Scars can be painful both physically and emotionally. If they don’t heal well or don’t receive proper care at the time, scar tissue can be tough or uncomfortable. And sometimes more uncomfortable is their ability to drain confidence, especially if they remind us of a bad or traumatic experience. The good news is scars are very treatable, and with our Houston Laser Scar Treatment you can watch them fade or even eliminate them completely.

This technique uses a laser (concentrated beams of light) to change the appearance of acne, surgical, injury-related, burns, or other types of scars. The energy emitted from these lasers works by either removing the outer layers of skin to minimize the scar tissue or by stimulating new cell growth to hide the damaged, scarred cells. Laser scar treatment is a non-invasive or minimally invasive approach used to improve the texture, color, and overall visibility of scars almost anywhere on the body.
Laser scar treatment is an innovative solution that can help those who suffer from scarring to address the impact of scars on their appearance and self-esteem. This minimally invasive approach provides outstanding results and can be an effective solution for various types of scars. Our laser scar treatment patients enjoy:
- Reduced appearance of scars in texture and color
- Can be used for nearly any type of scar, including acne scars, burn scars, injury scars, and surgical scars
- Non-invasive, needle-free, no anesthesia needed treatment option
Since this treatment is suitable for virtually any skin type or tone, nearly any man or woman of any age who would like to address scarring that causes physical pain or emotional discomfort is a good candidate. Patients with active or inflamed skin conditions might need to avoid this treatment. If you’d like to find out if you’d make a good candidate for our laser scar treatment Houston experts at PS MedSpa can address that and answer any questions you have during an initial consultation.

Consultation & Preparation
At your laser skin treatment consultation, we will examine your skin and the scars to be treated, discuss any relevant health history, and create a personalized treatment plan that will best address your scarring concerns. Preparation for laser treatment is minimal and mainly involves avoiding sun exposure along with certain topicals for several days.
During the procedure, your skilled laser technician will cleanse your skin and gently apply the laser tool over the scar in the treatment area. In most cases, this procedure takes about 30 minutes or less. For optimal results, we may suggest a series of initial treatments over a few weeks.
Results, Recovery, & Aftercare
There is no required downtime after treatment, however, you may experience some redness or sensitivity, like a mild sunburn. Results should be visible over the course of several weeks as your skin gradually restores itself through collagen building and cell regeneration and the scar fades.
