Skin Treatment

laser scar removal

A scar is an unpleasant reminder of a healthy body process, created when your skin repairs a wound caused by an accident, infection, inflammation, or surgery. Scars vary in shape and size. They may start out red and thick and fade over time, or turn flat, sunken, or lumpy — leading you to wonder about cosmetic procedures to eliminate them.

These days, skin laser technology has advanced to the point where much can be done to treat scars. Laser scar removal or reduction is a common procedure performed in a dermatologist’s office or at a skin laser clinic. With a laser, scars can be lessened significantly and possibly erased, depending on their severity.

Scars Classification

  • Red scars form under constant skin inflammation or because of enlargement of capillaries in the skin, also because of blood accumulation after an injury.
  • Brown scars form under condition when too much of melanin pigment (secondary hyperpigmentation after an injury, exposure to sun, medication impact, for dark-skinned individuals) accumulates in the newly formed scar.
  • White scars form when there is a shortage of melanin in derma or in case of tissue fibrosis.
