Scar laser treatment
Physicians Laser and Dermatology Institute doctors offer expertise in the treatment of scars through the use of various laser systems. Scar appearance can be significantly reduced, and self-consciousness and embarrassment can be diminished.
Atrophic scars are skin depressions resulting from tissue loss that occurs with trauma, including acne and surgery. Different laser systems can smooth uneven surfaces or minimize the red or dark color of certain scars. Some scars require treatment by a combination of lasers.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are elevated or raised, and can be different from surrounding skin in color as well as texture. Various lasers flatten hypertrophic scars while reducing red or dark pigmentation and improving itching and burning sensations.
