Scars can occur from injury to the skin. Although nothing can restore the skin to its original state, there are techniques available to reduce the appearance of scarring.
Common strategies for scar management include:
Acne scars – injections, subcision and Fractional CO2 laser Skin Resurfacing may be used to improve acne scarring.
Keloid scars – Raised scars can be treated with steroid injections to flatten or soften the scar. Lasers combined with steroid injections are often used to achieve even better results.
Depressed scars – Fractional CO2 laser Skin Resurfacing can be used to improve the appearance of depressed scars by stimulating new collagen formation.
