What causes scarring?
When the body responds to an injury by laying down layers of tough, fibrous tissue to help protect an injured area, scars form as part of the body’s natural healing process. Scars frequently appear darker, lighter, smoother, or rougher than surrounding skin in addition to being thicker and more durable. Some scars may protrude from the skin’s surface or be recessed beneath it. Scars can develop anywhere on the body, both inside and externally, and they frequently result from untreated deep, cystic acne, surgery or a traumatic accident, and they can become more obvious if the healing process is not successful. Small scars can have a big impact on one’s confidence, especially if they appear on a body part that is highly visible.
How do lasers help fade scars?
Lasers aid in skin remodeling by dissolving fibrous tissue, allowing the body to naturally eliminate damaged cells and encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin. One of the most crucial “building blocks” of healthy, smooth skin is collagen, and the concentrated heat of the laser energy wavelength serves to encourage and accelerate its development. Additionally, because laser energy is flexible and adaptable, your scar therapy can be tailored to your unique requirements for better results.
Will I need more than one treatment?
The number of treatments you will need depends on the scar’s size and other elements. Most patients require several to meet their goals.
Will insurance cover the cost of my treatments?
Most medical insurance policies do not cover laser scar revision procedures since they are typically regarded as cosmetic in nature.
