Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. Whether due to injury or surgery, even wounds that have healed well may result in scars that detract from your appearance. And poor healing can turn an otherwise acceptable scar into one that is unsightly or even disfiguring.
When a scar is very noticeable, it’s often because it is radically different from the surrounding skin. It may be raised, depressed, or have a different color or texture than the healthy tissue that surrounds it. Treatments to improve the appearance of scars generally seek to minimize these differences.
While no treatment can completely eliminate a scar, topical therapies, injectable treatments, and surgical revision with advanced wound closure techniques can help the scar blend more with the surrounding skin so it’s less conspicuous and objectionable.
Dr. Siporin will explain your options for scar revision and help you decide whether this procedure might be of benefit.
