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.

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.

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

We at StarkMD Plastic Surgery and Aesthetic Center hope this post finds all of our patients safe and healthy. Due to the current COVID-19 situation starting Monday, March 16th, we will limit appointments to those that are necessary only (lacerations or emergencies, post-operative patients needing follow up, etc.). We are still open--feel free to call for questions or to schedule future appointments. Although a difficult decision, we feel this is an important one for the good of our community, our patients and their families. If you are currently scheduled to come in to the office in the next 2 weeks, the office staff will be in touch with you regarding the status of your appointment. For new consultations scheduled in the coming weeks or those of you who wish to schedule in the near future, we are offering video consultations via Skype or FaceTime to get your process started until we see you pre-operatively. Otherwise, you may reschedule your appointments for the soonest we have available after March 31st.
