Get Rid of Unwanted Scars with Laser Treatment

Laser Scar Removal

Scars are difficult for anyone to deal with. As residual proof of previous trauma, surgery or illness, scars can cause social embarrassment, poor body image and lower self-confidence. You don’t have to live with scars, however, because laser scare removal can minimize or even eliminate some scars forever.

What Causes Scars?

Scars are created when a wound heals poorly or overzealously. A scar has a different texture than the skin that surrounds it and may be one of these three types:

  1. 1. Hypertrophic: these scars are raised above the level of surrounding skin
  2. 2. Keloid: similar to hypertrophic but may be larger, painful, itchy and extend beyond the borders of the original wound. Keloid scars may continue to grow.
  3. 3. Contracture: a scar that limits range of motion, such as a scar between the upper and lower arm the makes it difficult to straighten the arm.

How Do Lasers Treat Scars?

Lasers improve the texture, color and tone of the skin as a result of a phenomenon called the “heat and heal” cycle. Essentially, skin cells are damaged by the laser’s heat after which the skin increases production of collagen to heal the skin, which remodels the scar. Not all scars can be improved with laser scar removal treatments but, with the near-constant technological improvements in laser treatments for scars, even if your scar cannot be dramatically improved now, changes in laser capabilities may give you a solution in the next few years.

Which Laser is Best for Scars?

In Dr. Berman’s experience, the Fractional CO2 laser is often the best laser for scarring because it delivers improvement in the skin over time with very little to no downtime.

How Laser Treatments for Scars are Performed

When you arrive at our Boca Raton plastic surgery office, you will be given medications to relax you, followed by the application of a cream anesthetic. Both you and Dr. Berman will wear special glasses to protect your eyes from the laser light. The laser hand piece makes a noise each time it treats a section of skin, followed by cooling. When the treatment is complete, you will feel as if you have a sunburn. Depending on the size of the scar, your session may take from 10-20 minutes.

Recovery from Facial Laser Treatments for Scars

Most Fractional CO2 laser patients find that both the treatment and recovery are fairly uneventful, with the feeling of sunburn the first symptom of the laser treatment. This is followed by 3-5 days of peeling, until the skin has recovered. Fractional CO2 treatments require several rounds to deliver the highest level of improvement in scars. Dr. Berman may give you a prescription for antibiotics and/or fungal medication as a precaution prior to a laser treatment for scarring. He will recommend specific post-laser skincare products for cleansing and toning the skin, as well as recommendations for sun exposure following laser treatments.

You all are extremely special to me and my husband. You all made my dreams come true.I found myself sitting alone in the dark one night after the surgery with tears of joy in my heart. You and Kris did everything possible for me to get the surgeries done that I needed for my own peace of mind. That makes me forever grateful. I can’t find enough words to say how happy I feel. You and the rest of your staff care for the client more than any doctor I have ever been to. You made me feel like I was number one. You and your staff are top notch in my eyes and it is with the highest honor to recommend you straight from my heart to all my friends and anyone that I see that needs your kind of help. Thank you all again for everything you have done for me. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart,

I want to take this time to thank you and your most kind and understable staff.

Plastic surgery under your care has been made to be a pleasant stressless experience. You and your staff have done the very best.

To put my mind at ease your bedside manner is superb and most gentle ways are greatly appreciated. I would recommend anyone to do any kind of plastic surgery starring you as their surgeon.

Thank you so very much again for your understanding and friendliness and wonderful work. It has been a most pleasant experience.
