NYC’s Best Laser Scar Reduction & Stretch Mark Removal
W8MD is proud to announce the advanced laser technology for the best scar and stretch mark management at affordable prices for laser treatments in our Brooklyn, New York office.
How does one get scars?
Scars form when the normal healing process is impeded by other factors and collagen layers form out of order.
Laser scar and stretch mark treatment is a well proven non-surgical procedure that uses pulses of fractional laser light to break down stretch marks and improve the appearance of your skin. It’s a fast and easy treatment that typically takes 30 minutes, yet it can deliver superior, long-lasting results for smoother, better-looking skin without surgery.
Laser stretch mark removal is an FDA cleared treatment that is fast and easy.
Frequently asked questions about laser scar reduction treatments in New York City
What are the benefits of laser scar treatments in NYC?
- Our laser scar treatments in New York City have the following benefits
- Prevent a raised scar from forming after surgery
- Reduce scar pain and itch
- Increase your range of motion if a scar limits movement
Can the laser scar treatments completely get rid of the scars?
No. Laser treatment can also make a scar less noticeable, but it cannot get rid of a scar. When you have laser scar treatment, you’re essentially replacing one scar with another less-noticeable scar.
Is the experience of the laser operator a factor in the results?
Yes. Your laser scar treatment results depend largely on the skills of the person performing the laser treatment. In the hands of an experienced laser operator, laser treatment can safely treat many types of scars.
What should I tell the aesthetic medicine physician regarding my medical history before scar reduction laser treatments?
Tell your aesthetic physician if you:
- Get cold sores
- Have diabetes or other medical conditions
- Take any medications or supplements
How many treatment sessions are needed for scar reduction?
It depends on many factors including the nature of the scar, your skin type, age, and medical conditions.
What should I avoid after laser treatments?
Sun protection is crucial before and after laser treatment. If you show up for laser treatment with a tan or sunburn, your dermatologist cannot treat you. Using a laser could cause a serious burn or discolor your skin. After having laser treatment, you’ll need to protect your skin from the sun until your skin heals. If the sun’s harmful rays hit your treated skin, you can develop another scar.
What lifestyle changes do I need to make a few lifestyle changes before treatment?
To heal well and get the best results from laser treatment, you should:
Quit smoking for at least 2 weeks before laser treatment.
- Stop taking vitamin E, aspirin, and other medications and supplements that can delay healing.
- Stop using skin care products that contain a retinoid or glycolic acid for 2 to 4 weeks.
- Take medication to prevent getting cold sores if you’re prone to developing cold sores.
- Avoid the sun, tanning bed, or sunlamp. You cannot be treated if you have a tan or sunburn.
How many sessions are needed?
Typically, laser scar removal treatment requires three to five sessions spaced two to four weeks apart to see maximal results. Contact W8MD for a free consultation to develop a personalized treatment plan, unique to individual scars and skin types.
Does it hurt?
The laser technician will apply a gentle numbing cream to help avoid any discomfort during the laser procedure. Sunburn-like symptoms may persist for a few days following treatment but typically subside quickly.
Can this also work stretch mark reduction?
Absolutely. The same lasers can treat both stretch marks and scars as both these conditions involve collagen.
