What is Laser Scar Treatment?
Laser scar treatment is a type of skin resurfacing that helps certain types of scars blend better with the surrounding skin. The laser energy removes a layer of skin, and this process stimulates the production of collagen fibers. The collagen fibers are constructed in a manner that makes the area blend with surrounding better than the original scar.
Benefits of Laser Scar Treatment
- Helps scars blend better with surrounding skin
- Treatment takes very little time
- Comfortable, well-tolerated procedure
What Can I Expect from Laser Scar Treatment?
The laser energy is applied to the scar in short bursts, and you may feel a sensation that is similar to the snap of a rubber band. After the treatment, the scar has a smoother appearance. As the collagen fibers take hold, the scar begins to look similar to the surrounding skin. This makes the scar less noticeable.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Scar Treatment?
Laser scar treatment may help with:
- Raised, hard scars (keloids)
- Indentation scars that are caused by acne and other skin conditions (atrophic scars)
- Pink scars that are slightly raised from the skin (hypertrophic scars)
If you have one of these types of scars, you may be a good candidate for laser scar treatment. A consultation with Dr. Newall is the best way to know if laser scar treatment is right for you.
