Safe, Successful Laser Treatments for Scars
What is laser scar removal?
Laser scar removal uses an FDA-approved fractional laser to minimize the appearance of acne and surgical scars on the face and body. Quick, simple, and suitable for all skin types, laser scar removal has become an incredibly popular treatment option for Focal Point Salon & Spa guests.
How does laser scar removal work?
Laser scar treatments use a specialized fractional laser light to trigger scar tissue breakdown, which then encourages new, healthy tissue to form. As the new tissue develops in the target area, the scar becomes more even in texture and color. Eventually, it becomes much less visible as it blends into the surrounding skin.

What to Expect from Laser Scar Treatment
You might be surprised to learn that laser scar removal is incredibly quick, only taking about 20 to 30 minutes per treatment session. This means you can easily fit in a treatment appointment on your lunch break, after work, or in between weekend errands!
Before your treatment
A Focal Point Salon & Spa team member will walk you through the pre-treatment recommendations so that you can be well-prepared. We’ll remind you to:
- Avoid sunbathing, waxing, tanning beds, collagen injections, or chemical peels for two weeks before the treatment.
- Immediately before and after the treatment, avoid perfumes, deodorants, and more.
- On the day of the treatment, don’t take aspirin, anti-inflammatory medications, or any supplements that could increase the risk of bleeding.
After your treatment
Laser scar removal requires virtually no recovery or downtime, and you can go back to your normal activities after treatment. It’s important to understand that the changes will take time, so your best results will appear within the next several weeks.
After laser scar treatment, the target area might be mildly sensitive, slightly swollen, or red for a few hours. You can use a moist cloth or cool pack to reduce any discomfort. We will give you post-treatment instructions, including reminders to:
- Avoid lotion or makeup for at least 24 hours or until all redness or sensitivity is gone.
- Use a high-quality moisturizer twice daily throughout your treatment plan and for a minimum of three months after you finish treatment.
