How Does the Treatment Work?
The Laser Scar Removal in Islamabad, Rawalpindi & Pakistan works by targeting the scars with high-energy laser light. The laser heats the tissues underneath the skin stimulating it to produce new cells and collagen. This heals up the damaged cells that cause scars reducing their appearance and clearing up the skin.
The first step in any treatment is to find the clinic and dermatologist from where the treatment is to be done. When visiting the dermatologist, the patient needs to convey properly any problems they face and their expectations from the treatment. The doctor then carries out a thorough initial checkup to confirm the person’s eligibility for the procedure. This includes reviewing the patient’s medical history, checking their vitals, examining the region to be treated, and carrying out any blood tests that may be necessary.
Once the checkup is complete, the candidate is given several pre-procedure guidelines to prepare them for their treatment:
- The skin should be protected from the sun as sunburnt skin is not ideal for the procedure
- Smoking should be avoided for a minimum of two weeks before the treatment
- Blood thinning medications, pain killers, supplements, multivitamin tablets, and any other medicine that slows the recovery process should also be avoided
- Any skincare products containing acids or other chemicals should be stopped for weeks before the therapy
The treatment is carried out by first numbing the region so that the procedure can be as comfortable as possible. The dermatologist uses a laser beam of different intensities depending on the nature of the scar and the recipient’s skin.
- First, the skin is cleaned with cotton containing disinfecting solution to remove any makeup, bacteria, or dirt from the skin’s surface.
- Then the doctor marks the region on the skin with a pen where the laser is to be targeted
- An anesthetic ointment is applied to desensitize the skin. This has to be applied for a minimum of half an hour or one hour depending on the type of ointment used and its effect on the skin
- When the skin is desensitized, the dermatologist starts the treatment
- A laser device is used that is moved across the skin on the scars according to the markings
- Several sessions are required to get the desired results. The actual sessions needed depends on the scars and the patient’s response to the treatment
- The last step is to apply a cold compress and a regenerative or soothing cream to the treatment region for a soothing effect.
- The recipient needs to protect their skin from sunlight for at least the first two or three days
