Effective, Non-Surgical Scar Removal

If you’re feeling frustrated by the presence of unwanted scarring, laser scar removal may be an ideal procedure for you. This procedure is often considered by individuals who have scars from acne, surgery, or injury and who wish to improve the appearance of their skin. Laser scar revision works by removing the outer layers of skin, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two proteins that are essential for healthy skin.

One of the benefits of laser scar revision is that it is a non-invasive procedure, which means that there is no need for incisions or stitches. This makes it a popular choice for our busy and active patients who want to improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing surgery. Additionally, laser scar revision is a relatively quick procedure, with most treatments taking less than an hour to complete.

When you visit us for laser scar removal, you’ll find yourself under the care of a committed professional who offers you extensive experience and a welcoming bedside manner.

Understanding Laser Scar Revision

During your laser scar revision procedure, advanced laser energy will be used to remove the damaged skin cells and promote the growth of new, healthy skin cells. This helps to reduce the appearance of scars by smoothing out your skin's surface and improving its texture. Laser scar revision can also help to reduce the redness and discoloration often associated with scars.

There are several different types of lasers available at Elanic Medical in Glasgow, including CO2 lasers, Erbium lasers, and pulsed-dye lasers. The type of laser we use for your procedure will depend on the type and severity of the scar, as well as your unique skin type and other individual factors that we’ll learn about during your consultation.

Am I the Ideal Candidate?

Laser scar revision is a safe and effective option for many people who are looking to improve the appearance of their scars and is often recommended for patients who have scars that are raised or discolored, or who have scars that are affecting their self-confidence.

However, laser scar revision may not be suitable for everyone. Those with certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or a history of keloid scarring, may not be good candidates for the procedure. Additionally, patients with darker skin tones may be at a higher risk for complications, such as hyperpigmentation.

Preparing for Laser Scar Revision

Before your laser scar revision procedure, you’ll get to visit our Glasgow offices for your initial consultation. You’ll get to meet with your surgeon, who will evaluate your scar and determine if laser scar revision is an appropriate treatment option. They’ll be able to help you explore the various treatment options we offer for laser scar revision and will ensure that you’re guided to the treatment option that’s right for you. We place a high value on patient education, and your surgeon will answer just about any questions you might have about your upcoming procedure.

Your Laser Scar Revision Procedure

Before the procedure, you’ll be given local anesthesia to numb the area being treated. In some cases, sedation may also be used to help you relax. The type of anesthesia and sedation used will depend on the size and location of the scar, and your personal preference.

During your laser scar revision procedure, your surgeon will use a laser to remove the outer layer of skin near the scar. This process stimulates the growth of new skin cells, which can help to reduce the appearance of the scar.

The entire procedure typically takes between 30 minutes and one hour to complete, depending on the size and location of the scar. You’ll experience a bit of discomfort during the procedure, but this can be managed with local anesthesia and sedation.

We’ll provide you with thorough aftercare instructions that will help you enjoy your ideal results, and our team will remain available to you throughout your journey with us. To get started, reach out and set up your consultation today.
