Scar Therapy Release

Revitalize Your Skin: Scar Therapy Release at Irvine Acupuncture

Scars tell stories, but sometimes they become unwelcome reminders. Irvine Acupuncture presents Scar Therapy Release (SRT), a groundbreaking technique harnessing the power of microcurrent technology to diminish the visibility of various scars, improve blood flow and release tension.
To treat scars, we use acupuncture and microcurrent point stimulation (MPS) to reduce the ill effects scars have on our bodies. Scar Release Therapy (SRT) increases inter-cellular metabolism, protein synthesis and healing functioning to re-awaken the skin’s ability to self-generate.

Scars’ Negative Influence

The precise reasons scars influence chronic pain is not 100% scientifically fully understood. But a recently published scar study (Armstrong IJCAM 2016) reports how far-reaching influence they have on our bodies long after the surgical procedure.

This study compared scars to chronic pain locations; only a tiny percentage of the Chronic Post Surgical Pain (CPSP) experienced by patients was reported locally, with 90% of CPSP distant to the location of the scar.

  • Understanding SRT: Unveiling Your Skin’s Potential


    SRT for Surgery Scars

    Science now recognizes that surgical scars contribute to the #1 postoperative problem experienced after surgery and it’s called Chronic Post Surgical Pain (CPSP) or Persistent Postoperative Persistent Pain (PPP). CPSP is pain lasting more than 3 to 6 months after surgery. This postoperative pain differs in quality and location from any pain experienced before surgery.

    Whether it’s breast augmentation or reduction, mastectomy, any type of surgery, or the removal of deep moles, SRT helps reduce pain and fade the marks left by surgical procedures, promoting smoother skin.


    Facial Scars: From Trauma or Surgery

    SRT targets these scars, restoring skin integrity and enhancing your natural beauty.


    C-Section and Abdominal Scars

    The miracle of childbirth leaves behind c-section scars. SRT aids in reducing their appearance, improves blood flow and releases unwanted tension around the scar.

    Is SRT Painful?

    Not at all! SRT is non-invasive and painless. Most individuals find the treatment relaxing and comfortable. You will find that Irvine Acupuncture’s sessions are soothing and flexible. We strive to maximize your comfort during your treatment. Our expert acupuncturists will tailor each treatment to your individual needs.

    How Many Sessions Are Needed For Visible Results?

    The number of visits varies based on scar type and individual response. However, noticeable improvements can often be seen after a few therapies. It is imperative to be patient and to realize that everyone responds differently to the treatment.

    Are There Any Side Effects With SRT?

    SRT is a safe procedure with minimal to no side effects. Some might experience mild redness or tingling, which subsides quickly. Even so, it is important to note that SRT does not provide an immediate cure for scars. Results may not be permanent and may take multiple appointments.

    Can SRT Be Combined With Other Skincare Treatments?

    Absolutely! SRT works well alongside other skincare routines or treatments to enhance their effectiveness. SRT improves skin texture and reduces scar visibility when used in conjunction with creams, serums, or professional skin care procedures. With this combination, your skincare regimen will be enhanced.

    Is There Any Downtime After SRT Sessions?

    No, there’s no downtime with SRT. You can return to your regular activities immediately after the session. In some cases, you may experience some redness and a slight tingling sensation for a few hours after the session. This will go away on its own.
