What is Laser Scar Removal?
Scar formation is your body’s natural response when healing after an injury to the skin, and it works differently for each person and in each location of the body. Factors determining the severity of a scar left behind after a skin injury include the depth of the injury, the location of the injury, your age, heredity, sex, and even your ethnicity. Most important, however, is how your skin responds to the injury, and this is where laser scar removal comes in.
Laser scar removal is a non-invasive solution that uses pulses of fractional laser light to create tiny columns of thickened tissue that extend deep into the skin without wearing away the top layer. This triggers a wound-healing process that encourages healthy new tissue growth, which in turn greatly diminishes the appearance of the former scar tissue.
