Laser treatment for the Scarring consequences.
The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times allow the psychological impact of scar revision treatments to be realized much sooner by patients.
Harnessing the Medical Power of Light
Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. Er:YAG skin resurfacing is used for gentle ablation of scar tissue and activation of collagen remodeling. Acne scars, in particular, respond well to Er:YAG treatments. For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength show further improvement in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc.0

What if I have acne scars?
The laser is ideal for mild scar revision. It safely and effectively penetrates the skin for gentle resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve your skin’s texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled by the practitioner. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below.
What can I expect from the treatment?
Each person is different but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following treatment, you may experience some redness or swelling that will diminish after a few hours. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the treatment. It is best to avoid direct sun for a few days following treatment and to apply sunscreen.
