While scars come in various shapes, sizes, textures and pigments, they all have the potential to make you feel self-conscious. Laser scar reduction is a non-invasive treatment that can help camouflage, diminish and reduce the overall appearance of scars.

Laser scar reduction treatments are minimally invasive, which means that they are well tolerated and have fast recovery times. This allows the psychological impact of scar reduction treatments to be realized much sooner.
Our laser treatment for scars utilizes the Nd:YAG and Er:YAG dual mode treatment, which results in improved skin tone and texture, and minimizes the appearance of scar tissue. This highly effective solution not only addresses a scar’s aesthetic appearance, but also helps to resolve complicating factors with the scar’s vascular feeding system.
A series of 3 to 5 laser scar reduction treatments may be necessary depending on the severity of the scar(s), as well as, the results you’d like achieved. Treatments should be performed 1 month apart and a topical anaesthetic may be necessary depending on skin sensitivity.
Treatment length will be discussed during your initial consultation, as it is dependent on the size and number of scars.
You may feel a sunburn-like sensation with erythema, which will diminish within a few hours to a few days following your laser scar reductionl treatment.
