Laser scar removal is an excellent option for patients looking to improve the appearance of new and old scars. It makes these marks less visible by targeting specific issues like redness and textural irregularities.
Different types of scars need different laser treatments. Keep reading to learn about the comprehensive range of scar removal options available at Miami Skin & Vein.
Vbeam® Perfecta Laser for Red Scars
The Vbeam® Perfecta laser is a gentle, pulsed-dye laser that is ideal for correcting unwanted redness. It can unlock brighter and more even-toned skin after just one session.
Vbeam Perfecta works by emitting bursts of yellow light that are attracted to red pigment in the skin. The cells responsible for redness absorb the energy from the laser, warm up, and disappear. You may need a total of 3-5 treatments to experience the full benefit.
CO2 Laser for Unevenly Textured Scars
Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is an effective treatment for scars with uneven texture. The laser injures small areas of the affected skin to trigger the production of healthy new cells. The process also boosts collagen levels, resulting in a much smoother look and feel.
Our practice uses the CO2RE laser system because the treatments are entirely customizable based on your unique needs. Your appointment will be tailored to suit the results you desire and the downtime you can accommodate.
Laser-Assisted Drug Delivery for Hypertrophic or Keloid Scars
Laser-assisted drug delivery is an emerging technique that enhances the efficacy of topical skin treatments. It can be used with corticosteroids to take care of various forms of scars.
First, the skin is pretreated with a fractional laser. This step creates microscopic channels in the skin that provide access to the underlying layers. Then, when the topical drug is applied, the channels work to facilitate drug distribution.
