According to the German News Agency, doctors defined the scar as a type of replacement tissue, which the body produces, in order to close wounds, whatever their cause: burns, cuts, surgeries, or even acne scars… and others.

And the doctors followed, the scars differ in terms of shape, spread, and even treatment methods, which are determined by a dermatologist or cosmetic surgery.

The uses of laser in the medical field have been numerous due to its wide capabilities in various types of treatments including scars treatment. Its use in this field has given impressive results, as it treats the damaged skin tissue (scar), directly, without affecting the surrounding tissues, because the laser is applied to the specific area. It creates a number of very small holes, which leads to the removal of scar tissue, which also tightening of tissues due to collagen, whose production was stimulated by the laser; This results in tighter and smoother skin.

Laser treatment is good for surgical scars and acne scars, but it needs patience, as it can take a relatively long time, and many sessions, depending on the size of the scar.

  1. Scar Removal with Micro-Needling:

Here, a device is used with very fine needles, which are inserted into the skin at a rate of 1,000 times per minute, and the principle which this device depends on is to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin, which leads to the renewal of its tissues and the production of new, healthier and smoother skin cells.

This treatment requires several sessions, which may be at least 3 sessions, depending on the size of the scar.

  1. Removal of Scars through Surgical Intervention:

This method is used in cases of large scars that have no benefit from laser or acupuncture treatment, so cutting and re-suturing is the easiest and fastest way.

  1. Removal of Scars through Cortisone Treatment:

This is done by injecting cortisone into the tissues of the skin where the scar is, through thin needles, which is a good method with thick scars, as it prevents scar cells from growing more, and prevents inflammation.

This method requires repeated injections several times, and its disadvantages are that it is painful and can cause skin pigmentation disorders and thinning.
