Visible scars can diminish your confidence and remind you of an injury, medical condition, or surgical procedure that you’d rather forget. While treating scars used to be difficult without surgery or anesthesia, that is no longer the case.

At Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania, Jordan V. Wang, MD, MBE, MBA and our board-certified dermatologists offer injectables, laser treatments, and energy-based devices to substantially reduce the appearance of visible scars without surgery or downtime. Our physicians work with patients of all ages, including young children, whether they have red scars, brown scars, surgical scars, acne scars, raised scars, or depressed scars. 

As leaders in the field of medical and cosmetic dermatology, our dermatologists have the necessary experience, training, and state-of-the-art technology to customize each patient’s scar treatment plan. 

 

How does scar treatment work?

One of the most effective treatments for scars is laser and energy-based device therapy. Laser treatments can target scarring without damaging the surrounding skin.

Do scar treatments work?

Thanks to our physicians’ high level of training, our devices can effectively reduce the appearance of unwanted scars with as little discomfort as possible. Topical numbing creams and local anesthetics are also available to prevent pain. We take the necessary precautions to ensure your experience at Laser & Skin Surgery Center of Pennsylvania is comfortable and positive.

When will I see results?

Improvements in the tone and texture of your treatment area are apparent within days of your treatment, but multiple sessions may be needed to effectively minimize your scar. Your scar should gradually fade after each treatment.

How long is the recovery time after treatment?

Redness, swelling, and mild pain at the treatment site are common side effects of laser scar removal, but you should still be able to carry out your normal activities. Most side effects from laser treatment typically subside within a few days.
