Laser Scar Treatment
Laser scar treatment evens out the skin's surface, reducing the unpleasant look of acne scars and other scars. Likewise, it rejuvenates the skin bringing back that youthful and healthy looking glow. All these benefits can be yours without holding you back from going back to work and getting back to your daily life. You will see and experience quick results and will feel rejuvenated in no time. With the latest innovation in technology, Dr. Pascual uses laser scar treatment that is unsurpassed in the Miami area.
Visible scars are an eyesore. Scars are caused by fibrous tissue formation as the skin repairs itself after an injury. If you have unsightly acne scars, surgical scars, or scars caused by injury, head to the clinic of Dr. Pascual in Miami and have your scars treated with the latest revolution in laser scar treatment.
Laser Scar Treatment Procedure
Using the latest laser technology, the beam of the laser penetrates the pores of the skin, smoothing the deep layers of the skin and improving the skin tone. Unless viewed under the microscope, the miniscule penetration of the laser is not visible to the naked eye. For this reason, there is a very short recovery time, results are immediate, and the skin will heal in a matter of 1 to 3 days.
What are the benefits of Laser Scar Treatment?
Remarkably, scars will have a noticeable decrease in appearance with even a single laser scar treatment, and the results are permanent. It reduces the size and appearance of large surgical scars, as well as disturbing acne scars. The laser scar treatment also treats unwanted wrinkles, fine lines, and visible sun damage, while improving the tone of the skin and bringing back that youthful, healthy glow. Because the penetration is barely visible, you can get back to work and go about your daily business in as little as 1 to 3 days.
How does the Laser Scar Treatment feel during and after the treatment?
Anesthetic topical ointments and other cooling agents may be used during the procedure. Most patients, however, report a warm, sharp sensation while the procedure is going on. Nonetheless, it is very minor and is not a cause for alarm.
How long will the treatment procedure take?
Depending on the area of your skin that needs to be treated, usually the whole laser scar treatment procedure only takes 30 minutes to an hour. You may get back on your feet after the treatment or you may choose to rest and relax.
How long is the down time and what are the restrictions after the laser scar treatment?
Some patients return to work the next day after having their laser scar treatment, while some patients may choose to relax for a couple of days to relieve the minor burning sensation that they are feeling after their laser scar treatment. However, it is advisable to avoid sun exposure and harsh environmental elements for 1 to 3 days after treatment.
A thorough guideline for proper skin care after the treatment will be given by Dr. Pascual.
