WHAT IS LASER SCAR TREATMENT?
Having a scar on the face or body is very common, usually resulting from an injury, acne, or a previous surgery. Regardless of what caused a scar, many men and women may want to reduce its appearance for cosmetic reasons. At Comprehensive Medical Aesthetics, medical director Dr. Rudolph Moise offers laser scar treatments with the cutting-edge Alma Harmony XL PRO system. The targeted energy of the laser works within the skin to diminish the color and size of a scar so it blends into the surrounding area, helping your scar to appear less visible.
