What are scars?
Scar, translated from German means scar tissues. This is a dense formation that appeared as a result of tissue repair after injury. Preferably consists of collagen and connective tissue cells. Differs in color and structure.
What is the difference between a scar and a scar tissue?
In fact, these are the two names of one manifestation on the skin. The difference arises in colloquial speech, where the scar is the resulting injury, and the scar tissue – a trace of surgery.
Scars caused by accidents or operations are unpredictable. They do not heal well, leaving visible traces. The easiest way to remove a scar after an accident is immediately after the tissue has healed. The older the scar, the more difficult it is to treat.
What factors affect wound scarring?
- Thickness and condition of the skin
- Color of the epidermis
- Method of healing (surgical suture or drug therapy).
Importantly! In complicated cases, the scar cannot be completely removed, but the use of laser scar removal significantly improves the appearance and condition of the scar.
The main types of scars on the face by method of purchase:
- Traumatic (animal bites and mechanical injuries)
- Thermal (burns)
- Traces of wind sickness
Old scars after chickenpox and postacne. The result after 4 x laser grinding procedures on a Coolaser laser in combination with microneedling.
Before starting treatment, it is extremely important to determine the condition and type of scar pathology. The method of treatment depends on it. It is best to entrust this stage of skin repair after injury to a specialist.
What are scars?
The simplest example of an atrophic scar is stretch marks on the skin. They also include traces of acne. Located below the upper layer of the epidermis.
Simple, superficial scars located on the upper layer of the epidermis. They are perfectly corrected by laser facial resurfacing. A fairly deep peel is able to remove scars after the first procedure.
Hypertrophic and Keloid.
Hypertrophic and keloid scars are formed as a result of severe damage to the epidermis. Kelloids do not heal well and tend to progress over time. A convex, obvious scar can eventually bring the owner a lot of discomfort. In particularly complex cases, large keloid scars are removed in two stages. First, cryodestruction is performed – removal of keloid scars with nitrogen, and the second stage – laser laser grinding of residual scars after cryodestruction.
To put it very simply, in the fight against scars is a difficult task to reduce the tissue and restore the epidermis – the upper part of the skin (see picture above).
How to remove scars on the face
The essence of the procedure is the exact direction of the light beam, which penetrates deep into the skin, subcutaneous tissue and dermis, causing microdamage.
The result is a photothermal reaction. The water in the skin tissue heats up at certain points and evaporates. This promotes the natural reconstruction of the skin and stimulates the formation of collagen – a substance responsible for the perfect condition of tissues.
Decreased collagen production causes skin aging, sagging and wrinkles. And the fractional laser, destroying the changed fabric, at the same time stimulates it to self-renewal.
The doctor uses a computer built into the laser to accurately select and modify the laser beam to pierce very thin micron channels in the dermis and epi. dermis.
Due to the soft and precise impact, the old, damaged epidermis is very gently damaged, keeping all the surrounding tissues intact. The body believes that this is an injury and automatically starts the process of regeneration and recovery.
Prior consultation is mandatory before each procedure, so that the cosmetologist can determine whether laser removal of facial scars in Kyiv will help solve the problem of this patient.
If there are no contraindications, make an individual treatment schedule – the required number of procedures and their frequency. If necessary, prescribe a combination of laser correction with other procedures, such as Plasmolifting or IPL Phototherapy.

What course of laser correction of scars on the face is necessary?
The duration of the course can be determined only by a specialist in a face-to-face consultation. Usually the number of sessions of laser scar removal depends on individual characteristics.
Depending on the complexity, size and type of scar, 2 to 6 or more procedures are prescribed.
After the session, redness appears on the skin and in rare cases a small swelling, which passes in 3-5 days.
The redness will gradually decrease and darken slightly. In places of processing the skin will become rough. It is recommended not to wash off and not to scratch roughness for 3 days.
In some cases, treatment is performed in combination with injection or surgical techniques.
If desired, additional laser correction is performed to obtain the best result. The expected results appear 3-6 weeks after the last session of laser scar removal. During this period, the skin is completely restored.
After burn scars can not be removed completely, but to make it less noticeable is quite real. The scar acquires the color of the surrounding tissues, changes structure and is torn out.
