Scarring and Burns Treatments
Laser treatment can significantly improve the appearance of both new and old scars. The scars that can be treated may have resulted from many different causes for example – post surgery, accidental injury as well as burns. Patients with scarring have often been advised they are stuck with them and there is nothing that can improve their outlook, however bespoke laser treatment can make a significant difference.
How it works:
Dr Phillips has a multilayered approach to treating scar tissue dependent on the type of scar, its appearance and your skin type. With ablative and thermal effects, Fotona laser can improve scars by ablating to reduce the thickness of scars and smoothing the edges of scars; as well as stimulating collagen production and remodeling collagen to improve the volume of scars.
Gentle & Effective Acne Scar Revision
For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone. Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe and simple procedure.
Patients will notice a significant difference in their scars from the depth of the scar to the skin tone and texture feeling like normal skin, rather than scar tissue. Often freckles and your normal skin tone will return to these areas.
After the treatment, mild crusting will occur and all heals in 5-7 days with minimal downtime.
