Most scars Hydrolift willheal or diminish through time but there are types that do not (some even get worse!). For many of us, that rough and swollen patch of skin can become a lifetime reminder of that unfortunate accident or skin problem.The good news is that science has enabled us to increase our understanding of our skin and technology has given us the tools to use that understanding to solve our problems.Many of us still have that desire to improve our well being through the improvement of physical appearance and sometimes scars on our skin can may cause anxiety and may go against that desire. Thus, in such situations, scars may be considered a problem that calls for solutions. One such solution is laser scar treatment. Laser scar treatment works by moving the laser along the skin "vaporizing" its top layer to reveal the one beneath which should look more natural which after healing will help flatten and diminish the appearance of scar tissue.There are also a laser scar removal method where the top layer of the skin is not targeted but the layers below. This is with the aim of stimulating the underlying skin structure to stimulate proper collagen growth. This method is more of an inside out scar treatment method.During laser procedures, localized or general anesthesia may be used. There are various types of laser scar removal treatments. One type may be good for certain types of scars but not for others. For example, CO2 and Erbium YAG lasers are most appropriate for scars caused by acne while Cynosure and Candela lasers are more suitable for hypertrophic or keloid scarring.Laser treatment is not for everyone though so caution is advised especially to those with special skin condition like dermatitis, psoriasis and skin allergies. It is best to ask for multiple opinions from professionals if you wish to undertake any laser scar treatment procedure.Did you know there are effective non surgical skin tightening procedures you can do to keep your skin firm and smooth?
