase the development of fibers and proteins so it's possible to achieve tighter, glowing skin. Board-certified family physician Benjamin Pinner, MD and his staff in Peak, SC are proud to provide nonsurgical skin tightening for individuals who want to recharge and firm their skin with lasting nonsurgical options.
