The Benefits of Laser Scar Reduction
If you have a scar you are looking to fade, we know that you have probably tried other methods before. Whether you tried drugstore creams or patches, or even prescription topical solutions, you may not have gotten the results you imagined. Allow our lasers to treat your scar directly at the cellular level.
Benefits of laser scar reduction at Body Details include:
- Smoother skin appearance
- Fading of dark marks
- Flattening of raised scars
- No more covering up scars from the past
- Improve your confidence–no matter how much skin you’re showing
We know that scars can make you self-conscious, and here at Body Details we are all about empowering our patients to love their bodies. If your scars keep you from wearing certain clothing or make you self-conscious on the beach, it’s time to come see our laser specialists. We will develop a custom plan to help reduce the appearance of your scars.
The Body Details Process
At Body Details, the process of laser scar reduction is simple. It all starts with a FREE consultation that comes with no obligation. Our laser specialists will evaluate your skin, the type of scar you have, and develop a tailored treatment plan just for you.
After your initial consultation, schedule your first appointment and you will be on your way to smoother, brighter skin. At Body Details, we calibrate our lasers specifically for your skin and your scar prior to each treatment. Your scar is not the same as anyone else’s, and we don’t treat it that way. Our laser calibration process provides the fastest, most effective results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Laser Scar Reduction Painful?
Before and during the procedure we will use a cooling technology to ensure your comfort. Many of our patients report that laser scar reduction doesn’t hurt; if anything we hear that it feels like a rubber band snapping against the skin.
Additionally, as we calibrate our lasers for your skin specifically, there is little-to-no risk of burns as you may experience at other centers.
How Long Does the Process Take?
Your treatment process will take place over a series of sessions. We target your skin cells precisely, allowing your skin time to heal between each appointment. Each session will take place approximately eight weeks apart to ensure your skin is in the best condition to receive your next treatment. Many patients receive between five and ten sessions to help reduce their scars.
Who Administers Treatment?
We hire Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) to perform all of our laser procedures, including laser scar reduction. We are unlike many other centers that do not hire true medical professionals, and this sets us apart from the rest. Our APRNs go through training with Body Details medical experts as well as with the laser manufacturers themselves.
Are There Any Side Effects of Treatment?
The best part of laser scar reduction at Body Details is that there are little-to-no side effects associated with treatment. You may experience a slight redness or burning sensation directly following the procedure but it should dissipate quickly.
What’s even better is that there is no downtime following treatment sessions. You can come in, receive your treatment, and go about your day as usual.
How Long Do Sessions Last?
Treatment sessions are fairly quick and will depend on the type of scar you are treating. If you are treating acne scars, treatment sessions may last as little as twenty minutes. For larger scars your appointment may take longer.
What to Do before and after Treatment
Before your first treatment session it is likely that our laser specialists will advise you to stop using certain beauty products, either that day or for a longer specified period. We do this so that our lasers can best treat your skin cells and provide the most effective results.
Avoid Direct Sun Exposure
We also advise that you avoid direct sun exposure for two weeks prior to treatment and through the duration of your laser scar reduction process. Direct sun exposure can damage your skin, making it challenging to treat.
Use Body Details Approved Beauty Products
Additionally, throughout the course of treatment please only use moisturizers and beauty products that our laser specialists approve. There are some products that are contraindicated with treatment. They may cause your skin to have an adverse reaction, leading to redness and irritation. If you have any questions regarding specific products that we do not mention during your consultation, ask us. As specialists, we will be able to advise you appropriately.
