Laser – Scar Treatment

Why Do Scars Form?

Skin scars form due to and overactive response of the healing mechanism of the skin. Rather than simply producing a small and appropriate amount of scar tissue at a traumatic or surgical site, the body sometimes overreacts by producing excessive amount of scar tissue. This overreaction can lead to thick, red, and uncomfortable scarring.

How Does The Laser Treatment Work?

Unlike surgery, laser scar treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the skin’s support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin – the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin.
