Scar Revision

As wounds heal, they form scar tissue and some scars are unsightly or quite conspicuous. Some form thick clusters of tissue at the site of a wound. Keloid scars are larger than the original wound and can itchy or even painful. And contracture scars can even restrict movement.

Scar revision seeks to minimize their appearance and effect, and the kind of scar will dictate the type of treatment.

It can involve a surgical procedure, a minimally invasive treatment or even a simple topical remedy. However none of these can completely erase a scar.
