Laser Scar Reduction

Reston Virginia Dermatology Medical Spa & Wellness Center

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.
