About Laser Scar Treatments

Scars can be a symbol of bravery – a sign that we overcame something significantly painful that could have potentially held us back. But for some, scars are an unsightly reminder of acne, surgery, or a trauma that they would rather disguise or eliminate. These individuals are invited to learn more about Cutera XEO laser scar treatment at GLO Laser & Med Spa in Houston, TX. Led by Dr. Yujing Li, our aesthetic team uses Cutera XEO technology to treat and reduce unwanted scars on the face and/or body to help patients achieve smoother and clearer skin they can be proud of. As we have prioritized the use of advanced technology, laser scar treatment is both noninvasive and nonsurgical with patients able to return to work, school, or home immediately after their session. Contact our helpful team today to schedule your laser scar treatment consultation. 

Ideal Candidates

Patients who are ideal candidates for laser scar treatment may have considered chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or a surgical procedure but have decided that a noninvasive procedure is a better option. Before our team plans your laser scar treatment, we will assess your scar and inform you of your treatment options. Patients who benefit most from Cutera XEO laser scar treatment have scars that just won't fade. If you have moderate acne scars or scarring from a trauma, an accident, or a skin condition, you may be a great candidate for this procedure.

Procedure Technique

Before your procedure begins, you will be led back to one of our minor procedure rooms and helped to get comfortable in one of our treatment chairs. If you have requested anesthesia, this will be applied topically after your face is cleansed and prepped for treatment. Next, the Cutera XEO handpiece will be slowly and meticulously applied to your scar(s) where the laser energy will target the scar tissue and resurface the scar while stimulating the production of collagen for smooth healing. Cutera XEO technology contains a built-in cooling system so that your skin remains cool and safe throughout the process. Patients typically find the procedure tolerable. 

What to Expect

Immediately after treatment, you may experience redness, swelling, and bruising around the treated area. These effects will fade within an hour or so after your session has ended. Many patients notice dramatic results after just one session, but results can vary from one patient to the next. Depending on the severity and size of the scar, you may need repeat sessions to achieve optimal results. Patients rarely report serious side effects with laser scar treatment, but if you experience pain hours after treatment, contact GLO Laser & Med Spa for medical advice.
