Injured skin can only heal by scarring if the injury is of sufficient depth. However, these are many ways to reduce the appearance of scars if they are unsightly. In some instances the scar may be removed and the wound repaired in a different manner to reduce the likelihood of scar formation. Other times, a scar may be treated with injections, silicone bandages or even a laser to reduce its appearance.
Every scar is different, so if you wish to discuss the possibilities of improving a scar, please call for an appointment.
