Methods of scar removal available with Webster, TX doctor
- Posted on: Aug 15 2022
A scar is a mark remaining on the skin after an injury or wound has healed. Scars can be caused by burns, cuts, scratches, surgery, and acne. They can vary in size, shape, color, and depth. These imperfections on the skin, especially those on the face and other more noticeable areas of the body, can cause patients embarrassment or make them feel self-conscious about how they look. At the practice of Dr. Kimberly Carpin of Webster, TX, patients can find an effective treatment to fade and lessen the appearance of these scars with scar treatment options.
What can be done about scarring?
Scars may be treated in various ways, depending on different factors. This includes the type of scar, the severity of the scar, and how long the scar has been there. While a scar can rarely be completely removed, it can be lessened in appearance with any of the following services available with Dr. Kimberly Carpin:
- Laser therapy – using laser light energy that penetrates deep into the skin, patients can boost their natural collagen and elastin production to help lessen the appearance of a scar.
- Surgical excisions – in some instances, removing the scar with surgical excision may be beneficial, though this procedure can leave a different scar behind afterward.
- Microneedling treatments – patients with scarring such as rolling acne scars, may find microneedling to be an effective way to reduce their appearance, smoothing the skin’s texture and tone.
- Steroid injections – scars such as keloid scars may be treated with an injection of steroid medications to help shrink them.
After any of these treatments, patients can also use unique silicone products that can be applied to the scar to soften its appearance and also help fade it with time. These treatments are done for up to two months and can be used alongside traditional scar reduction services.
