What methods of scar removal are available with Dr. Kimberly Carpin?

When the skin has been injured or traumatized, it develops a scar. Scarring is a perfectly normal way for skin to heal following cuts, incisions, and injuries, but this doesn’t mean that you have to live with the scar forever. Some scars do not heal properly, or are still extremely noticeable years after they occurred. Webster, TX area patients who are interested in reducing the appearance of a scar on the face and body are welcome to call  Dr. Kimberly Carpin to discuss their options.

What methods of scar removal are available with Dr. Kimberly Carpin?

  • Surgical incision – depending on the size, shape, and location of the scar, surgical excision may be required. This is especially true for scars such as keloids which can form large masses in the area. Surgical excision will leave a scar, but often one far less noticeable than the previous one.
  • Laser therapy – laser light can be used in many areas of medicine, including scar reduction. Laser light energy can penetrate into the skin and help fade away superficial scars.
  • Microneedling – by using a device with hundreds of tiny needles to create small micro wounds on the skin, this can stimulate the skin’s collagen production to provide healing properties that reduce the appearance of scarring. This is typically used on scars on the face, and can address other skin concerns as well.
  • Steroid injections – injecting steroid medications into the scar tissue can help to reduce the appearance of redness and address itching or burning that can be associated with certain scars.
  • Dermal fillers – patients with acne scars may find improvement with the use of dermal fillers, specifically for ice pick scars that are deep. The filler adds volume and smooths the skin for temporary reduction of the scars appearance.
