Get rid of an old scar with the help of a laser method in Lviv
Laser scar removal is a procedure that helps get rid of skin defects of different ages. The effect of the laser beam is distinguished due to its destructive nature.
The process is as follows:
- The laser device provides the necessary beam, which affects skin defects.
- It is possible to get rid of acne scars and thus increase the elasticity of the skin on the affected areas.
- By adjusting the depth of laser resurfacing, the specialist evens out the surface of the skin, which becomes uniform.
The procedure of scars resurfacing is carried out in several stages. On average, for complete removal of such defects on the skin from 4 to 5 sessions are required. Under the influence of a laser beam, gradual damage to cells is noted, in the place of which new ones appear. At the same time, the body will start the process of active production of collagen and elastin.
Laser scar removal allows achieving a positive effect in 98% of cases. To get the desired result you need to take a full course (the exact number of sessions is determined by the doctor, after diagnosing the body).
