Minimizing the Appearance of Scars

laser_scar_removalThe reality of today’s world is that image does matter. Over the last ten years the idea of one’s community and network has expanded beyond close-knit family and friends. You have one single chance to make a first impression, so it only benefits you to strive to look your best.

Traumatic events like auto mobile accidents and surgery; or something like chronic acne can leave scars that last a lifetime. You may find yourself in a predicament where cocoa butter and skin creams will never get the job done. At that point laser scar removal will get the results you want.

Laser scar removal minimizes the appearance of scars from 50%-80% by vaporizing the top layer of scar tissues and stimulating collagen beneath the epidermis. The laser is applied directly to the scarred area; exposing new, smoother, softer skin. The procedure is ideal for the treatment of acne, keloid, and hypertrophic scarring. Aside from the obvious benefits of appearance reduction, it also acts to prevent the scar tissue from resurfacing.

Unlike some more invasive surgeries, this procedure can be done on an outpatient basis within 30 minutes to an hour. Luckily there is zero downtime, and it’s virtually painless. Scars can be removed from any part of the body and the procedure can be done on any skin type. However, patients are not recommended to utilize laser scar removal for treatment of keloids. That type of scar tissue has a high tendency to resurface. However, every patient should apply extra sunscreen to the area that’s been treated, to optimize on the best results.
