Laser Treatment Q & A

by Sejal Shah, MD, FAAD

What is laser hair removal?

Lasers are a preferred option for semi-permanent removal of unwanted hair. Lasers are sensitive and gentle enough to treat areas like the face, leg, arm, underarm, bikini line and other areas. Because laser hair removal is a medical procedure, it should only be performed by a qualified technician with the required training to perform it safely and properly. Dr. Shah provides laser hair removal at her clinic, SmarterSkin Dermatology.

What is laser scar removal?

Today, laser scar removal techniques have become one of the best methods to reduce the appearance of scarring on the skin. The types of scars that can be treated include the following:

Keloid Scarring: These are firm, raised, and a dark reddish-purple scars that extends far past the initial wound area. Keloid scars build up over a period of time.

Hypertrophic Scarring: Also firm and raised on the skin, these scars are a pink hue and remain within the initial wound area.

Atrophic Scarring: Depressed pin-like pockets in the skin that can result from skin conditions or diseases such as acne.

Dr. Shah at SmarterSkin Dermatology has expertise in treating these and other scars through the use of laser treatments. Not everyone is a candidate for laser scar removal. Contact the office to find out if you are a candidate for laser scar removal.
