Laser Scar Reduction
A scar is an unpleasant reminder of a healthy body process, created when your skinrepairs a wound caused by an accident, infection, inflammation, or surgery. Scars vary in shape and size. They may start out red and thick and fade over time, or turn flat, sunken, or lumpy - leading you to wonder about cosmetic procedures to eliminate them.
These days, skin laser technology has advanced to the point where much can be done to treat scars. Laser scar removal or reduction is a common procedure performed by our dermatologist at our clinic. With a laser, scars can be lessened significantly and possibly erased, depending on their severity. we offer fractional co2 laser therapy for the scars.
this precise laser therapy uses tiny beams of light that penetrate deeply into the skin. The result is dozens or even hundreds of microscopic holes where skin cells have been removed, surrounded by healthy skin. The holes help break down old skin cells while stimulating collagen production within the deeper skin layers. The surrounding healthy skin helps to quickly heal the damage done by the laser therapy, resulting in fresh, new skin cells.
- Lasers are more accurate than traditional surgical tools. Cuts can be made shorter and shallower. This causes less damage to the tissues.
- Laser therapy sessions are usually shorter than traditional surgeries. They can mostly be done on an outpatient basis. Patients don’t have to spend time in a recovery room or indoor ward. If general anesthesia is administered, it is usually used for a shorter time.
- Patients usually recover faster. They may have less swelling, complications, pain and scarring than with conventional surgeries.
- Laser scar removal reduces the appearance of scars by up to 70 percent
