Scar revision refers to surgical and nonsurgical techniques that minimize the appearance of scars. With a wide range of topical solutions, injectables, laser treatments, and surgical procedures, the team at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can treat and smooth acne scars, surgical scars, and many other types of scarring.
Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery Group can address raised and depressed scars, such as:
The team also treats keloid scars, which develop from an overproduction of collagen, an essential protein in the healing process.
Depending on the depth and severity of your scarring, the team may recommend one or more of the following revision procedures:
Chemical peels are topical solutions the team applies to your skin to carefully remove the surface layer. A chemical peel can minimize mild pigmentation abnormalities, such as light acne scars and uneven skin texture.
Microdermabrasion is a handheld device that uses fine crystals to exfoliate the skin’s surface. This nonsurgical treatment can improve overall skin tone and texture while minimizing the appearance of mild scarring.
Collagen injections are dermal fillers that plump up depressed scars, such as ice-pick acne scars. The injections contain collagen to stimulate cell regeneration and repair damage from scarring.
Laser therapy uses a focused beam of light to resurface the skin with minimal pain or downtime. Lasers can help treat deeper scarring than topical solutions, though multiple treatments may be necessary for long-term results.
Dermarolling may minimize small scars, skin surface irregularities, surgical scars, and acne scars. The medical device rolls across the skin and accelerates natural exfoliation and activates natural growth factors, resulting in healthier skin and a smooth, even-toned appearance.
Embrace delivers active tension relief, directly treating the root cause of scarring. This procedure stabilizes the skin and prevents scar formation.
During scar revision surgery, the team removes the scarred tissue and uses Embrace therapy, laser resurfacing, and injectables to promote smoother skin.
