How does the laser work?
It is a completely noninvasive treatment that removes or reduces the appearance of scars without surgery, incisions, or anesthesia. The laser works by sending beams of laser energy set at specific wavelengths into the layers of your skin.
The unique combination of laser energies target scar tissue without damaging your surrounding, healthy skin. This process helps remove your scars without leaving another scar or other skin imperfections behind.
It also stimulates your body to rebuild the matrix of collagen fibers that maintain the healthy elasticity of your skin. The result is fresh, smooth, and rejuvenated skin.
Who is a good candidate for laser scar therapy?
Laser scar removal safely works on all skin types, including tanned and darker skin tones. If you have scars from acne or other skin conditions, it may help reveal smoother skin on your face, chest, neck, or body.
Is laser treatment painful?
The laser delivers laser energy in pulses or short flashes. These pulses aren’t painful, but some patients say it feels like a rubber band snapping against your skin.
What should I expect from scar removal treatment?
The process begins with a free scar removal consultation with one of the doctors. They ask about your concerns and goals and then work with you to create an individualized scar therapy plan.
If you decide laser scar therapy is right for you, they first test the laser on a small patch of skin to make sure you don’t have a reaction.
The amount of time it takes to finish a treatment depends on the size and complexity of your scars, but most sessions take about 15-30 minutes.
What happens after a laser scar therapy treatment?
The laser treatment requires no downtime for recovery, so you can return to work or normal activities immediately after you leave the office.
Before you go, your doctor may recommend physician-grade skin care products to enhance the results of your treatment.
