Post-Surgical Scar Removal

Post-Surgical Scar Removal

What is it?

Post-Surgical Scar Removal often referred to as laser scar revision or laser scar removal, is a cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to reduce the appearance of scars that have formed as a result of surgery or injury. This type of treatment is particularly effective for improving the texture, color, and overall appearance of scars. It is commonly used for both surgical and traumatic scars.

How does it interact with skin?

The procedure uses specialized laser devices that emit energy of a specific wavelength. The laser energy is absorbed by the pigment in the scar tissue, as well as helps to break down the scar tissue and stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that is essential for healthy skin. By promoting the production of collagen, the laser helps to fill in the depressed or raised areas of the scar and improve its texture and color.

What’s the downtime?

Patients may experience redness, swelling, bleeding, and some discomfort after the procedure, but these effects are usually temporary. Downtime can range from 3-7 days depending on how aggressive the treatment is. It is important to follow post-treatment care instructions for optimal results.

How many treatments are needed?

Laser scar removal is not typically a one-time treatment but rather a series of sessions. The specific number of sessions required depends on the type of scar, its size, and how the individual’s skin responds to the treatment.
