About Laser Scar Treatments
When you have a healed scar from a surgery, stretch marks, scars with textural issues, or traumatic injury scars, these flaws in your skin can be embarrassing and impossible to hide. With the Cutera Laser Genesis or Venus Visa laser systems provided to you by our certified aesthetics team, you can have a less visible scar to help you look and feel your best. Our board-certified dermatologist at Summerlin Dermatology, Dr. Reuel Aspacio, offers laser scar treatments that are noninvasive treatments with excellent results. The laser scar removal sessions in our Las Vegas, NV office are comfortable and require no downtime. You can also reduce the appearance of scars without harming the surrounding skin in the treatment area.
With our state-of-the-art treatment options, we can treat a range of scar conditions with a high-powered laser that uses targeted pulses of light to repair the skin. Our lasers are versatile and can be adjusted to suit a variety of skin types and tones, as well as expanded to treat larger trouble areas with precision. When administered by an experienced dermatologist, such as Dr. Aspacio, patients can expect reliable and effective results.

"Dr. Aspacio is the best! My last dermatologist did my annual skin check so quickly that I was worried about something being missed. It was a joke. But Dr. Aspacio takes his time and does an extremely thorough check, explaining what he is seeing as he goes. I feel confident now when I leave there that I'm getting what I need. This doctor is a keeper! In addition, his attitude and friendly, warm demeanor make the visit a joy. One last thing...everyone else from the office staff to his assistant are also very friendly and efficient. I am so glad I switched to this doctor and can recommend the place without any hesitation."- J.L. / Google / Apr 18, 2019

"This is by far the best medical practice experience I've had since living in Las Vegas for a year. I believe my RN was Alice Dreyfus. She spent time with me and was personal. A quality so rare to find these days in the medical field. She went over all of my concerns with me. The office was clean, neat, professional. I will definitely be back. Thank you Summerlin Derm. for you professionalism, kindness, and customer service. Keep it up."- M.D. / Yelp / Apr 03, 2019
To be considered for a laser scar treatment, you may be searching for an alternative to other treatments like chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or a surgical procedure instead. Patients with scars that just won't fade, skin damage from rosacea, stretch marks, deep acne scars, or irregularities in the tone and texture of the skin are all great candidates for laser scar treatment. Our dermatology team and Dr. Aspacio can assess your scar and the surrounding skin to see if you qualify for this scar removal technique.
We will take you to one of our private laser treatment rooms to prepare you for the procedure. In your treatment planning session, it should be determined if an anesthetic will be used. Depending on the laser and laser setting, light energy is applied to the treatment area only to stimulate the creation of collagen and to resurface the top layer of skin. You can enjoy a relatively comfortable procedure as an innovative cooling technology will provide a continuous coolness to your skin throughout the treatment. You will be able to resume your day as normal. Please keep in mind that you will need to protect the skin from sun damage at all times (as it is best for your skin while it is sensitive to light after a laser treatment).
What to Expect
Following a treatment, some patients may experience minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, or bruising on the treated area, however, these effects will typically disappear within a few hours to a few days. You will typically see dramatic results after just one session, but the results will vary patient-to-patient depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Because this treatment can be repeated, it remains at the forefront of noninvasive anti-scar skin treatments. If you have negative side effects (such as excessive pain, fever, or discharge), please call our office for assistance.
