Scars form when there is an injury to the skin. Whether the scar developed after a surgical procedure or an accidental trauma, it can be a source of concern when the scar is noticeable and on the face. Facial scars can cause disfigurement as well as distortion of facial features or functions. Scar revision is one of the most challenging treatments in plastic surgery, as it requires a keen understanding of the different types of scars as well as a delicate hand in improving the scar without causing further skin trauma.
When treating your facial scar, Dr. Parsa will carefully evaluate the location, thickness, texture and color of the injured area of skin. Our practice is qualified to treat scars that are depressed, discolored or restricting movement. While surgical scar revision is an option, many patients choose Scar Reductase injections as a non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of unsightly facial scarring. Scar Reductase may be able to improve the following common types of scars:
Hypertrophic Scars – Thick clusters of scar tissues that form raised areas of red, lighter or darker skin. These types of scars can spread or become wider over time.
Keloid Scars – These scars an extend beyond the borders of the original wound and are typically larger than hypertrophic scars. Keloids are unsightly balls of scar tissue. They can also be painful and itchy for some patients. Due to the minimal amount of underlying fatty tissue, keloids often develop on the face and other noticeable areas of the body such as the neck and shoulders.
When it comes to treating facial scars, Dr. Parsa uses an individualized approach. Each patient may heal differently and thus require a unique scar revision treatment.
