The Appearance of Scars and Striae
Scars can be treated in a variety ways with Aerolase laser technology.
The Era is used to ablate skin along incision lines, post-suturing, to minimize raised scar formation, and to resurface scar tissue. LightPod 1064nm lasers are used to remove vascularity and other pigmentation from existing scars to make them less noticeable.
Two distinct modalities to minimize & reduce appearance of scars
Ability to tailor treatment to scar type
Improves both skin texture and pigment
How Have We Advanced the Treatment of Scars and Striae?
Aerolase provides laser technology for two different methods of treating scars. For the treatment of incisions post-suturing, to minimize raised scar formation, the Era is used to ablate along the incision line; this promotes evenness of skin healing and the heat from the laser energy stimulates the formation of new collagen, further improving the surface texture and uniformity. For the treatment of existing scars, the Era can be used to reduce the raised scar tissue and improve texture, while the Neo is used to target pigment including red (vascularity) and brown (hyperpigmentation) to improve the cosmetic appearance of the scar.
