What to know about Laser for scar treatment

Laser for scar treatment reduces the appearance of scars. It uses focused light therapy to either remove the outer layer of the skin’s surface or stimulate the production of new skin cells to cover damaged skin cells. Laser treatment for scars can reduce the appearance of warts, skin wrinkles, age spots, scars, and keloids. Other names for laser therapy include laser skin resurfacing and laser scar correction.


This procedure requires a topical anaesthetic to numb the skin. Laser treatment for scars is an outpatient procedure. It should only be performed by a certified dermatologist.

How Do Lasers for Scars treatment work?

Advanced technologies like CO2 laser resurfacing work wonders for scar treatment. In this treatment, laser light pulses are used. The laser beams penetrate the surface of the skin and gets absorbed by the water in the skin cells. During this procedure, the superficial layer or the epidermis gets vaporized. The middle layer or the dermis gets heated up which stimulate new collagen fiber growth. As healing in the area begins, new smoother, firmer, and younger looking skin replaces the old layers.

At Skinroots Clinic, the dermatologist or the cosmetic surgeon is highly experienced and expert in the procedure. Specific skin areas are targeted with utmost precision, so that the nearby skin is not affected by the treatment. Ice pack is recommended after the treatment to prevent swelling. A nonstick dressing and antibacterial ointment is applied on the treated skin.

What to anticipate following laser scar removal?

  • A bandage will be put on after the laser treatment and should be worn for 24 hours.
  • The region should then be cleaned with a saline solution.
  • Topical antibiotics and sun protection skin repair cream is added to the regimen for quick recovery.
  • The intention is to stop a scab from developing. Depending on the kind of therapy, healing takes anywhere from 5 to 21 days.
