But not all scars need surgery, and laser therapies may be appropriate for you!

What is laser scar removal?

Laser scar removal is a laser therapy that can help to reduce the appearance of scars. The laser energy is delivered directly to the skin where it stimulates the production of new collagen. This helps improve the overall appearance of the scar, making it less visible–and less embarrassing!

What are the benefits of laser scar treatment?

Laser therapies for scar reduction or removal are popular for a reason. They offer many advantages to our patients, including:

  • Quick and easy treatment sessions
  • No downtime or recovery time needed
  • Safe and effective for all skin types
  • Can be used on both new and old scars

How is laser scar treatment performed?

The laser scar treatment is a quick, easy, in-office procedure. The laser energy is administered to the treatment area after a topical numbing cream anesthetizes the skin to reduce discomfort. The laser device emits laser energy deep within, healing the skin and improving its natural production of collagen and elastin. Over time, the scar will fade away and become much less noticeable! Patients may need one or several appointments, depending on the severity of the scar and the reaction that occurs after a single treatment session.

How much do laser therapies cost?

There are several factors involved in quoting a cost for laser scar removal, so it is best to arrange a consultation with the doctor for more accurate information.
