What Does Laser Scar Revision Treatment Do?
Scars appear as the result of the skin’s healing response, leaving behind fibrotic tissue due to irregular collagen formation.
There are different types of scars including:
- Keloid Scars
Your scar revision treatment depends on the type of scar you’re experiencing. Treatments range from topical creams for mild scarring to grafting in the case of larger traumatic scars. Laser scar revision treatment is an effective method for treating a wide range of scars. It improves skin texture and pigment for a healthier, radiant complexion.
Laser scar removal or reduction is a common treatment we perform to help you look to the future with beautiful skin. There are a few types of skin laser treatments available: laser resurfacing, fractionated laser resurfacing, and non-ablative laser resurfacing. We also perform laser scar revision to correct the appearance of bothersome stretch marks.
This treatment utilizes a high-powered laser to gently extract layers of the scar until it has faded. Laser technology also penetrates the skin’s middle layers to promote a tighter and softer canvas.
Fractionated Laser Resurfacing
This therapy uses tiny beams of light that penetrate deep into the skin. Hundreds of microscopic channels stimulate the body’s natural healing process and refreshing collagen production: the skin’s main structural protein.
Laser Resurfacing for Stretch Marks
Stretch marks are the result of a rapid growth or compression of a certain area. These bothersome scars form as elastin and collagen become ruptured when the skin expands or shrinks abruptly. Many people develop stretch marks after a drastic weight gain or loss, after growth spurts during puberty, or if women become pregnant. Laser therapy can safely and effectively correct stretch marks by either resurfacing newer, healthier layers of skin or by stimulating the skin’s production of collagen to repair it on a cellular level. With an optimal treatment plan, we can help you reclaim a radiant, even skin tone.
How Are Different Scars Treated?
For acne and some surgical scars, fractional skin resurfacing can effectively treat concerns with both texture and pigment. Fractional ablative laser resurfacing has been proven to effectively treat scars caused by more severe injuries or trauma to the skin. This treatment also provides consistent and significant functional improvement, as well as measurable cosmetic benefits.
