Scars are often the result of physical trauma, but they can take an emotional toll on patients long after their wounds have healed.
Many people try covering scars with clothes or makeup, but still feel uncomfortable in social situations, or going to the beach.
Laser scar treatment offers patients a chance to look and feel their best and return to activities that their scars may have prevented them from taking part in.
Laser scar revision treatment offers many benefits:
- Little to no recovery time.
- Minimal pain and discomfort.
- Non-invasive treatment that does not require a hospital stay.
How does laser scar revision work?
Unlike surgical procedures, laser scar treatment employs quick pulses of laser light to target sub-layers of your skin. Your body’s natural ability to heal helps remove damaged tissue and replaces it with new collagen and elastin.
These are the key ingredients to regaining normal-looking skin at scar sites.
What scars can be treated by lasers?
Laser scar revision treatment has been approved by federal officials for use on both surgical and acne scars. All parts of the body can be treated.
Who can receive laser scar treatment?
Laser scar treatment can be performed on various skin types, including patients with either very fair or very dark skin.
How long are treatments?
Typically, laser scar treatment can be done in about 30 minutes, but treatment duration depends on the size of the area being treated. Every patient is different. Our team at New England Cosmetic will meet with you prior to your procedure to discuss details and answer any questions you may have.
Does treatment hurt?
Most patients report they have minimal discomfort during laser scar revision treatment. At New England Cosmetic, we can discuss pain management techniques with you if your skin is sensitive to pain.
How many treatments do I need?
We find that most patients require between three and seven treatment sessions for the best aesthetic results. Again, the number and duration of treatments will vary from patient to patient.
How long is the recovery time?
Most patients can return to normal activity right after treatment.
Are there side effects?
Side effects include some swelling and redness where treatment has occurred, but these are temporary conditions that fade after a few days. Some patients may experience itching and blistering. Also, there is a risk that treated areas will lighten or darken.
But the vast majority of our patients leave happy with their treatments and report few if any major side effects.
If scars from surgery, accidents or severe acne are troubling you, and you want your skin restored to a more normal appearance, it may be time for you to consider laser scar revision treatments.
