Scars

Whether from an accident, surgery, acne, or other causes, scars can be very distressing for patients. Some scars may be raised and red and these so called “hypertrophic scars” often respond to laser therapy that targets the extra blood vessels within the scar tissue. Other scars are depressed or “atrophic” and these tend to improve with treatment techniques that cause the body’s own natural collagen to be added to the skin through various methods. Some scars are even pigmented and lasers like those used to remove tattoo ink or sun spots may be used to blend the colors of the scar tissue. Frequently, several treatment options are used for a single scar to maximally improve its appearance.
