Patients who are self-conscious about the appearance of scarring on their skin may be unsure about the options that are available to them. Scars from past trauma, surgeries, or even acne can leave behind unsightly marks on the skin, and may be difficult to disguise with clothing or makeup. When patients of the Huntington Station, NY area are struggling with these concerns, they can work with our board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee, to learn more about the benefits of laser therapies to reduce or even eliminate scarring on the skin.
How can laser treatments address scarring?
Scarring occurs when there has been trauma to the skin, either a cut or even an acne blemish. This can not only create a mark on the skin, but might also result in divots, such as ice pick acne scars. Fortunately, with the help of a professional and technologically-advanced treatments such as laser therapies, patients can fade away these scars quickly and effectively.
