Individuals with unwanted scars due to acne, Cesarean birth, burns, previous surgeries, skin infections, piercings, cleft lip repair surgery, and traumatic injuries are good candidates for scar revision.
Scar revision is ideal for those who have optimistic yet realistic expectations regarding the procedure’s results. Non-smokers are best, and smokers may need to quit before their procedure. Patients must have no active skin infections in the target areas.
Your Scar Revision Consultation
Dr. Glavas will meet you for a consultation, where the two of you will discuss your medical history, including past and current health issues, previous surgeries, medications, and vitamins or supplements.
He will check the color and thickness of your scar and your skin’s elasticity. He will then discuss available scar revision options. After the two of you have chosen a treatment method, he will explain the process, including potential risks and cost.
What Is Scar Revision Like?
Dr. Glavas has to offer multiple treatment options. These may vary based on the type and degree of scarring and can include:
- Simple topical treatments
- Minimally invasive procedures
- Factional Laser Resurfacing
- Surgical revision with advanced techniques in wound closure
Laser treatment with a CO2 Fractional laser system is one of the newest treatments that Dr. Glavas offers. It is an office-based procedure performed with topical or no anesthesia. This laser treatment may significantly improve acne scars, burn scars, and surgical or traumatic scars.
Scar revision surgery is meant to minimize the scar so that it is more consistent with your surrounding skin tone and texture.
Although scar revision can provide a more pleasing cosmetic result or improve a scar that has healed poorly, a scar cannot be completely erased.
What Is Aftercare Like?
Recovery after getting scar revision depends on your choice of treatment. It takes months to see results from topical treatments, while it requires several sessions if you choose resurfacing treatments.
The results of your scar revision surgery will likely be long-lasting. The procedure may not always erase the scars, but it can improve their color, stiffness, size, thickness, and texture.
