Scarring is a natural, but an undesirable part of the healing process. While full coverage concealers and neutralizing colors might manage to mask the unpleasant marks of scarring temporarily, they certainly won’t eliminate them. That is why we at Americas Cosmetic Surgery Centers offer scar removal to help you get rid of these unsightly scars.
Thanks to advances in modern medicine there are now treatments for many types of scarring and other skin issues. Whether it’s keloid or atrophic, many scars can now be effectively eliminated.
After your skin becomes compromised, the body works tirelessly to repair itself. In an attempt to seal up the wound, scar tissue begins to grow over the wound to protect the area and heal itself. Sometimes this tissue grows excessively over the abrasion, creating a smooth but tough growth called a keloid.
Keloids are not dangerous to your health, but they can be visually unpleasing. Luckily, there are a variety of treatments for such scars. These include:
- Laser treatments
- Hormone injections to reduce the inflammation
- Post-surgery pressure pads
- Radiation treatments
- Hypertrophic Scarring
These scars are similar to keloids, but less severe. They are caused by an injury to the deep skin tissue layers, called the dermis. As the body attempts to heal itself, it creates excess amounts of collagen. This causes the skin to rise and a visible scar begins to emerge. Hypertrophic scarring can be treated through a variety of scar removal treatments. Some treatment methods include:
- Laser therapy
- Occlusive dressings
- Compressions therapy
- Radiation therapy
- Atrophic Scarring
Atrophic scars are depressed or pitted lesions in the skin. They are most often associated with severe acne. It’s often found in a variety of different shapes and forms, so it’s important to choose a treatment option that suits your needs.
Common treatment options include:
- Full face chemical peels
