what is scar revision?
As a very common skin issue, scars can be located on any area of the face and body. For some people, a scar is an unwanted reminder of an old wound or some other condition that caused a disruption to the skin’s surface. While some scars aren't an issue, some scars are unsightly and unappealing. They can be too wide or too big, dark, bumpy, raised, or recessed. Based on where the scar is placed and its condition, Dr. Alison Kang at Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology can perform scar revision treatments to improve how it looks, reducing the size and improving the overall appearance of your scar.
what can i expect from scar revision?
Depending on the circumstances of the case, Dr. Kang may use a local anesthetic or a topical numbing cream. Individual treatments or a combination of the following treatments may be used to revise scars, including acne scars, at Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology:
Chemical reconstruction of skin scars (CROSS): Trichloroacetic acid or a phenol peel is used to elevate atrophic scars, like acne or chickenpox scars, or depressed scars. It usually takes 4 – 6 sessions until optimal results are achieved.
Intralesional steroid or fluorouracil injection: An intralesional steroid is a corticosteroid effective in treating keloid or raised scars. Fluorouracil injections promote degradation of hypertrophic scars and keloids and can be used in combination with a steroid.
Ablative laser (CO2): This form of laser resurfacing is a powerful method to improve extensively sun damaged skin, pigmentation, scarring, and deep wrinkles. The procedure may involve a topical application of numbing, local anesthetic injection, or even light sedation to ease any discomfort.
Non-ablative fractionated laser (Fraxel®): This laser technology targets a fraction of the skin, leaving the surrounding skin untouched, to deliver a safe and effective treatment to reduce the appearance of skin texture, wrinkles, pigmentation and scars.
Microneedling with platelet-rich plasma (PRP): This procedure combines microneedling and PRP therapy to apply PRP serum deep into the skin, resulting in the minimized appearance of wrinkles, scars, large pores, and other skin issues.
Subcision: Not suitable for all scars, subcision involves inserting a hypodermic needle into the skin directly beneath the scar to loosen and break the tissue underneath the scar. This procedure lifts the scar and triggers collagen production to diminish the appearance of scars.
Surgical excision: Scar tissue is surgically excised or cut out and then closed with special cosmetic techniques to produce a less visible scar.
Prestige Cosmetic Dermatology Reviews
The surgery was great, it was quick and painless
I love Dr. Kang! She is thorough, personable, and excellent at her craft! The facility is pristine and beautiful. It’s also very easy to book appointments online and her office is excellent with follow up. She also has the best skincare products in office. I’m so happy with my results.
I had a lot (and I mean l lot) of "barnacles" (keratosis-bumps) on my arms and legs. Dr. Kang was very thorough and meticulous when using liquid nitrogen to treat even the smallest of bumps. I have been to other dermatologists for this in the past and not one has done the excellent job that she did. I left there wondering why the others couldn't have done this in the past. And her schedule allowed me to come there on a Saturday which made it easier for me to not take time off from work. Thank you
I was referred by my insurance provider for some minor cosmetic work. Staff was very kind and helpful when making my appointment. Dr. Kang was super friendly and explained step by step on what she was doing during my procedure. I felt really comfortable and ecstatic with the outcome. The facility was really clean and in a great location.
Great service. Very clean facility and knowledgeable of options.
