Almost everyone has scars. Scrapes on the knees and elbows are common during childhood and often turn into scars shown off like a badge of honor. While some scars can be a rite of passage and come with a great story, that’s not true for all of them. Some scars can negatively affect your self-esteem, especially when they are on your face and neck. Men and women turn to the Laser and Skin Surgery Center for scar revision for problem scars.
What is Scar Revision?
Scar revision treatment at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center may include fillers, cortisone injections, surgery or laser treatments. Different types of scarring require customized approaches. The treatment plan is designed to address your unique scars.
Dermal fillers and microneedling can improve and minimize the appearance of depressed scars. Red and raised scars are often treated with cortisone injections and laser treatments. During your consultation, Dr. Diwan will review your best options to improve the appearance of your scar(s) and confidence.
Scar revision treatments are typically performed in the office. How long a treatment takes depends on the specific procedure. Dermal fillers typically only take a few minutes, while laser treatments can take over an hour. Your recovery time is also dependent on the type of treatment, but could be minimal.
