Scar Removal

What Types of Scars Can Be Effectively Removed?

Mild surface scars and skin imperfections can be sufficiently removed using different types of cosmetic procedures. New technology allows for larger, more dramatic scars to be removed with new skin grafting techniques. Chemical peels, microdermabrasions, and some forms of laser techniques are beneficial in minimizing the look of minor scars and skin flaws. Scars that go deep into the body are much harder to remove, but their appearance can be diminished with the use of specific techniques. Acne scars and facial blemishes are often treated with laser technology and require very little after care.

Is the Process Painful?

Depending on the size and nature of the scar in question, most scar removal techniques are not extremely painful. Minimally invasive techniques may result in mild irritation, redness, and slight swelling but these side effects are temporary and will only last a few days. If the procedure was extensive and required any type of incision, the risk of infection is increased. This will also increase the amount of discomfort, but it should be able to be sufficiently controlled with over the counter medication. Scar removal techniques vary in the degree of intensity, but for the most part, they have few side effects and the results are acceptable. The techniques can also be used to remove tattoos.

How Long Does it Take to Heal?

Depending on the type of scar removal technique being used, the healing time can fluctuate from just a few days to a couple of weeks. With proper care and treatment, the area in question will heal much faster and the risk of infection associated with the procedure will be dramatically reduced. Doctors who specialize in scar removal treatments and techniques know tips and tricks to reduce the appearance of any type of blemish that would otherwise be associated with the procedure. Their ability to sufficiently correct any damage to the skin will reduce the noticeable effects of the procedure.
