Scars

Scar formation is a natural part of the healing process of the skin. Whether a scar is a result of trauma, surgery or some other type of injury, it isn’t always the most welcome feature on your skin. Visible scars can act as a constant reminder of an injury or event you’d rather forget, or they can simply be distracting from what you want others to see when they look at you. Fortunately, there is an answer to unwanted scars.

Laser Treatment of Scars

Over the past decade, lasers and other devices have revolutionized the way we treat scars. Surgical, traumatic, hypertrophic (thick and red), hypopigmented (white), hyperpigmented (brown), burn, and acne scars may all benefit from treatment. Dr. Tanzi and the team of physicians at Capital Laser & Skin Care are leaders in the field of laser scar revision. They have developed specific techniques to dramatically fade and reduce the appearance of scars.

After a thorough consultation and evaluation of your scar, we can begin working on a treatment plan to help correct discoloration, improve texture, and flatten raised areas. The specific laser or device considered will vary depending on the type, size, and location of your scar. The number of treatments required, recovery time and anticipated results are all discussed during the in-depth consultation. Although small scars may require one or two treatment sessions, more complex scars will require a series of treatments for the best overall results.
