Laser scar removal surgery is a great option for surgical scars on any area of the body.

How does it work?

This nonsurgical treatment option uses fractional Laser technology delivers pulses of laser light into the skin to target and break down scar tissue without causing harm to the surrounding skin.

Once the energy is absorbed into the skin your body’s natural healing process will begin creating new, healthy skin in the area that was treated. Over the next few weeks you will see continued improvement in both the coloration and smoothness of your skin

This will help generate healthy new tissue to form in its place that is smoother and more even in skin tone.

Why choose laser, and not surgery?

Laser scar removal is a more comfortable alternative to surgery with amazing results:

  • Little to no downtime
  • Mild discomfort
  • Excellent results: It is appropriate for all surgical scars on 
any area of the body, including the face.

Expect to see the scar lighten in color and become more even in texture.

Unlike surgical scar treatment that requires incisions, laser scar removal uses fractional laser light to break down scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue production. The scar will become more even in color and texture and it will blend more naturally into the surrounding skin.

The advantage we’re offering to our clients is a noninvasive procedure that can take as little as 20 minutes per treatment to perform, yet can deliver dramatic improvement in the appearance of scars, to a point where they are barely visible.

Laser Scar Removal: the day of treatment:

At least 4 weeks prior to your appointment, discontinue unprotected sun exposure, tanning beds and tanning creams on the areas receiving treatment.

The treatment will begin with the provider guiding the IconTM handpiece over the treatment area. During this process, the laser will be delivering energy into your skin.

The treatment can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. 
Typically, you may resume your daily activities immediately 
following the treatment session.

Clients who undergo the procedure typically resume their normal activities immediately following the session, making this a simple procedure that fits today’s busy lifestyles.

You may feel nothing during treatment or mild discomfort. Follow up treatment sessions should be scheduled 3-6 weeks apart if needed. Most people require 4 to 8 treatment sessions for desired results depending on the scar.

What to expect after your scar removal surgery.

You may experience temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site which should last only a few days. Post treatment instructions will be provided to manage pain if necessary. You may also experience some redness and/or swelling a few days after at the treatment site but this typically resolves by the third day.

Gentle cleansing and use of non-irritating cosmetics are permitted after treatment.

Avoid sun exposure on the treated area and use a sunscreen SPF 45 or greater at all times throughout the course of treatment.
