If you suffer from embarrassing scars, then laser therapy may be the cure you have been looking for. Fractional laser treatments are a new way to get impressive results that are long lasting. They penetrate deeper than ever before, reaching the root of the scar and wiping it away. This treatment has the added benefit of healing quickly and not leaving the skin red or irritated.Not only can the fractional laser be used to erase scars, but it is also effective at diminishing the unwanted appearance of wrinkles and deep lines.
Traditional CO2 lasers often remove dermis and epidermis during treatment, but fractional laser therapy does not pose this risk. Collagen gel is used during the healing process to improve the health of skin, leaving you with brighter, tighter, and unblemished skin.Recently found to be the most effective means of treating excessive scars, strong support for this new laser technology was presented in the December issue of theAmerican Society of Plastic Surgeons’ medical journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. By studying 28 well-designed clinical trials using medical laser treatments, doctors were able to determine the best treatment for serious scarring.If you have been plagued by difficult scarring that has proven resistant to other treatments, you may want to give fractional laser therapy a try. Before having treatment, contact Dr. Malek to discuss your medical history and skin type to determine if you would be a good candidate for this type of treatment.
