What Is The Cynergy™ Pulsed Dye Laser? 

The Cynergy™ Pulsed Dye laser delivers an intense but gentle burst of yellow light to the surface of the skin, where it is absorbed by cells within the scar to flatten out the excessive collagen. This results in reduced redness and a more even texture. This type of scar treatment was introduced in the mid-1990s and is one of the safest and most widely used lasers for scar treatment. It utilizes a cool air device that accompanies the laser pulse, protecting the skin and making the treatment very comfortable.

Is the treatment painful, and is downtime required?

Laser scar revision is quite tolerable, and though no topical anesthetic is required, it may be used. The skin is protected during the treatment with a cold air device, which flows during each pulse of the laser. Most patients will experience a small amount of redness in the skin for about 1-3 days after the treatment, but this should not interfere with any planned activities at home or at work.

How many treatments are required and at what interval?

We generally provide a series of treatments, spaced 3-4 weeks apart. Depending on the nature of the condition being treated, it may require 3-6 treatments, or possibly more.

What is the cost for treatment?

Cost ranges from $275-$5,000 depending on the type, location, and extent of scarring.
