LASER SCAR TREATMENT faq
How many laser scar treatments are necessary?
Each situation is different, and some patients may require more or fewer treatments than others. However, most patients will only need 4 – 6 laser scar treatments before they've received the maximum benefits of the procedure. After your initial consultation with Lori at Laser Beauty and MedSpa Center in Highland, IN, we will have a much clearer picture of your specific treatment plan.
How soon can you perform laser scar treatment after an injury?
The length of time you must wait after the formation of a scar depends on its source. For instance, if it stems from a surgical procedure, it is usually safe to perform laser scar treatment after only a few weeks of the stitches being removed, allowing the scar to completely heal. However, acne scars may be treated as soon as the underlying acne outbreak is under control.
Can laser scar treatment completely remove a scar?
Unfortunately, there is currently no treatment that can make a scar go away entirely. Instead, laser scar treatment is a useful method for significantly reducing the visibility of a scar.
Is laser scar treatment painful?
Some patients find laser scar treatment to be painful, and others do not. The patient experience will largely be decided by the type of laser, depth and area of treatment, and your own pain tolerance. Those who have undergone the treatment usually refer to it as feeling like having a rubber band repeatedly popped against their skin.
