After using anesthesia, the dermatologist brings a laser device near the skin for treating scars. The device generates laser pulses to target the underlying scar tissues. The same step is repeated several times to produce instant and noticeable change. In the end, ice bags are used on the treated site to decrease the risk of chronic post-treatment inflammation.
