Scar Revision Treatment Options 

Dr. G will evaluate the type of scar you have, how severe it is, and how long you’ve had it in order to determine the right scar revision treatment plan. Some options include the following:

Microneedling 

Microneedling is a collagen-inducing skin treatment that breaks down old scar tissue while promoting the formation of brand-new skin cells. The fresh new collagen that it produces creates smoother skin and helps to fill in scarred areas. 

Fractora 

Fractora™ is a radiofrequency-based treatment that takes a two-pronged approach to scar revision: it utilizes both skin resurfacing and ablation. Fractora kick-starts natural collagen production, which results in smoother skin and scars that are more filled-in. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels are often used to reduce the appearance of superficial scars. When the chemical solution is applied, the top layer of damaged skin is removed. By removing this top layer, the skin regenerates. This results in a smoother, less visible appearance of scars.

Dermal Fillers

Depending on your specific scars, dermal fillers may be an excellent option. They are often used in combination with other scar revision treatments to enhance results. Radiesse®, Juvéderm®, and Restylane® are all known for getting great results for scar reduction. 

Scar Revision Surgery

If none of the above scar revision options are getting satisfactory results, surgery may be needed. In surgical scar revision, the entire scar is removed, and the skin is then re-joined. A new scar will develop from this, but the objective is to create a scar that is less visible. 

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer has been shown to soften scars, fill voids, and diminish the thick, fibrous quality of scars. Many times fat transfer is a superior way of improving the texture, firmness, or contour of scarred tissue permanently.
