Scar Revision

Minimize a Scar

Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize a scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.

What is scar revision surgery?

Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.

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 color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape or location.

Your treatment options may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:

  • Simple topical treatments, such as bioCorneum+
  • Minimally invasive procedures
  • Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure

Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
