Scars detract from your appearance whether they’re due to a trauma, an illness like chicken pox, or a skin condition like acne. Reasons for dissatisfaction with scars include:
- Contour irregularities
- Skin level differences
- Color variation
- Distortion of normal structures
Initial scar treatment involves massage and topical application of silicone. Once fully mature (6-12 months), unacceptable scars can be revised in a number of ways. Scar excision and closure is a straight forward in office procedure that can convert an ugly eye sore into a well hidden fine line.
