Laser therapy can help to get rid of that ugly appearance of the scars, but it is relevant to keep realistic expectations about the treatment. The face scar removal in Punjab is the best technique to give you a pleasant-looking appearance without any scar marks. So let us get to know about this surgery in brief:

  • What is the nature of the procedure?

At our clinic, this procedure is carried out as an outpatient procedure. But the patient is treated under the effect of anaesthesia. Right after the procedure, the patient may or may not suffer from the following:

  • Pain
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Oozing
  • For how long the recovery period lasts?

The recovery period may last from 3 to 10 days based on the intensity of the treated scar.

  • When can you take up the laser therapy and when not?

The individual can surely take up the laser therapy if he is bothered by any of the following kinds of scars:

  • Acne scars
  • Burn scars
  • Injury scars
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Dark spots

This procedure may not be ideal for you if you are having the subsequent:

  • Darker skin
  • Skin sores
  • Active acne
  • What is the total cost of the scar removal treatment?

The cost of the treatment may vary depending upon the following factors:

  • The intensity with which the scar has affected the skin
  • The dimension of the scar
  • The type of the scar
  • How many sessions would you need to achieve the desired results?
  • How do scars form?

Whenever a particular injury has affected the area of the skin, then the prevention of that area from the attack of the germs is done by the scab formation. These scabs are prone to get faded off. There are sometimes when the skin colour underneath the scan is matching with the overall skin colour while other times, the skin colour is completely different ( Usually darker) which is known as the scar.

  • How do laser treatments help to get rid of the scars?

First of all, it is relevant to mention here, that the laser treatment only makes the scar less noticeable since no other treatment has been still invented which could make the scars disappear completely from the root. The blood vessels are targeted by the laser beams which help in getting rid of the redness. The laser beams stimulate the cell present in the skin in a way that they can help in the reproduction of cells.

  • Ablative resurfacing

It aims at amelioration of the appearance of the following:

  • Scars
  • Warts
  • Wrinkles

The initial step in this procedure targets the removal of the outer layer and the damaged skin cells are terminated from the surface.

  • Fractionated laser surfacing

The dark pigmented cells are targeted for removal that is present in the deeper layer of the skin.

  • Non-ablative laser resurfacing

The penetration of the inner layer for the stimulation of collagen production is carried out which contributes to the replacement of the skin cells.

  • Which preventive measures should you follow after the procedure?
  • Do not go out in the sun
  • Do not apply makeup
  • Use cold packs if swelling is bothering you
  • Intake the pain relievers if necessary
