Laser Scar Resurfacing

Laser treatment is also related to scar resurfacing laser or laser scar remodeling. This treatment can help degrade the appearance of dark spots, wrinkles, skin lesions, as well as scars. It can be effective indeed several years after a scar has formed. Laser resurfacing can diminish the presence of fine lines on the face. It can similarly treat loss of skin tone and refine your complexion. Laser resurfacing can not exclude excessive or sagging skin.

How Does The Therapy Work?

There are two different kinds of laser therapy: fractional laser therapy and CO2 laser therapy.

  • CO2 laser treatment - With little harm to the skin around it, this kind of therapy removes very thin layers of skin using short light pulses or continuous light beams. Each treatment only targets a small portion of the scar tissue, therefore repeated sessions may be necessary for larger scars.
  • Fractional laser therapy - The collagen in the scar is made to tighten by the application of several, slender light columns in fractional treatment. Less of your skin is damaged in the procedure, but because the laser penetrates deeper, there is a chance for more scarring and a longer healing period.

Cost of Laser scar resurfacing

The cost of Laser scar resurfacing depends on the condition of your skin.


Most patients tolerate the operation well; it feels like elastic bands are being snapped. However, topical anaesthetic with a mixture of lidocaine and prilocaine for 60 minutes before the surgery may be required for sensitive people and those with greater fluency levels. Ice or cold air could be utilised as an option to reduce discomfort.
