Our Treatment Philosophy for Scars
Scars can occur after any injury to the skin. In a normal scar, the skin naturally starts to rebuild collagen to replace and strengthen the damaged skin. Sometimes, the skin heals too aggressively and a thickened hypertrophic or keloid scar can form.
When scars become objectionable, we can treat them in many ways, depending on the appearance of the scar. Thick scars can be injected with Kenalog or 5- fluorouracil to help flatten or soften them. Depressed scars can be treated with subcision and filled with a filler. Wavy scars can also be treated with subcision and injected with sculptra. Textural unevenness can be treated with fractional laser resurfacing or Renuvion resurfacing.
