Address Unsightly Scars on the Face and Body with Scar Revision Services
- Posted on: Aug 15 2019
Do you have a scar on your face or body that is unattractive and embarrassing? Are you unhappy with the visibility of a scar from a previous surgery or trauma? Patients in the Houston, TX area who are interested in addressing scarring are welcome to speak to a professional about scar revision services at Dr. Kimberly Carpin Plastic Surgery.
What is scar revision?
When wounds heal, there are times when they will leave behind a scar. While scars on the body that are easily covered with clothing are often not a big concern, the ones that are visible are often the most embarrassing for men, women, and even children. By undergoing scar revision services, our patients are able to reduce the visibility of their scar—or the entire scar altogether—via a variety of methods.
Some of the options available for addressing unwanted scars include treatments such as:
- Surgical excision
- Microneedling treatments
- Laser light therapy
- Steroid injections
Patients must have realistic expectations of the results. Scars cannot be completely removed. However, they can be treated in a myriad of ways to reduce their appearance and cause them to fade over time. Many of our patients seek scar revision services to reduce the appearance of their scar if it has not done so on its own.
