How does the healing process work?

Skin healing is a complex process that involves three stages:

What are the problems of scarring?

Normally after 6 months, a scar should be soft and painless. However, scarring disorders can lead to unattractive scars.

The speed and quality of healing depends on the general health of the individual, the aetiology of the injury, the condition and location of the wound and whether or not an infection has occurred. Thus, disruption of any of these phases can lead to delayed or complicated wound healing, and thus to a chronic wound.

Among the most common wound healing disorders are

  • Defective scars
  • Hypertrophic scars
  • Keloidal scars
  • Adherent scars
  • Parrot's ladder scars

Most scars can be treated with a laser. Laser technology can considerably reduce the different types of scars on the body and on the face. A first consultation with a specialist is nevertheless mandatory in order to validate their eligibility and to set up the treatment protocol.

How does the Fraxel laser treatment work to eliminate scars?

The laser is the most effective method for significantly reducing scars.

If you wish to have your treatment at Turó Park Clinics, an initial consultation will be carried out in order to establish a treatment plan and an estimate. This first appointment will also determine the number of sessions required to achieve the desired result.

Depending on the type of scars, an anaesthetic cream may be prescribed by the doctor. This should be applied every 15 minutes, one hour before your treatment.

Scar treatment is performed with the Frax 1550 applicator of the Nordlys™ device. This fractional laser sends pulses in ms with a wavelength of 1550 nm and targets water which allows all skin to be treated without the risk of burning. The session generally lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area to be treated.

How do I prepare for a Fraxel laser session?

At your appointment, please come with clean skin, without make-up or cream.

Before and after the treatment, make sure to protect your skin. Avoid direct sun exposure and exfoliation.

Our answers to the most frequently asked questions about laser treatment of scars

Is laser treatment of scars painful?

The treatment can be a little uncomfortable, so we recommend the use of an anaesthetic cream. After the treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to a slight sunburn on the skin for a few hours.

How can I be sure that my scar will disappear with the laser?

It is impossible to predict in advance the result that will be obtained on the disappearance of the scar, because many factors come into play. On the other hand, laser sessions guarantee a very significant attenuation of the scar to make it as discreet as possible.

How many laser sessions are needed to reduce scars with the Fraxel laser?

On average, between 3 and 7 sessions are required for optimal results. The sessions should be spaced out at intervals of one month. However, only the doctor can determine the number of sessions to be planned according to your personal situation.
