What is Laser Scar Reduction?
Scars cannot be completely removed, but these cosmetic concerns can be treated to help the tissue blend better with the surrounding skin. State-of-the-art laser treatments remove the layer of skin that gives your scar an uneven appearance and coloration that does not match the surrounding skin.
Benefits of Laser Scar Reduction
Laser scar resurfacing takes less than one hour for most scars, and no downtime is needed. You may need multiple treatments to achieve the best results.
How Does Laser Scar Reduction Work?
Omega MedSpa offers laser scar reduction using laser skin resurfacing. Scars develop because the body produces an erratic pattern of collagen fibers to close a wound. Therefore, scars have rough textures and different colorations compared to the surrounding skin. By removing the layers of the scar tissue, laser skin resurfacing allows your body to produce healthier skin cells that mask the scar better.
Am I a Candidate for Laser Scar Reduction?
If you have darker skin, laser skin resurfacing may not be your best option for scar revision. Your certified laser technician may recommend an alternative technique which gives “laser results” for darker skin tones.
What to Expect from Laser Scar Reduction
Laser scar resurfacing is performed with an advanced laser system that allows for the precise application of high intensity light (laser energy). The laser removes the damaged layer of skin to give the scar a more even texture and appearance. Although your scar will not completely disappear, your scar may be less obvious.
How Long is the Recovery After a Laser Scar Reduction Treatment?
Laser scar resurfacing does not require a recovery period. You may need to protect the area from sunlight until the skin is completely healed.
