Dr. Battle and his staff of skin experts at Cultura Dermatology and Laser Center provide effective cosmetic dermatological treatments for scar reduction for patients who are bothered by such scars. Lasers can tighten collagen and thus reduce the size, height and width of raised scars. Lasers can stimulate pigment to darken light scars and reduce pigment to lighten dark scars. Lasers can stimulate the production of more collagen, like adding air to a balloon, pushing out indented scars and improving the scar's texture.
