Laser Scar Reduction

Board Certified Cosmetic Laser Surgeon Serving Reston, D.C., Tysons Corner, Ashburn, Virginia.

Scars can result from a biological process of wound repair in the skin and other tissues of the body, so scarring is a a very natural part of the healing process. Scars can form after a after a cut, scrape, burn, or sore. Usually scars do fade naturally overtime, but sometimes takes years if left untreated. These should be treated sooner than later with Laser Scar Reduction. Assuming the wound does not become infected, physicians plan excisions to minimize the cosmetic defects produced by scars. This can be accomplished by orienting the wound in such a way so that it will not perturb other structures, so that the scar can be camouflaged by hiding in wrinkle lines or near other anatomical structures.

Different Types of Scars

Laser scar reduction can reduce the appearance of keloid scars, hypertrophic scars, and atrophic scars, which have the following characteristics:

Keloid Scarring: Firm, raised, and reddish-purple scars that extend beyond the initial wound area and build over time.
Hypertrophic Scarring: Firm, raised, and pink scars that remain within the initial wound area and possibly naturally regress over time.
Atrophic Scarring: Depressed pin like pockets in the skin that can result from skin conditions such as acne.

“Dr. Ali is not only a beautiful, highly intelligent woman but also an amazing healer. She treated my face, ravaged over time byrosacea, coupled with multiple broken facial blood vessels and transformed what was ruddy, red and sometimes purple hued skin into a clearcomplexioned healthy and totally makeup free face, and I thank her most graciously.” *

“I think Dr. Ali is very honest and upfront. I didn’t feel I had to get 10 opinions before making a decision. I never feel pressured. Everyone is professional and top notch, the type of people you want to work with. I think the whole office atmosphere is wonderful, I feel friendly with everyone that works there and I love the products. When you don’t come often you feel guilty. It’s usually a family affair to come see Dr. Ali; it’s me, my daughter and granddaughter, it’s a 2 hour drive so we make a day of it.” *
