The appearance of white scars can be effectively reduced through Xtract Laser Therapy. Xtract is ideal for reaching hard-to-treat areas and successfully treats patients with mild to moderate scarring. Xtract Lasers have the useful property that they can remove exceptionally fine layers of surface material with almost no heating or change to the remainder of the material which is left intact. While Xtract is an excellent option for treating mild, white-colored acne scars, this technology is also effective in adding pigmentation back onto the skin of patients with Vitiligo.
The Xtract Laser delivers a precisely targeted, high dose of ultraviolet light to the scarred tissue through a handpiece that rests directly on the skin. Treatment takes about 5 minutes. A series of 6-10 treatments are typically required to reduce the appearance of scars.
