Do you have a scar from a previous surgery or injury that you hate looking at? Or is your scar obvious and unsightly? There are ways to minimize these scars.

 

Scar revision surgery can minimize the scar so it’s more consistent with your skin tone and texture near the scar.

 

Scar revisions can be performed on people of all ages.

 

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, you might be a candidate for scar revision treatments if: you are bothered by a scar, you are healthy, you don’t smoke, you have realistic goals for your surgery, and you don’t have acne or other skin diseases in the area that is going to be treated.
