What is Laser Scar Removal?
Laser scar removal is a scar revision treatment that uses laser energy to carefully eliminate scar tissue and reduce the size and appearance of scars. For many people, scars are a cosmetic concern that they would like to address. Scar treatment can be effective on scars of any size and age, whether old, new, large or small. However, laser scar removal is often most effective when scars are newer and smaller. We specialize in a number of laser scar removal techniques so that we can use the type of laser treatment that is best suited for your skin type. These techniques include both non-ablative and IPL laser treatments.
How Much Does Laser Scar Removal Cost?
The cost of laser scar removal will vary based on your unique needs and treatment goals. During your consultation, we take many things into consideration to design a personalized treatment plan that will optimize your results and treatment experience. Once this treatment plan is determined, we will be able to provide you with a clear breakdown of the costs associated with your laser scar removal treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the Laser Scar Removal Procedure?
Before a laser scar removal treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort that may occur during treatment. Then, we will carefully deliver laser energy to the desired treatment area using the laser that best matches your skin type and treatment goals. This process removes scar tissue layer by layer, while also stimulating collagen production in the skin underneath for added benefits. A laser scar removal treatment typically only takes about an hour to perform, but the treatment time can vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Laser Scar Removal?
The results from laser scar removal will be visible immediately after treatment. These results may improve slightly as collagen takes effect in the skin. However, multiple laser scar removal sessions are often necessary to achieve the desired results. Men and women with larger or darker scars will have to receive more treatments than those with smaller or lighter scars.
What is the Recovery Period Like Following Laser Scar Removal?
Laser scar removal requires little to no downtime, making it a great option if you are looking to diminish the appearance of a scar. You may experience redness or sensitivity in the treatment area for a few days following your treatment, but this should not limit you from returning to work and other normal activities. It is important to protect the treatment area from sunlight and other irritants after treatment because the skin will be especially sensitive until it heals completely.
