Scarring is a natural response to trauma. When our skin is damaged, our body’s cells scramble to patch up the wounds. Unfortunately, these patches aren’t always pretty – that’s where scar revision comes in. At Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Warner can reduce the appearance of scars and give you the smooth skin you deserve. These procedures are done using a variety of methods, some of which are completely non-invasive. Schedule your consultation with a board certified cosmetic surgeon to learn more about our options.
What causes scars?
Scarring occurs as a natural response to physical injury. Injuries can include anything from an acne flare-up to a serious surgical procedure or accident. When your body is injured, collagen is produced and rushes to the scene. Unfortunately, excess collagen often causes uneven healing and discolored, bumpy scar formation.
What are the scar revision options at Florida Eyelid and Cosmetic Surgery?
- Depressed Scars – Depressed scars, such as acne scars, can be treated with microneedling or subcision. These treatments are recommended to stimulate collagen regrowth.
- Raised Scars – Raised scars can be treated with microneedling or fractional laser resurfacing.
- Pink Scars – Pink scars can be treated with laser skin resurfacing treatments.
- Brown Scars – These hyperpigmented scars can be treated with skin-lightening creams, pads, or chemical peels.
Is scar revision the best option?
Most scar revision procedures can be done using lasers, microneedling, or even chemical peels. These treatments are non-surgical and typically don’t require any downtime. While some mild side effects can be expected after certain treatments, the treatments themselves are not dangerous. In most cases, you should be able to return to the rest of your day right after your visit.
