Laser therapy for scar removal

✔ Long-term reduction of scars

✔ Effective against acne, scars from surgery and accidents

✔ More self-confidence and higher quality of life

Scars can occur after an operation, an injury, an accident or as a result of skin diseases such as acne. The more prominent the scars are, the more they are perceived as a burden and a restriction of the quality of life by those affected. This applies in particular to scars on the face. Aesthetic laser medicine can help; scars on the skin can be visibly reduced with laser beams.

Everything you need to know about laser therapy for scar removal

Here you will find all the important information about the treatment of scars by laser in our dermatological beauty practice in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

In laser scar treatment, a so-called fractional laser emits light pulses onto the skin. The pulses remove the scar tissue and at the same time stimulate the formation of collagen, replacing the damaged skin with fresh and healthy skin.

The range of applications of the laser against scars is broad: it helps with stretch marks and acne scars as well as sunken and protruding scars, which can be levelled or smoothed.

The scars can usually be noticeably reduced so that they are often hardly visible. However, we cannot promise complete removal of the scar, especially in the case of large and old scars.

Not really. There are various ointments and creams on the market to alleviate scars, but in most cases the effect – if any – is very small. 

In our practice we work with the laser “Alma Harmony XL Pro”, one of the best medical lasers available on the market. The state-of-the-art device offers tailored treatment solutions for every skin type and patient age group thanks to the effective combination of therapies.

The Alma Harmony XL Pro is approved for 65 medical and cosmetic treatments and accordingly has a wide range of applications. In addition to the reduction and removal of scars, these include the treatment of spider veins and other skin problems, skin tightening and permanent hair removal.

Extensive clinical studies have proven each technique and treatment with our type of laser to be safe to conduct by a trained medical professional.

One treatment takes about 45 minutes. The number of required treatments depends on the size and shape of the scar. Often 2 to 3 sessions are sufficient. However, in the case of large scars, five sessions at intervals of six weeks may be necessary. The full effect is seen about 2 to 4 weeks after the last session.

Treatment with the fractional laser is relatively painless. Before the procedure, we apply an anaesthetic cream to make the treatment as comfortable as possible.

The use of the laser causes redness, slight swelling or small scabs on the treated area. However, these usually disappear after 14 days at the latest, usually much earlier.

In the first few days after the laser treatment, you should apply a high-quality skin care product without any additives. Furthermore, refrain from strenuous activities that cause you to sweat, as the sweat can burn the treated area. 

In addition, you should protect the scar from strong sunlight with sun cream (sun protection factor 50) for 6 weeks after the treatment. Visiting a solarium and using self-tanning lotions are a no go during this time.

The price for a session starts from 500 Euros for self-payers. In some cases, treatment costs are covered by private health insurance. Please clarify this directly with your health insurance.
