The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times allow the psychological impact of scar revision treatments to be realized much sooner by patients.
Harnessing the Medical Power of Light
Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength has demonstrated substantial improvements in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc. In many cases, further improvement can also be obtained using gentle ablative Er:YAG skin resurfacing. Acne scars in particular respond well to Er:YAG treatments.
