Is Laser Scar Improvement right for me?
If you have scarring that does not fade on its own over time or causes you discomfort, laser treatments can be used to remove the damaged outer layer of skin, improving the coloration of the scar. Though considered safe, laser scar improvement might not be suitable for those who:
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have a history of abnormal scarring on the skin
- Are currently sick
- Had recent sun exposure or sunburns
The Beauty Benefits of Laser Scar Improvement
Scars can greatly affect our self-image and cause discomfort in many cases. Laser treatments are a reliable and relatively low-maintenance option for addressing the effects of a scar. Many individuals notice results after just one session, and continuous improvements up to a year later.
The results of laser scar treatment will depend on the type of laser being used, the severity of the scar, and the individual's skin type and condition. Once your laser treatment is complete, your skin texture and appearance will gradually improve over time. Some laser treatments may provide results that last for several months or years, while others may require more frequent maintenance treatments to maintain the desired results.

Prior to treatment, patients should avoid excess sun exposure, tanning beds, and the use of products containing retinoids or glycolic acid for 2 to 4 weeks. We also recommend not smoking for at least 2 weeks.
Be sure to discuss with your physician any medications being taken or health conditions that may interfere with this procedure.
