When we sustain a wound, our body heals and forms a scar. Scars are unavoidable aspects of surgery or injury, and poor healing may cause scars to be unsightly. When this occurs, scar revision can help to improve the scar’s appearance.

What is Scar Revision?

Scar revision surgery can minimize the appearance of a scar so that it blends more evenly with the surrounding skin. While scar revision can help to improve the aesthetic appearance of a scar, it cannot eliminate the appearance of the scar completely.

How Does Scar Revision Work?

Scar revision can be achieved using many methods, including topical treatments, injectable treatments, and surface treatments. The type of cosmetic treatment used will depend on the severity of the scar, the type of scar, and the size and location of the scar.

Scar Revision Results

Results from scar revision are long-lasting. Final results may take several months to become apparent as the scar heals and fades.
