Laser Scar Reduction
The Center for Laser Surgery has more than 25 years experience in the treatment of the entire spectrum of facial acne scars, surgical scars and scars secondary to trauma or auto accidents. Please call 202-966-8814 to schedule a complimentary scar removal / scar revision consultation.
Acne scars can appear as depressed or uneven areas of the face, small holes in the skin called "ice pick" scars or raised red or pink scars. Our treatment of these types of scars involves the use of a wide variety of lasers, innovative filler materials, surgical punch grafting and sub scission providing a multi faceted approach to this serious problem.
Previously, acne scar removal was traditionally treated with Erbium and Carbon Dioxide laser resurfacing. While these procedures can yield excellent results, they do require post-care and several days of post procedure downtime. The revolutionary Fraxel Laser Treatment now provides comparable results with little to no post-procedure downtime.

In addition to Fraxel treatment we have a wide variety of revolutionary dermal fillers such as Juvederm & Restylane to help raise depressed acne scars for a smoother skin appearance.

Surgical & Traumatic Scars
Surgical scars often present themselves as keloids, hypertrophic, or depressed areas with our without associated Erythema (redness). Depending on the type and severity of these scars these can be treated with Fraxel, Pulsed Dye, Erbium, and Carbon Dioxide lasers, or in the case of depressed scars fillers can be used to smooth out the skin surface at the scar reducing the scar's appearance.
