Scars


Scars

Scars are the result of your body’s natural ability to heal itself. While this is desirable from a health perspective, they present cosmetic issues for most patients.

The good news? We can deliver customized scar revision with no surgical downtime and no recovery period. If you have an unsightly scar from surgery, injury, acne or another cause, it may be time to seek treatment.

Your treatment will depend on what type of scar you have.

Keloid Scars

Keloid Scars are the result of overcompensation during the healing process. The body produces too much scar tissue, resulting in a scar that protrudes outward.

Contracture Scars

Contracture Scars result when the skin has been burned. These look like the skin has been pulled tight, and they often hinder movement due to tightened tissues.

Hypertrophic Scars

Hypertrophic Scars are raised, red scars, caused by excessive collagen, which contributes to the scar rising above the skin level.

Acne Scars

Acne Scars come after severe acne has disappeared. These create a dimpled or pitted look on the skins surface.

Treatment Options

With almost as many kinds of scars as there are stories behind them, there is really no single treatment that is universally perfect for everyone. Instead, we tailor a treatment plan to you and your specific situation and goals, ultimately setting us up for success with your scars.

That being said, most scars can be treated non-surgically with lasers, but because there are several different types of scars with varying degrees of severity, some may require a surgical revision.

We’d love to invite you to visit us for a one-on-one consultation where we can discuss your goals and start building a treatment plan to help you feel and look your best again. Non-invasive options such as Micro-dermabrasion or Chemical Peels are also effective at treating minor scars from Acne.

Your consultation will be a one-on-one meeting with one of our medical professionals where we can discuss your specific needs and start developing a personalized plan to achieve your goals.
