Laser Scar Removal Metro Detroit Michigan

The wound-healing process begins with inflammation, progresses to tissue formation and ends with building collagen, the main protein found in connective tissue that supports the skin, bone, cartilage, and blood vessels. Scarring occurs when the wound-healing process is disrupted by certain factors such as too much or too little collagen. For example, a keloid scar is a mass of collagen.

Applications of Laser Scar Removal

At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, we have the best lasers in their class! Utilizing the award-winning Icon Fractional and PicoWay Resolve laser systems for scar removal, we can reduce the appearance of several types of scars on all skin types and tones.

  • Keloid Scarring: Firm, raised, and reddish-purple scars that extend beyond the initial wound area and build over time.
  • Hypertrophic Scarring: Firm, raised and pink scars that remain within the initial wound area and may fade over time.
  • Atrophic Scarring: Depressed pin-like pockets in the skin that can result from skin conditions or diseases such as acne.

Not everyone is a candidate for laser scar removal. People with skin disorders such as psoriasis, cystic acne, and dermatitis may not be ideal candidates and may require medical treatment before laser treatment. Those using certain medications such as those for acne may need to stop using the medication prior to the procedure.

Lasers can greatly improve the appearance of acne scars and help you gain your confidence back!

During laser scar removal, the laser is moved along the scar. This can vaporize or remove a layer of skin and expose a more natural-looking skin layer, which heals over time to minimize scar appearance. Other lasers may target lower layers of the skin, stimulating new collagen growth and correcting scars from the inside out. At Michigan Cosmetic Surgery, we have the latest in laser technology at our fingertips, so we can address all concerns and depths of scar treatments and with all skin tones and types.

Your skin's regeneration process can begin as early as four days after treatment. Speed of regeneration depends on the type of laser used, individual skin characteristics, and how well you follow your doctor's instructions. You can typically resume normal activities immediately after laser scar removal treatment. Because of the wide range of scar issues, the potential for repeated treatments per scar, and combination of treatments that may be necessary, there is no way to estimate the cost before you consult our laser experts at your consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of scars can be treated?

Laser scar treatment is appropriate for surgical scars and acne scars in any area of the body, including the face.

Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Laser scar treatment works on any skin type, including very light and very dark skin. We will evaluate your scars to determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment at your Consultation.

How does it work?

We use a fractional laser from the company that invented and patented micro fractional laser technology, Cynosure. This Laser uses “fractional” pulses of laser light to break down scar tissue and help generate healthy new tissue, light in color and more even in texture.

The procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

Most people feel minimal discomfort during the laser procedure. If you are worried about the pain, we can discuss pain management options with you during your Consultation.

    My breast augmentation experience was 5 stars. Dr. Awada and her staff are super friendly, caring and treat you like family. The office is beautiful and a first class certified facility. Dr. Awada is top notch- she listened to my concerns and goals and took time to council me on different implants and sizes. She is the only one who even took measurements and tried sizers with me to determine what I wanted and the perfect implant. She was much more thorough and professional and made me feel very comfortable and beautiful just the way I was. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor and my results are more beautiful than I thought they could be- I love my breasts and get compliments all the time. I have referred my friends and Recommend Dr. A 110%!!! Mary T.
