If acne or surgical scars are causing you embarrassment or emotional distress, you’ll be happy to discover a scar treatment that doesn’t require painful, invasive surgery.
Laser scar removal can now be performed with fractional laser technology, a revolutionary approach for scar treatment as well as many other conditions.
How a Laser Scar Treatment Works
Laser scar removal uses fractional laser light to create micro-columns of coagulated tissue that extend deep into the dermis without ablating the epidermis.
This triggers a wound-healing process that replaces the disorganized, compacted scar tissue with healthy new tissue, greatly diminishing the appearance of the scar tissue. Advanced Contact Cooling protects the epidermis, promoting safer, more comfortable treatments.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of fractional lasers in reducing scars quickly with long-lasing results.
What to Expect
Laser scar removal is more comfortable than other options. Most people feel only minimal discomfort during the treatment, which can take as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Healing time is minimal so you don’t have to worry about downtime. Side effects are minor: temporary redness and swelling lasting only a few days. Laser scar treatments are suitable for all skin types, including very light or very dark skin.
While you will likely see significant improvement after your first treatment, long-lasting results will involve three or more treatments, depending on the nature and severity of the scar and your skin characteristics.
