Scar Revision Description

Scar revision is a surgical procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of many types of scars. This surgical treatment helps to restore skin function in addition to correcting the skin’s appearance.

Laser Scar Revision Treatment

Laser surgery is one of the most successful means of treating scars. The fractional CO2 laser (Lumenis™ FX) is the latest device used to treat this condition, and the results are often very impressive. Our Pulse Dye laser (Candela VBeam) is also effective at treating scarring, especially if there is a red or vascular component to the area.

Surgical Scar Revision Treatment

The process of surgical scar revision involves removing the scar itself and joining the surrounding normal skin together in a method that makes the skin look more natural. This treatment is recommended for scars that are wide, long, an abnormal shape or size, or scars that are in a highly visible location.

Sometimes, a technique using uneven or spread out incision lines (a plasty) is used to make the scar appear less obvious. Surgical scar revision is done under local anesthesia in our office.

What to expect after surgical scar revision

Following scar revision, a light pressure dressing may be applied to cover the area. Sutures are usually removed one to two weeks after surgery. Normal activities can be resumed almost immediately for minor revisions, and soon after the procedure for larger revisions. Sun exposure should be limited or avoided if possible for several months following the treatment.

We have several techniques for treating scars, including traumatic, burn, chemical, and acne scars. Our aesthetic team will be happy to discuss your options with you, in a free, one-on-one consultation.
