Reduce the Look of Scars with Laser Scar Revision*
Successful laser scar revision can reduce the appearance of a number of types of scars by 50 to 80 percent*.
Three types of common scarring that respond well to laser scar revision are the following:
- Keloid scarring appears as firm, raised, and discolored areas that spread beyond the initial wound over time.
- Hypertrophic scarring appears as firm, raised, and lightly discolored scars that remain within the area of the initial damage.
- Atrophic scarring is commonly caused by acne or other skin conditions that create small pockets or pitting in the skin.
Laser scar revision uses a laser to vaporize and remove layers of skin within the scar to induce the body to replace it with healthy skin cells, reducing the appearance of the scar*.
Treatment can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour depending on the type and severity of the scarring*. Typically, the laser is used to target deeper layers of skin to lessen the appearance of scarring from the inside out. The procedure is performed with local anesthetic, which allows you to return to normal activities almost immediately with no downtime.
Results can be seen immediately and continue to improve over time as the body replaces the vaporized skin cells*.
Is Laser Scar Revision for You?
Although most people have scars, some are more able to be hidden than others, which can cause a person to be self-conscious. Those who have had severe acne may have scarring over a large portion of the face or other areas. Laser scar revision can lessen the appearance of a variety of types of scars up to 80 percent and in some cases make them nearly invisible.
Laser scar revision also triggers the body to replace the vaporized scar tissue with healthy skin cells, which can continue to lessen the appearance of scars over time*. Laser scar revision is for anyone who wants to reduce the look of any type of scarring, improve their appearance, and improve self-confidence.
