If you have scars that bother you, don’t worry. With the innovation we have today, there are several ways to remove scars with laser. Some people opt to use creams while others choose surgery. Saying goodbye to your scars can be easy with laser treatment at GLOJAS. It has little to no downtime and provides immediate results too.
While a good dermatologist can offer great scar-tissue reducing results, the best way to ensure you are happy with the outcome of your procedure is to prepare appropriately. To get impressive results and avoid serious side effects it is important to know these basic facts before you have laser treatment for your scar:
Lasers can make the scar less noticeable but they cannot totally get rid of the scar. With the recent advancement in medicine, lasers are becoming a dermatologist’s go-to treatment as they can prevent a raised scar from forming after surgery, minimize scar pain and itch, and increase the range of motion if a scar limits movement.
You may see several beauty salons offering laser treatment but the best person to help you if you want to have your scar removed is a board-certified dermatologist like at GLOJAS. When the person performing your laser treatment lacks medical expertise and medical knowledge of the skin, the treatment may not give you the results you seek. It can even result in more damage and can be dangerous to your skin.
Every patient is unique, that’s why consultation is vital prior to treatment. It is important to inform your dermatologist if you smoke, get cold sores, have any medical condition such as diabetes, and your current medication or supplements.
If you show up to your doctor’s clinic with a sunburn, your dermatologist cannot perform laser treatment. Using a laser could cause serious damage to your skin if you insist. On the other hand, after laser treatment, it is also essential to protect your skin from the sun until it heals because the sun’s rays can be harmful to your treated skin and can result in another scar.
To give you the best and most long-lasting results, dermatologists often recommend a series of treatments for scars. If you are considering laser treatment for your scar, it is best to schedule a consultation with a board-certified dermatologist like at GLOJAS to know if it is right for you.
