Improve The Appearance Of Scars With Laser Resurfacing
Unfortunately, scars are an inevitable part of life. Whether they are the result of surgery, injury, or a condition such as acne, they can cause embarrassment and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Scars form when an injury creates damage deep in the skin. The body will from new collagen fibers to mend the damage, and the build-up of these fibers results in a scar. Some scars can heal thicker or with a different texture or color that can really make it stand out from the rest of your skin. Laser scar revision improves the texture and color of the scar with minimal side effects and little to no downtime. If you have been hiding or camouflaging scars on your face or body, it’s time you do something to dramatically minimize their appearance with laser scar revision therapy!*
How our skin heals is completely unique to each individual. Laser scar revision is a great treatment for the following types of scars:
- Acne scars
- Hypertrophic (raised) scars
- Thick or red scars

Benefits Of Laser Scar Revision
Many patients seeking to improve the look of scars are concerned with the safety and efficacy of the laser treatments and the amount of time they will need for recovery. The truth is that advancements in laser technology have made laser scar treatments not only precise and fast, but also very effective in stimulating your body’s own healing capabilities.
Your laser scar treatment will generally take about 30 minutes and the treatments are virtually painless. Our laser workstation has a variety of adjustable settings that allow us to tailor the treatment to your specific needs and since it only emits light through a handpiece, does not require anesthesia. You will be able to go right back to your regular activities after your session, causing minimal disruption in your day-to-day life. The laser treatments can also enhance tone and texture, giving your skin a healthy glow.*
How It Works
The laser technology can be used on scars of varying lengths, colors, and thickness levels and is also safe to use on all skin types and tones. It works by emitting a light deep into the layers of the skin very precisely targeting the area of the scar in order to remove the damaged skin layer by layer. This happens while simultaneously heating the area prompting your body to produce collagen and regenerate. The upper layers of your skin will gradually be replaced with this new, fresh skin as the scar fades away. Depending on the size and type of the scar(s), several sessions may be needed to get the desired result.* Once you see the resulting healthy, smooth skin, you’ll wonder what took you so long to seek treatment in the first place!
