Laser skin treatment Treatment for Scar removal from Dr. Amanda Lloyd, North County San Diego

The Skin & Vein Institute understands your concerns!

Scars are the way your body heals itself. When skin is injured, the body produces collagen. This firm and flexible fiber reconnects wounded tissues. As this healing process occurs, sometimes the scar is barely noticeable however, sometimes the scar is readily apparent.
How the scar looks and how to treat it depends on many factors such as the depth, size and location of the wound, as well as you age, gender, ethnicity and DNA.
Keloid scars can be attributed to overly aggressive healing, which causes the scar to extend beyond the wound. When scars cross joints they can cause contractures and decreased range of motion. Acne can cause depressed boxcar, icepick, or rolling scars. Raised or hypertrophic scars occur when the body produces too much collagen during the healing process.

The power of laser – a single wavelength

Some practices invest in a single laser. Dr. Lloyd understands one size does not fit all. Her many devices are customized to your type of scar and its unique characteristics.
The laser is precisely applied to the scar. As energy is absorbed, damaged skin is removed to make way for new, unblemished tissue. The energy produces heat, which has the added benefit of stimulating the production of fresh collagen in underlying tissues.
In the skilled and highly-trained hands of Dr. Lloyd, the side effects of discomfort, swelling, discoloration, and bleeding are minimized.
