How does laser scar treatment work?
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.
