C-Section Scar Treatment

Cosmetic imperfections such as a C-section scar can be a source of concern and insecurity for women. Many C-section scars can heal quite nicely, but if signs of a C-section scar are still prevalent, the Kaga Institute provides procedures that can help.


There are two procedures that we use to reduce a C-section scar:

Pearl Laser Resurfacing with Cutera Xeo
Pearl skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy can dramatically overhaul your complexion by correcting a variety of skin conditions, including dyspigmentation, photoaging, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, irregular skin texture, and acne scarring.

Laser Resurfacing with Cutera Juliet
Juliet skin resurfacing fractional laser therapy is ideal for patients with sun damage, discoloration, uneven skin tone and texture, scarring, and poor elasticity due to aging. Skin is resurfaced to reveal healthier, more even skin with 1-3 treatments.


Either procedure can help reduce the signs of C-Section scar.


The treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes.

Women should treat their C-section scars within 6 to 8 weeks for optimal results, as we see higher success rates with newer scars. Results are seen in 2 to 6 sessions, and are permanent.

Patients typically experience a warm prickling sensation on the skin. Many people consider the feeling to be quite tolerable.

Redness and swelling are common for 3 to 5 days following the procedure. While the skin regenerates, it is essential to apply sunscreen daily. You can apply make-up and shave 24 hours after treatment.
