Scar Removal Q & A

Family Health Care Aesthetics

What is laser scar removal?

Family Health Care Aesthetics uses the ICON™ fractional laser system for easy scar removal. This fast, simple, and effective treatment has minimal downtime and is effective on all skin types.

Fractional laser scar treatment works on:

  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars (including C-section scars)
  • Burns

In just four quick treatment sessions, scars are much less visible, leaving behind smoother, more attractive skin.

How does laser scar removal work?

The ICON system uses short pulses of laser light to reach deeply into your skin’s sub-layers to break down scar tissue.

Your body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh collagen and elastin, the building blocks of your skin. The increased production of collagen and elastin results in healthier and tighter skin, making scars less noticeable.

Because these micro beams only target a pin-dot size of skin tissue at a time, the skin surrounding the treatment area remains untouched.

After treatment, there’s no downtime or recovery period. There may be temporary redness or swelling that lasts a day or two at most. 

What are the advantages of laser scar removal?

Before laser technology, the choices for scar treatment were mechanical dermabrasion (a wire brush that removes the top layers of skin) or deep chemical peels. However, these treatments can’t reach far enough to remove deep acne scars. Also, dermabrasion can cause scarring and discoloration on people with darker skin.

Laser scar removal using the ICON laser offers the following benefits:

  • Improved skin texture and tone
  • Smoother acne scar depressions in your skin
  • Stimulation of collagen growth for up to six months
  • Long lasting results
  • Minimal downtime and discomfort
