Improve the Appearance of Your Scars

Most people have a scar or two that are no big deal. However, others have unpleasant scars obtained from trauma or previous surgeries that can cause emotional distress. Because everyone has different skin types and healing, some scars will be more noticeable and last longer than others. Dr. David Allison discusses the potential for scarring with every plastic surgery procedure he performs, and some patients choose scar revision to improve their previous surgical outcomes.

Scar Revision Options

If you have a scar that you would like to minimize, Dr. Allison offers several treatment options:

  • Topical treatments
  • Injectable treatments including steroid injections
  • Surface treatments such as dermabrasion or chemical peels
  • Surgical revision with “layered” closure of the removed scar
