Facial scars can be a source of embarrassment and discouragement for many patients. Whether they occur due to an injury, an infection, or something as simple as acne, we have many different solutions that can help.
In some cases, raised scars with overactive scar tissue will require steroid injections to calm down the inflammatory process. This can require a series of injections spaced out over many months to be effective. If the scar is very hypertrophic or has formed a keloid, it may require surgical excision or revision followed by post-operative care. Also, some scars are located in an area of the face that is very noticeable or oriented in such a way on the face that they are very conspicuous and possibly even disfiguring. Dr. Richardson and Dr. Cain have many surgical and non-surgical techniques to improve the appearance of various facial scars.
Some scars may need to be re-arranged or removed and re-closed in order to facilitate proper wound healing and a better aesthetic result. Other scars might respond well to filler injections, chemical peels, or laser skin resurfacing treatments. As we are experts in facial aesthetics, we can help you review all of these options in detail.
If you have suffered a facial injury and are concerned about the appearance of the scar or the closure of the wound, it is best that we see you soon rather than waiting to see the final result of the scar.
