What Are Scars?
Many people seek treatment to improve scars because they can seriously reduce one’s quality of life. Scar tissue affects the way your skin looks and feels, and may be sensitive, painful, or itchy as well. Scarring can result from injuries due to accident, surgery, or diseases such as acne. It occurs during the natural healing process when the new tissue your body creates isn’t exactly the same or as good as what was there before.
Different scars are treated in different ways; some just need to be blended into surrounding skin to improve the appearance, while others need more aggressive treatment with lasers or similar forms of energy that will remove scar tissue and help the body create skin of higher quality. Scars may be treated with chemical peels or injectable fillers, dermabrasion, microneedle therapy, nonablative laser therapy, and ablative laser therapy or fractional radiofrequency therapy.
What Is Laser Scar Remodeling?
Laser Scar Remodeling is a way of treating scars, by encouraging the body's natural healing mechanisms so that the damaged scar tissue is remodeled with healthy tissue.
How Does Laser Scar Remodeling Work?
Extremely small pulses of laser energy (smaller than the head of a pin/needle) are shot into the skin. The energy causes a small and controlled pocket of damage. This controlled damage stimulates your body’s natural response to create more and healthy tissue and collagen. While it may seem counter intuitive to damage already damaged skin, the healing response triggered by this controlled damage usually creates dramatic improvement to the appearance, texture and flexibility of the scarred tissue.
