Many types of scars can be treated with the Art of Natural Beauty Center’s advanced fractional Palomar Icon laser. Common scar types include atrophic pit scars from acne or chicken pox, raised hypertropic scars from wounds, and keloid scars resulting from collagen overgrowth on a wound. All scar types are the result of abnormal collagen organization and may be addressed by the state-of-the-art Palomar Icon laser.
Laser scar removal works by disrupting patches of abnormal collagen and encouraging natural healing processes to produce newly organized collagen in its place. This process helps blend scars into surrounding healthy skin and reduce overall area and appearance. The advanced Palomar Icon laser precisely targets only damaged skin, leaving the healthy skin intact and reducing overall recovery time.
The fractional Palomar Icon laser precisely targets scar tissue, leaving surrounding skin intact. Treated scars may be mildly red or swollen for up to 72 hours following treatment, similar to a mild sunburn. For most treatments, patients can return to normal activity the same day. Following treatment, patients should be careful to use a sunscreen of at least SPF 30 to support the healing phase without further damage.
Typically, laser scar removal treatment requires three to five sessions spaced two to four weeks apart to see maximal results. Some individuals will see changes after the first treatment, which will continue to improve with each subsequent treatment. Contact the Art of Natural Beauty Center for a consultation to develop a personalized treatment plan, unique to individual scars and skin types.
The laser technician will apply a gentle numbing cream to help avoid any discomfort during the laser procedure. Sunburn-like symptoms may persist for a few days following treatment but typically subside quickly.
