Laser Treatments to Treat Scars
Many of our scar removal treatments are administered with lasers. We use lasers because they can offer some of the best outcomes for a range of different skin conditions. Using these devices well takes certification and proper training in addition to years of experience, and our clinic is dedicated to staying at the forefront of technology.
Diminish Scars With Lasers
More Comfortable Treatments
Modern laser treatments are more comfortable than they’ve ever been, and that includes scar removal treatments. Scars, in particular, can be a challenge because they’re often deep or cover a large area.
It is no longer necessary to go under the knife to solve problems like scars. Our laser treatments work on the surface of the skin, but can also penetrate deeply to affect more change, if required. Additionally, these modern lasers are even more effective at targeting precise areas of the skin, so even the smallest scars can be easily treated.
Outcomes for our newest laser treatments would have been stunning only a few years ago. The latest technology is effective at dealing with scars that could not be effectively treated even in the recent past. If you were once a poor candidate for removal, you may want to consider another appointment to discuss new options.

"I had excellent results with a Coolsculpting operation at this clinic. Dr. Crippen took me through everything I wanted to know before we started, and I was still surprised at how easy it was. It took a little longer than I would have liked for the results to kick in, but I didn’t change anything and I lost weight." – Ami Hamann
