There is hope for improving surgical scars, biopsy scars, traumatic scars, hypertrophic scars, and keloidal scars! The redness and texture of most scars can be improved with laser treatments. At Dermatology Associates Medical Group, we treat scars with a combination of different lasers for optimal results. Typically, we use the Vbeam laser and the Fraxel laser at the same session to address redness and texture, respectively.
The Vbeam laser reduces redness by targeting blood vessels that contribute to the scar’s red color.
The Fraxel laser helps create collagen within the scar, improving its texture to help it blend with the surrounding skin. We use topical numbing cream to minimize any discomfort, and the treatment takes only a few minutes. For best results, several treatments may be necessary.
If you have scars that concern you, ask your dermatologist about Vbeam and Fraxel laser treatments at your next dermatology appointment or call us to schedule a consultation with Dr. Aria.
