Scar Treatment

Scars are composed of fibrous tissue and are a natural part of the healing process. They come in infinite shapes, sizes, and compositions. They can range from sunken to flat to raised, and may be red, pink, white, or a darker color. A scar will never fully go away, but there are several dermatological treatments that can minimize their appearance.

Doctor Heidi offers several dermatological treatments that can minimize their appearance. Let Doctor Heidi help you treat your scar today.

Treatment Options Include:



Dermabrasion

Removing the upper layer of the skin to encourage healing and renewal of the skin.



Chemical Peels

Removes damaged upper layers of skin to improve the appearance of scars.



Collagen Injections

Fills in the skin in depressed scars, commonly caused by acne.



Cortisone Injections

Helps to soften and shrink scars.



Cryosurgery

Freezes the top skin layers to reduce the size of scars.



Surgical Scar Revision

Editing existing scars to make them smaller, less noticeable, or to restore use and mobility.


 

    Scars can fade on their own, but this may take years. It also does not solve other complications that the scar may cause. Scars in noticeable places can make you self-conscious and distract people from the rest of you.
