The Top Benefits of Scar Revision By Milan Lombardi MD on January 04, 2024

Most surgical procedures leave scars. Although our expert team of surgical staff has developed techniques to decrease visible scars, it is still possible for them to appear. Whether you are noticing a recent scar from surgery or you sustained a permanent mark after an injury, you could be a great candidate for one of our scar revision practices at Synergy MD. Below, we look at the top benefits of scar revision.

The Top Benefits of Scar Revision

Today, we want to review more details about our scar revision treatments. We will also give you the top benefits of scar revision so you can understand how this amazing process works to lift deep blemishes from your skin. This is a non-surgical option that allows Tampa patients to improve their appearance by diminishing scars.

Different Treatments for Different Scars

We offer a few different types of treatment depending on the scar you have. No two scars are the same because the skin heals in different ways. Depending on the part of the body your scar is on, as well as how long it has been there, you may face different options from our surgical staff.

Common types of scars include:

  • Contract scars that come from third-degree burns, usually looking shiny and smooth
  • Hypertrophic scars from extra collagen or outside skin damage, which look like raised red areas of skin
  • Keloid scars that form on top of the skin, causing extra collagen to stick out and grow
  • Acne scars that are apparent on the face and shoulders, marked by red and blotchy patches of bumps
Topical solutions may work to heal certain surface-level scars such as keloids or acne. However, more intensive treatment is usually required for injury or surgery scars.

Scars Have Different Side Effects

Your scars may already be enough of a blemish on your otherwise perfect skin. However, symptoms can become more than just cosmetic. Scars can cause your skin to stretch, sag, turn red, or become permanently infected. Though scars are a natural end to the body’s healing process, you do not have to deal with them existing on your body for the rest of your life. If your scars are causing you to itch or bleed, you especially need to seek medical assistance right away.

Avoid Hefty Scar Revision Surgery

Though there are plenty of surgical options available to help you get rid of your scars, you might benefit more from a non-surgical intervention. Removing scars through surgery puts you at risk of earning new scars. It can be more difficult to promise great results through surgery since recovery times can be quite long. Our experts recommend one of our non-surgical scar revision treatments, such as laser resurfacing. This procedure gives you much more flexibility with your schedule and your recovery time.

Non-surgical scar revision treatments are recommended for those with keloids or acne scars, since these are very surface-level blemishes. Laser resurfacing uses a heated laser light to directly target the affected cells, slowly burning them off of your skin. After recovery, you will notice that your scars are a lot less visible.

Choose Your Favorite Method of Treatment

Our dynamic laser therapies allow patients to heal their skin from the inside out. We also have additional scar revision options to smooth out any of the rough spots on your skin. In addition to laser resurfacing, we also offer microdermabrasion and microneedling. Both of these procedures involve the use of a guided machine that targets scar tissue without causing you pain.

Chemical peels are also available for those experiencing scars due to acne or a burn. While it is not always a guarantee that your scar will be completely gone, you will get to enjoy a significant reduction. This is a great way to boost your appearance so you can start feeling confident about yourself again.
