How is Laser Scar Revision Performed?
Just like you would expect, laser scar revision uses the help of lasers to erase your scars. Several sessions are usually needed to remove scars completely. The procedure improves imperfections and overall skin tone using bursts of focused laser energy that peel away affected cells and create controlled micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. This engages the body’s natural healing response, which ramps up collagen production and rebuilds new skin cells to heal and nurture the treatment area. Fewer sessions are needed for minor scars whereas more sessions are necessary to completely remove complex, severe scars.
Preparing for Your Laser Scar Revision ProcedurePreparing for your laser scar revision procedure is simple. Simply make a point to clean the scar and skin surrounding it with a gentle soap and pat it dry. Do not apply any cosmetics or creams to the area the day of your appointment.
