Innovative help for burn scars

Legacy Health offers laser treatment for burn scars. Laser scar therapy is designed to reduce stiffness and improve the appearance of scars.  It also often reduces itchiness. 

Laser light is concentrated, making it a very powerful and precise tool. 

Lasers may be used to smooth a scar, remove the abnormal color of a scar, or flatten a scar. Most laser therapy for scars is performed in conjunction with other treatments.

For more information or for an appointment with one of our specialists, call the Legacy Chronic Wound and Outpatient Burn Clinic: 503-413-3311.
