Laser Scar Reduction

Laser Scar Reduction

Laser scar removal with Icon™ delivers pulses of laser light into the skin to target and break down scar tissue. It is fast, easy and provides remarkable results you will be happy to show off. With the Icon™ laser, scars are treated by increasing collagen and elastin production that, over time, either fills in the depressed scars or smooths out the raised scars. In addition to reducing scar tissue’s appearance, the laser stimulates the formation of new tissue.

Scar removal with the Icon™ fractional laser system is fast, simple, and effective. Fractional laser technology has minimal downtime and is suitable for any skin type. By using fractional laser light, scar tissue is broken down and new cells are stimulated to grow. It is effective in treating scars of all severity levels.

Laser Scar Reduction

What is it: Laser treatment for scars uses concentrated light to target and break down scar tissue. The light energy from the laser helps to stimulate collagen production and allows your body to create new, smoother skin . As a result, the scar becomes less visible and blends in with the surrounding skin. Laser scar reduction works on most types of scarring, including surgical scars, acne scars, and scars caused by injury.

What to expect during your consultation:

During the consultation, we will do a detailed assessment of the scar and provide you with a possible treatment planOur goal and obligation is to deliver results.  Therefore, unless we can help you achieve substantial improvement, we will recommend against starting the treatment.

The type of lasers that we use:

The type of laser being used will depend on the skin tone and the type of scarring that we have to address. For example, for acne scarring, we use the Aerolase® 650 microsecond laser. For surgical scars, we normally use a 1540 fractional laser. Each of these lasers have their own unique capabilities and purposes. It is our job to prescribe the right solution, based on our client’s particular situation.

What kind of progress you can expect.

In most cases, with mild to moderate scarring, even after one session, there will be visible reduction of the scar and a significant improvement in its coloration. With severe scarring, the scar could diminish in its severity and be easier to conceal, but the expectations should be modest.

The cost of treatments:

The cost per treatment usually ranges between $250 to $500, depending on the size of the area. In rare situations, it could be slightly higher, due to the complexity and size of the area being treated.

Possible Side Effects:

The most common side effect is redness and swelling of the treated area. Other potential side effects include itching, blistering, and infection. Most side effects are mild and resolve within a few days.
