Many people are self-conscious about scars on the face, and other parts of the body, and most of us have them. Scars may be the result of trauma, acne or prior surgeries. Depending on the type, size, and location of the scar, different treatments may be used.
It is important to understand that a scar can never be completely removed, but the appearance of a scar can be dramatically improved to a point where it is barely visible. Laser resurfacing, injectable fillers, and surgical excision or surgical revision are some options that your surgeon will discuss with you to help make the scar almost imperceptible.
Different skin tones, skin types, and the location of the scar will determine the best treatment option, and help predict your result. Your surgeon will evaluate the scar, and explain the advantages and disadvantages of each option with you in order to formulate the best plan for improving your scar.
