Choose laser scar removal for:

  • Little to no downtime treatments
  • Simple procedures with minimal discomfort
  • Quick, non-invasive treatment sessions
  • Excellent scar removal outcomes

How laser scar treatment works

Unlike surgery, laser scar treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.
