Scars develop on the skin because of the skin’s normal repair process after an infection, wound, acne lesion or surgical procedure. There are several different kinds of scars, as well as several kinds of acne scars. When your acne scars are in a prominent place and you’d like to do something about it, laser scar treatment at our office in El Dorado Hills could reduce the appearance of the scarring.
Laser scar treatment is non-surgical in nature and can be done in the comfort of our office. Lasers provide an advanced approach to scar removal without the discomfort and recovery time needed after surgery. It only targets the scar and leaves the surrounding skin untouched. Depending on your situation, it may require a number of treatment sessions at our office to completely remove or reduce the appearance of a scar and achieve smooth, clear skin.
During this treatment, the laser energy treats the support structure of the skin, allowing the body’s natural healing process to remove the scar tissue and rebuild the treated area with new collagen for normal-looking skin.
There are different types of lasers that are used for scar removal. Some are more aggressive than others are. When you have a consultation with our specialist in El Dorado Hills, your scars may be examined and you can learn more about how we use the state-of-the-art Icon laser system for scar treatment. You will be able to go back to work or resume your normal daily activities immediately after the treatment. As such, this is a very convenient treatment for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
Scars are a common occurrence and may not be an issue when they are hidden behind clothing, but if they are on your face or another place that is difficult to hide, laser scar treatment may be your best option for smooth skin again. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve your appearance, and laser scar treatment at Northern California Wellness may be just what you’ve been looking for to do so.
