Old and new scars can become history

with Laser Scar Revision Treatment

It’s never too late to start scar removal, reduction, and lightening treatments. While it’s not possible to completely remove scars, Denver Laser Solutions offers treatments to significantly reduce and lighten them without the complications and costs related to scar reduction surgery.

 

Ideally, most effective treatments occur shortly after the wound is healed and before scar tissue has a chance to set in. Whether the scar started out raised or discolored, your surgical and acne scars will no longer be the first thing people see. Fractional laser energy is delivered into the skin to break up scar tissue. Over a series of treatments, collagen regeneration smooths out both pitted acne scars and raised keloid scars. Intense pulse light photo facial may also be used if the scar has irregular pigment or is red.

Over a series of Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing treatments, energy is delivered to the scarred area to trigger collagen regeneration. This process smooths out scars and reduces the appearance of scarring. Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is the same treatment used to reduce stretch marks.

Sometimes our Denver skin care clients combine our Intense Pulsed Light Photofacial treatments with our Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment or use it on its own to reduce redness or irregular pigmentation in scars. Learn More About Intense Pulse Light 

Another option we offer to help with scar reduction is prescription grade treatment creams. These creams contain Retin-A, a resurfacing agent, and hydroquinone, a chemical skin bleaching ingredient. They can be used on their own to lighten and shrink scars. For best results, it can be used in conjunction with our Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Treatment and/or our Intense Pulse Light Photofacial Treatment. This scar lightening cream is the same prescription strength solution used to reduce stretch marks.

Frequently Asked Questions for Scar Revision Treatments

How does laser scar removal work?

Although we may never be able to fully remove your scars we will reduce their appearance and fade them from view. Laser scar treatment works by delivering heat columns into the skin to break up scar tissue. This heat causes slight damage to the tissue resulting in collagen stimulation. The production of collagen helps the skin return to its natural state.

What types of scars can be treated?

With scar revision treatments plan on seeing improvement in all types of facial and body scars. Old scars, new scars, hypertrophic (raised at the site), atrophic (pitted or sunken), darken scars, surgical scars, wound healing scars, road rash, red scars can all be treated.

How many treatments will I need?

Reducing the appearance of your scar will take some time. Although you will see improvements fairly quickly we recommend a series of at least three treatments. For some of our Denver scar revision clients, Intense Pulse Light (IPL) is added to assist in toning down red or brown coloring in the scar which helps obtain your most optimal result.

Am I a good candidate for laser scar removal?

If you have a scar that’s been bothering you please don’t hesitate to discuss with us your options for treatment. Our laser is safe for all skin types, from very light to very dark.

Does laser treatment for scar reduction hurt?

Although the discomfort is manageable, we recommend using a topical numbing cream to make the procedure a little more comfortable. You can purchase prescription-strength numbing cream from us, or we can apply it for you approximately 45 minutes prior to your treatment.

What should I expect after treatment?

You will experience some warmth, redness and slight swelling in the treated area. A topical wound healing cream will be applied and ice is recommended intermittently post-treatment for comfort and proper healing. Keep the area moist with Aquaphor and protected from the sun with SPF daily. You may also refer to our aftercare page for more a detailed description.

When should I start scar revision treatments?

It is always best to start scar revision treatments as soon as the wound has healed, our treatments can be used at any time. It is never too late to lighten and reduce scars.
