Scars are visible signs that remain after a wound has healed. They are unavoidable results of injury or surgery, and their development can be unpredictable. Poor healing may contribute to scars that are obvious, unsightly or disfiguring. Even a wound that heals well can result in a scar that affects your appearance. Scars may be raised or recessed, different in colour or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.
Treatment Options to Consider
- Simple topical treatments.
- Minimally invasive procedures.
- Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure.
Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture but treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring present.
Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
