Scars can remain after injury, acne, or even previous medical procedures. Whatever the cause, scar removal treatments can help reduce their appearance and produce smoother, more evenly colored skin. The Herschthal Practice offers scar removal to patients in Fort Lauderdale, Boynton Beach, and Boca Raton, FL.
What is Scar Removal/Revision?
Scar removal and scar revision are techniques used to reduce the appearance of scars, improving their size and color. Scars are often left behind after an injury or surgery and are a cosmetic trait that many would like to minimize. Scar removal can help make these scars less noticeable, helping patients feel more confident and enjoy smoother skin.
Can Scar Removal Be Used for Acne Scar Removal?
Individuals with mild to severe acne may experience acne scarring. Acne scarring may persist long after the acne has cleared up and is one of the biggest reasons that patients pursue scar removal treatment. At The Herschthal Practice, we offer acne scar removal treatments to help patients achieve clearer skin for good.
How Are Scar Removal Treatments Performed?
There are a number of techniques that can be used for scar removal. Most often, we use laser therapy to minimize the appearance of scars. With laser energy, we can eliminate the damaged, discolored scar tissue from the skin’s surface. This process also stimulates collagen production, which encourages the growth of healthy, radiant skin. As a result, discolored scar tissue is replaced with fresh new skin. We may also recommend steroid injections, which can help flatten out scars and cause their color to fade. For patients who are receiving treatment with us and are concerned about developing scars afterwards, we offer medications to help lessen scarring before it forms. This typically includes the use of anti-inflammatory medications.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Scar Removal?
Scar removal treatments often require multiple treatments before significant results can be seen. During the weeks following treatment, you will notice a gradual improvement in the appearance of your scar. During your consultation, we will explain the kind of results you can expect from treatment, as not all scars can be completely eliminated.
