Laser Scar Removal

Laser scar removal

Scarring due to skin trauma and acne are common problems for many patients. As the body heals from these issues, fibrotic tissue replaces the injured skin and forms a scar. The type of injury, depth, location and other circumstances all affect the resulting scar severity.

Laser scar removal can reduce the excess pigment often found in scars so that they blend in more easily with the surrounding skin. Since lasers can also stimulate collagen production, laser treatment can reduce the appearance of scars by helping to even out the physical inconsistencies in scarred skin.
