Scar treatment at Dermacare in Vienna
Scars occur after injuries when the uppermost and deeper layers of the skin are injured. Then the body can no longer completely restore the skin and forms replacement tissue. This scar tissue is less elastic and can therefore be distinguished visually and sometimes even perceptibly from the surrounding skin. How strong the tendency to scarring always depends on the individual wound healing.
Scars can become a cosmetic problem, especially in highly visible areas such as the face or the hands and arms. A remedy for this is laser treatment with the CO2 laser at Dermacare in Vienna. This innovative laser is not only used for pigment spots or wrinkles, it also effectively removes annoying scars.
Removing scars with the fractional CO2 laser
During scar correction at Dermacare, a high-frequency laser beam removes the upper layers of skin and thus removes the scars. The surrounding intact tissue is not damaged by the precise irradiation. The thermal energy generated during the laser treatment stimulates new skin formation and boosts collagen production. As a result, the skin is comprehensively renewed, smoothed and tightened and scars become smooth and invisible.
After just one session with the fractional CO2 laser, the skin texture is visibly improved and superficial scars have disappeared. For more pronounced and deeper scar tissue, several treatments are necessary in most cases, in the course of which the skin appearance steadily improves.
On average, 3 to 5 treatments at intervals of 4 to 6 weeks are necessary for an optimal result. The specialists at Dermacare will be happy to advise you on the expected course of treatment and give you an estimate of the number of sessions required for scar removal.
All-round talent CO2 Laser
The fractional CO2 laser is a carbon dioxide laser that is used in aesthetic medicine as well as in dermatology. The fractionated method means that the laser beam is no longer applied over a wide area, but distributed over many small points. This makes treatment with the fractionated CO2 laser much gentler and the healing process shorter. Depending on the intensity of the scar treatment, healing takes about 3 to 5 days. The laser treatment itself is almost painless.
In addition to scar treatment, the fractional CO2 laser is also used at Dermacare for skin rejuvenation and skin correction. This modern laser enables gentle treatment of sun damage and wrinkles, for example on the face and neck. Through the regeneration of collagen and elastin, the application leads to a taut, smooth and fresh skin appearance and firm tissue.
Treatment with the CO2 laser is recommended for:
- Facial treatment for skin rejuvenation and skin tightening
- Skin rejuvenation on the neck / décolleté / hands
- Treatment of uneven pigmentation, sun spots, age spots and pigment spots
- Wrinkle treatment perioral / around the mouth, so-called smoker’s wrinkles, smile lines
- Wrinkle treatment periorbital / around the eyes: eyelid lift, lower eyelid lift, upper eyelid lift, crow’s feet
- Acne scars and scar treatment
- Stretch marks/pregnancy marks

Treatment procedure Scar removal
The treatment procedure for removing scars in Vienna with Dermacare is explained in detail below. An anamnesis questionnaire is completed before each initial treatment. This allows possible risks to be identified and prevented.
This is followed by a detailed preliminary talk with Dr. András Cseh, specialist in dermatology, or with Dr. Olga Latowa, general practitioner. Prepare yourself for the interview and talk openly about your wishes and expectations.
Digital photo / desinfection / anesthesia
Before each treatment a digital photo of your skin is taken to document your treatment progress in detail. The skin is desinfected and if necessary anesthetized with an anesthetic cream.
The skin area is then treated with the special CO2 laser. To make the treatment more pleasant, the skin is cooled with cold air.
Cooling of the lasered area
After the treatment, a cool pack is placed on the treated area for 10 minutes.
An antiseptic cream is applied to prevent inflammation.
The immediate reaction of the skin to the treatment is often slight redness and swelling, which disappears by itself. A thin crust then forms in the lasered region. For the post-treatment of the crust, ointments and creams are available to support the healing process of the skin.
