Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offer scar removal laser treatment to the residents of New York and New Jersey.

What are Scars?

Your skin is a protective covering that is built from collagen fibers that are configured in a very structured manner.  When you injure your skin, though, new collagen fibers cover the injury in a very chaotic pattern, and the result is a new scar.

Are There Different Types of Scars?

Depending on your skin type and the extent of the injury, you may develop one of four types of scars.  Keloids are most common in people with darker skin types.  These scars appear as raised scars that cover an area that is greater than the original injury.  When you burn your skin, the resulting scar is known as a “contracture scar.”  Contracture scars are formed when your skin tightens to protect the injured area.  In severe burn cases, contracture scars can limit mobility and affect the underlying muscles and nerves.  Hypertrophic scars are red in color and are slightly raised above the surface of your skin, and acne scars range from deep pits to scars with irregular shapes.

What is the Treatment for Scar Removal?

Scars never completely go away, but laser technology can be used to reduce the size and shape of the scars to help you feel more confident about your appearance.  Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey offers treatments with fractional lasers and eMatrix™ sublative rejuvenation to treat your scars.  The benefit of treating your scar with laser technology is that you experience little to no discomfort, and you can return to your normal activities immediately after treatment.

What Areas of the Body Can You Treat?

Scar removal laser treatments are safe and effective for most of the locations where you may have a scar, including your legs, hands, face, torso, abdomen and thighs.  The best way to find out if scar removal laser treatments are right for you is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldberg.  He examines your scar and discusses your treatment options to help you make an informed decision.

Is the Procedure Uncomfortable?

Laser treatments for scar removal do produce a small level of heat as the laser works to correct your scar.  Most patients remain comfortable during the procedure with only a topical numbing agent or cold air spray.  After your procedure, you may experience a mild discomfort that lasts only a few days.

Is There Any Downtime Involved?

In some cases, Dr. Goldberg may recommend that you rest for a few days, but most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.  You should always use a high SPF sunscreen after your scar removal laser treatment.

How Many Treatments Are Required?

Each scar removal laser treatment is unique to the patient.  During your consultation, Dr. Goldberg discusses your treatment plan, including the number of sessions needed for your specific scar removal.
