Laser Scar Revision San Diego, CA
Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center offers laser scar revision for men and women in San Diego, La Jolla, and Carmel Valley, as well as surrounding areas of California. Laser scar revision is recommended for acne scars, stretch marks, and certain other types of scars. It may not be appropriate for keloids, which are raised scars that form on darker skin.
What Is Laser Scar Revision?
Laser scar revision is a type of tissue remodeling that aims to camouflage scars by changing the texture and color. Scars are the result of the body’s healing process in which collagen fibers are quickly formed to close wounds. This process is somewhat haphazard in the sense that surrounding collagen fibers were formed more slowly to create a smooth barrier of skin. This is why scars look different from your other skin.
Laser scar revision creates minor wounds in the skin that can heal more slowly to blend the scar into the other skin. No scar can be removed, but this procedure will make your scar less obvious.

How Is Laser Scar Revision Performed?
We use the Lumenis® ResurFX™ system for our laser skin revision treatments. The laser energy is emitted at a wavelength that is only absorbed by the scar tissue, so the surrounding skin is not affected by the treatment. The laser is applied in short bursts, and each burst feels like a snap against your skin that lasts one to two seconds. Dr. Mozaffari may recommend a series of treatments depending on the characteristics of your scar.
What Is Recovery Like After Laser Scar Revision?
The skin may be slightly red and sensitive immediately following your treatment, but typically resolves on its own after a few days. Dr. Mozaffari recommends to avoid direct sunlight for the first few days following your laser scar revision treatment.
