How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?
Many modern laser scar removal procedures have received FDA clearance to treat surgical scars, acne scars and more. These lasers are approved as a safe and effective means of addressing scars on virtually any area of the body, including the face.
Laser scar removal treatments typically work by emitting short pulses of micro-fine laser light to deeply penetrate the skin’s sub-layers. This light energy targets the skin’s supportive structure to stimulate the body’s natural healing response. Once this occurs, the body’s natural regenerative properties begin to sweep away old damaged tissue and begin rebuilding new collagen and elastin, the elements that produce healthy looking skin.
This treatment works on various skin types, ranging from very light to very dark skin. However, it’s best to talk to your doctor about what type of laser will work best on your skin type. An average laser scar removal procedure can take around 30 minutes to complete one session. Most people will require multiple sessions to get good results, typically ranging anywhere from 3 to 7 sessions, however this depends largely on the type of scarring you have.

These procedures are primarily designed to ensure that patients get the results they want without having to spend days recovering from a surgical procedure.
