Laser Scar Removal
When you are left with a scar on your skin from surgery or traumatic injury. It’s common to feel like these flaws on your skin will cause unwanted memories or attention and it can be difficult to cover up. We now have the technology to remove surgical scars with just a few laser treatments.
How does it work?
We use the ICON 1540 laser for our scar removal treatments. This laser is FDA approved and clinically proven to reduce the appearance of scar tissue without harming the surrounding skin and treatment area. As the laser penetrates the skin, it will initiate the body’s natural healing process. As the skin heals, new collagen is produced which improves the texture of the skin, resulting in scar fading.
When will I see the results?
With our medical grade ICON Laser system, you can have a less visible scar after just one treatment. Patients will begin to notice visible improvement to their scar a few days after their first laser scar removal treatment. Followed by a continuous improvement over the next 3-10 days.
How many treatments will I need?
Laser scar removal treatments need to be performed on a regular basis and we recommend a minimum of 3-4 treatments which have to be 2-4 weeks apart.
What to expect during your treatment
After your consultation we will provide you with a topical numbing cream. When you arrive for your scar removal treatment, please arrive with a cleansed face and be sure to apply the topical numbing cream at least 1 hour before your appointment. During the treatment, multiple applications of the laser are applied directly to your skin. In some cases a second pass is done.
Scar Removal treatments can take anywhere between 10-20 minutes to perform depending on the size of the treatment area.
Does Laser Scar Removal Hurt?
You will feel mild discomfort during your treatment. Which is why we provide you with a topical numbing cream. The laser has a built in cooling mechanism in the hand-piece and Ice Packs can be provided during the treatment upon request and to further reduce any discomfort, we apply ice rollers to the skin during the treatment.
When can I resume normal activity?
After your treatment, you will be able to resume your day as normal. Please keep in mind that you will need to protect the skin from sun damage at all times. Some patients may experience minimal side effects, such as redness or slight swelling in the treated area. The side effects will generally subside within 12 hours and we will be right by your side during the healing and aftercare process.
