Hypertrophyc scars - Lotus Laser treatment - 22204

Burn scars

When the burn has been superficial, the skin usually regenerates and therefore there are no scars or only changes in color occur. For this type of burns, at Hoogstra Medical Centers we only use the Helios Laser to improve the texture and color of the lesion.

When the burn has affected the entire skin, raised scars and tissue retractions occur.

How to remove scars?
The word Laser comes from the English Light: amplifies, stimulated and radiant. This light is transformed into heat, which vaporizes the raised scars, lowering their thickness and aesthetically improving the burned tissue.

The Fractionated Carbon Dioxide Laser produces multiple perforations of the burned tissue which results in a new generation and remodeling of the tissue.

The combination of the Carbon Dioxide Laser in its superficial and deep ablative modality, produces surprising changes in burn scars. These changes on the surface are seen as a flattening of the tissue and in depth as a stimulation and remodeling.

Carbon Dioxide Laser treatment usually produces redness and edema that last from 2 weeks to a month, depending on the intensity and energy used. We do not see this effect when we perform the treatment with the Erbium Lotus Laser, the patient immediately continues with his normal life.

The Laser Lotus produces a slow and gradual improvement of all over-elevated scars, improving the texture and quality of the tissue.
