Scar Revision – Skin Care Rejuvenation – Oklahoma
- Posted on: Feb 14 2014
Whether they are accidental or a result of surgery, scars can make a big impact on our appearance. There isn’t a way to make them disappear, but there are ways to reduce their appearance. Scar revision is a cosmetic procedure that involves laser skin treatment or chemical peels that are capable of softening the appearance of scars.
Scar revision is an effective way to reduce the appearance of many different types of scars. Some of the more common types of scars are keloid and hypertrophic scars. Both scar types appear as raised, red tissue that puckers up. The scar tissue can appear anywhere on the body and may take over a year to start to fade. Keloid scars can expand beyond the borders of the original wound, whereas hypertrophic scars do not.
Consult with a board certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor for more information about scar revision.
