acnescars

Fractional skin resurfacing laser treatment for deep wrinkles, acne scarring, surgical scars, traumatic scars.

The minimally invasive nature of laser scar-revision treatments means that they are well tolerated by patients, and faster recovery times.

Lasers are ideally suited for the effective treatment of a wide range of scar tissues. Er:YAG skin resurfacing is used for gentle ablation of scar tissue and activation of collagen remodeling. Acne scars in particular respond well to Er:YAG treatments. For hypertrophic scars, clinical research conducted with the Nd:YAG wavelength show further improvement in the aesthetic appearance and overall tissue quality of a scar, including erythema, volume, pliability, etc.

With Laurel Aesthetic and Laser’s dual-wavelength scar-revision therapy, both nonablative Nd:YAG and fractional ablative Er:YAG wavelengths are combined as part of a single comprehensive scar-treatment regimen.  Dual wavelength scar treatment therapies provide a highly effective solution that not only addresses a scar’s aesthetic appearance but also helps to resolve complicating factors with the scar’s vascular feeding system.

Each person is different, but during the treatment, you can expect minimal to mild discomfort. Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some redness and a sunburn-like sensation, depending on your customized treatment settings. Treatments will have redness and swelling for 2-3 days. It is best to avoid direct sunlight for a few days following treatment and to apply sunscreen at all times while outdoors.
