Scar Revision Options
Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are the unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Scar revision options include minimally invasive in-office treatments to scar revision surgery. Nearly any type of scar, whether it has been caused by a previous surgery, injury or acne may be treated.
Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased. Scar revision is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any standard.
