Laser scar treatment

at Dr Deborah McManners’ clinic

Traditionally difficult to treat, acne and surgical scars can really affect confidence and self-esteem as well as causing functional issues and feelings of tightness. Advances in laser technology mean that it’s now possible to target scarring effectively in safe a non-invasive way. Dr McManners’ expertise in this area combined with powerful fractional laser therapy makes scarring less visible in treated areas leaving skin smoother and clearer.*

Laser scar treatment uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach below the epidermis into the skin’s sub layers. Using advanced technology, miniscule dot or pixel-like formations of skin are selected to effectively treat the skin’s support structures. Older, damaged tissue is broken down by the body’s natural healing process and rebuilt with fresh, new collagen and elastin. As the building blocks of healthy-looking skin, scarring is reduced and skin is rejuvenated.*

Unlike traditional surgery, the treatment does not affect healthy, surrounding skin and there is very little downtime or discomfort. Many of our patients have experienced excellent outcomes with this non-invasive therapy that’s tried, tested and trusted.*

Your questions answered

  1. What does laser scar treatment involve?

    This innovative technology delivers a large number of micro-dots of laser energy per square centimetre of skin treated. It does not wound or remove any skin (non-ablative). The energy creates narrow, deep columns of tissue coagulation into the skin’s deeper layers. This triggers the body’s natural healing response which boosts production of collagen and elastin helping to reduce the appearance of scarring.* The fractional laser is applied via a hand-held device.

  2. How do you select the technology for the treatment?

    Dr McManners handpicked a superior technology that delivers greater energy per microbeam with more penetration (up to 1mm) than peer/competing devices. This stimulates quick healing within the surrounding deep tissue for more effective skin correction and long-term collagen remodelling.*

  3. How many treatments will I need?

    This does depend on the severity of scarring, but most patients have from 3 to 7 treatments for the best potential results.*

  4. Does the treatment hurt?

    The laser technology has an advanced cooling feature which also reduces any discomfort. Most patients experience a mild prickling and/or warm sensation.*

  5. What should I expect after treatment?

    Skin may appear flushed and pink but most of our patients are able to carry on with normal life immediately after the treatment.* It’s important to use a sunscreen of SPF30 to 60.

  6. Are there any side effects?

    Side effects are rare but can include mild swelling, redness and skin flaking. There is a low risk of itching, redness and blistering as well as lightening or darkening of the skin.*


Individual results may vary.

“I lived with acne from my teens into my 20s and the scarring left behind was very noticeable. The skin was pitted so covering the scarring with make-up was really difficult. Laser scar treatment with Dr McManners has given me my confidence back. The scarring is much less obvious and my skin is smoother.”
