Laser Scar Removal
Laser scar removal is a cosmetic procedure to remove your scars. If you are tired of your scars, scar removal using lasers might be right for you. After the procedure, you won’t need makeup or clothing to cover your unsightly scars. This can be a great boost to your self-confidence, allowing you to shine.
Many things, from acne and surgery to burns or accidents can leave you with an ugly scar. Although they are your body’s natural response to such injuries, they can sure make you self-conscious. There are three main types of scars; lasers have been used effectively against all three. Laser scar removal can permanently reduce your scarring. Once the initial treatments are over, you won’t have to keep coming back to the office for return visits. Miracle creams and serums may promise to instantly dissolve your scars, but scar removal using lasers will actually deliver the results.
For most scars, laser scar removal is safe and effective. Even facial scars that are hard to hide can be treated with lasers. After the procedure, you’ll need just a few days for the treated area to heal. This is a much less invasive option than other cosmetic procedures involving knives. Plus, using lasers to treat scars has a very low risk of complications or side effects.
During the procedure itself, a doctor will target a laser beam at your skin. The laser device emits pulses of laser light. Each pulse will come with a slight stinging sensation, like a rubber band snapping against your skin. Afterwards, your skin will be a little red and swollen. You can return to your normal activities immediately, but should avoid the sun for about a month.
Although most scarring can be treated with laser scar removal, you should have realistic expectations before undergoing the procedure. Having you scarring treated with a laser usually reduces the scar’s appearance by 50 to 80 percent over the course of a few treatments. This varies from person to person, of course. It also depends on the severity of the scar, as well as the type of laser used and how well the settings are calibrated. Larger scars take longer to treat, while small ones can be treated in just a few minutes.
If you are deciding whether laser scar removal is right for you, consult a doctor who has been trained in the use of using lasers to remove scars. For the most successful procedure, choose a reputable doctor. Your skin and scar type must be taken into account when choosing the laser type and changing the settings. An experienced doctor will be able to choose a laser and set it for the best results possible on your scar, while helping to lower your risk of side effects.

FAQ'S About Laser Scar Removal
During laser scar removal, a laser beam will be targeted at the scarred area. This can lead to dramatic results, as the laser takes away layers of skin to reveal healthy skin and smooth the area with the scar. There are several different kinds of lasers that are commonly used for scar removal, but all of them work in basically the same manner. These lasers are also used for laser skin resurfacing, which is essentially the same procedure without the goal of removing scarring. The laser chosen for your procedure will depend on your skin type and the kind of scarring you want removed. More severe scarring will require the use of more intense lasers, but this also increases the risk of side effects. Your doctor will determine which laser is right for your individual situation. Different types of lasers penetrate the skin to different depths.
For the laser scar removal procedure, you will wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser beams. After the skin is treated with an anesthetic and a cooling gel, you may be given pain medication. It will be a little uncomfortable and you may feel a stinging sensation, but it should not be very painful. The laser will be focused specifically on the scar, and should not affect the surrounding skin at all.
People want laser scar removal because they are tired of looking at their scarring. Scars can seem ugly and hard to hide. In fact, most people would choose not to have their scars if given the choice. However, scarring is unavoidable, because it’s the body’s natural response to injury. If you have assumed that your scarring is here to stay, or tried miracle creams to magically get rid of them, you may be interested in laser scar removal. Using lasers to remove scarring is an effective way to minimize the appearance of scars you once assumed were permanent.
If you have acne scarring, then you understand the benefit of getting rid of your scars. You’re in luck, using lasers to remove a scarring is particularly effective against scars caused by acne. This type of scarring is not usually as raised as other scars, making them easier to remove. This is good news if you are one of the millions of people who have suffered from acne. Permanent scarring caused by acne can be an everyday reminder to acne sufferers. Plus, these scars are usually on the face, making it difficult to hide them or cover them up.
Laser scar removal is useful not only on acne scarring, but also other scars caused by falls, accidents, or burns. Even the redness associated with many raised scars can be reduced; several laser types actually target the hemoglobin that turns these scars pink or red. Laser treatments can remove the physical scar, helping you get rid of painful memories of the scar’s cause.
