Scars: Types and Causes
Each scar is one-of-a-kind and comes with a unique story. However, old scar tissue can cast a shadow over your natural beauty and affect your self-image. Scars are nothing more than the results of our body’s healing process. In fact, skin damage triggers an emergency production of collagen fibers, which can heal a wound but will have a different appearance than the original skin.
Scars are divided into different categories, including:
- Line scars and irregularities – These are caused by cuts, minor injuries, and skin conditions such as acne. They are a cosmetic flaw and usually don’t cause discomfort.
- Hypertrophic – These are raised and highly visible scars that are caused by an excess of collage on the wound.
- Keloids – Keloid scars are raised scars that derive from an excess of collagen. These scars tend to keep growing even after the wound has healed.
- Contractures – These scars appear as a consequence of burns, or when skin tissue is pulled together to heal a wound.
Minor scars, such as normal lines, cellulite, and stretch marks might just be a minor annoyance. But persistent, visible scars can have a profound effect on your self-image. Finding a personalized scar revision treatment might just be what you need to regain your confidence in 2022!
What To Expect From a Scar Revision Procedure
Scars are a testament to your body’s ability to heal itself, but you don’t have to carry them for the rest of your life! Some scars might be a cosmetic flaw, but others can bring pain and discomfort to your life or even impair movement.
The scar revision surgery can help you find a long-lasting solution to the challenges of carrying a scar. Scar revision treatments are tailored to your specific needs, and there are different procedures that your surgeon at Pinnacle Dermatology might use, including:
- Topical treatments such as scar creams
- Minimally invasive surgical procedures to remove the scar tissue
- Surgical procedures to remove or reposition more extended scar tissue
Whether you are looking for the perfect skincare holiday gifts for your loved ones, or a way to reduce the visibility of an old scar, scar revision treatments can improve your skin’s look in over 81% of cases.
Scar Revision Results
Scar revision treatments can be performed in one to two hours, depending on how severe the scar is. You can get your first scar revision treatment done as soon as 60-90 days after the scar matures, and the results can take several weeks to become visible.
However, the recovery process involves only minimal localized swelling and the results can last for decades! If you are not satisfied with the results after your first scar revision session, you might benefit from more than one treatment.
