Scar Revision — Pennington Laser Techniques

Published on December 6, 2015 by

Cosmetic surgery, or any surgery for that matter, can seem a little bit scary. Laser scar revision is a less invasive treatment that can be done at Dr. Sharon Gertzman’s medical spa.

With scar revision, there are several techniques that can be implemented depending on the size and other details of the scar. With laser treatments, Dr. Gertzman incorporates laser light energy to remove the outer layer of the epidermis in order to stimulate growth of new skin.

Once the new skin grows in, it will be smoother than the scarred tissue before it. This helps to diminish the appearance of the scar and creates a more seamless look and feel.

It’s best to wait about six months after the scar was made before undergoing treatment for it.
