What are my scar revision options?  

Scar revision can include one or many treatments, all depending upon the size, shape, type, and placement of your scar. As a double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Stark brings the weight of his considerable skill and years of experience and training to bear for every scar revision patient. In private consultation with you, Dr. Stark will help you make an informed choice.

Available options for scar revision patients include

    Topical treatments

    Specialized creams and gels, compression, and other topical treatments may be used to help reduce skin discoloration and aid in the healing of other scar revision treatments.

    Laser and light therapy

    Laser and light therapy can help encourage the skin to produce additional collagen and reduce a scar’s prominence. Both the Sciton profractional laser and Halo laser are utilized in scar treatments. Sciton BBL can also be utilized in the treatment of scars by removing pigment and red discoloration from the scar.

    Chemical peels

    Chemical peels involve the spreading of proprietary chemicals on the skin to remove the outer layer. This too may reduce the appearance of scars.

    Injectables

    Dermal fillers may be used to fill in scars that are recessed from the normal barrier of the skin, creating a smoother overall look to the area and reducing the appearance of the scar.

    Dermabrasion

    Dermabrasion can be used to remove the top layer of skin of the targeted area, which can result in a markedly reduced appearance of a scar

    Surgical removal

    In some cases, it may be necessary and possible to fully excise the scar and resurface the area with skin from another part of your body or a pharmaceutical tissue substitutes.
