What is scar revision?

Scar revision at Thomas Dermatology is a cosmetic procedure that minimizes the appearance of noticeable scars, allowing them to blend in with surrounding skin texture and tone. The procedure offers numerous benefits, including improved skin appearance.

Some of the many advantages associated with scar revision at Thomas Dermatology include scars that are:

Which type of scar revision treatment is best for me?

To find out which type of scar revision treatment is best for you, your surgeon reviews your medical history, discusses your desired outcome, and examines areas of your body containing visible scars. They personalize each treatment plan based on the type of scar, your skin type, and preferences. 

If you have a small scar, noninvasive treatments like laser or radiofrequency procedures, topical creams or gels, dermabrasion, chemical peels, or injections might be all that’s needed to minimize the appearance of your scar. Alternatively, larger scars often require surgical revision to maximize your results.

What happens during scar revision?

There’s no special preparation needed prior to scar revision, but make sure your skin is clean and avoid wearing makeup or lotion the day of your procedure. 

During scar revision at Thomas Dermatology, your surgeon numbs the affected skin to ensure you avoid discomfort. They might make tiny incisions to repair, reconstruct, or remove parts of larger scars. If needed, your specialist can stitch the area closed or use medical adhesive tape.

What should I expect after the procedure?

There’s no downtime after scar revision at Thomas Dermatology, so you can resume a normal routine immediately. However, make sure to keep the treatment area clean, apply topical medication if needed, and follow all post-care instructions as directed by your surgeon. 

Protect your skin from the sun and attend follow-up visits with your provider to ensure the treated scar heals properly.
