Scar Removal Franklin

Using lasers to remove scars is safe and effectiveIf you have scars on your face or body that you would like to remove, laser scar revision might be a great solution for you. Previously, the only way to get rid of scars was to have surgical scar removal which is painful, invasive, and have a risk for complications. Laser scar removal offers a noninvasive solution that uses fractional laser technology to deliver rapid, reliable scar removal with less risk, minimal to no pain, and no downtime.

Laser scar removal can work to reduce the appearance of most types of scars, which include keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars. Keloid scars are relatively firmer, raised, and reddish color scars. These scars tend to spread beyond the initial area of the wound and build over time.

Scar Types

Hypertrophic scars are also firm and raised like keloids, but the color is pinkish. They remain confined to the initial area of the wound, and usually fade with the passage of time. Atrophic scars are fine depressions or pin-like pockets that usually result from skin conditions such as acne. Results with both ablative and non-ablative scar revision are permanent. Dr. Fatseas uses the Palomar Icon laser, which is the leader in scar revision technology to ensure the best possible results for his patients.

Laser based scar revision is one of the most effective and minimally invasive procedures available today. It can help to reduce the appearance of scars significantly, and also helps prevent recurrence of scars.

Procedure

During the laser scar revision procedure, the beam of laser is moved along the scar with guided precision. The laser helps to stimulate natural collagen under the skin, which can help to correct the scar from the inside out. This gets replaced by a new skin layer that is more natural looking and smoother.
