Whether you are dealing with scarring from acne, surgery or a traumatic event, you have treatment options to help you refine the texture and pigment of your complexion. In many cases, laser scar removal alone or coupled with other treatments can provide you the results you hope to achieve.
What Is a Scar?
A scar is a result of your body’s healing process. Specifically, a scar is fibrotic tissue left behind due to irregular collagen formation to complete the healing process.
Types Of Scars:
- Keloid scars
What Is Laser Scar Revision?
Laser scar revision can improve skin texture and pigmentation to reduce or eliminate the appearance of a scar. Various treatment methods can be used to supplement the effectiveness of cosmetic lasers. The means of treatment and how long it will take will be determined by:
- Type of scar
- Size of the treatment area
- Skin type
- Location of scar
Even the smallest scar can be the source of self-consciousness and feeling anxious about your body. Laser scar revision provides the opportunity to erase these perceived flaws almost anywhere on your body. Easily get rid of scarring, burns, acne scars, dark spots, and more with laser scar revision.
It’s time to embrace your body through a painless, effective scar removal treatment.
Laser Scar Revision Benefits:

- Highly effective procedure
- Productive for a variety of scar types
- Provides an increased confidence & quality of life
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Scar Revision?
The best candidates for laser scar revision are healthy individuals who want a painless and long-lasting option for reducing the appearance of scars. There is no age limit for this treatment. There must be no active acne or other skin diseases in the treatment area.
Since scar size and skin type is different for everyone, results will vary for each patient. Be sure to set realistic goals and have a positive outlook before undergoing laser scar revision.
People taking anticoagulants or medicine for cardiovascular diseases may need to temporarily change their dosage as directed. Medical conditions like diabetes or lifestyle habits such as smoking can slow down healing.
How to Prepare for Laser Scar Revision
Before your laser scar revision appointment, you’ll need to make sure you are ready for the treatment.
Quit smoking two weeks before your treatment. This will help flush out nicotine in your system and promote faster skin healing.
Avoid too much sun exposure before laser scar revision. Combining prolonged sun exposure and laser energy may cause further damage to the skin. Always wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30.
Avoid exfoliating your skin, and stop using skincare products like retinol or glycolic acid for at least 2-4 weeks prior the treatment.
Do not take aspirin, herbal supplements, or other medication that can thin the blood and slow down the skin’s natural healing timeline.

What Can You Expect with Laser Scar Revision?
What each patient can expect will differ based on the scar and the area that is being treated. A complimentary consultation with our staff can help you get a better idea of what to expect and how you can achieve your desired results. However, no matter your treatment, you can anticipate:
- A topical numbing agent
- The reduction of the appearance of your scars
- The stimulation of new skin cell production
- Minimal discomfort after your procedure
- No downtime — expect 3-10 days healing
Are There Side Effects?
Most patients will not experience prolonged side-effects, however, because heat and light are being used to treat your scar, you may experience:
- Temporary oozing
Most of these side-effects are temporary. However, if you see signs of an infection, you must seek medical attention.
How Does Laser Scar Revision Work?
Laser scar removal uses focused light to stimulate new skin cell growth and remove old skin cells from the surface. New skin cells cover the damaged ones, smoothing out wrinkles, spots, indentations, and keloids. The scar does not go away, but it is not as visible anymore. As you can imagine, light therapy of this intensity must be done by a board-certified dermatologist. It is an outpatient procedure that requires a topical anesthetic.
You have the right to feel confident in your own skin. The Dr. Beauty team is here for you from start to finish, fine-tuning your treatment and equipping you to maintain your amazing results.
Will My Scar Be Completely Removed?
Your scar’s size and appearance can be diminished through not only the removal process, but also by the regrowth stimulated by treatment. Although your scar may not be completely removed, multiple treatments can increase results.
What Kind of Scars Can Be Treated?
Laser scar revision harnesses the power offered through laser therapy to diminish the appearance of:
- Injury scars
- Surgical scars
- Burn scars
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Dark spots
How Much Does Laser Scar Revision Cost?
The cost of laser scar revision depends on the size of the scar, the number of scars being treated, as well as the number of treatments that your desired results will require. In most cases, you will pay between $200 and $4,000. To get a better idea of what you can expect to pay, it is best to schedule a consultation.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After your procedure, you can expect three to ten days of healing. In most cases, your daily activities will not be impacted by your treatment, but you may want to avoid certain activities during your healing process. You may also want to:
- Avoid direct sunlight on the treatment area
- Soothe the area with a cold pack
- Take over-the-counter pain meds as directed and needed
- Take care of the wound as specified by your doctor
You also want to consider that full results will not likely be seen until a few weeks and even months after your treatment.
