Laser Scar Removal

Erase the appearance of unwanted scars with this fast, easy, and effective laser scar removal treatment.

Why Get Laser Scar Removal?

Scars are often a fact of life, and having one is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. However, for some of us, our scars can detract from the look we’d like to achieve, or they can remind us of the painful experience from which they originate. Either factor can leave us wishing there was a way to reduce the visibility of our scars. No matter why you may wish to remove your scar, laser scar removal can be a great option.

 

How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?

Laser scar removal harnesses the power of light to help reduce the appearance of scar tissue. Pulses of laser light are gently delivered to the treatment area to break down the scar tissue and help generate healthy new skin. After recovery, your skin should appear much healthier and smoother.

What To Expect From Laser Scar Removal

Before your laser scar removal begins, your aesthetician will administer a local anesthetic to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. You may also receive an oral sedative to help with nerves. During your treatment, you can expect to feel some mild discomfort. Treatment should last between five and 30 minutes.

There are few side effects and all are relatively harmless. Patients can expect redness, similar to a sunburn, as well as minimal swelling, tightness, and light peeling. These effects typically disappear within a few days and depend on factors like skin type, condition, and depth of treatment.

Your aesthetician will administer a series of three to six treatments every four to six weeks. Patients may notice an immediate glow after treatment, but more noticeable results may begin appearing around two to four weeks and can last as long as six months.
