Patients with concerns such as surgical or acne scars may also want to ask their doctor if laser therapies can help.
Laser treatments for scars
Scars are a sign of past trauma to the skin. In many cases where small injuries occur, scarring is often not left behind, though larger areas may leave behind tell-tale signs. While this isn’t too concerning when the scar is easily disguised with clothing, patients with scars on the facial skin may find themselves embarrassed or self-conscious about their appearance due to the scars present. In cases like this, laser treatments can be used to minimize the scarring and allow it to fade and blend in better with the skin. At the same time, laser skin rejuvenation services can also address pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and sun damage, allowing patients to address several issues with a single treatment.
