SCAR REVISION

Scarring is an individual and unpredictable process.  Many variables can affect the severity of scarring, including the size and depth of the wound, the blood supply to the area, the thickness and color of your skin, and the direction of the scar.  While no scar can be completely removed, our surgeons can often improve the appearance of a scar, making it less obvious through the injection or application of certain steroid medications, use of laser, or through surgical procedures known as scar revisions. The type of procedure performed depends on each patient’s history and type of scar.  Learn more about scar revision.
