Laser Scar Revision:

At Dr. Beauty, we put more than a decade of experience to work for you, using the best equipment in the industry to reduce scars left by injuries, burns, acne, and more. We can even address dark spots caused by age or other kinds of hyperpigmentation.
How Does Laser Scar Revision Work?
Laser scar removal uses focused light to stimulate new skin cell growth and remove old skin cells from the surface. New skin cells cover the damaged ones, smoothing out wrinkles, spots, indentations, and keloids. The scar doesn’t go away, but it isn’t as visible anymore. As you can imagine, light therapy of this intensity must be done by a board-certified dermatologist. It is an outpatient procedure that requires a topical anesthetic. Side effects include redness, swelling, pain, and oozing. Side effects fade in a couple of days, and we’ll stay in touch to make sure your recovery goes well.
You have the right to feel confident in your own skin. The Dr. Beauty team is here for you from start to finish, fine-tuning your treatment and equipping you to maintain your amazing results. Contact us for a consultation today.
Will My Scar Be Completely Removed?
Unfortunately, a scar cannot be completely erased, however, its size and appearance can be diminished through not only the removal process, but also by the regrowth stimulated by treatment. Multiple treatments can increase your results.
What Kind Of Scars Can Be Treated?

- Injury scars
- Burn scars
- Stretch marks
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Dark spots
How Much Does Laser Scar Revision Cost?
The cost of laser scar revision depends on the size of the scar, the number of scars being treated, as well as the number of treatments that your desired results will require. In most cases, you will pay between $200 and $4000 or more. To get a better idea of what you can expect to pay, it is best to make a consultation appointment.
What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After your procedure, you can expect three to ten days of healing — in most cases, your daily activities won’t be impacted by your treatment, but you may want to avoid certain activities during your healing process. You may also want to:
- Avoid direct sunlight on the treatment area
- Soothe the area with a cold pack
- Take over-the-counter pain meds as directed and needed
- Take care of the wound as specified by your doctor
You also want to consider that full results won’t likely be seen until a few weeks and even months after your treatment.
