Scars are a lingering reminder of some type of skin trauma, whether from acne, injury, or surgery. Scars can make you feel self-conscious and can even be embarrassing. Scars can be difficult to get rid of without professional treatment. Home remedies and over the counter scar treatments to reduce the appearance of scars can be ineffective and leave some people disappointed. More effective solutions for scar revision can be found through a certified dermatologist.
Dermatologists offer several treatment options for scar revision to leave skin smooth, with less noticeable scars. Fractional CO2 resurfacing, reexcision, dermabrasion, and Intense Pulsed Light treatment are some effective treatments for reducing scarring.
There's no need to walk around with a scar, which can be embarrassing and bothersome. Seek out a qualified, board-certified dermatologist for a solution to reduce the appearance of scars. To find out more about scar revision treatments and which option is best for you, speak to a dermatologist at the OC Skin Institute.
