Benefits of Laser Surgical Scar Treatment

Surgical incisions mostly leave visible scar tissue when the skin is damaged or opened.
Laser surgical scar treatments aim to reduce the visibility of the scars, even though they do not completely eliminate the scar, specially if the scars are old or deep.

AKJ Skin and Laser Centre enjoys the reputation of being the first clinic in Chennai to offer all types of laser treatments under the pioneering guidance of Dr. Selvam and Dr. Nirmala. We are well-equipped with state-of-the-art laser devices like Fraxel, V- Beam, and Ultra Pulse to treat specific scar types. Our specialists provide the appropriate laser treatment with a particular wavelength of light according to the type, severity, and age of your scars.

Laser surgical scar treatment is a simple procedure with fantastic benefits. This treatment is
  • Non-invasive and causes minimal discomfort
  • Gives quicker results with almost nil surgical downtime
  • Creates smoother and more natural-looking skin
  • Reduces scar visibility and itchiness
  • Improves the skin’s range of motion around the scar

AKJ Laser Surgical Scar Treatment Procedure

A laser surgical scar treatment at AKJ takes only a few sessions. Our experts use the latest laser technology to treat the scars making them less visible on your skin. The treatment also enhances the skin around your scars, making it smoother.

Trauma or surgery to the skin alters collagen, resulting in depressed areas. In laser scar treatments, heat energy stimulates collagen production and remodels the scar tissue. Above all, lasers do not harm the surrounding skin and are, therefore, completely safe.

At AKJ Skin & Laser Centre, we utilise two globally advanced scar revision techniques which are safe, effective, and reliable. They are:

Fraxel System- Erbium Glass Laser Technology

The Erbium Glass Laser uses fractional technology to lighten your skin. The effect can be customised by adjusting the micro beams per unit skin area. As a result of its fractional approach, the recovery time post-procedure is effectively reduced. This laser procedure rejuvenates the skin, accelerates skin regeneration, and rarely causes side effects.

Ultra Pulse System- Fractional CO₂ Laser Technology

Fractional CO₂ laser treatments can improve the appearance of surgical scars and give your skin that smooth, fresh, young-looking appearance. The treatment removes thin layers of skin with short pulses of light or continuous light beams. You may require multiple treatments if your scars are more prominent since small segments of scar tissue are targeted during each treatment.

Laser Surgical Scar Treatment: Pre & Post-op Care

To ensure your laser procedure is as effective and safe as possible, our doctors may recommend certain activities before and after the procedure. Here are the guidelines:

Pre Care
Post Care
Avoid taking medicines and herbs that increase the risk of bleeding.
Avoid products that contain glycolic acid or a retinoid for 2–4 weeks.
Avoid exposing your skin to harsh sunlight for a long time.
Avoid procedures like waxing, chemical peels, and collagen injections.
Quit smoking at least two weeks before the procedure.
Do not use deodorants, perfumes, and other products that could affect the laser-treated areas of your skin.
Wear easily removable clothes like button-up shirts and loose pants to minimise cloth contact with the treated site.
Apply moisturising lotion or a healing ointment prescribed by our doctor to the area at least twice daily.
Avoid using makeup on the treated site until the redness has subsided and the area has healed.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Laser Scar Removal?
Laser Scar Removal is a non-invasive procedure to minimise the visibility of scar tissue on the body. The treatment is done by experts using an FDA-approved fractional laser to treat damaged skin. Laser scar removal is ideal for light and dark skin tones and various skin types.
How does Laser Scar Removal work?
The procedure is done using a controlled laser beam that penetrates the scar tissue's top layers. The focused light therapy either removes the outer layer of the skin or stimulates the production of new cells.
Does the procedure remove scars altogether?
Scar treatment with lasers does not entirely remove scars but only reduces their visibility. The treatment, however, rejuvenates the skin and fills the deeper scars to lessen their appearance.
Will I experience any side effects after the treatment?

After Erbium laser treatment, you may experience:

  • Swelling and redness
  • Dry and flaky skin
  • Occasional oozing for a few days
  • Intense heat sensation for 2-3 hours post-treatment
  • Itching and temporary acne breakouts
  • Dark spots on the treated areas
  • Pink-redness for many weeks
  • Skin sloughing five to six days after the treatment
Is the fractional CO₂ laser treatment safe?
The fractional carbon dioxide laser treatment is a safe and effective laser treatment to reduce the appearance of scars on the face. It is a non-invasive procedure that removes the outer layers of damaged skin and stimulates collagen using a laser made of CO₂. The treatment downtime is for a week or ten days, depending on the scar and its condition. If you’ve had fractional CO₂ laser treatment, you must avoid exposure to harsh sunlight.
What is the healing time after erbium laser treatment?
Generally, it may take a week for the body to recover from a laser scar treatment session. However, it depends on the individual and how their body responds to the treatment, that recovery time will vary.
When will I see results from a CO₂ laser treatment?
Recovery time for CO₂ laser treatment varies from person to person and the severity of the condition. Laser treatments typically take a few weeks, up to five to six months, to show results.
