Most kinds of scars can be removed using a PicoSure laser. At Solutions Laser Studio, we remove a wide range of different scars.
The PicoSure laser can help with: acne scarring, red scarring, brown scarring, white scarring, surgical scarring, raised scarring and inverted scarring.
Most areas on the face and body can be targeted with this scar removal laser.
Surgical scar removal is a serious surgery that requires significant recovery time.
After a surgical scar removal, patients often take some time to recover from the anesthesia and the surgery, often missing a great deal of time at work. With laser scar removal, there is almost no downtime.
In fact, the majority of patients are able to resume their normal routine after only a few hours and will miss no work.
The PicoSure laser sends very short light pulses into the scar tissue. These pulses cause a major photomechanical impact called the PressureWave.
This essentially means that the skin undergoes small shock waves that force it to make new collagen and elastin to replace the scarred tissue with healthy, newer tissue.
Laser scar removal usually takes place over several different sessions, with most patients noticing significant results after three sessions.
Each session lasts around 15 to 20 minutes, and sessions may be spaced several weeks or a month apart.
What Can You Expect After a Laser Scar Removal Treatment?
Most patients experience only very mild side effects. It is common to have some mild skin reddening, similar to what you would have with a minor sunburn.
The skin may feel warm to the touch for a short period after the laser scar removal treatment, but this typically goes away within only hours.*Individual Results May Vary
