While it is obvious that scars can impact your appearance, what may not be so obvious is the impact their presence can have on the self-esteem. This is especially true if the scars are on the face. If you are in this situation and wish to be rid of your scars, you should have a conversation with our medical team about laser scar removal.
Of the things that cause scarring to the face, acne is one of the most common. While nearly everyone has had at least a mild case of it at some point, not everyone has had it to the point that they were at risk for developing scars. If your acne is not brought under control, it can lead to cystic acne, which is when the scars develop. Scars that are present as a result of some sort of trauma or surgery can be removed with laser scar removal as well.
For whatever reason that you’ve developed scars, scar removal can restore your appearance by giving your skin a more even tone and smooth texture. Removing the scars can also have a positive effect by helping to eliminate these imperfections that hurt the self-esteem.
Laser scar removal is one of the most widely used methods for getting rid of scars. During the procedure, pulses of laser light will target your scarring via a specialized device. This allows the body’s healing processes to kick in as your skin absorbs the energy, producing new skin tissue that is free from the scarring. The energy that is generated as part of the treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. These are substances that give your skin its fullness and can help even out the areas that had indentations from scarring. Laser scar removal can be done in the comfort of our office and does not require any downtime, so you can return to your normal activities afterwards.
For more information on the laser scar removal procedure, you can contact our office at New England Cosmetic Surgery and Laser Center to schedule a consultation. Our medical team will examine your skin and medical history to determine if this treatment is right for you. If you are a good candidate for the treatment, you can look forward to erasing those unwanted scars! Contact us today to make an appointment in Weymouth!
