Laser Scar Treatment Reviews
What are the benefits of laser scar treatment?
Scars can be difficult to cover up with makeup or clothing, and they may be a constant reminder of a traumatic event. If you are self-conscious about your scars, laser treatment can help you regain confidence in your appearance. Sessions are quick, and you will not need any anesthesia or pain medication afterward. The technology we use at Forever Slender MedSpa is top-of-the-line and can target a wide range of scars that have not responded well to other methods.
To determine if laser scar treatment is right for you, a member of our team will assess your scar during a consultation. Often, patients who are interested in laser scar treatment are searching for an alternative to treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or a surgical procedure. If you have scars that just won't fade, skin damage from rosacea, stretch marks, deep acne scars, or irregularities in the tone and texture of the skin, you are likely a great candidate for laser scar treatment.
Before beginning your treatment, we will lead you back to one of our well-appointed private laser treatment rooms. If anesthesia is being used, it will be administered at this time. The laser will then be applied to the treatment areas using a handheld application. The light energy will stimulate the production of collagen while resurfacing the top layer of your skin. Because of Cutera XEO's built-in technology, the process is typically tolerable and includes the use of cooling technology to keep you mostly comfortable.
What to Expect
Following your treatment session, you may notice minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, or bruising of the treatment area. These effects typically subside on their own within a few hours or days. Patients typically see dramatic results after just one session, but the results will vary patient-to-patient depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment and severity of the scar. Because laser scar treatment can be repeated, it remains at the forefront of noninvasive scar treatments. If you have negative side effects (such as excessive pain, fever, or discharge), please call Forever Slender MedSpa for advice.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does laser scar treatment cost?
Laser scar treatment costs vary based on the type of treatment you select. During your consultation, our team will listen to your concerns and goals before explaining the different types of resurfacing treatments. Then, we can help you choose your treatment and discuss costs.
How can I help my skin recover after treatment?
A member of our team will talk to you about how you can help your skin heal after a laser scar treatment. The most important rule is don't pick at or peel your skin. This could cause lasting damage including scars. You should skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which means no shaving, waxing, or depilatory creams. We will recommend an ointment to help soothe and heal your skin.
Should I get laser scar treatment, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion?
After listening to your skin concerns, we will help you decide if laser scar treatment, a chemical peel, or dermabrasion treatment is best for you. While they all improve the surface of the skin, each has its own benefits and drawbacks. During your consultation, we can explain each option and make a recommendation for your treatment.
How often should I get laser scar treatments?
Depending on the severity of your scars, you may need to wait weeks or even months between appointments. Laser scar treatment will provide long-lasting results, but may require a longer recovery period. You should speak with our team about how often you are willing to come back for treatments so we can take this into account during your consultation.
