Laser scar revision offers a non-surgical option for reducing and eliminating scars. We send powerful laser technology into the scarred skin, to break apart the cells of the scar and improve its appearance. These laser methods require significantly less downtime than traditional surgical methods. In order to create a more attractive, smoother appearance, multiple treatments are needed.
Laser treatments use your body’s own cells to make scars fade and appear much less noticeable over the course of treatments. Your skin cells work to repair themselves after any kind of dermal injury. These injuries can include stretch marks, acne scars, injury scars, and other trauma to the skin’s surface. When a scar becomes a permanent blemish, laser treatments are often recommended to assist in the body’s process of smoothing and improving the surface of your skins’ tone and appearance. Laser treatments work by stimulating the skin cells around the damaged area and with this stimulation, they work to heal and repair a scar’s appearance. Lasers can also target blood vessels and scar tissue to reduce the appearance of redness while encouraging the production of new, healthy skin cells.
O’Neill Plastic Surgery also offers the Picosure Laser for scar removal treatments. Instead of utilizing heat, this innovative technology sends ultra-short pulses of light into the affected skin for a quicker treatment with less downtime. The ultra-short light pulses encourage communication between skin cells and promote the production of new, healthy cells. This incredible laser can be treated for both tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatments. Picosure can improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, as well as pigmentations such as freckles, sunspots, and discoloration.
