A common skin related problem that patients discuss with us is scar revision. People with conspicuous scars on their face or neck are often uncomfortable or insecure about their appearance. Aside from being a cosmetic problem, scars can sometimes interfere with the normal functioning.
While scars cannot be completely erased, there are several surgical techniques and nonsurgical techniques that can turn them into thinner, less noticeable lines that discretely blend into the normal creases and contours of your face. The technique that is used will depend on the characteristics of the scar, such as its size and depth, its direction, the blood supply and the color of your skin.
