Who is a candidate for scar treatment?
When the skin is injured from a cut or tear, the body heals by forming scar tissue. Individuals with unattractive scars such as those that are wide, sunken, red, raised, pale or even cause distortion of other parts of the face like the eyes or lips are candidates for scar revision.
What can be done for a scar?
Various treatments are available for scar revision including recreating the incision to make it less visible, dermabrasion, laser resurfacing, steroid injection, or some combination of these treatments. Dr. Olarte will review which treatment is best for you during your consultation.