With your scars minimized or removed, you can go without heavy makeup or specially chosen clothing to cover up your scarring. If you are used to choosing your makeup based on what will hide your scarring, then you understand the freedom that can come from scar removal. While scarring on any area of the body can be hard to hide, those on the face are especially difficult to cover without layers of makeup. After laser scar removal you’ll be able to show off your natural skin. If you have scarring elsewhere on your body, you’ll be able to wear more revealing clothing without the worry about whether your scar is showing.
If you are considering laser scar removal, you’ll have several options to choose from. There are many different lasers used, although they work in several common ways. The laser technologies vary in how much they can penetrate your skin. Those with longer wavelengths can penetrate the skin deeper. If you have severe scarring, you’ll need a more intense laser or more treatments. All of your laser options are very precise, with a short recover time after the treatment.
Your choices for laser technology include nonablative lasers, such as pulse dye lasers and N-Lite lasers, which cause collagen to form under the skin. This can reduce redness and fill in indented scars. Other lasers, called ablative lasers, are most often used when you have a raised scar. These vaporize the top layer of skin, exposing younger and healthier skin. They work in much the same way as sanding a tabletop. The laser types offered include CO2, Erbium, and Nd:YAG lasers. CO2 was one of the earliest laser types successfully used for scar reduction, but it has fallen out of favor for newly developed technologies. Still, many doctors keep using these older lasers; make sure you understand the laser technology offered by your doctor. These lasers are offered under many different brand names, so ask your doctor about the specific lasers offered, as not all laser scar removal providers use all of the possible types of lasers.
To choose the right laser for your situation, your doctor will evaluate the type and severity of your scar. There are three main types of scars: keloid, atrophic, and hypertrophic. All three can be treated using laser scar removal, but different types of lasers are developed to work on different kinds of scars.
In order for your treatment to be successful, choose a doctor who understands the differences between the lasers and can select the right one for your situation, since each laser type is not equally effective on all types of scarring.
Once your initial treatment is over, you’ll also have the option of addition treatments to further improve the appearance of the scar. After any number of treatments, you can discontinue laser scar removal treatments if you find that your scar has achieved a satisfactory appearance. Most patients undergo three to six procedures, although you may need as many as eight, particularly if you have severe scarring. Eventually you will begin to see diminishing results from additional treatments.
Laser scar removal has a low risk of complications, but like any medical procedure, you do have some risks. Most people experience impressive results with laser scar removal, but it’s still important to understand the risks you are taking when undergoing the procedure. To avoid these complications, choose an experienced laser scar removal clinic, and properly care for the treated area after the procedure. Most side effects are temporary, although vary rarely, you could experience long-lasting or permanent complications. Here are a few of these risks:
- Long lasting erythema. This redness and swelling of the skin is to be expected in the first day or two after your treatment. However, in rare cases it can persist for months. It could eventually turn into a permanent change in your skin color in the treated area. It is most common after the use of CO2 lasers, but even then it is quite rare.
- Hyperpigmentation (darkening of the skin) or hypopigmentation (lightening of the skin). This is most common after treatments using high-powered lasers necessary to penetrate deep into the skin, as when the procedure is performed on severe scars. To avoid making the condition worse, avoid the sun after your treatment, and always wear sun block. Another reason the skin may be lighter after your treatment is because the laser removes the top layers of skin, which may be tanned. If this is the reason for the lightening, you should regard it as a benefit, as the skin that is exposed is younger and healthier.
- Scarring. As with any other procedure that involves the removal of the skin’s surface, scarring is a risk. Rarely, the skin may blister and then scar. During the recovery period, do not pick or scratch at the treated area. This increases the risk of scarring. To reduce the risk of scarring due to infection, use an antibiotic ointment. In fact, your doctor may prescribe one for this purpose.
To reduce your risks when undergoing laser scar removal, find a doctor with a good track record. Your safety should come before the cost of the procedure when comparing different doctors. Your doctor should be more concerned about your safety than about pressuring you to sign up for the procedure. Also consider the recommended course of treatment; more aggressive treatments may increase your chance of complications. A well-trained doctor will be able to help you lower your risk. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully, especially concerning post-treatment care of the treated area.
