What’s A Scar & How It Heals?
Laser Scar Treatment, Injury to the skin initiates a cascade of events that is collectively known as wound healing. Wound healing attempts to restore the barrier function as well the tensile strength to the injured skin.
When healing deviates from its orderly pattern, abnormal scarring can result.
Although pigment and vascular alterations are often back to normal, textural changes caused by collagen disruption can be permanent.
The wound-healing process is divided into 3 sequential yet overlapping stages known as inflammation, granulation, and remodeling.
The purpose of this article is to review the strengths of current laser technology used to improve the appearance of the scars and acne scars.
Researchers reported clinical and textural improvement in long-standing scars, with 57% improvement following one treatment and 83% improvement after 2 treatments.
No consensus exists regarding the mechanism by which the Laser Scar Treatment achieves clinical improvement in scars. It is thought that laser-induced micro pulse softens scar tissue leading to collagen degradation.
Thermal damage to collagen fibers dissipated from adjacent vessels will bond a collagen realignment. Increased regional mast cells will serve to stimulate collagen resulting in remodeling of the Laser Scar Treatment area.
As a result, improving and in some cases eliminating scars.
