Scars are visible marks on the skin 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 (i.e. hypertrophic scars, keloids), different in color or texture from surrounding healthy tissue, or particularly noticeable due to their size, shape, or location.
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.
