Laser Scar Removal

Scar Removal for Acne Scars and Surgical Scars, All Skin Types and Excellent Outcomes

IPL and Laser Hair Removal Simplified for Practitioners and Clients Alike.

Acne scars and surgical scars may be a cause of a person's emotional and or physical pain and affect their quality of life. In severe cases, scars can even limit a person's mobility.

Surgical scar removal procedures are painful and invasive and have a risk for complications. Laser scar removal from Palomar® offers a noninvasive solution that uses fractional laser technology to deliver rapid, reliable scar removal with less risk, less pain and minimal downtime.

Our fractional laser technology is the driving power behind our acne and surgical scar removal procedure. We use pulses of laser light to coagulate scar tissue and trigger healthy new tissue to form in clients' skin.  Healing time is minimal, infection risk is eliminated and little to no pain is felt.

Laser scar removal with Palomar is appropriate for use on all skin types, making ours the preferred method of scar removal for excellent clinical outcomes.

The Palomar Solution Before & After Photos Clinical Studies

How Laser Scar Removal Works

Laser scar removal for acne and surgical scars uses fractional laser light to create micro-columns of coagulated tissue that extend deep into the dermis without ablating the epidermis.

This triggers a wound-healing process that replaces the disorganized, compacted scar tissue with healthy new tissue, greatly diminishing the appearance of the scar tissue. Advanced Contact Cooling protects the epidermis, promoting safer, more comfortable treatments.

Laser Scar Removal

While keeping the stratum corneum in place, the Lux1540 uses high-precision microbeams to create narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation in the epidermis and dermis.
