All scars are defined as PERMANENT. They can result from acne, infection, injury or surgery. Fortunately, however, there are now a variety of advanced procedures for improving the appearance of scars and making them less noticeable.
I have been receiving a lot of questions about scar removal treatments which also made me think that scars really are a huge concern for a lot of Pinoys. Whether the scars came from a good or bad memory, it will never change the fact that it will always look annoying and disturbing.
Which is Better Belo or Calayan?
Belo and Calayan are offering various scar removal procedures. Like for instance, Calayan’s Pixel laser technology have been gaining popularity with its effectiveness on ablative or deeper skin resurfacing with the comfort and convenience of a non-invasive approach. On the other hand, Belo’s Fraxel and IPL have been famous in removing depressed and keloidal scars with brown and red marks.
However, I believe that the removal of a scar is a loaded concept. When you remove a scar you replace it with another scar, you just have to make sure that you replace it with a better and less noticeable scar. This means that each scar must be treated differently and in accordance to its type, location, severity, age, size, color etc. Also, not all advanced technology works for all types of scars.
There is no better clinic between Belo and Calayan. Both have excellent weapons for scar removal and both are excellent doctors. However, the effectiveness of these weapons rely on their own talents. Meaning, no matter how advanced the technology they can possess, its useless if they fail to use it appropriately.
