Benefits

The largest benefit of scar removal treatments is a reduction in the appearance of scars on the skin. The laser treatment can also increase collagen production in the body, allowing the skin to grow back healthier and stronger.

What To Expect After

After your scar removal treatment, there may be slight redness to the area. You may also experience mild tenderness, but this typically only lasts a day or two following the procedure. We may provide you with specific ointments to ensure proper recovery. It is also very important to avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process, which can take several weeks. However, there is no downtime following this procedure, and patients can resume normal activities immediately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR SCAR THERAPY?

A: The ideal candidate for scar removal or reduction has visible scars or melasma symptoms that they would like to reduce.

Q: HOW DO I PREPARE FOR SCAR THERAPY?

A: If you are preparing for scar removal or reduction, you may be required to stop using certain medications prior to treatment. It is also important to avoid direct sun exposure to the area being treated.

Q: WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE APPOINTMENT?

A: During your treatment, the Icon™1540 device will be placed on the targeted area. This delivers pulses of light energy that is often compared to the feeling of a rubber band snapping on the skin. Treatment with the Icon™1540 device may cause slight discomfort, but the majority of our patients find the procedure comfortable. The Icon™1540 laser includes contact cooling technology to reduce discomfort.

Q: HOW LONG DOES A SCAR THERAPY PROCEDURE TAKE?

A: Scar removal treatments vary depending on how many areas are treated, but most treatments take no more than an hour to complete.

Q: WHEN WILL I SEE THE RESULTS?

A: Once the new layer of skin becomes visible, you will start to notice results from your treatment. Scars will begin to fade immediately, but full results can take approximately two months to become apparent. Some patients may require multiple treatments to achieve the desired results.

Q: WHAT IS THE COST OF SCAR THERAPY?

A: Scar removal treatments vary in terms of cost based on the size and number of areas being treated, as well as how many treatments are needed. During your consultation, we will review all of the costs along with payment and financing options. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards in addition to offering financing through CareCredit®.
