Remove damaged skin cells and diminish scars
Laser therapy uses focused beams of light to treat damaged areas on the body. It can remove tumors and other growths, improve vision, stop hair loss, and treat pain. Laser therapy can also improve the appearance of scars.
Laser treatment for scars is an outpatient procedure. Your doctor repeatedly moves a laser wand over your skin to remove damaged skin cells and diminish scars.
These include: injury scars, burn marks, acne scars, dark spots, age spots, and other types of hyperpigmentation.
Stimulate New Skin Cells
Laser scar treatments don’t make a scar disappear. Instead, they’re designed to make a scar appear less noticeable. The body begins the process of repairing a wound after a skin injury.
A scab develops over the injury to protect it from germs, then eventually falls off. Sometimes, the skin underneath a scab is the same color as the rest of the body. However, depending on the depth of the injury, a scar often remains after a scab falls off. These scars may fade or become lighter with time.
When a scar becomes permanent, laser treatments can be used to remove the outer layer of the damaged skin’s surface. They basically smooth the skin to improve tone and appearance. These lasers are also used to target blood vessels in the scar tissue and reduce redness. They can also penetrate the skin’s surface to stimulate the production of new skin cells.
